Unless it is a woman i plan to marry or do not mind dealing with (and giving money to) I have 0 ZERO qualms about them getting an abortion.

I got plenty of baby batter to make more with. No point on wasting $$ on some slore that would otherwise go to my unborn child within a marriage to my future wife.

Quote :
"Across Country, Lawmakers Push Abortion Curbs

Newly energized by their success in November’s midterm elections, conservative legislators in dozens of states are mounting aggressive campaigns to limit abortions.

The lawmakers are drafting, and some have already introduced, bills that would ban most abortions at 20 weeks after conception, push women considering abortions to view a live ultrasound of the fetus, or curb insurance coverage, among other proposals."


Quote :
"Although social issues were often played down in the campaigns, many of the newly elected governors and legislators are also solidly anti-abortion, causing advocates of abortion rights to brace for a year of even tougher battles than usual.

The biggest shift is in the state capitols, with 29 governors now considered to be solidly anti-abortion, compared with 21 last year."


Quote :
"In 15 states, compared with 10 last year, both the legislature and the governor are anti-abortion, according to a new report by Naral, and those joining this category include larger states like Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin, as well as Georgia and Oklahoma. Maine and Pennsylvania are now strongly anti-abortion as well"

it shouldn't really be a surprise that its a top issue. for people that believe that a fetus is alive, abortion is murder. murder is generally a pretty serious issue.

Whenever two humans interact they are in that position what is your point?

I and other humans routinely kill animals that seemingly have more sensory and cognitive ability than infants let alone fetuses. There are also already waaaaay too many people on this earth.
Abortion isn't a happy thing but I would rather have aborted fetuses than unwanted children consuming resources.

Actually since 'fetus' is used to describe a developing mammal after the embryonic stage but before birth, I'd say at some point during gestation (after the proper neural physiology has developed and activated) the fetus has consciousness. I get (but don't necessarily agree with) late term abortions equivocated with murder, but not in first and early-second trimester abortions.

And since aaronburron vomited all over the page, I'll repost my point:

yes. because PP doesn't have enough money on its own to operate it's murder clinics. Look, if people thing it's a valuable thing, why don't they just donate their own money to it, instead of stealing other people's money to support causes they might have a moral abhorrence to?

lol, who said I can't stand to see it? I was referring to the fact that you pushed the text down with images. Your stupid-ass shock treatments designed to distract from scientific fact don't phase me any more than the bullshit does on the brickyard.

Defunding Title X and Planned Parenthood gets rid of all federal funding for family planning and contraception.

Keep trying the appeals to emotion though.

That's a human being, all right. The question is if it is developed to the point where it can be considered a conscious human being.


Quote :

Sure they are. They are capable of personal volition, although to a simpler degree than fully-functional people. As far as those in a vegetative state, I cant really answer your question, but studies have shown (controversial) evidence of awareness. Then again, you can't really be sure that anyone other than yourself is conscious, but you can reasonably assume in most cases.

My fault, I don't know my biology terms. IMO it really gets into the gray area when the fetus starts to feel physical sensation (around 24 weeks).

that you are willing to do so says a lot about you. if you have an actual moral abhorrence to something, I'd think it would compel you on some level to change things. But really, you have no problem with forcing someone to pay for something that might go against their religious beliefs? Typical liberal


^ I'll take that as an admission that you can't defend your murdering beliefs. I guess that whole "All men are created equal and have certain inalienable rights" thing isn't important to you. typical liberal.

Pretty much ever war is devaluing certain human lives in favor of others. Where is your moral outrage? How about this. If you have such a problem with abortion DON'T GET ONE.

K, troll. Why does an unconscious lifeform deserve rights? "Because it's human" is not a sufficient answer.

Also would like to ask: do you think abortion is wrong in EVERY situation? This including when the mother was raped or when she has a high risk of death during delivery (but the baby will live).

I'd say that we should avoid war as much as possible. I see no conflict there.

if you have such a problem with murder, don't kill people, right? No need to outlaw murder, right?

It doesn't "deserve rights." IT FUCKING HAS THEM. That's what a fucking right is, dumb fuck. Typical liberal, not actually understanding what a right is

Since you seem to think that only religious beliefs count try this one on for size.
Quakers have a fundamental moral abhorrence of war. Somehow they still have their money "stolen" to pay for war efforts. How can you make them fund something that might go against their religious beliefs??????

you don't get it. the concept of a righ, is not something that you argue over whether something should have. It either does or it doesn't have it. there is no "should."

Where is your outrage? Should I be spewing pictures of slain civilians and children crying to make my point? You want to talk about valuing one human life over another it seems right now like you are valuing a clump of cells in a womans uterus over a fully functioning humans in other countries. You might want to step back and think about that.

What about Muslims? Government funding goes towards alcohol and pork production and I think they have a problem with the ingestion of those products. Where is your outrage? THERE MONEY IS BEING STOLEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

unless you move away from any and all nations, your nation will be involved in a war. It is inevitable. Abortion is not. There's the difference. My claim, then, that we should minimize war, is logical, as it minimizes a situation that I do not like.

It is intellectually dishonest of you to compare an fetus with undeveloped neural physiology to an "unconscious person"

A fetus without a functioning nervous system is not a person. An adult human that has been decapitated is not a person for the very same reason.
