Tonight, Natalie Maines, the singer who rose to fame as the lead vocalist for the Dixie Chicks, announced via Twitter that she will be attending a rally in Austin, Texas, tomorrow to “support Wendy Davis and women’s rights.”

A pro-life reader responded: “I am all for women’s rights, but I am also for the rights of unborn children to have life.”

Maines said that is impossible:  to be pro-life is to be against women’s rights.

In Maines’ eyes, abortion is not a conflict between the rights of the mother and the rights of the unborn child. Rather, it is simply about giving women control over their own bodies.

If giving women the right to “control their own bodies” is awesome at 5-6 months’ pregnancy, why not 7 months? Or 8? Or 9?

          • annoyinglittletwerp

            At 5 months-unless the abortion is to save the woman’s life-and ONLY to save the woman’s life-it’s infanticide! Babies have survived @ 22 weeks. Btw: When I got pregnant, I could’ve been the poster child for abortion. I was THAT screwed-up. He’s 19 now-and he’s pro-life.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            I’ve actually known people who had the opposite change of heart after having a child. Once they’d experienced themselves (or up close, via their wife) what pregnancy and birth entailed, they knew that it was no trivial matter, and not something that they could in any conscience force on a person.

            Unless they were forced to take off their clothes and have sex ie rape. They have choice. They have a choice not to have sex, have a choice to use protection or birth control that they can buy or they can live with their choices and take responsibility. f we pay for your food, clothing, housing, or healthcare I think we have the right to put you on birth control so you don’t reproduce. You aren’t making enough good choices to take care of yourself or a child.

          • Angie

            Typical low info lib buzzwords without knowing what you’re talking about. Your first 2 reasons (health problems; problems that develop after 5 months) are NOT — and never have been — based on stage of the pregnancy so they are irrelevant to your position. Lack of “access” is just plain old bullsh*t that only a complete moron would buy as the Planned Parenthood clinic on every block of poor neighborhoods prove. But it’s also bullsh*t because if having an abortion is a priority to someone, she would get the money together before she was 5 months; if it wasn’t such a priority then tough sh*t — she should get busy getting the adoption paperwork together.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            “Planned Parenthood clinic on every block of poor neighborhoods”
            Right wing stereotypes are not the same as facts, do not confuse the two.

          • Angie

            The fact that you’re ignorant as to locations of most abortion clinics doesn’t make it a stereotype.
            How about the rest though — notice you aren’t touching on how a woman who *needs* an abortion can get the $300 together to get one if it is so important that she has one before she’s 5 months along — really, we’re talking about $15 a week is all she needs — or the fact that HEALTH reasons is not — and never has been — based on the stage of the pregnancy. You’re just going to ignore all the obvious holes in your argument, right and pretend I’m stereotyping as to the location of abortion clinics. Mapquest them in your town, bub — you’ll see I’m right.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            “a woman who *needs* an abortion can get the $300 together”

            See my comments above about the many extra costs involved.

            I’m also curious why you think needing something instantly imbues you with the means to afford it. I know conservatives love their myths about Cadillac driving welfare queens, but poverty actually exists.

          • Angie

            Your comment above is another pack of lies.
            And like a typical liberal jackass you don’t understand “need” from PRIORITY. If something is really, really LIFE ALTERING important (as you claim an abortion is), you find a way to get the money together. If it isn’t, then it isn’t the PRIORITY you claim it is.
            And YOU are the one who keeps bringing up stereotypes — I never mentioned “welfare queens” — YOU did because you are PROJECTING your own deep-seeded beliefs on me. You’re the racist here who wants to PAY for poor/minority women to abort their babies. Don’t get it twisted, buddy.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            I’m pretty sure they don’t turn away anyone without the cash, unless the person agrees to a specific plan to return with it. If someone shows up and simply explains what they can afford, I believe the policy is to work with them and not turn them away.

            But whatever the reason, the laws could stipulate that abortion candidates may not be turned away in order to ensure the poor “victim” is not “forced” to carry the baby longer with affordability as a lame excuse.

            They typically go later because it burns their conscience daily, but not sufficiently for them to get their life together and face up to their adult responsibilities.

            That is a stereotype based on reality.

            Seriously, you thought my attitude was hidden before that line? Let me make it clearer: You’re a moron who doesn’t know what he’s talking about when it comes to this issue, repeating left-wing lies.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            The access/money thing is a real barrier. As much as I know you like to pretend that poor people are living in the lap of luxury, not everyone can afford to take a day off, travel to the nearest clinic (so sometimes interstate), pay for the abortion itself, hang around for the waiting period, if there is one (so add in the cost of another day off AND an overnight stay).

            Were abortions publicly funded, and easier access available, elective late term abortions would all but disappear – if that’s your real goal. If what you really want is to punish poor girls for putting out, then keep on the way you’re doing.

          • Angie

            LIES LIES and (yes) MORE LIES.

            Planned Parenthood is open 6 days a week, and most days until 7 p.m. NO ONE who is so poor that she can’t afford $300 for an abortion is working 60 hours a week.

            And abortions in the FIRST 12 weeks DO NOT REQUIRE an overnight stay — just more reason to have it early by your “cost” rationale.

            You’re the one who is doing all you can to punish poor girls because your lies are leading them to put their lives at risk with dangerous late term abortions (not the mention those female unborn babies being aborted — again: there’s a reason most abortion clinics are located in poor neighborhoods — look up Margret Sanger, dumbass).

          • Bathing Suit Area

            So you’re really going to stick with the hypothesis that when women find out that they are unexpectedly pregnant and don’t want to be think to themselves: “gee, I could go get an abortion today, but nah, I think I’ll hang onto it for a few months more so I can have a much more expensive and difficult procedure, that’s the ticket!”

            Really? That’s the thought process you imagine them having?

          • Angie

            No, that is obviously YOUR thought process — hence your pretense that elective abortion is ever needed after 20 weeks based on MONEY ISSUES.

