    Paula Bayley Skalka that's a very mis informed and callus way of thinking. Maybe re evaluate your life and think of other people and how they are having to face these situations. Leave out people who have consentual sex and aren't careful. Let's talk about people who are raped and molested and are too young to know about the morning after pill. Girls who are too ashamed about what happened to tell anyone and boom. They're pregnant with their attackers child. How would you approach this with your daughter? Differently I feel... This is why we're in this situation. So many girls are going to die for the decions other people are having on their body. Shame on you.

    That’s a personal choice and a stupid one

    And here we go, back into the stone ages. Wow. It's really hard to believe that women are supportive of this in 2019.

    Why dont some mind their own business and clean out their own closets before you throw stones ! When some vote for a president just because they claim they don't believe in an abortion is disgusting! It's not your choice nor your right to judge ! I want a president who is working for the people! Not for himself and working to please dictators!

    You can't kill the unborn. The heartbeat that you hear at 6-weeks will stop the moment the woman's heartbeat stops. When you can remove it and it still lives... then, and only then, do you have a baby friends. (that is around 20 weeks) People can't seem to wrap their heads around the fact that women control pro-creation. Not your hateful, unjust, and very male God.

    Republican Neanderthals don’t care about this story. Your relative died? Shouldn’t have gotten pregnant. Sickening

    The only solution I see is that women should quit giving it up to men until they decide that their sex life was more important then trying to control a woman's body. Or pro life decides that they are pro life not just pro birth,because they don't seem to care about the life the child will have.

    Ahh, yes, the 400,000 existing children already in foster care. If you support this bill, I'm sure you'll be lined up for adoption.

    People can't wrap their head around the fact that God created Man & Women...we are programed to reproduce...women were given a UTERUS in order to grow & protect the baby till it's birth...women were created to be more caring & gentle...men are the providers...the tuff strong protectors of the family...that was Gods plan...you FEMINIST dunb-dums have upset the balance of Gods work and now we are seeing the results of that with all the chaos & turmoil going on in this Country and the world...

    Isn't it past time we turn this abortion debate upside down and put the focus here on men. A woman cannot become pregnant without sperm. It's time to legislate man's sperm, the very substance that leads to unwanted pregnancies. No active sperm, no unwanted pregnancies, no abortions.

    shouldn't you allow doctor's to decide weather abortion at certain month would be necessary and in the best interest of both mother and the unborn ?

    Men have no business telling women what to do with their bodies. Maybe men should be required to be castrated or fixed to prevent abortions.

    lI guess you think it is hearbreaking for those who have had a chance to live but not heartbreaking for the innocent baby in the womb. We want to make sure that woman can choose to kill the babies they procreated? What kind of a sick society are we to sentence children to death and call it heartbreaking when someone isn't allowed to do that?

    As terrible as this example is (of the grand mother attempting an abortion and ending up dying) abortion laws have also allowed rapists and child molesters to continue molesting and raping. There are horrors on both sides of the issue here. https://www.childpredators.com/cases/

    This is what started abortion not because black women needed them so before you protest to stop don't let it be your Daughter who can't come to you and let you no she's pregnant be the 1 getting an illegal abortion and passes away
