Interesting story about the catholic church/hospital and the fetuses. THe mom came into the ER throwing up and had a heart attack before they could even get her into a room. She died, then the babies inside her died. Husband sued. It's now been seven years.
I need to read more because I can't determine whether I side with the hospital (as in, they aren't guilty of malpractice) or with the dad.
But too many parents sue for wrongful death of their children out of grief, rather than just accepting that sometimes, horrible things happen and that's just life.
I agree with you 100% that sometimes bad things happen -- but is it per chance this situation? Link: http://www.vice.com/read/a-catholic-hospital-...

If it is, I believe it's testing Roe v. Wade more than anything (with just skimming and reading the article).

Okay, read it. I side with the hospital but I'm loving that the Catholic hospital is legally making the argument that a fetus is not a person.

Of course, they are only speaking in terms of legal definitions and not necessarily their views. Still, most people won't see it that way.

We've hashed on this before, and I posted links and proof that statistically, gays are three times more likely to molest children.

(Remember, you can't use sheer numbers because straights vastly outnumber gays.)

Yeah, it's that case. But they're not giving us any helpful details, just the sensationalist aspects.

He despises anyone who doesn't share his views and demonizes them as un American. Typical narrow-minded liberal.

Sounds like a typical narrow-minded republican on these boards.

OK. We've been trying it the National Rifle Association's way.
How long would it take to manufacture 315 million assault rifles?
Then we can all just have it out.
Thank goodness for the wisdom of the White House. Obviously, a ban on assault rifles will put an end to accidents with pistols and shotguns.

Its not the accidents we worry about, it is the intentional slaughters.

If you worry about them, you should support measures that would actually prevent them. Not feel good measures, that can easily be worked around. As many of us have pointed out, banning assault rifles won't prevent massacres. You can do just as much damage in many settings with a couple of handguns and extra clips.

Saw an article today and it said only 4% of homicides are caused by rifles, 4% with shotguns, I think 8% with other weapons, and the rest are caused with handguns.

Although I appreciate the media sensationalism such events cause, are 20 lives lost in a single massacre with an assault rifle more valuable than 20 lives lost in individual hand gun shootings? Do the loved ones of those 20 individuals who die in individual shootings feel any different than the loved ones of the 20 who die in a single massacre.

Which has absolutely no bearing on sams agenda. Assault style weapons must be banned, and every firearm accident from potato cannon to nuke only proves that point.

I think the only new gun laws that *might* make a difference is federally mandated waiting periods and background checks. But that’s a very iffy “might.” And along a federal mandate has to come with funding. Just this month, a MN sheriff discovered (I think via FB somehow) that a local “kid” had amassed a hell of an arsenal, and he’s not legally allowed to own guns – because he shot his mother to death when he was 14 and spent 10 years or so in psychiatric care and has been determined that he is a threat to others (but they released him anyway).

He bought those guns legally as far as, different entities weren’t sharing information, so when a sheriff’s office did a standard background check, they didn’t discover his mental health issues and violent background.

So even following the laws, he amassed a ton of guns, and no gun seller did anything wrong.

So I tried calling Dickie at work several times today; no answer. Just talked to him only to find out that he *had been * at work but left to go golfing. He didn't want to fess up but he finally did. It was almost like he was sleeping with another woman! He says pictures were taken of him on the course...

That's fine. I'm satisfied with the fact that he got drenched twice.
