While you are at it go OFF yourself as well.

You care enough that Mudkitty had abortions, but then you have no problem telling her to commit suicide? Sounds like your as morally bankrupt as you make her out to be.

You claim not to be a pro-lifer, but your statements would say otherwise. However, back to our original tête à tête. Speaking of people who clearly shouldn't be reproducing Dave, namely you, the word is "beautiful", not "bueatiful", though I'm sure in your world of absolute perfection, you never make mistakes. I could care less if you like my opinion or not, all I hope to do is encourage others not to agree with the likes of yours.

The last arguement of one who has none, pick on typos. Keep up the good work.

When I look at the graphic, I see one more internet scourge, ala phishing, pharming: now we have "phealing". It should be dealt with accordingly.

Mudkitty - thank you for your honesty, please don't let a vile piece of worhtless pig shit like Dave get you down!

Why not take the opportunity to send these to all your prolife friends' email addys? That way it'll just be preaching to the closedminded and leave the rest of us alone.

For the poster who is judging another one's choices, I say: get over yourself and mind your own fucking business.

So Mudkitty didn't make a typo when she mistakenly used the month, instead of your posted name? You're a hypocrite too. Not too suprising.

Thanks, mudkitty, for your posting. I had two abortions when I was in my twenties and I have never, ever regretted them, either. I've never even spent much time thinking about them. I've never met any woman who has told me that she regretted having an abortion. And I now know that a fair number of my friends had at least one abortion at one time or another in their lives. (One close friend of mine considered herself staunchly pro-life when she got pregnant and obtained an abortion. She now considers herself a pro-choice Catholic.)

I didn't have anything but transient sadness as a result of either of my abortions, and those were related more to the circumstances of the pregnancies and my relationships with the men involved. I was unhappy that I got pregnant despite taking measures against pregnancy. Both times I got pregnant were as a result of contraceptive failure (the first was a barrier method and the second was an IUD.) In both cases, my relationship with the man involved ended at the time I had the abortion.

Ultimately, I came to see both abortions as blessings in disguise. They got me away from two very unhealthy relationships that would have been disastrous to continue.

"So Mudkitty didn't make a typo when she mistakenly used the month, instead of your posted name? You're a hypocrite too. Not too suprising."

That wasn't just a typo that was blatant stupidity, nice try.

The scary thing about these cards: I bet the people who send them think they're being compassionate.

You know the drill: "We're not being judgmental. That's for the Lord to do. We're just concerned for your eternal soul."

Ick. I have to take six showers now. Five will not do.

Isn't the wording of the sympathy card a little more explicit than we normally expect from this sort of thing? I mean, when you lose your spouse, you don't get Hallmark cards that say "I know your husband's lymphoma was difficult for everyone." They generally use soft, less specific language like "condolences on your loss."

And that's not just about making all-occasion, all-purpose messages. It's about treading lightly around somebody who is going through emotional pain.

The e-card depicted here just seems intrusive and rude. If an abortion really was a "painful chapter" in my life, the last thing I want is some internet buddy to talk to me about it like he's my OB. Thanks for overstepping your bounds, my pro-life e-friend.

"Ick. I have to take six showers now. Five will not do"

Make sure to put on your Planned Parenthood "I had an abortion" Tshirt when are done.

It wasn't a typo, per se, it was just a mistake. Like certain pregnancies.

To moralize about pregnancies and abortions that are none of one's business, and to confuse a pregnancy with motherhood, now that's stupid.

If one abortion is morally acceptable, then who's to say that two aren't?

And I repeat, since when is a womans choice of birth control any man's business?

The fact is; I don't believe that Dave is pro-choice.

Perhaps you missed it the first time Mud, I really don't give a shit what you think or believe.

Mistakes are mistakes, and I am of the opinion the declining values and morales of men are what brought us to this point.

However it disgusts me that abortion would be used as a method of birth control.

So if you don't give a shit what I/or anyone else here believes, why bother? Why bother posting a comment at all? And why should we/I care what you think or believe, if you don't give a shit what I/we think and/or believe? What a waist of your time, not to mention...

It disgusts me that you would render judgment on someone's choice of birth control when someone's choice of birth control is none of your business.

It disgusts me that you didn't learn what was none of your business back when you were in kindergarten. It disgusts me that you would jump to conclusions regarding matters that are none of your business.

Tell the truth - abortion disgusts you, Dave. Otherwise, it wouldn't matter how many abortions there were/are.
Try logic.

"It disgusts me that you didn't learn what was none of your business back when you were in kindergarten. It disgusts me that you would jump to conclusions regarding matters that are none of your business."

What is and isn't my business does not apply here when you post it for all to see on the internet. Try again.

Jump to conclusions? No I responded to what was posted.

Let me guess Mud, you are all for a woman's right to have multiple abortions but you are against the death penalty.

How far from the mark did that hit?

Mudkitty, I'd like to commend you for showing Dave a hell of a lot more consideration than he deserves.

"Try again"??
What? Are you playing some sort of board game?

Look Dave, grow yourself a womb and the rest of the girl plumbing, live with it a few years, and then come back and tell us what is right and wrong about abortion and we might listen.

Cfrost, what part of I DON'T GIVE A SHIT IF YOU LIKE MY OPINION OR NOT don't you understand.

Again, once I can understand but when it becomes just another form of birth control it disgusts me.

Oh, Dave. The dizzying shuffle between poses (libertarian! lifelover! disdainful agnostic! person who doesn't give a shit about abortion but thinks people who do it for the "wrong" reason should kill themselves!). The flames. The, I'm sorry to upset you, two to three words spelled wrong and/or inappropriate homonyms in each comment.

High school should be a time when you do more interesting things than this. You'll have time enough to be a bitter loner taking grim satisfaction in the hope of causing pain for others when you graduate.

Or leave, I guess.

What is so wrong about having an abortion?

There is not a family in America that does not have several women in it who have already had abortions. They all seem to be doing just fine.

If people like Dave would just talk to the women in his family who have had an abortion or two or three, he would see that they are ok and do not need any moralizing on his part.

IMO Dave likes to hijack comment threads. Doesn't matter what he believes or doesn't believe. He's going to make a comment that will rile up others reading and commenting on the thread. We should ignore him now... that's what I'll continue doing (I've skipped too many comments trying to avoid reading him as he does his routine. (I would dearly love it if he could be disemvoweled and we'd know right away what comments to skip.)

Holy shit on a coat hanger! Speaking of men & abortion, check out the hysterical, mawkish raving by the “Life Issues Institute” people that brought us these silly e-cards.

Julia, the last attack for someone with no ammo on a blog is to attack typos. keep up the good work.

Lastly Jules, before you post knocking someone's typos perhaps you may want to run a spell check over that post.

Just saying: Pot meet Kettle!

UncleAnon, there is not a woman in my immediate family who has ever had an abortion.

And there you have it.

Game over.
