I wish I had the exact transcript. I listened a couple of times. At about 1:45, did I hear Allred say that no woman should be forced to take a pregnancy to term when it might present a risk to the fetus OR the mother? Did I hear that right???
Is there actually something that presents a greater risk to a fetus than being aborted?
I don't know, maybe if Allred was your mother?!?Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.

Gloria was a guest on one of the local talk shows last night. One of the hosts had also done a little research and smacked her with this. She instantly offered all of the following objections in lieu of a coherent answer:
There isn't a specific and positive exemption for abortion in the Philippine criminal code. (Obviously, if the law doesn't consider the act a criminal act under specific medical circumstances, there wouldn't be.)
Tebow's mother might not have had enough money to pay for an abortion. (Because missionaries can never get funds for emergency medical treatment or tickets home. )
Even if it's true (rolls eyes), it would make otherwise sensible women decide to kill themselves along with their nearly dead kids just to play along.
Even if it's true, there are still millions of American women who can't get abortions on demand because all the doctors are terrified of the crowds of trigger-happy fundies roaming the hinterland.

These people make me want to pull what little hair I have left out. I almost fell out of my chair when Allred said how difficult it is for poor women to get abortions. Um, hey Gloria, they found it easy enough to get pregnant. Again, quoting Chris Rock in his Black people vs. Niggaz rant, if you can't afford kids, STOP FUCKING! But these babbling baboons like Allred can't seem to wrap their puny little minds around the thought of personal responsibility. IMO I'd rather Planned Parenthood promote some kind of sterilization of so called poor people who can't afford abortions than the wanton slaughter of innocent unborn babies who didn't ask to be conceived in the first place.

To counter the Tebow's ad, Planned Parenthood has a couple of retired athletes who'll extol the importance of a woman making her own choice because she knows what is best for her.
Isn't that exactly what Mrs. Tebow did?Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.

I just worried he won't get drafted due to this.
