You knock off all your lame name calling BS. When have I recently called you an AH or a FIM (formerly FRI)? When did I call you a liar? Once or twice under certain circumstances? Because your posts to me have been rude and disrespectful whether my posts to you are civil or not. You either suck it up like grown ups do or you put an end to it.
If you want civility from me, be civil toward me. OR show my posts being disrespectful or uncivil toward you. And these ought to be within the past 30 days, mind you. If all you have is from a year ago, then it's time you climbed a mountain and gotten over it.
I used to like discussing issues with you because you have an insight not many ACers do. There are even some things we agree upon. But you've pushed too far with the lame name calling. And I am done with that.
You're a piece of work. Now there's a statute of limitations on your disrespect ?
You basically were saying I was mentally retarded when you called me "special". Is that disrespectful name calling recent enough for you ?

Regardless, let's start off with a clean slate here. No disrespect.
Can you please provide me with an example of a preemie reaching viability with medical assistance....as you said it could ?

Doc, I have linked up what's called The Limit of viability. I've used info from the '80s, the '90s, and in the new century as it has changed with the available technology. It gives different information regarding preemie births, stats, available technology while fetus is still in utero and after delivery.

Since the stats include the percentages of those preemies who do and do not survive with ALS, I believe I have met your demand more than once within the last year. The ball's in your court.

"How can you consider a SC decision that includes such contradictory statements to be acceptable let alone good constitutional law ?"
Because a woman's rights have to supersede and embryo's.
Your opinion regarding whose rights should supercede whose in no way addresses the issue of the fundamentally flawed arguments and contradictory statements in RvW. It is bad constitutional law...not necessarily because of the ultimate decision it may have reached...but because of the constitutional arguments, opinions, and rationalization it used to get there. If you can't argue that....and it certainly appears you can't.....just say so.
"So what ? So you define the point at which a human life is due legal protection to be some arbitrary point of separation from it's mother ? That logic doesn't hold up to any scrutiny.....legal, moral or otherwise."

Born citizens get legal protection.
Right now they do. But we're talking about the logic being used to justify why unborn human life shouldn't also be afforded legal protection. It doesn't hold up. And you're not doing anything to refute that.
"Ridiculous. We're back to talking about sperm and individual cells being considered as life. This is NOT what the SC was referring to when they spoke of "life"."

I said it wasn't the best analogy, so your little tantrum to Prince Tommy was a waste of time.
It's more than a bad analogy. It makes no sense. It was NOT what the SC was referring to when it spoke of answering the difficult question of when "life" begins.
"That would be a good start. But even now though no BC method is 100% effective, proper use of two forms of BC used in conjunction with each other would reduce the risk of pregnancy to an extremely small percentage."

Tell that to all the men who don't want to wear a condom. "Oh it doesn't feel natural boo hoo hoo!"
You're preaching to the choir here. I WOULD tell that to any dope that refused to wear a condom. What are you talking about ?
"No educated person today need ever become pregnant if they don't want to."
Tell that to all the rape and incest victims.
We're talking about those who willingly and with mutual consent engage in acts that they know full well could result in pregnancy.
FYI I support the right to abort in cases of rape and incest. Not sure where you were going with this one.

How about when you get pregnant, you get to decide if you accept or reject it. You base your decision on your circumstances, your health, your history. You base your decision on what is best for you and your family.
You don't let anyone else decide for you. And you decide for no one else.
Deal?
Nope. Not as long as another human life is at stake in that decision.
no deal.

Indeed they are...and they should be. As long as it's a medical decision that affect ONLY them.

First of all it's not a demand. It's a simple question. You said a preemie could REACH viability with medical assistance. Provide me with one example.....ONE. You can make up your own scenario. It should be easy.

Your so called stats regarding those that survive and those that don't survive with ALS means nothing.
Those that survived with ALS were viable at the time that ALS was applied. Those that did not survive were, in retrospect, NEVER viable. NEITHER is an example of a preemie REACHING viability with medical assistance.

Can you personally, in your own words, define the possible circumstances under which a preemie can reach viability with medical assistance or can you not ? The question is simple.

BS. First of all, a 14yo is a minor himself and cannot be a pedophile. Secondly, childen do not retain memories of events before the third year. Thirdly, most gay people were never molested.
you'll obviously believe anything that supports your hatred and prejudice.
<quoted text>
I never called the 14 yo a ped. Just telling what I seen. His mother told him, that his birth father molested him, and even if kids do not remember, since he didn't know -there is a spiritual transfer that you know nothing about.
Kids Inherit much from the biological parents.

Another kid in my class had severe anger issues, even though he was raised from birth, by very loving, caring pants. His real mom and dad were truck drivers, and dropped him off with them, and signed papers less than a month after birth.
There are generational curses as well, but again you know nothing about that either.

It's hard to accidently commit adultery, so yes, it is a decision. It's an action you choose to perform. One is gay whether one has sex or not.
I've had more sex partners than you've had pills, and have never had an STD; it's unprotected sex that's risky. BTW--some STD's can be transmitted through kissing, like herpes.

It's a simple question I've answered multiple times. Still you reject it, you argue against it.

So, why don't you tell me, in your own words, what you think "reaching viability" means as a phrase in conjunction with preemies born at borderline viability and how the limit of viability affects the mortality rate and survival rate of such infants.

Why? Is it becouse I say being gay, isn't normal?
If no God, then why can't people do as they please?
Would you look down upon anyone for anything?
say an adult rapes a child, or murders a child. Is that ok?
If you say no, then why?
both have happened in the past, so if you say it is not moral, then by "who's " morals?
I geuss, if there is no God, then anything (ANYTHING) a person wants to do should be ok, in their eyes, and as far as their victims, well the stronger survive, and just to bad.

You say my mother was being a whore "which I agree with ",but my.mother was single, so anyone who is single and sleeping with others are considered a whore in your book right?
Nope. Only those going to bars and bringing "home a different man every night" as you claimed.
No matter how often or how many, just like cpeter says -he has had more partners, then I could imagine. So he's a bad whore right?
Oh I dont know, he could be a good ho! Depends on how snazzy a dresser he is!

Seriously, I'm PRETTY sure he meant over TIME dear, not different men on an every night basis with impressionable children at home as you claimed your mom did.

So recap -please break down time Frame verses how many partners, so we will know if we've crossed the "foo " line of morality :)
No specific time frame dear. YOU are the one that classified your mother as a whore. Sorry, you dont get to whine about it after the fact.

I've only done pain pills, but that's strong enough!
I know what it is like to wake up, and decide within secounds how your day will be, according to how many pills you have.
I know what it's like to take 2 or 3 pills and get high, only to find yourself a few months later taking 17 at once, just to feel "normal "and doing that 3-4 times a day.
I also know how it is for a Real God to come into your life, and break away all of that garbage.
It is only by Gods grace I'm still alive!
It would be nice for once, if you got real with yourself, and stop defending your wrong.
Stop calling evil /good and good /evil.
