As a person who has never been pro life, I frequently find the behavior of those who agree with me to be an embarrassment. Those who support abortion are are overly emotional, condescending, obtuse and absurdly hypocritical in exchanges. Abortion is not and is not a divine right and the same people who talk about rights seem to jump through hoops with every other aspect of governmental intrusion into the lives of people. Abortion is a divine right but your right to smoke or kick back a beer must be examined by the nanny state.
The number of people seeking abortions for classic stranger rape is not statistically significant in the overall discussion of abortion.Abortion is most often a mater of economic choice and just as rape is an extreme example that is rare so are those who decide to abort for such reasons as wrong gender of the child. Abortion for gender selection does happen but it is not the norm. No doubt one could likely write a book about the vacuous reasons some make this serious decision. Of course you can get pregnant from being raped. You also can get pregnant from an affair with a married man with a wife dying of cancer or a consensual relationship with Mr Disgusting I Can't Believe I Did That Jerk. Getting pregnant via consensual poor partner choice is likely more probable than getting pregnant from being raped because these poor partner selections as in the case of John Edwards involve multiple encounters.
What did these same jerks say about investigating the rape accusation against Bill Clinton? The same people screaming about poor adjectives lionized Ted "Chapaquidick" Kennedy and stood by as the legal rights of a maid were violated to free a French Socialist Baboon.
I have always supported abortion, but the antics of those who agree with me are vile.
