You obviously don't understand "choice". I am pro-responsibility. Every choice comes with a concurrent responsibility. If a woman chooses to have sex, she also chooses the possibility of becoming pregnant. Her responsibility at that point is to the helpless person she is supporting. Actions have consequences, and our responsibility is to deal with them, not to ignore or try to avoid them.

Kermit Gosnell and Abortion's Darkest Side

Actually, it does happen occasionally, My daughter had to have an abortion at 10 weeks, as a result of acute pancreatitis, necessary gall bladder surgery, and epilepsy, which required drugs that would have killed or damaged the baby. She didn't want to do it, after 17 years still feels awful about it, but is grateful that she was able to have 2 more healthy children afterward. Her case was unusual, but odd things do happen occasionally. Never say never.

You seem confused by the whole "choice" thing. Let me explain. When a woman says "yes" to sex, she has made a choice. Deciding to kill the results of that choice is not a "choice", it's evading the consequences of the first choice. The only times when there is even a bit of justification for that would be if the woman chose "no" in the first place, but was forced (rape), or if, during the course of a pregnancy, it becomes apparent that carrying the child will severely hurt the woman. But even in those cases, the rights of the child need to be considered. Adequate physical, emotional and mental support for the mother, and care for the child if needed, should always be available locally. A child is not a "tragedy", he/she is a person.

And I've tried to price compare by the shelf tags at the grocery, and when I've actually done the math, found them to be, in most cases, wildly wrong. While it's tedious to check everything while I'm shopping, it's the only way to assure I'm getting the most for my money. But the cost is increased by the increased time I have to spend shopping. :(
May I share that? I've never seen it put so succinctly.

What Is “News”?

It is not "unfortunate" that abortion targets blacks, it was planned that way. Planned Parenthood was started by a Nazi-loving, eugenics-believing woman who admitted to any and all that her hope was to "eliminate inferior races" and protect white purity. Margaret Sanger is still revered by liberals as a true progressive thinker. She actually enlisted black ministers to convince their congregations that abortion and birth control would be in their best interest, "helping" them to control the size of their families. She was evil incarnate.
The "government help" you tout is the root cause of this tragedy. There is no charity or concern in "government help", there is only control and servitude. Women have been convinced that murdering their children is the only way to make themselves happy. Over 50 million children have died in this useless pursuit, children who could have grown to be a joy to their parents, who could have bettered society, who could have brought love to those who need it most. The blood on the hands of this generation will stand as a testament to the world of our greed, avarice and pride. Was Hitler or Stalin any worse than Gosnell? We have devalued our most precious commodity, our children, to the point of worthlessness, and no such society can long survive.

Walk a Hutterite Mile in Their Shoes

The Hutterites are not communists. They are living a United Order, a spiritual economic system characterized by voluntary mutual sacrifice and mutual benefit. No one is forced to provide for another, nor is anything forcibly taken from one person to be given to another. Everyone works to the best of his/her ability, and all share in the wealth. It is a difficult system to live in, as our very human leanings toward pride and acquisition have to be modified to be able to work effectively in this system.
No, pinky, not punished for having sex. Experiencing the natural consequences of her decisions. That's not punishment, that's life. Progressives seem to want to avoid consequences, as if having to live with the results of poor decisions is unfair. That's how real life is set up: you make poor decisions, choose unwisely, you have bad or difficult consequences. You make good choices and decisions, you have good and helpful consequences. Try it.
