So what would you call the development of vital organs and the brain in the very early stages? Please don't say an inconvenience.
Are you okay with sucking developing puppies out of its mother's womb into a vacuum?
If you say yes, then the discussion is over. I think I understood you perfectly. You have no clue as to the meaning or sanctity of life in any shape or form.
Even though I disgree w/abortion as a means of ANY sort of "birth control" (as that really is another area-more along dire action for desperate circumstances) because scientifically, fetus's are mutants until around 23 weeks.

And there's really nothing "holy" or good at all about rape, incest, one nighter non committed type of stuff, or ay other type of ignorance in the similar realms.

Because as far as that goes--Life is life, be it moth, a snake, a puppy, a spider or whatever.

Why one ounce of PREVENTION is worth a pund of cure is STILL absolutely the BEST, and most RESPONSIBLE method.

<quoted text>What a dummy...but with that as your philosophy, go forth and be just as irresponsible as you Gormless Obsolete Primates see to be. You did know that Ronnie's Nancy was knocked up when that blessed union took place; likewise Sarah Palin. Were Nancy and Sarah irresponsible gold diggers or were Ronnie and Todd idiots who overvalued, or underestimated, their own loins?
Both married and raised their children, showing responsibility, so the motivation is immaterial.

I'm giving you scientific facts about the early stages of development.

You can ignore them but it's not a matter of choice whether to believe them or not.

The Navy vetting process is akin to the 08 McCain campaign VP vetting process.

My guess is that the guy was a smooth talker who gained trust quickly, kinda like E-mutt and DB Joikov__that cat could own the weak such as Carol, Flack, Fletch, and the stooge from Indy.

I said emissions had decreased. Not the amount in the atmosphere.
The amount being released into the atmosphere yearly has been lower.
Its less but it still is adding to the concentration in our atmosphere.
Just admit you were wrong & save us your future embarrassment& lies trying to squirm out of it.
you said emissions dropped under Obama. That means if emissions were 100 ppm on bush's last day, they are less than that now. With the earths natural ability to clean the atmosphere how are co2 levels reaching 400ppm man fault? Our emissions (according to you) have dropped. You stepped in your own shy dumbass.

Still no reason for federal taxpayer funding.

Balancing the federal budget requires many hard decisions, including cutting all programs not legally mandated.

See, Galt is saying that it is up to the woman to demand the guy put on a condom and not the man's responsibility to wear one.

A Nobel Prize and Millions of Dollars?
In his speech, dubbed, "Earth Has A Fever," Al Gore referred to a prediction by U.S. climate scientist Wieslaw Maslowski that the Arctic's summer ice could "completely disappear" by 2013 due to global warming caused by carbon emissions.
He went on to say that "scientists reported with unprecedented alarm that the North Polar icecap is, in their words,'falling off a cliff.' One study estimated that it could be completely gone during summer in less than 22 years."
Maslowski himself told members of the American Geophysical Union the same year that the Arctic's summer ice could completely disappear within the decade.
"If anything, our projection of 2013 for the removal of ice in summer... is already too conservative," he said.
Fast-forward to the present day.
Satellite photos of the Arctic taken by NASA in August 2012 and August 2013 show a 60 percent increase in the polar ice sheet, more than half the size of Europe, despite "realistic" predictions by climate scientists six years ago that the North Pole would be completely melted by now.
So basically due to Al Gore's due diligence and getting the word out he saved the Arctic icecap from melting away? Sweet.