            Know why abortion on demand is only allowed up to 12 weeks in places like Sweden & France? Because the people there *at least* don’t infantalize women to such an extent that they can actually pretend that a woman who finds herself “unexpectedly” pregnant* can’t manage to get herself to an abortion clinic within the first couple of weeks of missing her menses.

            *btw: if you’re having sex, it can’t be “unexpectedly” – -maybe
            “unwanted” but not “unexpected” — there’s always a chance even with birth control, but you’re obviously too stupid to even understand the difference.

And in the vary rare instances where going full term Will kill the mother; this Bill even let you libtards Choose to abort your baby after 20 weeks. But ya know what?

          • Mary Lee

            Yes….and what I don’t understand is the simple fact that there IS no such thing as the right to kill, and therefore, pro-lifers are not taking away anybody’s rights at all. Nor are we “bestowing” non-existence rights upon an individual. We are recognizing a natural right. All human beings have the right to live; a baby in utero is a human being, therefore he or she has the right to live. The ones playing God here are those who believe these babies are not human beings, and can be brutally killed at the word of his or her own mother.

            The reasoning you morons keep bringing up most, i.e. rape or health problems make up maybe 3% of abortions.

          • V the K

            Notice how it’s the liberal arguing that women are dumb and irresponsible, and therefore abortion needs to be legal up to the moment of exiting the birth canal.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            “arguing that women are dumb and irresponsible”
            It’s not my fault that you read the meaning you want to into anything I say.

          • alanstorm

            You are the one arguing that women are irresponsible. The bill that was just defeated by a screaming mob (the democrat method of choice) included exceptions for extenuating circumstances, so your comments about those are immaterial.

            So, what are your arguments then? That women are too stupid to make a decision before 55% of the term, and are too stupid to use birth control.

            “Why do anti-choicers never remember that some women do in fact have babies on purpose, of their own free will?”

            I’m a woman and that’s how I’m taking it. I know how not to get pregnant. So does my 17 year old niece who lives in the projects. She tells me her girlfriends GET pregnant to continue the welfare cycle because they are “owed”. Hopefully she doesn’t follow that route. I’ve done what I can to help her. We’ll see.

          • ShellyB

            Besides, it’s not for NO post 20 week abortions. The mother’s life is one of the stipulations. Did you not read the bill before you started passing judgement on it? SHOCKED FACE.

            funds huh

          • $29561723

            give me these commonly-occurring medical problems and health problems that only develop 5 months after conception. Problems that aren’t discovered at day 1…I know you libs ride this unicorn like a Sioux Warrior charging on the Plains, but i want to know these crazy health problems that only pop up at 5-6 months.

            Seems to me you libs just have no idea about pre-natal screening for genetic abnormalities. If that’s truly the case, you abortion factories wouldn’t be getting knocked up in the first place. But oh yeah, the “poor” folks can’t access that stuff. So they hang ignore it for 5 months and then think, “WHATIF MY BABY HAS DOWNS!?” Rushes to clinic and get’s a saline hotshot.

            You’re so full of sh|t you squeak going into a turn.

            BTW, I used to be pro-choice until I read the Gosnell transcripts. You can go take a flying f()ck at a rolling razor-wire donut. You’re losing sympathetic votes amigo.

          • Marcy Cook

            Lack of funds is never an excuse for waiting because planned parenthood will do an abortion for free. Access is all over the damn place. planned parenthood and free clinics are everywhere.

        Again with the pretense that any other civilized country — including Sweden which is widely known as *the* most socially liberal country in the world — allows abortion on demand after 12 weeks *except* for the US which allows DOUBLE that time because you freaks are too stupid to know that life of the mother and the other rare medical exceptions that allow abortion after 5 months aren’t — and *never*have been — based on the stage of the pregnancy.

        • ShellyB

        No one said ‘Just for the hell of it?’ There are cases where they break up with the guy and now the baby is an inconvenience or they find out it’s no the sex they want it to be, or a few other reasons that make no sense. The Texas bill HAS allowances for health of mother or baby so what other reason is there to OBJECT?

      • Nerinab

        Here’s another myth busted for you: the exceptions of rape, incest and “life of the mother” make up between 1 and 2% of all abortions. The vast majority are done for the convenience of the mother. You can check it out at Guttmacher (the propaganda arm of Planned Parenthood). Another fact to consider, over 50% of women seeking abortions claim to have been contracepting at the time of their unplanned pregnancy. So much for that panacea.

    • stellatruman

      I get the feeling this has very little to do with rape …it has more to do with their twisted views of what they call ” reproductive rights “

    • trixiewoobeans

      And rape? PUH-LEEZE. The amount of abortions done for rape is infinitesimal. STOP using that to justify the murder of millions.

      • Aitch748

        If you’re talking about “rape-rape,” as Whoopie Goldberg put it, then yeah, not many abortions are done for that reason.

        Of course you have to remember that, these days, on college campuses for example, leftists are stretching the word “rape” to cover things like the woman having sex while drunk, or the woman willingly having sex with a guy while sober and then regretting it later. Given wordplay like that, you can imagine that “abortion in cases of rape” happens a lot.

        • HoneyTree EvilEye

          Excellent point

          • Grandma HeadInjury

            The percentage of women having abortion on account of rape is 0.0039%. The percentage of women having abortions is roughly 49%. That means that 99.99204082% of all abortions are not rape related.

      If there’s nothing wrong with abortion (which they believe), then why do they try to distance themselves from the word? If someone is pro-gun, or pro-cosmetic surgery, or pro-anything, they don’t use “choice” as a euphemism. And that’s all it is: a euphemism, along with “reproductive rights.”

      They need to start calling themselves what they are: Pro-abortion. There is NO difference between pro “choice” (to have an abortion) and pro-abortion. It’s just smoke and mirrors. And lies.

      • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

        Especially since it’s one of those cool “progressive” things to support.

      • Bathing Suit Area

        Pro-choice (and reproductive rights) both also mean support for contraception and opposition to women being coerced into having an abortion. It’s not just all abortions all the time.

