"In fact, "I" could have said that I lived by such a creed prior to 1973....and you would have had a major argument with it."<quoted text>
Master of the obvious. We know.( Not in all states, by the way )
Not a thing. Except for one minor thing. None of this has anything to do with my original point, which was....
You said you defended a woman's freedom to choose WITHIN THE LAW. Then you went on to question how anyone could have an argument with such a laudable creed. Yet the fact is you would have NOT professed to live by such a laudable creed pre-1973. In fact, "I" could have said that I lived by such a creed prior to 1973....and you would have had a major argument with it. THAT was the point.
You had two chances to answer and you failed. You no longer have to.........I answered for you.
You implied it did not meet some criteria for being considered to be alive. Then went on to say that it did not meet the definition of "life".....which brings us back to the original point. The fetus is no doubt a live and developing human. It is the PC that have established the subjectively chosen point at which that life is worth anything or is worthy of protection. How sanctimoniously and self righteously in violation of the fundamental right to life can you be that you would consider the right to privacy as the basis for dictating when a human life should be worthy of protection ?
The civil rights of the born are already restricted in cases where innocent human life is at stake.
Well it's not prior to 1973 so I guess your question is moot. We're discussing this 40 years after 1973. We're discussing this in the context of the present, not the past. What I would've said when I was little kid in 1973 is irrelevant.
"It is the PC that have established the subjectively chosen point at which that life is worth anything or is worthy of protection.
Really? And when did I say that "chosen point" is? Refresh my memory.
What I have said is that I would not make the personal choice to have an abortion, and that I let others make that determination for themselves.
"The civil rights of the born are already restricted in cases where innocent human life is at stake."
If you want to speak about the broad category of civil rights then white American males have enjoyed the least amount of restrictions to their civil rights, and I'm guessing you're in that elite group. I wonder if Ole Doc would've been fighting for women's right to vote, or to end slavery. And I wonder if Ole Doc is helping gay citizens obtain the right to marry their same sex partners...or is Doc just interested in forcing the womenfolks to stay pregnant against their will. I guess in Doc's utopia women are really on the bottom of the totem pole. Even an embryo is supposed to have rights that supersedes a woman's rights.
