This is something that we need to raise awareness of and discuss more.

The upcoming referendum is vitally important in whether we'll be bringing some basic human rights back to Ireland...
Women in Ireland in crisis pregnancies have virtually no say over their bodies. They are treated as incubators. What a woman does with her body should not be up to the church, the state or to anyone else. It should be her decision. Even if she wants the child, she is at a severe health risk if something goes wrong.
Being forced to do something you don't want to do with your body is scary, even traumatic, and in the case of pregnancy this restriction of basic bodily freedom is extremely dangerous. 
It is a gross injustice that women have their own bodies policed in this country. Doctors have more incentive with the anti-abortion laws to let a woman die to save a

Ireland, We Really Need To Have This Talk...
Let me begin by asking you two simple questions:

:bulletblue: Do you believe that you have the right to what happens to your own body? :bulletblue:


:bulletblue: Do you believe in freedom of speech, without the threat of persecution? :bulletblue:

I'll let you ponder that for a few seconds...
I have the right to free speech, and in this journal I intend to exercise it. I am being incredibly careful in my wording so as not to break any laws, but I shouldn't have to worry about freedom of speech and my right to speak freely on topics. This concern in itself is a sign that something is terribly wrong in the country of Ireland.

Today, I'm going to try tackling two very sensitive issues. I understand that writing about this may result in a heated debate, serious backlash of comments, and watchers unwatching, but I don't mind that. This is a discussion that is too often avoided that we really should talk about

Catholic Hospital says Fetuses aren't People
Catholic hospital chain beats malpractice suit by saying fetuses aren’t people http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2013/01/24/catholic-hospital-chain-beats-malpractice-suit-by-saying-fetuses-arent-people/
A chain of Catholic Hospitals has beaten a malpractice lawsuit by saying that fetuses are not equivalent to human lives. According to the Colorado Independent, in the death of a 31-year-old woman carrying twin fetuses, Catholic Health Initiatives’ attorneys argued that in cases of wrongful death, the term “person” only applies to individuals born alive, and not to those who die in utero.
Lori Stodghill was seven months pregnant with twin boys on the day she died. The Independent reported that on New Year’s Day 2006 in Cañon City, Colorado, Stodghill was admitted to the Emergency Room at St. Thomas More Hospital complaining of nausea, vomiting and shortness of breath. She lost consciousness as she was being wheeled into an exam room and ER staff were

This does not bode well for those of us who believe that a woman's right to a safe and
legal abortion should be protected. If you are Pro-Choice then hopefully this will give you
even more reason to not only vote for Biden, but also vote for Amy McGrath who is running
against Mitch McConnel for head of the supreme court.

Go back to vibrators and put the safety of children before your selfish orgasms.

Are orgasms really that important to you?

It's not about orgasms. It's about a woman's right to choose and 
have control over her own body rather than being treated as an incubator 
against her will.

You are entitled to your opinion. 
One thing about the importantence of life between the mother and the baby is that there is a chance that other people depend on the mother. 
If you have a mother who already has some children it can be argued that her life is more important than that of her fetus because those children 
depend on her.

*Sorry for the late reply I almost forgot about this*

You actually have a point there.If her life is more important than she should abort the fetus,but if the fetus is a full on baby it'll be way too late to abort it.

Just a random question... Does this group get a lot of rage and hate from the "Pro-life" people?

I was just curious since there is millions of people who will rant about how wrong it's all wrong and whatnot... and I just wanted to know how the heck do you guys get on with this drama and deal with it all :XD: Just a curious question