    She esentially sunk the Dixie Chicks. I live in Milwaukee currently where we have on of the largest music festivals going on (Summerfest). The other 2 girls and their new group played the opening night as a headliner on one of the free mainstages and reports were there was about 10 people there. None of these women (and I use the term loosely) are pro-choice, because anyone that opposes them (men or women) are shouted down. They lack the moral decency to value human life. I am making the argument as neither pro-life/pro-choice. I am simply arguing that if your a women and your raped, OK go ahead and get an abortion if that is what you want to do but do it before 20 weeks. As abortions are on the whole, take personal responsibility and try and prevent an unwanted pregnancy before abortion is needed, either by birth control, condoms, etc. I for one will always be for the right for people to choose how people want to live their own life but I would like to see abortion as a form of birth control go down.

  • TocksNedlog

    I wish Libs would just be honest and admit what they want the way Camile Paglia, Judith Arcana, Naomi Wolf, and others have (http://www.catholicvote.org/gay-marriage-activist-its-a-no-brainer-that-the-institution-of-marriage-should-not-exist/). Just admit you want the right to kill your baby the minute you realize it might inconvenience you. Abortion should really be a non issue. No matter how much I disagree with killing your baby(i.e. murder) I don’t want it to be illegal simply because it goes against my belief the government needs to stop. This is a non issue, the issue is people not wanting to be held accountable for their actions, both men and women because it takes both being irresponsible to “accidentally” get pregnant. You don’t take preventative measures, including the day after pill. Come on. You wait a few weeks or months when you are already in the s##t to “solve the problem” or what most would call the blessing. Why not just let parents kill their children whenever they deem it inconvenient? The only difference between a fetus and your new born, toddler, 26 year old kid is the location. It’s not your body, it’s the babies body your killing. It’s not your choice, it’s a couples choice. I love that they scream it should be the choice of the woman and her doctors…THE DOCTOR GETS A SAY BEFORE THE FATHER? ARE YOU SERIOUS? There are plenty of parents with toddlers that really regret it sometimes so why not say they can take some scissors and snip the spine Gosnell style? Or shoot that 31 year old still living at home with no future? Libs suck. If you were at least honest I could respect that…I wouldn’t respect anything else because you’re immoral scum, but at least you’d be honest about being immoral scum. Apparently you all missed sex ed and still think the storks bring your baby like in Dumbo.

    • Bathing Suit Area

      “The only difference… is the location.”

      Inside your body is a bit more significant than “just a location” to most people. I can store my knives in lots of “locations” and it doesn’t make any difference, inside someone’s body is different. I am not just a location.

      • ObamaFail

        But if you’re so stupid you can’t manage to not get pregnant, then you have proven that you aren’t responsible enough to make an important choice.

        Interesting, you’re not just a location(I didn’t say a child was a location, but if you understood a point you wouldn’t be a Liberal) but a baby is. So you matter but a baby doesn’t. It’s funny how you see things clearly when it’s about you but when it’s about a baby they don’t matter.

    “Natalie, you certainly do not support a baby’s right to life”

    The denial of another human life, is not pro-choice, it’s anti-life.

    How a society’s humanity, it’s humaneness, it’s compassion is judged is based on and upon how well it treats, and or mistreats it’s helpless, handi-capped, and less fortunate citizens. To terminate them, either before being born, or after birth, or during their lifetime because they are just not wanted, are too much of a financial burden, and or is just liberal Statist policy, is truly how a culture, society, a nation eventually collapses onto itself, inducing it’s own downfall. Humanity cannot survive when it’s actively involved in it’s own demise.

  • Bob

    Have to excuse me for sounding like I’m on Jeopardy, but who is Natalie Maines?

    • Bathing Suit Area

      Google is your friend. (Or Bing, if google isn’t patriotic enough)

    • Kenneth James Abbott

      Natalie Maines was one of the Dixie Chicks. Their music was part of the Garthification trend, pushing towards being plain old pop with cowboy hats, and one of the three (I believe it was Maines herself) stood at a concert in England and told the world that she’s ashamed that she’s from Texas because that’s the state that Bush is from.

      Country music fans are solidly conservative and overwhelming patriotic, and you just don’t spit all over your fanbase like that if you want to sell albums. Maines had already brought herself some trouble by telling the world she didn’t like the “Angry American” song because “We’ll put a boot in your ass, it’s the American way!” was so horrible and awful and violent–short after 9-11–so this was really starting to establish a pattern. Their group took a nosedive–at one point a radio station offered free Dixie Chicks tickets to the 9th caller, and didn’t even get a first.

      Predictably, the Dixie Chicks took advantage of the fawning media attention they received for their “bravery”–as if travelling overseas to slander America is a heroic act–and whined about how they were being oppressed. Nobody cared, and country music fans don’t buy their albums anymore.

      The only way for them to make more money–and to keep themselves relevant–is to keep saying execrable things that piss off ordinary Americans, so that liberals will support them, which is why every now and then Ms. Maines pulls a stunt like this, as a means of hitting the snooze alarm on her fifteen minutes of fame.

    • Bathing Suit Area

      Obamacare doesn’t ban any medical procedures. It’s a set of insurance regulations, not the bogeyman.

      • James Atkins

        Riiiiiight… A government that mandates your healthcare and intrudes on your medical decisions is ok….do you really talk to your friends and validate these arguments together?

        • Bathing Suit Area

          What medical decisions does Obamacare intrude on? It intrudes on the ways that you pay for health care and insurance, but not the medical choices you make themselves.

          • James Atkins

            It doesn’t simply intrude on the way you PAY for it, it MANDATES you have it. So, example for you. I have a history of a certain type of cancer in my family. My insurance will now only cover screenings as the government says is adequate. Not me, not my doctor, but the government. So, while not banning, it is intruding on my choice to have this procedure more frequently. But, we are getting on a tangent here. Point is, government should not be involved with a woman’s “health” choices OR anyone else’s health choices.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            Prior to Obamacare your insurance would only cover screenings as they considered profitable. Not what you thought, not what your doctor thought, what they thought was best for the bottom line. Was that really a lot better?

