    Is it just me, or does anyone else feel that these liberal baby-killers are whining about something that THEY asked for? I'm ashamed to say that my cousin's son was closely involved in the making of this video and as an attorney for Planned Parenthood has been advertising it as much as possible. He's on the verge of unfriending me from Facebook because of my insistence on responding to his liberalistic rants with the calm assurance of a christian conservative. It's quite funny how our 'discussions' often turn into him just throwing his hands in the air and saying you can't argue with idiots. I tend to take the high road as much as possible and NEVER stoop to name calling or any such rhetoric that I can't back up with FACTS.

    I'd love to hear your comments... maybe arm me with some things to say to my cousin, who claims to be a member of a local church in his hometown and claims to be a christian.

    Her argument does not add up. If abortion is covered under their current plan then where is the issue. This amendment only affects plans provided by the fed.

    Second it is a false argument equating abortion to cancer. One is elective and unnecessary(abortion) the other is a disease.

    How can she go to equating abortion with viagra to equating abortion with cancer. Viagra is not necessary but it does not end another life.

    As most of us already know, abortion is not a needed medical procedure. Abortion is an elective procedure used by some women to murder their unborn babies.

    As for your cousin, he needs to be born of God so that he can/will see the truth on this issue.

    Martin raises an interesting side bar. Exactly what is an elective surgery? Dental care, for example?

    Dental health is an important part of the health of the body.

    It affects the nutrition choices a person makes and thus whether or not they can even eat a healthy diet.

    It is the major gateway to the body through which pathological organism may pass to lungs and gut, or gain direct access into the blood stream.

    The mouth presents a warm, moist, nutrient rich environment with many hidden spaces, and mixed areation...... a breeding place and incubator for the type of bacteria which thrive at normal body temperatures.

    And the removal or treatment of infected teeth or restoring health to infected gums is essential to preventing diseases of the heart and major organ systems of the body.

    Some dental procedures should have always been covered under any major medical plan, in my estimation, but then dentists would have less control over what they recommend and the pricing. Alas, however, almost all dental procedures, even most which could otherwise be considered a medical necessity due to potential on the overall health of the person, even extraction of infected teeth, are considered elective and aren't covered under any program or plan unless one opts for separate dental insurance.

    It seems, judging from some reports, that it is easier to obtain assistance of insurance or other programs for the elective abortion procedure, which serves only to end a life, than to remove an infection from the mouth which may infect the heart or the kidney or cause an absess in the brain..... which would cost more in medical care for correction or maintanance.

    The issue of Margaret Sanger being recognized at the Smithsonian as a woman that's contributed a lot to America came up in my conversation with my lawyer-relative. He had the audacity to say that Margaret Sanger was anti-abortion and then claims that he's anti-abortion as well.

    His arguement is that abortion is always his last choice... that people should use birth control to keep from getting pregnant in the first place, but that abortion is in fact, a viable option for women to maintain their health.

    How do you argue with someone that says they're anti-abortion and uses falacies to justify their position!? I'm absolutely stumped and am totally amazed that people actually take his side in this arguement! No matter what I say he just falls back on the fact that he is anti-abortion, but that he's pro-choice. What a crock! If there's anyone on this site that's learned in the past of PP or Margaret Sanger, feel free to help me out and arm me with some critical analysis of his stance and statements concerning Sanger.

    Margaret Sanger was worse than being for abortion or birth control. She did nothing to promote morality. She saw those who were poor or the children of the poor, blacks, those with emotional problems or low intellect as being inferior, a blight upon the world and the source of its problems and advocated sterilization, abortion, and termination. She viewed motherhood as bondage to a child and marriage as bondage to a man. She really was a very wicked woman. Your lawyer cousin only knows the glossed over version being taught in history books and the blind following of many who have placed her on the pedestal of rebellion under the guise of women's rights.
