pro life ad's in georgia

saw this on the news this morning and i think it is wrong on so many levels. i don't understand how these were even allowed, i would be outraged if they were in my town. i don't see how anyone in their right mind could think these ad's were done tastefully, there are much better ways to go about the pro-life, pro-choice debate. i thought the commercial during the super bowl was done with a lot more class and respect than these things.

for the record i am pro-choice

Re: pro life ad's in georgia

Tebow had his ad why not them? I mean, both ads convey the same message and both ads are misleading...let them have their crappy ads because ultimately people choose what's right for them not what a billboard tells them, and if they don't that's their problem.

Why is it that men, who have the most to say about abortion it seems, have so much to say about what a woman should do with her own body?

Re: pro life ad's in georgia

Among other things, those billboards trivialize the notion of "endangered species." There really are species which may soon disappear forever, and calling African-American kids an "endangered species" simply diminishes the concernt hat we should have for the truly endangered.

well since it takes a male and a female to have a child, the male should have just as much right as the female when it comes to deciding wether or not to have an abortion.

It all boils down to what one believes, is the fetus just a lump of cells, not any different than a gall bladder, liver or finger, or is it a human life at conception. Those that believe it's a human life at conception believe it's no longer just the woman's body. They believe the woman has no right to murder the unborn child any more than she would have to murder a one day old child.

And there are many, many women on the pro-life side that hold the belief of life beginning at conception.

Very complex, very emotional issue. One that I'm sure will not be resolved to one side or the other's satisfaction in our lifetimes.

How about the notion of Tebow being a "miracle baby?" If you cut through facad you realize all the ad is saying is "don't do abortion, you might hit the jackpot like me and birth a baller." Of course, what it doesn't tell you is that the chance of your baby being a baller is statistically improbable and that there's a better chance that he might become a perennial criminal.

Are we talking NCAA (yes) or NFL (highly doubtful) baller?

Any NCAA player able to make it to the NFL. How hard can you be ballin' if you can't make it to the next level? I am afraid there's no such thing as second place baller.

True. One is certainly ballin' if he's gonna get paid 7 figures (I'm just hoping it isn't with a check signed by Snyder).

Nice First . Maybe the Feds will " fix " everyone with a criminal record as to reduce future crime . And maybe free Gatorade and vitamins for athletes so we will ensure healthier and longer lasting athletes .

Yes, I am for real. Mis-using the phrase "endangered species" by putting it in a context in which it does not belong trivializes the concept. This is pretty straightforward.

Those billboards are high in scare factor, low in legitimate information.

Yes I did, Tebow is a baby who survived complications and went on to do great things...it's a miracle! How miraculous would he be if he was a nobody? How miraculous are all those babies that didn't make it through complications? The reason the whole complications and miracles thing is told is to appeal to us at an emotional level and convince us that abortion is the wrong choice not just in this instance but in all instances...hence "celebrate life, celebrate family."

My decision to support abortion is solely based on affording people the right to choose...whatever that choice may be. Ms. Tebow made the right choice, good for her. Focus on the Family, group behind the ad, doesn't want people to have a choice...they can go fuck themselves.

That's eugenics, I don't support eugenics.