          • James Atkins

            Yes actually, I don’t mind companies making money. At least I had peace of mind that I was/am cancer free. It’s called capitalism, and it works.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            I’m not objecting to them making money, my point is that until now you had an insurance company dictating how much care you got, and apparently seemed fine with that.

          • James Atkins

            I didn’t, because I had OPTIONS, lots and lots of OPTIONS. Sorry, but I prefer a private organization beholden to customers and share holder dictating my coverage rather than the government and I don’t care who is in power

          • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

        The baby didn’t ask you to spread your legs without making sure that all pregnancy prevention methods had been used. The baby didn’t ask for you to have sex and get pregnant. But you are unjustly condemning a child to death because you are such a worthless piece of trash that you couldn’t be trusted to not get yourself pregnant. Only an idiot gets pregnant when they are having sex. All of the girls I’ve slept with in my life were smart enough to use birth control. And I was smart enough to use condoms. They are cheap, and easily accessible. If you aren’t intelligent enough to not get yourself pregnant, keep your legs closed. Murdering your child shouldn’t be an answer.

        If you don’t want children, get your tubes tied. Because if you don’t do that, it means you want to get pregnant. And it means you want to get pregnant just so you can get an abortion.

        ….And? If you park your car in my garage, does it suddenly become part of my garage, and my property? Notice: That is a different person. Different DNA, often different blood type, different gender, an individual with his or her identity all in place–the ability to draw, cook, their dark eyes and wavy hair–all of that is in place. They dream, kick, hiccup. They recognize their mother’s voice. But somehow they have no bodily autonomy? They are property, they are “things” that can be ripped apart because their mere existence is inconvenient for their own mother? That’s a sad, sad belief.

  • notenoughtime

    You cannot be pro choice and then explain it away as not being pro murder. There are gray areas in everything but do not believe that those who caused a rukus in Texas were there for any other reason than they do not have respect for human life. The t-shirt hangers proved the point. Maines is a mother and at 20 weeks she knows that life can be felt in a woman’s body. At that point, is it really anything but eliminating an innocent life. My advice to these light weight celebs is to refrain from twittering about issues that polarize and stick to recipes and where you are going to lunch.

  • Todd Hill

    If Natalie Maines believes that Pro-life supporters are against women’s rights, then she should consider this.

    My aunt (and several others that I’ve talked to over the years) have marked themselves as progressives and have no problem with abortion. Additionally, those people I mention also hold to a firm belief that it’s easier to raise boys as children than girls.

    Given that, and advances in technology today which allow us to identify gender type quite early in a pregnancy, sex-selective abortions can now allow those women to eliminate “problematic” female children from the equation so that they can have an easier parenting experience with only male children.

    If this practice were adopted on a grand scale in the US, would Ms. Maines still advocate abortion as a ‘woman’s right’ if it led to a 40-50% drop in births of females in the US over the coming years?

    As I understand it, sex-selective abortions in other nations are having this kind of effect now.

        Um no, I think they know what causes them, what has that got to do with them losing their rights to there person when they become pregnant?

        • Grandma HeadInjury

          If they did know, they wouldn’t need abortions, now would they? Rights to their* person, fine. But to the person they created, no, they do not have the right to murder them.

          • salvagesalvage

            They do know and yet they still on occasion need abortions so obviously you have something wrong there.

            You’re also wrong about the reality that a fetus is not a person, people do not live inside their mothers.

          • Mary Lee

            They’re not persons….because? (Insert functionalist argument here, appearance, etc.)…We do not BECOME persons. We ARE persons. Life is a continuum. It begins at one point, and ends at another. There is not magical day when the baby is NOT a person and then suddenly IS. Wantedness does not make the baby a person. Viability doesn’t make the baby a person. What he or she looks like does not make the baby a person. It is not what we look like, or what we do, or how old we are. It is what we ARE. We are persons, from the beginning, to the end. That is science and logic. It has nothing to do with religion–it is the natural conclusion after examination of scientific fact and application of logic. To deny the personhood (and humanity) of our children in utero is intellectually and scientifically dishonest.

          • salvagesalvage

            Fetus are not people because people do not live in wombs.

            You know how a sperm and an egg isn’t a zygote and a zygote isn’t an embryo and an embryo isn’t a fetus a fetus is not a person.

          • Mary Lee

            Yes, people do live in wombs. When they are fetuses. A fetus is a stage of life. It’s not a “THING”….it’s a stage. Like, toddler, adolescent, elderly.

            A sperm and an egg is not a zygote, no. But when the egg is fertilized, there is a new person. Everything is there, the DNA, the gender, the blood type. If it isn’t a person, then please, tell me what it is! Tell me! If you can prove beyond a doubt that it is not a person (not because of functionalism, or because of what he or she looks like, or because of what he or she can or can’t do), then I will march for abortion rights immediately. But logic and science tell us that they ARE persons. To deny that they are is a ruse to justify killing them. Tell me why a fetus is not a person? Tell me why.

            You can’t. These are not potential lives–they ARE lives, with potential. Just as I have the potential to learn more languages, and how I just learned how to make pate a choux even though I am thirty five. Please tell me, if it is not a person, then it must be something–but what is it? It’s a human being. A human being is a person. The only criteria for being recognized as a person is to be a human being. Our unborn sons and daughters meet that criteria. They have their own bodies, and therefore, their own bodily autonomy, and therefore, they have the right to not be killed: the right to exist.

          • salvagesalvage

            > A fetus is a stage of life. It’s not a “THING”….it’s a stage.

            SUre.

            Like, toddler, adolescent, elderly.

            Nope, not like that at all, those are people, they don’t live in wombs.

            > Please tell me, if it is not a person, then it must be something–but what is it?

            A fetus.

            > The only criteria for being recognized as a person is to be a human being.

            Correct, a fetus is not a human being, human beings don’t live in wombs, human fetuses do.

