Why the horror of a Process ending but not equally of a Live Result? A Process that often ends similarly around the time when many miscarriages happen. Most women do not have terminations after 8-10 weeks. I once met a woman with 3 children, one with Spinal Bifida, sobbing, because the spermicide/condom didn't work and she found herself pregnant. She felt she had to terminate this pregnancy.... simply for her and her husband to afford to take care of the family they have.

Whose quality of life is being threatened, changed, or in any way affected what an American woman does with her personal and family issues?
Is Liberty Only about Federal Lands, Guns, Ignoring EPA rules and Religious Expression? 
What business of yours interfering with a Woman's own personal decision, between her, her family, her doctor and her relationship with  God.

For a country that worships is War, Guns and Capital Punishment, it has NO CREDIBILITY weighing on the 'Value' of Life.
The Nazarene clearly stated his rejection of violence in Any form. Too many conveniently play Spiritual Hopscotch between the Testaments when it suits their arguments.
 

It is merely SELECTIVE MORALITY.

right. every parent likely accidently says something "shameful" or doesn't control themselves once in a while and hits......

I think all of the time is helicopter parenting. Much  of knowing how to entertain one's self is learned as a kid......

I also want to say that parenting is hard (I think ) so want to give people space to sometimes get lost in a freecell game on their phone or or or

Agreed. Likely a large part of the reason that I didn't become a parent.

In the Biz, we talk about "good enough parenting" which honestly MOST parents are able to provide, I think.

a good enough parent is there most of the time that their child (in a developmentally appropriate manner) needs them, and puts their child first much of the time. A good enough parent does not use shame to manage their child's behavior 99% of the time. A good enough parent doesn't use their physical ways to manage their child's behavior 99% of the time. A good enough parent is present with their child MOST of the time. A good enough parent talks to their child about family/school/community values and works to get their child to abide by these values much of the time.

I think.

 (obviously I'm not a parent, so please chime in moms'ndads)

a question that should be posed to parents: what am i responsible for?

having/raising children is a huge responsibility

what would be the goal/incentive of having a child?

people thinking about having children should understand what is involved and what conditions need to be in place for a child to flourish

i think if we look at the successful cases we'll see some clues

has anyone looked the data or provided that data to your agency?

just curious

I think that is not entirely true. Go to YouTube and you will find a video of Sean Hannity, of all people, being pretty nasty to a Catholic priest on the show for being against birth control. 

Did you ever think you and Hannity would agree about birth control? {#Stupid}

Since we've apparently come to the tit for tat portion of our exchange I'll just leave it there. One of us is twisting what the other is saying into the usual regression. I'll only say that one need only look at the state of the world today to make their own judgements as to knowledge juxtaposed with doubt. Thanks for the clarification.

The responsibility to choose wisely and rationally includes seeing through the illusions that so many hold on to as a (subjective) truth. Only then is it a personal choice. Others will happily, and with pride, wear their ancient chains.

Evolution marches on in any case, providing some (i.e. in the US) with as many miscarriages as there are abortions. However, added together they're still a much smaller minority than those that get to procreate successfully...
