"I have no clue what those numbers and letters represent. Some bill, possibly?
Regardless, I have no stance on abortion. I believe life starts at sentience, but I'm in the odd conundrum where I don't believe sentience starts until multiple…"
"Stating you are right with no data or scientific reason to back it up except for claiming the 'right of your belief' is a common argument used by religion. This groundless approach is none the less allowed to influence legislation. For…"
"A minor quibble. (Yes, I know, I quibble a lot. I have a habit of trying for precision.)
"It is not the case that people who disagree with you are stupid, crazy, dumb, irrational, evil, bitter, up to go good, part of a (insert your favorite…"
"Discourse on a subject
-especially when legislation is involved
is paramount into developing understanding of your own motives.
While I fully agree that name calling gets us nowhere, the fact of the matter is that this thread DID make a difference.…"
"I always assumed that most people are anti-abortion. No one really seems to prefer that abortions happen. To me; if someone can have an abortion or not simply is not for the government to decide. I don't think it is my place to tell another…"
"Summer, I'm in COMPLETE agreement. An intelligent friend of mine from high school told me the only thing no one can take away from us is our ability to choose. I am pro Choice also because I believe that everyone has the right to choose.
"Supporting the right of women to make their own choice regarding abortion is very different from buying a season pass to the abortion factory.
Personally, I believe that all women have the right to terminate a pregnancy within the first trimester,…"
"I also question the line of thinking of a person claiming to be a libertarian while supporting social medicine, and opposing abortion.
From the Cato Institute:
The Rule of Law. Libertarianism is not libertinism or hedonism. It is not a claim that…"
"I agree with you, and would imagine most of us who support a woman's right to determine the best course of action for her own body, also wish to see abortions be a rare occurrence. I know I despise anyone who repeatedly chooses to seek…"
"3: THE FETUS IS NOT A PART OF YOUR BODY! You have every right to control your body, but your right to swing your fist ends at the tip of my nose.
Until you have a way to incubate said "fetus" without my body, it is in fact part of my body"
"Oh.. I'm all for that. In fact, I don't think a kick in the balls (or ovaries) could be hard enough!
It's a tricky, nasty situation. I'm not FOR nonchalant abortions, but I know that there is no one on this earth that can weigh…"
"I guess I'm letting my feelings get in the way a bit here. I can't prevent either the conception or abortion by the ignorant so it's like chasing my own fetal tail. I read into things too deeply sometimes & wish a case by case…"
"Oh yeah. And from what I know of you, your view is always a valid one. It might not reflect that of 100% of the population, but at least you research, do a thoughtful response and argue logic.
That's what make all opinions (even debatable ones)…"
i'm CHOSING not to continue following your discussion because it's stupid...however...looking forward to you actually contributing to the site sometime...oh and pro-choice doesn't just mean pro-abortion. and for that matter if you're so pro-life then you prob. don't believe in contrception...you're pro-incest views are disturbing as well..
Nulono, I just want to give you props for posting a good discussion and standing your ground. The NRLC makes some good arguments too on tope of the Libertarians. Not saying that I agree, but you make a decent argument.