          • Mary Lee

            Everything you’ve said is incorrect. I mean, it’s DOCUMENTED that you are wrong. I don’t know why you keep trying.

            People are always people. We don’t BECOME people. We ARE people. Fetus is merely a stage in the continuum of life.

            A human fetus IS a person. What is it, an elephant? You haven’t answered my question. If it isn’t a person….then WHAT IS IT. If you believe it’s a potential life or potential person, then it has to be an actual something, so what is that actual something? What is the magical name for what a PERSON is if her or she ISN’T a person? When is the magical day these boy and girl “things” become persons? Because even pro-aborts like you admit that the arbitrary magically-becomes-a-person-day is **before** birth, and many even cite viability. So, you really have no leg to stand on. And your biological ignorance and lack of education is quite astounding. I feel embarrassed for you, truly.

          • salvagesalvage

            > Fetus is merely a stage in the continuum of life.

            Sure

            > A human fetus IS a person.

            Nope.

            > What is it, an elephant?

            It is a fetus. Why do you not understand that a fetus is a fetus.

            > You haven’t answered my question. If it isn’t a person….then WHAT IS IT

            I have answered it several times, you have trouble understanding stuff.

          • Todd Hill

            Okay, so a fetus is a fetus. Let’s consult Webster’s dictionary.

            Definition of FETUS

            “an unborn or unhatched vertebrate especially after attaining the basic structural plan of its kind; specifically : a developing human from usually two months after conception to birth.”

            Since the definition of a fetus includes the word human in it, we know that it cannot be an elephant (or any other object for that matter).

            So, based on Webster’s definition, when you’re aborting a fetus, you’re aborting a human.

            Just curious, do humans have rights in the United States?

          • salvagesalvage

            No, you’re aborting a human fetus, not a human being.

            Human beings have rights, human fetuses do not.

          • Todd Hill

            A human is a human.

            If not, then you’re setting a dangerous precedent by qualifying what ‘types’ of humans are able to possess rights. For example, you can parse that further and say something along the line of “young humans have rights but human elders do not” or “human males have rights but human females do not (or vice-versa)” or “human liberals have rights but human conservatives do not”

            In a way I see why you’re parsing things this way, since the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment uses the specific descriptive of “person” in its verbiage. It’s a legal way to skirt the intention of the law, and is intellectually dishonest given that a human fetus can become nothing other than a human being.

            Not to forget that dodging the ‘person’ descriptor is also a display of wholesale cowardice since it underscores the fact that the pro-abortion crowd is incapable of admitting the truth of the matter behind what happens during an abortion.

          • salvagesalvage

            > A human is a human.

            Correct.

            > If not, then you’re setting a dangerous precedent by qualifying what ‘types’ of humans are able to possess rights.

            There is only one type of human; a human.

            > For example, you can parse that further and say something along the line of “young humans have rights but human elders do not”

            No, those are both humans.

            > or “human males have rights but human females do not (or vice-versa)” or “human liberals have rights but human conservatives do not”

            No, those are still humans.

            > a human fetus can become nothing other than a human being.

            Correct, just as a sperm and an egg can become nothing other than a zygote and a zygote can become nothing more than an embryo.

            But they are not humans, they are not people.

            > admitting the truth of the matter behind what happens during an abortion.

            In an abortion a human fetus is terminated.

            That’s not what happens?

          • Todd Hill

            You are correct, in an abortion a human is terminated.

          • salvagesalvage

            A human fetus, not a person so the only one who has any say is the actual person involved and that would be the woman.

            Her body, her choice the end.

            Um, a fetus being inside a womb isn’t a matter of opinion, that’s a pretty established fact.

          • Mary Lee

            You keep saying “fetus” to dehumanize the baby human. That’s what all pro-aborts do. Because, if it isn’t human, then it’s okay to kill, is that it?

            > Because, if it isn’t human, then it’s okay to kill, is that it?

            Yes, that is it.

          • Grandma HeadInjury

            Oh, so you want to play the nomenclature game. If you say “fetus,” it’s magically not human, so you can kill it. Got you. I am going to say “liberal democrats” aren’t human, so I don’t have to feel bad about ending their existence which inconveniences me so.

            This “making up my own reality” bullshit you guys like so much is kind of fun! I see why you do it so often.

          • Mary Lee

            I find it interesting because even notable abortion advocates have admitted that they ARE persons. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I was….pregnant with my daughter. She was always her, with her body, and her DNA, and her head, and her feet, and her life. She was not part of me. She was not my property. And she was most definitely a person. At 18 weeks, I saw her on the ultrasound, sucking her thumb and kicking her foot. They way little babies do. Because she was, you guessed it…..a PERSON.

          • salvagesalvage

            > If you say “fetus,” it’s magically not human, so you can kill it.

            No, not magic, a fetus is a fetus, that’s pretty medical science.

            > I am going to say “liberal democrats” aren’t human

            And you would be wrong and more than a little silly to say so.

          • Mary Lee

            No, it’s not “MEDICAL SCIENCE.” What *I* am saying has been scientifically documented. In biology books all across the world!

            No. No they don’t. They do not say “a fetus is a fetus.” They say a fetus is stage of life for a human being. It is a STAGE, not a THING. Nobody is saying a fetus isn’t a fetus….But you are saying a fetus isn’t a human being, which is a DOCUMENTED SCIENTIFIC FALLACY. Herp-derp. I am flabbergasted by your ignorance.

            So you don’t understand “circular reasoning” either.

            And no, I’m pretty sure the definition of a fetus has remained the same.

            Calling it a fetus doesn’t remove it’s humanity. I know you kids wish it would, but it doesn’t. Keep the truth fluid if it helps you sleep at night.

            Yes, it’s not true that a fetus is a fetus and a person is a person, it’s all a lie I tell myself so I don’t feel bad about other people having abortions.

        • Mary Lee

          Nobody is losing any rights. By recognizing the right to live for our own unborn children, we are not BESTOWING a non-existent right upon them. They are persons; persons have the right to not be killed. (Logic tells us they ARE persons, and I could go into a big refutation about how you say they AREN’T and maybe someday I will but I want to stay on point). Women aren’t LOSING rights….there is no such thing as the right to kill your child. It does not exist.

