So right on! Perfect analogy, STO :)
Thanks Katie!

You'll see how at least one poster couldn't challenge it and decided to read words that aren't there!

It's seems to be a AC trait on this thread.

I know there are some reasonable AC/PL out there, somewhere, but not this thread.

perfect analogy??? it was horrible. someone choosing to smoke is not choosing to kill another.
i do think however, that most pro lifers would want to illegalize shoving cigarettes in other's mouths and forcing them to smoke. that analogy reached a new low in analogies. did you suffer some traumatic brain injury that prevents you from recognizing what a good analogy really is?
Civil rights of personal privacy and bodily autonomy apply to smokers as well as pregnant women. You didn't know that? Is your state not having a war on smokers just as other states are having a war on women's reproductive rights? My state, well my county specifically, is waging war against smokers. Damn near the only place one can smoke anymore is in their car. But not if there're kids in it.

You aren't paying attention. The number of annual abortions has decreased. That is a good thing.
You cannot claim anything with God in it is fact. It may be "fact" to you based on your belief/faith, but it is not fact for anyone who believes differently than you do.
Did you just make a blanket statement that "Many pro choice on here want to send a message, that it is ok to have as much sex as people want, and if pregnancy occurs "which is the only way to get pregnant ",then women should be able to stop the life that is inside them, for any reason whatsoever." ???
Have you not been paying attention to Ocean or those who've posted with her?
Have you never known of sperm to travel? That it is possible to get pregnant without penetration during heavy petting? By golly, there *have* been other "virgin births" in this world during your life time. Do you mean you've never read or heard about it on the news?
So, you do equate babies with embryos, then? Even though, as far as I know, you didn't answer STO's question asking same.
My goodness, clumsy is right, Gtown. You sound like a petulant child willing it to be true, then insisting it is. Whatever "it" is!
I've read some AC/PL folks on these threads who I thought were the epitome of self-righteous - like Chooselife and marysaid, but they got nuthin' on this numbnuts. At least their logic was based in Catholicism, which is something. Gtown bases his beliefs on one night, when he says he was saved, and now thinks whatever passing thought that wanders thru his head is inspired by God.

Sorry, but a marriage does not "need" a captain. Nor does one "need" your version of Deity, and there are many that are great without any version of same.
One that will be worth its weight on paper does.
Who's in charge? The husband, the wife? Both? The kids?
What if factories had no one in charge?
Same as a home, someone must have the final say, and that choice should be made for the betterment of the family.

It is the only way it will work well, becouse men and women are different -other then physical.
When a husband and wife disagrees on a decision that must be made, then what does one do?

When there is a free for all anywhere, then you have a riot.

Sto -you may call me a liar all you wish, but realize this -you are the one that calls yourself a christian,and perhaps you are, but you attack others who call themself a christian, while being buddies, and agreeing with all that God calls unGodly.
They are not your friend, and if you tell them what God says, and that is what you believe, you will find out just what they think of you.
Christians tell others about Christ in different ways, maybe you remember the ones who ask Jesus if they could call fire down from Heaven and consume the others "who were not doing it their way ".
Jesus said -those who are not against me, are for me.
You like to walk the fence, claiming one thing while you act like you believe another.
There comes a time you must choose which side your on, becouse there will come a day when the wheat and the tares are seperated, and if you are a christian, you will have many wondering why YOU never told them.
You like to ignore the content of the posts you respond to.

You are a liar.

I've quoted a few of your lies. Here's another: "you attack others who call themself a christian, while being buddies, and agreeing with all that God calls unGodly."

What attack? Who is unGodly? Why are you lying?

I don't see any of them advocating to illegalize tobacco. When you apply the same logic they use regarding abortion, they are, again, silent.
Oh, you don't want to outlaw smoking, huh? Well, I guess that means even tho YOU wouldn't smoke and don't approve of smoking, or have no opinion on the matter, since you don't want it banned you also drive smokers down to the local smoke shop, buy their cigarettes, open the pack, pull one out, stick it in their mouth, and light it up for 'em! Yeah, your a ProSmoker cuz you think folks should have the right to choose to smoke or not!
So abortion and smoking are the same ?

Plus who are they?
Are you refering to christians who talk about christ?

Of course it was perfect. You don't understand it, as evidenced by your above post.
Here: I'll dumb it down for ya.
AC asserts that to be Prochoice is to encourage abortion.
I am asserting if the same logic is applied to smoking (Prochoice for smoking), those who believe smoking should be a choice are encouraging it.
there's your mistake. saying that ac asserts that pro choice is to encourage abortion is a not true. oh sure some may, but most do not. I am ac and I assert no such thing. ac asserts that pro choice supports abortion as a choice. your analogy was based upon a false premise. it sucks.
i ran your analogy past a few analogy experts. their consensus rating was a 0.5 on a scale of 1 to 10.

You can believe whatever archaic nonsense you want, I don't believe I ever said you don't. I have the SAME right to CALL those beliefs archaic nonsense, whether you like my doing so or not.
It is indeed archaic to believe that women have NO other valid function than reproduction. Motherhood IS optional, whether anti-choicers like that fact or not.
So it is Archaic nonsense because you don't believe in some level of diety??? I mean why wouldn't it just be nonsense? Personally it matters little to me, I am very comfortable in my life and my position on the issue, but you seem to go over the top with the name calling and such. I happen to be opposed to abortion, with a few exceptions, but I am always interested in the opinions of those who believe otherwise. It is how we learn to understand more about who we are and if our convictions are really that well set for our journey. You seem more hung up with the religious side of the issue! I been down that road too many times, it never gets anywhere! Good luck

Can't be a false premise when you admit "some may". They do. sjm is one. Never said "all". If you're not one uv'em, then I'm not talking about you.

It's a GREAT analogy!

I asked him once if he shared with his physician this "fact" that God came to him when he didn't believe. I think he laughed it off. What can you do? Mr Mary was posting in other threads when Gtown showed up here and for a while I did wonder if they were the same (or related). Am still undecided on this, though.

<quoted text>True story Ocean. Last year Cody, my 15 year old nephew had his first girlfriend. Good christian girl, she was 12 at the time. He posted it on Facebook that he was now in a relationship. His step mom who lives in NY with his bio dad told Cody she would supply the condoms if he needed them!
What is a good christian girl doing having sex at 12?

Yes, in a legal sense, smoking and abortion are the same. It is what one chooses to do with their body. A personal decision. Nobody else's business.

A smoker smoking around a nonsmoker may endanger that nonsmoker's life. May even give them a death sentence with fatal lung cancer or some other cancer. Do we arrest them for this? Do we charge them with murder? Do you want to criminalize smoking to protect the innocent nonsmokers who didn't ask for fatal cancer?

A woman with an unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy may terminate her pregnancy. Do we arrest her for this? Do we charge her with murder? Do you want to criminalize terminating unwanted/unhealthy pregnancies to protect the innocent ZEFs who didn't ask to conceived or terminated?
