APS needs to realize it's a business expense for them and not punish people for moving into the 21st Century

also means freedom from religion. Religion and politics are separate for a reason. If not, then tax the churches.

Congrads to all the people here. I assume you appreciate all life and are vegans. I assume you are also willing to pay taxes for the unwanted children and adopt them as well. Fabulous. I feel much better knowing that.

Sometimes accidents happen. A woman doesn't make the decision lightly. I have two children as well. That doesn't give me the right to take away another woman's freedom of choice. To keep calling a fetus a baby is scientifically incorrect. You may have a computer, but until you turn it on, it's just a bunch of wires and chips. The science is in (since 1973) what determines the point at which life is determined. I don't want to argue this here. That was already done in 1973. It was called Roe Vs. Wade. Women indeed need to ask their partners BEFORE sex where they stand on such an important issue. Many times the men don't want the child. Alas, contraception isn't foolproof either.

everyone has their own sense of morality and reality. You can't force that on another, no matter what your programming is. You have the right to chose, and so should everyone else. Emotions and opinions are not science. Thanks for not being nasty in your comment!

All the emphasis is on the zygote (fetus) not the living child after it's born. Here is Az education is cut, food stamps cut, no safety net at all for the living breathing children and family. To use old disproved science to say you can reverse an abortion is just plain hateful to women. No woman makes that decision lightly and it is HER choice. Not everyone has $250,000 to raise a child (latest cost estimate) and not everyone wants to be a mother (or should). Yes Ronald, it is an emotional issue and a private one. A woman should have every right to her body the same as a man. The govt needs to stay out of our vaginas and our personal lives.