          • salvagesalvage

            Nope. A fetus is not a person. People don’t live inside their mother’s wombs.

            The only say anyone has over an abortion is their own, you don’t get to decide it for others.

          • Mary Lee

            A fetus is a person. A fetus is LOGICALLY a person. Even pro-abortion people like Peter Singer and Naomi Wolf and Camille Paglia have admitted this. Why can’t you?

            It’s not a personal decision, the right to kill. The right to have your tonsils removed, sure. Removing your tonsils doesn’t kill another person. The right to have rhinoplasty, sure, go ahead. But the right to kill your baby? It doesn’t exist. And it’s not about a preference….it’s not that we “don’t like” abortion. It is that abortion is the only so-called “medical procedure” in which the sole purpose is TO KILL ANOTHER HUMAN BEING. That is the end result. That is the goal. That is the “desired result.” A dead baby. The baby is then either pureed, or reassembled in a tray like a ghastly puzzle. Even earlier abortions destroy little babies with fingernails, arms, faces. These are people. We are not allowed to kill people. I’m not quite sure why you don’t understand biology. Everything you’ve stated as “fact” is actually completely wrong. I mean, it is scientifically wrong. It has been proven wrong. So, you are wrong.

          • salvagesalvage

            > A fetus is a person. A fetus is LOGICALLY a person.

            Nope, a person is a person and a fetus is a fetus. That’s why we have different terms, that’s the logic.

            > I mean, it is scientifically wrong. It has been proven wrong.

            Really? Can you show me this science that says a fetus is not a fetus?

          • Mary Lee

            A fetus IS a fetus. But a fetus is also person. This is not an “either/or” situation. We can be more than one thing at one time. But we are always persons while being all of those things. We are always human beings. What you’re saying is “You’re telling me a toddler isn’t a toddler?” …No, I am saying a FETUS is SCIENTIFICALLY DOCUMENTED to be a STAGE in the life of a HUMAN BEING. So a fetus is a fetus, AND a baby. Just like when I was five, I was a kindergartner AND a girl AND a human being. What is wrong with you? I think you have a learning disability, because nobody could be this obtuse on purpose.

          • salvagesalvage

            I’m sorry if I offended you, I did not mean it the literal sense.

            A fetus is not a human being, a human being is a human being.

            There is no such camp as “pro-abortion”, no one goes “yay! I’m having an abortion!”. The camp you are probably referring to is the one that understands other people’s medical choices are none of their business.

            I like the “ripping your baby to shreds” thing, it’s this sort of dramatic gushing that shows the only argument you have is an appeal to emotion rather than fact.

          • Mary Lee

            Again, with your “fetus” argument, which is almost comically inept and unsubstantiated by science. My argument IS substantiated by science (and abortion supporters as well): A fetus is a baby. Abortion supporters admit this. These are babies, with their heads, arms, legs, hearts, faces, all the stuff people have. They are ripped to bits. Our children. The fact that you keep saying “fetus” means you must dehumanize these babies in order to justify their killing, which never CAN be justified.

          • salvagesalvage

            > unsubstantiated by science.

            Really? Show me where science says a fetus is a perosn.

            > These are babies, with their heads, arms, legs, hearts, faces, all the stuff people have.

            People don’t live in wombs attached to their mother.

            This is known.

            > justify their killing, which never CAN be justified.

            Really? What if the woman’s life is in danger?

    If a baby lives in your uterus then it isn’t just your uterus anymore. Simple as that. I also wonder how Natalie’s career is doing since it committed suicide over a decade ago.

  • froggy19510

    Natalie Maines: If you’re pro-life, you’re not for women’s rights.

    Logical answer. If you’re for abortion you’re for murder.

    There have been 601,268 abortions comitted in the US this year.

    To claim to be “pro choice” is nothing more that a cop out and an act of cowardice. There is no “choice” when it comes to the taking of an innocent life who has done nothing wrong, whos only crime was being conceived. People, including what the world calls celebrities make me want to puke when they think they can talk their way into the middle ground by pulling out the rape card. A child is no less a child just because their father was a criminal, punish HIM not the baby. PP and their cohorts continually cover up for these pedophiles who are raping young girls and getting them pregnant and them “loving them” right down the the nearest baby killing center. The black population is self destructing because the abortion rate is so high compared to the percentage of their population, and yet idiots like you rant on about womens “rights”. Well I am a woman who as a young girl was lied to about abortion, forced to go through with it and left to regret it. Get off your high horse, your nothing more than a complete and utter coward.

    My wife would slap the taste out of her mouth for that piece of mindless sophistry.. But then,.. my wife is a woman who knows her femininity isn’t defined by her girl parts…. no more than a man’s is by his guy parts..

    Being able to reproduce at the least means you should exercise some responsibility… something women long understood before modern liberals told them they were mindless animals unable to control their urges, and need to murder their offspring to correct their bad decisions..

    She hated Bush for his “if you aren’t with us, you’re against us” line about terrorism.

    but she uses the exact same mindset herself when it’s about a liberal sacrament like abortion.. since you obviously can’t support legal equality and be against infanticide.. bet she found Gosnell disturbing only because he got caught..

    • Rena

  • DrSamHerman

    Like Laura Ingraham said, “Just shut up and sing!”

    • Conservagrl

      She can’t just shut up and sing because she has no audience to listen to her. She did have an audience at 1 time until she dissed them, the left stood up and cheered her and she must’ve said “the cool kids have accepted me”, but what she’s finding out now is this, the audience that she dissed were her true fans until of course she smacked them in the face, whereas her “Hollywood friends” aka the “cool kids” in her opinion? they used her for the moment and moved on to the next person touting their cause, they had no loyalty at all to her, if they did they would go out and buy her CD’s.

  • Conservagrl

    Natalie Maines?

