  1. are these morons so stupid as to not know the Bible it'self endorses abortion…
    specifically for infidelity…
    Numbers 5:11-31 New International Version (NIV)
    11 Then the Lord said to Moses, 12 “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘If a man’s wife goes astray and is unfaithful to him 13 so that another man has sexual relations with her,
    and this is hidden from her husband and her impurity is undetected
    (since there is no witness against her and she has not been caught in
    the act), 14 and if feelings of jealousy
    come over her husband and he suspects his wife and she is impure—or if
    he is jealous and suspects her even though she is not impure— 15 then he is to take his wife to the priest. He must also take an offering of a tenth of an ephah[a] of barley flour on her behalf. He must not pour olive oil on it or put incense on it, because it is a grain offering for jealousy, a reminder-offering to draw attention to wrongdoing.

    16 “‘The priest shall bring her and have her stand before the Lord. 17 Then he shall take some holy water in a clay jar and put some dust from the tabernacle floor into the water. 18 After the priest has had the woman stand before the Lord, he shall loosen her hair and place in her hands the reminder-offering, the grain offering for jealousy, while he himself holds the bitter water that brings a curse. 19 Then
    the priest shall put the woman under oath and say to her, “If no other
    man has had sexual relations with you and you have not gone astray and become impure while married to your husband, may this bitter water that brings a curse not harm you. 20 But if you have gone astray while married to your husband and you have made yourself impure by having sexual relations with a man other than your husband”— 21 here the priest is to put the woman under this curse—“may the Lord cause you to become a curse[b] among your people when he makes your womb miscarry and your abdomen swell. 22 May this water that brings a curse enter your body so that your abdomen swells or your womb miscarries.”

    “‘Then the woman is to say, “Amen. So be it.”

    23 “‘The priest is to write these curses on a scroll and then wash them off into the bitter water. 24 He
    shall make the woman drink the bitter water that brings a curse, and
    this water that brings a curse and causes bitter suffering will enter
    her. 25 The priest is to take from her hands the grain offering for jealousy, wave it before the Lord and bring it to the altar. 26 The priest is then to take a handful of the grain offering as a memorial[c] offering and burn it on the altar; after that, he is to have the woman drink the water. 27 If
    she has made herself impure and been unfaithful to her husband, this
    will be the result: When she is made to drink the water that brings a
    curse and causes bitter suffering, it will enter her, her abdomen will
    swell and her womb will miscarry, and she will become a curse. 28 If,
    however, the woman has not made herself impure, but is clean, she will
    be cleared of guilt and will be able to have children.

    29 “‘This, then, is the law of jealousy when a woman goes astray and makes herself impure while married to her husband, 30 or when feelings of jealousy come over a man because he suspects his wife. The priest is to have her stand before the Lord and is to apply this entire law to her. 31 The husband will be innocent of any wrongdoing, but the woman will bear the consequences of her sin.’”

  2. Abortions happened before roe v Wade. Abortions happened during the Roman and Greek times. Roe v Wade did not increase abortions. Overturning or getting rid of Roe v Wade does not decrease abortions. Roe v Wade and it’s protections are meant to protect people that are desperate enough to throw themselves off of bridges and stair cases. Roe v Wade is meant to prevent the thousands that were dying from back alley abortions which killed the baby and mother anyways. Roe v Wade was meant to protect life. That’s the reason why it was passed. People don’t realize that if you criminalize abortions, 1 in 5 women could be arrested because of accidental miscarriage. And 1 and 4 women can have their health endangered caring a dead fetus to term when the baby is not viable.

    Restrictive Abortions laws ignore reality. Whether you believe in abortion or not, that is your individual choice. But to craft laws to penalize women in their pressured moments does not help. Many innocent women will be criminalized due to these new laws and every miscarriage will be investigated

  3. To others that are against abortions:you have the right to believe what you want. That’s the rights I have been arguing on this post. Would you like a policy to force everyone that believed like you to go to jail because of your beliefs? Just because someone does not believe like you do , you should not criminalize them. If you want to decrease abortions, banning abortions is the same as banning alcohol. It does not work! Programs work. Bans do not work. They only cause legal stress and criminalize the innocent.

    I never advocated whether I was against abortion or not. I am advocating for the right not to be criminalized. when I was a young child, if I became pregnant due to being sexually assaulted by my half brother in seventh grade, would I have a choice to not be seen as a murder if I am the victim.

    People feel so righteous about their beliefs that they forget you will never understand why a women made their decision on certain things. Everyone has the right to be against abortions. Everyone has the right to teach why abortions are bad. Just like everyone has the right to advocate for prochoice

    But I’m saying people should not have the right to criminalize and judge when you are not in that person’s shoes.

  4. Church attendance is way down and so is bible reading and so is trust in the church pastorship. If republicans want to overturn Roe v Wade then they just want to be bullies and jerks. PLEASE MAKE THIS A TALKING POINT DEMS!!!

  5. Seriously anytime something comes up it is .. but trumps base.. but in this case ? Ehmm…. nothing ?

  6. Wait,. Does this mean that politicians know what is best for every individual they (supposedly ) represent ?

  7. Toxic femininity is killing babies by the millions. Good, strong, honest men must put a stop to this evil.

  8. So the state's who generally have the highest infant mortality rate want all abortions banned? Sounds like way more babies are going to die due to negligence than abortion ever took away.

  9. God threatens spontaneous abortion as punishment in Hosea 9:1-17. "Give them, O LORD: what wilt thou give? Give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts. Yea though they bring forth yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb."

  10. Good for Louisiana, we here in Missouri are following. Tomorrow we will close the door on the only abortion clinic left in Missouri.
