Just because you and Foo are accepting of sending daughters and granddaughters off to war doesn't mean I am dumb to not want to. I think your position is dumb and dangerous. You guys are as coldhearted about your born daughters as you are about the unborn girls.
Daughters and granddaughters already go off to war. Do you not want them forced to enlist, Ink? Like I don't want some women forced to carry an unwanted/unhealthy pregnancy?

Actually, that's exactly how I grew up.
<quoted text> Yes Inkstain, EVERYONE had dysfunction in their families. EVERYONE had it to some degree. We simply didn't publicise it the way its made so public today.
You made a patently STUPID comment that what people or kids dealt with was "mostly positive" and that's complete, 100% BULLSHIT. You think there wasn't problems, illness, disease, bullying, abuse in families or communities back 'in the day'?
You're not naive, you're deliberately stupid.
And your glass is half full. LOL

I was thinking more about daughters and granddaughters and I admit I wouldn't want them going to the middle east to fight a war.
And most SANE parents, NOT just mothers, dont want EITHER child to go to the middle east to fight in a war. "Sane" mothers didn't want their children doing it during ANY war.

Not only that, there were 19,000 reports of sexual assault in the military last year.
ONLY 19000? There are over 1,426,713 people in the active military. There were over 683,000 sexual assults on women alone last year. That doesn't count the men assulted.

What does that have to do with anything?

You DO know women have been in the military for decades now right?@@
I am used to the men in my family fighting and would hate to see the girls being forced to if the women's movement gets their way with equal rights.
You'd get used to the women fighting as well, just like everyone would.

If the women doing the fighting are okay with it, who are you to disagree? Its not like anybody that matters actually gives a shit what you think.

Nobody's talking about FORCING women to fight. There hasn't been a draft since Nam. Its a volunteer military today.

AGAIN, you sound like you're saying the men are expendable but the women aren't.

You are dumb. Every post proves it.

There is nothing cold hearted in my position, which is not quite what you are pretending it is.

You're a moron Inkstain. Seriously. Dirt stupid.

Nobody here has even REMOTELY said we LIKE the idea, but yes, if that's what the women WANT to do, then its not up to us to say no.

We're not coldhearted, we're honest, and you can't handle that honesty.

YOU are the coldhearted one with the position that its okay for the men to die for their country, but the women shouldn't want to OR to do it if it comes to that.

One would think YOU are the stereotype of a lesbian that "hates men" since you seem to think only the men are the expendible ones.

Posting the FACTS that life in the 50's was not as fanciful or perfect as you like to claim has nothing to do with the view that the glass is half full TODAY over how you and your idiot friend Gtown views life.

Are you claiming there was no illness, no disease, no abuse, no joblessness, no pain, heartbreak, suffering in the 50's?

Do you think life was like you saw it on Leave It To Beaver?

I'm 49, and had several friends who were being raised in single parent households.
Still, that doesn't address your comment that two parent households were "mostly positive". Because that's bull.
I had a great childhood, and my parents were married for almost 60 years when my mother died. But, again, I'm not stupid enough to think my experience was everyone's experience, or even "most" everyone.
don't underestimate yourself. you are more than stupid enough.

You ignored this point earlier today.
No, when it comes to opinion, we don't "need to make sure we're right".
Your religious beliefs are irrelevant to anyone who doesn't share them. So are mine. It's personal.
Every PCer here has been clear that they support choice. There is no "secret" here.
Not one PCer here has ever suggested that doctors should be made to perform elective abortions. Not one. When you have to lie this way, you've already lost the argument, you know.
You're right, you can't legislate morality. However, this statement coming from you contradicts other things you have said. And legislating morality is what the vast majority of anti-choicers are attempting to do in this case.
Given that nearly two-thirds of the country, including some who consider themselves "pro-life" think RvW should be upheld, I'd say it would still be legal if put to the vote. Still, the right to make one's own choice about one's own pregnancy is part of the civil right we all have to privacy, based upon the civil right of all citizens to "life, liberty and property". And that is not up for popular vote. The same reasoning that prevents us from owning a person's body also applies to a woman's uterus. Period.
There may very well be absolutes, but no one on earth knows them. You may have personal absolutes, and act according to them. You don't get to impose them on others. Your right to swing your fist ends at my face.
Your beliefs about what any god may or may not think, and about the need for a savior, is irrelevant to others. No one is obligated to live according to your personal beliefs.
"Not one PCer here has ever suggested that doctors should be made to perform elective abortions. Not one."

I think that you are wrong about this. Some time ago there was a thread about pharmacists that refused to fill BC prescriptions, within that conversation we discussed OB/GYNs and their role in elective abortions. Several pro"choicers", as I recall, felt that if the OB/GYN wouldn't perform elective abortions then they should find another line of work. We also discussed residents being required to perfom elective abortions as part of their training.

I believe you're remembering incorrectly. I remember people saying that about emergency situations, not elective abortions.

I don't want to get used to the idea of my granddaughters going of to war and frankly, I don't think moms should be expendable. History says men do the fighting.

There is a lot of talk about the draft comming back and women will be included. In fact Panetta former director was just asked about it.

She is very much against choice when someone doesn't want to provide a product, pay for a servce or refuses to perform a service that goes against their moral fiber.

She is only for choice if it involves the possibility of aborting a fetus.

History says no such thing. There are many instances of women fighting in history, even leading armies. You are mistaken. Have you forgotten Joan of Arc?