    Translation=My album sales suck so I have to find a way to make myself relevant again so let me glomon to Wendy since she’s “famous” at the moment.

    BTW, it’s not pro-choice it’s pro-abortion, you can’t have it both ways by changing the language, and to endorse an abortion when the baby could be viable outside the womb is even more disgusting!

  • Sanity Check

    Fetus originates from Latin meaning baby or offspring. The modern definition has been revised to mean something less personable. Abortionists took the definition to help convince Mothers they weren’t killing a baby.

    • Bathing Suit Area

      English is not Latin. Most of us got over that centuries ago.

      • Sanity Check

        You missed my point completely.

        • Bathing Suit Area

          No, your point was just retarded.

      • Sanity Check

        Did I say English and Latin are equivalent? And actually, the formation of many new English words is still rooted in Latin.

        My point, which you missed, was the usage of fetus as a euphemism for baby.

  • billeeblue

  • Roadster73

    I’m beginning to think that, for people like her who support the dismemberment of fully formed babies, the terms “women’s rights” and “women’s health” are nothing but a mantra they have to chant, or use to lie to themselves, in order for whatever little of their conscience they have left to let them sleep at night.

    Short: Women’s rights? Women’s health? Whatever helps you sleep at night.

    • Mary Lee

      It’s a mantra, and a ruse, and a lie. They hide behind euphemisms. I mean, since when is killing our own babies a RIGHT? I’m a woman. I believe in the right to live, for all human beings. What is this “female supremacy” epidemic in the liberal world? It makes no sense to me at all.

  • Lawren Downing

    It always amazes me how Liberals have no problem murdering a innocent child that has no voice and no chance at life, but will stand out in front of a prison protesting the life of a serial killer who has chosen their path and murdered other innocent people. They speak of personal rights and choice while supporting something like Obamacare that strips away all personal choice and rights. They want the Government to control and manage their daily lives. They want the Government out fo their bedroom, but in the same breath want the Government to control who can and can’t be married. These people have no idea what Liberty is or personal choice. Everything they support is about forcing their change on others. I am convinced that Liberalism is a mental illness.

    Funny how people who are “pro-choice” on abortion are anti-choice on owning guns or wearing fur. If you are pro-choice on abortion, then you are pro-abortion! Being “pro-choice” on abortion is like being “pro-choice” on rape. Imagine a man saying “You may be against rape, but don’t push your morality on a man. It’s his body, and he has the right to do what he wants with it.” That’s the sort of logic pro-aborts use!

    • John Galt

      Interesting way of thinking about it. Great argument.

    • Bathing Suit Area

      It’s quite simple. Anyone can choose whether or not to allow someone else to be inside them. Hence why it’s wrong for a rapist to force themselves on a woman (or man, for that matter) and it’s also wrong to force a woman to carry a foetus if she doesn’t want to.

  • Conservativesniper

    Ms. Maines is a selfish bitch. A woman makes her choice when she consents to sexual intercourse. Don’t want to get pregnant, don’t spread your legs, pretty fucking simple.

  • iluvbooks

    If a “women’s rights” takes precendence over “human life”, that is wrong. All human life should be treated with reverence and respect, no matter the argument of how early it starts. Ever look at a 3d ultrasound?? Look it up. In the case of rape and incest, I honestly don’t have an answer. I don’t know what I would do. I only know that a majority of women are using abortion as birth control, and that is wrong. Especially late term abortions. How any human being can knowingly accept that and condone that is disgusting.

  • John Galt

    I wonder if Nattie would have been so pro-choice, had HER mother gotten raped and wanted to abort her. Too bad we can’t ask all those aborted babies what their choice might have been in the matter. Anymore, it seems to be a privilege to make it all the way out of a uterus into this world. Sometimes I wish people with whacked out views like Nattie who think it’s a right to murder babies could be substituted for just one of those precious babies who didn’t get that privilege.

  • $26227427

    Natalie Maines proved ages ago that she has no conscience, and very few morals. She wants what she wants, and the truth of what abortion does to the women who participate and the lives of those unborn babies be damned. The fact that there are a couple of million couples in the US waiting to adopt…. so what. Oh, and she can keep her uterus to herself – I’m sure it’s as black as her soul.

  • Tom Chipp

    Why does the quality of health care get forgotten for women’s rights? The main provision of the bill is to keep the Kermit Gosnells of the world from hurting young women. Aside from killing babies, when a problem arises with the woman they are pushed out the back door and if lucky they give the girl a ride to the ER and drop her off. For any other type of doctor that is malpractice. Why do feminists want to protect these carrion?

    • Worship Dancer

      because the word abortion is in it

    • Bathing Suit Area

      There are already regulations around the quality of care. What feminists are objecting to are regulations designed to close down clinics that already meet the existing standards.

      The people pushing these standards claim that abortion is murder, then pretend that they’re trying to make it safer. We are not that gullible.

      • Tom Chipp

        As I referred to Gosnell, a hero of this cause, The reason no one inspected his little house of horrors was the feminists didn’t want their masters subjected to harassment from the state.
        One product related death is enough to shut down a toy manufacturer. Just as they refuse to defend any woman that doesn’t tow their line, the feminists refuse to stop their friends from preying on them. If there is a right to abortion, and it comes under the heading of health care, it should be regulated as all other medical practices doing surgery are. No more special political rights, we are supposed to be equal.

  • Ken Foxe

    Why doesn’t the father have a right to choose life? My one chance at a child of my own in this lifetime, was taken from me by someone else’s selfish “choice” to kill. Every time I hear this pro murder crowd scream “choice”, I feel like I’m going to get sick!

    I love how she (and other pro-choicers) actually believe that MOST women get the choice. There are so many walking wounded women in this world who were forced to choose between abortion and a roof over their head by their well meaning parents and the fathers of their children. Women have abortions because their boyfriends tell them to. Women have abortions because their parents tell them to. Women have abortions because their doctors tell them to. Where’s the woman’s rights concern in that?

