All this misleading and conclusory claim (on what basis do you deem any particular number "high," by the way?) demonstrates is your own lack of attention to this issue.
I consider about half to be high. It's definitely not a super majority but I suppose that could be reached if the income constraints were altered. I don't consider $20,000/year a very comfortable living, not to mention $10,000 but that depends on the area.
Half ... of what, exactly? Are you saying that the breakdown of poor to not-poor women should be some percentage other than what it is? As in, you believe that poor women should not be the ones getting abortions? Why would you believe that? Or do you mean simply that the number of women getting abortions itself is "too high" (and it isn't half of women btw; the Guttmacher link estimates that by age 45, about one-third of all women will have had an abortion)? Again, "too high" based on what? And what does the cost of living have to do with your assessment? If anything, that would seem to explain why "such" a "high" percentage of poor women have abortions: because while an abortion may be cost-prohibitive, it's nothing compared to the price of pregnancy, childbirth and raising a kid.
And save your moralizing about diverse perspectives (omg some women want to give birth and others don't? WHAAAT?!) for your weekly anti-choice circlejerk. That "women," just like regular people(!), are not some kind of emotional monolith surprises no actual grown-ups.
What are you going on about? I don't have any dogs in this race.
That's self-evidently disingenuous. The words you are typing are not the words of people who mind their own business and don't give a lick what other people do with their own bodies.
Besides your selective quotes and emotional language you also curiously use counties instead of states so you can get a sensational figure, with emphasis added no less.
Cute. If sarcasm is "emotional language" in your world, you must find the internet a scary place indeed. You're the one who started in with below-the-belt accusations, implicitly accusing "women" of doublespeak because you've heard the term "clump of cells" used in reference to abortion (that phrase is is pretty much a strawman caricature used by anti-choicers, btw -- seriously, google the phrase and tell me how many actual pro-choicers you're able to dig up who actually use it) and yet you're aware of the fact that many women (and men, but why target men when targeting women is so much more fun, right?) feel the pain of loss after a miscarriage. If you genuinely don't understand how ignorant and manipulative your sentiment was, then I apologize for wrongly misjudging you as someone with an ounce of basic understanding regarding emotional context.
As to counties versus states, I was just citing one of the numbers from the link you supplied. I guess you like some of the numbers and not others? I don't deny that counties aren't the only relevant number, although your reference to Texas is hilarious for at least two reasons, both of which tend to underscore my point: Texas is a huge land mass. To say it has "at least" one abortion clinic in the entire state is about as meaningful as saying that England and France have at least one abortion clinic between them. And, unless you live under a rock, you're surely aware that Texas is one of the least friendly states for women seeking to terminate a pregnancy. In fact, if a recent law passed in Texas is upheld, there will be fewer than ten abortion clinics remaining in the entire state; as it is currently, many women already have to drive more than a hundred miles to the nearest provider.
This issue overwhelmingly involves young women and poverty. US teen pregnancy is highest in the developed world. Apparently abortions aren't convenient enough?
So just to summarize, in case you are still confused: this shit like what you just wrote here? That's what makes it clear that you absolutely do have a "dog in this race." Your comment is littered with concern trolling and rhetorical sleights of hand. I frankly question whether you have an ounce of sincerity in your body when it comes to this issue. You may find my irritation with your intellectual dishonesty "emotional," but at least I'm not trying to hide my views on the topic.
