And Status Quo Joe changes his tune. Talking out of both sides of his mouth - ALREADY!

Joe Biden Makes It Clear He Still Opposes Federal Funding For Abortion

After he told a voter otherwise, his campaign says he’s only “open” to repealing the Hyde Amendment if circumstances change.

I’m not really pro or con on this issue. If the mother doesn’t want the child (and the father even less so), its chances of success in the world are drastically reduced, especially given the Republican penchant for denying services to the mother and child after the fact. So I’d leave it up to the woman. Either that or outlaw vasectomies to level the playing field. The court system can’t keep up in these matters with “deadbeat Dads” by the thousands owing millions of dollar in child support. I’d make the cut-off point for abortion at the time where the child can survive out of the womb, although it will be prohibitively expensive to help these preemies survive at such an early age, much less without complications.

No heartbeat = heartless in more than one sense

It also takes 3 months for the internal organs to form, so to say there is a heartbeat at 6 weeks is wrong and misleading. And-- as many have stated, the fetus is revered, but the actual children in America are often ignored and forgotten. : (
And now that America will be moving even more into war drones making their own AI decisions—maybe the issue of needing more babies for bodies for war will be forgotten by empowering the AI war drones , AND they won’t need medical care or mental heath care either. The need for the human war fodder is diminishing—but DEATH will still prevail over there—wherever the next war is : ( Maybe the AI drones will be allowed to decide where to war and we can dump the Pentagon and the generals because the AI drones will be cheaper—and no doubt more successful and for less money too.

Hello star\dustBID, The easiest definition of a fetus is on word “PARASITE”. It is dependent upon a human to provide for it. If the human perishes prior to some specific point in the development then the fetus will perish! After that it could survive but with the batshit crazies in charge the best option for the fetus is to give up as the prospect for existence after coming out is misery squared!

This is basic framing–see Lakoff: NEVER EVER USE YOUR ADVERSARY’S PROPAGANDISTIC LANGUAGE!!!

Put a few single heart cells in a petri dish in an incubator. Very quickly, the individual cells will synch up with each other and begin to “beat” at the same time. Only time will tell if this petri dish will be a conservative or a progressive voter.