    Do you believe there is a God? whether or not; you should be aware you will
    be called to give an account for what things we have voted on as
    a nation in our political arena; and by saying that I realize we
    means both houses of Congress and the voters; and the other
    “miscreants” in the Supreme court. Remember you will stand before
    Him to give an account of what we did through this life.

    I cannot understand why; after watching the silent scream and the hard
    truth; anyone would possibly agree with abortion.

    Have you ever seen what a child goes through during an abortion? We are
    talking human beings here. Even “PETA” should be anti-abortion. I don’t think they
    even care what a child goes through as he or she is torn apart or burned to
    death or has his or her brains sucked out by what some call “doctors”.

    As I understand, the majority of citizens want to stop abortion.

    Not only for the sense of murdering babies, but also as a financial thing.

    How much DOES an abortion cost? That’s a good second thought; naturally the
    child should be the first.

    Now, I’m not a “pro-lifer” just anti abortion.

    I think that stopping a human heart is murder; unless the heart is stopped by God.

    We have been murdering these babies since 1973 this year makes forty
    years.

    Now multiply that by one and a half million by forty years, is that a hundred
    fifty million babies? And how much money goes to Planned Parenthood for killing
    these children; at least a thousand dollars each, maybe more.

    There’s no big noise about aborting children; if an individual kills another
    that is the shedding of blood in Scripture, that’s called killing someone; or
    murder; “If man sheds another’s blood, then by man shall his blood be shed.
    That doesn’t happen very often anymore.

    Lying, stealing and cheating seem to be all right too in today’s society.

    “When the wicked bear rule, the people mourn but when the righteous are in
    authority, the people rejoice.” I don’t hear much rejoicing in America
    today politically, or financially.

    What happened to our morals? We have told Our Maker to take a walk while
    we desecrate the world; then we ask “where is God?” when the economies
    collapse, hurricanes happen,, earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, wildfires, pestilences
    , incurable sexual and other diseases just
    “happen” to us. Where do you think He is!

    He is right here all the time; telling us to think; before it gets to be
    too late.

Murder is everywhere and if it is self defense they will believe and justify it . Pro- Choice is about a Woman having control over her body and her choices. Only she should be able to decide her fate and her future. Not the government or the religious fanantics. If she choose to end the term of her pregnancy then that is her choice and her right. If you do not agree in abortion then do not have one. There are so many children who are here in the world they need your protection. Go and take care of them and stay away from women’s bodies…..

      It’s a right to choose whether or not to continue pregnancy and give birth. “Killing” is a consequence of that, not the basis of the right.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        A distinction without a difference. I’m sure those words soothe the nerves of those who do choose to kill…as a mere consequence of their choice to do so, never forget that.

    So sad really. The pro-birth side wants to push their belief system on everyone else. Too bad they weren’t on our side of the capitol. They could’ve heard a wonderful speech by two rabbis talking about how abhorrent it is to them and their belief system that the pro-birthers allow no option for abortion. Whatever your belief system, it’s not okay to try to create restrictions to what is already law.

    • Spinmamma

      You posted: “The pro-birth side wants to push their belief system on everyone else” This argument has always struck me as remarkably lacking in self awareness. Rather like a couple arguing and one says “why are you arguing about something so petty.?” No awareness the speaker is also arguing about something petty and refuses to yield.. (Before I get jumped, that was an illustration only and I am not in any way saying anything to do with abortion is petty.) Can’t you see the pro-abortion er, pro-choice, side is also “pushing their belief system on everyone else.” ? Hello? It is a dishonest argument.

        If you are pro-life, then you are. No one is asking you to change, no one is asking you to get an abortion. Pro-choice means exactly that. Let women have the choice to choose what is best for them based on their moral, spiritual, religious and scientific beliefs. They are not telling you to go get an abortion. I don’t think it’s lacking in self-awareness at all. I think pro-choicers exhibit more empathy/

          no pro-choice does NOT mean choice. women who CHOOSE NOT to abort r called the worst names by the pro-“choice” group. what they mean is pro-choice IF YOU CHOOSE THE WAY WE SAY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE.

    Many people who support abortion differ on when it’s acceptable to perform one. I submit that the differences are merely arbitrary opinions based on personal feelings. If it’s wrong at 40 weeks, then why not 30? Why not 20 or 10 or 2 weeks?

    “I need you to please back away and get your nose out of my uterus.”

    Can I take my wallet with me, too?

    Maines, she is a douchebag so it is no small wonder her mind is constantly about her women parts. She has no compunction telling others to mind their own business while she minds theirs…..pot, kettle, and dbag. All in one. Nat, get a clue. Not everyone believes that abortion should be legal. And, not everyone believes WE should be paying for it. Further more, not everyone believes the government should call infanticide a “right.” BTW, Texas is still ashamed of you and the other two.

    Gee Natalie… too bad your Mommy didn’t believe in abortion on demand… then we wouldn’t have to listen to your ignorant crap! Please dry up and blow away soon.

    Just one more who will defend my right to kill my unborn children, but will fight to deny my right to protect those I already have.

    The procedure for an abortion or a late term abortion would
    not be used on an animal with on an outcry of animal cruelty. But that same
    procedure on a human is ok. The procedure is never discussed by or the
    mainstream media because the majority of people would severely the scope of
    abortions. But some want to keep those abortion mills fully stoked.

  • Larry New

    Damn Maines you are a lot uglier than you used to be.

  • Terry Weis

    I want nothing to with your guns. If you want to own one, that is your choice. Missing the point? You can keep your wallet too. I do not see wishy -washy in any thing but your mind. It is ok to make your own choice to own a gun with intent to kill/protect, but a women can’t make her own choice about her body? You do not want the government in your business, then why should it be in a women’s ?…..Sounds like you are a bit baffled!

    Abortion today has become a form of birth control…a horrible means of birth control. Both parties should be responsible enough so that an unwanted pregnancy does not happen in the first place.

  • Miami_Son

    Maybe if women were in control of their bodies BEFORE getting pregnant they would have no need for abortion. Just a thought.
