Niggle was feeling very tired and sleepy; he was hardly aware of what was going on when they bundled him into his compartment. He did not care much: he had forgotten where he was supposed to be going, or what he was going for. The train ran almost at once into a dark tunnel.
Niggle woke up in a very large, dim railway station. A Porter went along the platform shouting, but he was not shouting the name of the place; he was shouting Niggle!
It was a long while before he even began to grope in the back of his mind for the curses that he had practically forgotten. He went on digging, till his back seemed broken, his hands were raw, and he felt that he could not manage another spadeful. Nobody thanked him.

There are thousands of mentions of "criminal" too--that doesn't make it the basis for the rulings.

Does RvW mention the DOI?

A quick search at Findlaw indicates that there are at least 100 United States Supreme Court cases that mention the words "Declaration of Independence" somewhere in the dicta of that opinion.

The Constitution included a “Fugitive Slave Clause.” This stipulation (Article 4, Section 2, Clause 3) stated that,“no person held to service or labor” would be released from bondage in the event they escaped to a free state. The legality of Personal Liberty Laws was eventually challenged in the 1842 Supreme Court case Prigg v. Pennsylvania. The case concerned Edward Prigg, a Maryland man who was convicted of kidnapping after he captured a suspected slave in Pennsylvania. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of Prigg, setting the precedent that federal law superseded any state measures that attempted to interfere with the Fugitive Slave Act.

Restricting abortion is no more "Political Theater" than Ted Cruz's Obamacare filibuster.

The cult of climate change is dead. Cut government spending; start anywhere.

Niggle was lying in the dark, resting completely; so that, as he had not been either feeling or thinking at all, he might have been lying there for hours or for years, as far as he could tell. But now he heard Voices: not voices that he had ever heard before. There seemed to be a Medical Board, or perhaps a Court of Inquiry, going on close at hand, in an adjoining room with the door open, possibly, though he could not see any light.

Good. Let's start with cutting tax-exempt status for churches and political groups.

Cruz's filibuster was the purest form of political theatre; it was a tantrum that did not and could not achieve anything. It was a sideshow thay you teabaggers sucked up like dog consumes its own vomit.

this is exactly what they are doing. and the blk community is foolishly getting all riled up when these folk could care less about blk babies in the first place.
They say that life's a carousel
Spinning fast, you've got to ride it well
The world is full of Kings and Queens
Who blind your eyes and steal your dreams
It's Heaven and Hell, oh well
And they'll tell you black is really white
The moon is just the sun at night
And when you walk in golden halls
You get to keep the gold that falls
It's Heaven and Hell, oh no!
Fool, fool!
You've got to bleed for the dancer!
Fool, fool!
Look for the answer!
Fool, fool, fool!

its weird how "zef" repeatedly contends that the woman is responsible for the fetus being in her womb in the first place....a fetus is the biological make up of two individuals and did not just automatically form inside a woman's womb.

just because my biology is made to accept conception and carry it to term does not mean I am obligated to procreate.

you have no compassion for women who have been raped.

So a fetus isn't a woman but female fetuses are women? BS. You haven't an honest bone in your body.
Rights and laws are inextricably linked. Fetuses do not have rights. A woman who aborts clearly does NOT give permission for the fetus to be there, idiot.
<quoted text>
Fetus is how mature you are. How mature a person is has absolutely nothing to do with the rights a person has. Human rights are determined by whether or not an individual is human, not how old an individual is. Woman is determined by gender, the female gender, therefore female human fetus are women. Rights and laws are not inextricably linked. Laws that violate human rights, such as laws allowing abortion, or slavery, are not linked to rights at all. Tacit permission has nothing to do with what a mother chooses to do. Tacit permission means the child has permission to be where it, because of the mother's reproductive system gave the child tacit permission to be there. Irregardless of who the mother chooses to kill, the reproductive system of the mother cannot choose to kill anybody.

"Tacit permission means the child has permission to be where it, because of the mother's reproductive system gave the child tacit permission to be there."

Now ORGANS can give consent? You're incredibly ignorant, and sadly desperate.

Tacit permission does not mean organs can give consent. Tacit means indicated by an act but not actually expressed. Which means that because the mother's reproductive system is responsible for the baby being there, an act of the mother put the baby where it is. Since an act of the mother is responsible for the baby being where it, the baby has tacit consent to be there.

"Well," said the Second Voice, "there are these. He was a painter by nature. In a minor way, of course; still, a Leaf by Niggle has a charm of its own. He took a great deal of pains with leaves, just for their own sake. But he never thought that that made him important. There is no note in the Records of his pretending, even to himself, that it excused his neglect of things ordered by the law."

That's the most convoluted BS I've ever read. Tacit permission is still a deliberate act--tacit just means "unspoken". A woman who aborts clearly did not give the fetus permission to be in the uterus.
