Just wondering if you think it is better to use BC than to depend on abortion to fix things.
Why? My personal opinion on any of it makes no difference, not only to any other woman, but to my position. Which is that I support a woman's right to make her own choice regarding her own uterus and pregnancy.

Most people who circumcize their kids are christians, idiot.

It is still cruel male mutilation that is a pagan custom that should be stopped. No one is advocating the cutting of a females c!it. However, these pagan women seem to think it is perfectly acceptable to mutilate male children for the enjoyment of the woman.
Hypocrisy and inhumane. Not fit to be mothers.

And he's apparently forgotten that it was Judaism where that practice began. They are hardly "Pagan".

While historical records may indicate that the practice of circumcision can be traced back to parts of Africa, including ancient Egypt, it happens to part of the religious law of Judaism--the "covenant with God."
The depths of your ignorance about not merely "paganism," but the roots of your own religion are apparently limitless.
Read your Bible my good "Tom-Tom." Genesis 17:10-12.
"This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised.
"And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you.
"And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed."

Seriously "Tom-tom," changing your earlier goofy screen-name to one that's equally idiotic hasn't done you any favors. Until you come up with some "new" material and drop your worn out "Pagan" schtick, and your obvious misogyny--the practice of circumcision originated in male-dominant societies--you're going to continue to be a laughingstock here...

You don't have a personal opinion or you don't want to reveal it?

Of course I have personal opinions. They're irrelevant, because I'm not the one making a choice, I'm not trying to have my personal opinions on any aspect of this issue legislated, and my personal opinions form no part of my argument in this debate.

What possible difference could it make to any woman making her own choice how I feel about any of it?

Not sure what this is except something that once again confirms what I've said....that fetal homicide laws to designate limited legal rights upon a fetus. They must or the fetus could never be a considered a victim of homicide.
As far as you ignoring me you certainly are. You ignored my response to STO which you indicated you couldn't wait to see.
You ignored his response to me in which he basically agreed that the concept of reaching viability ( outside of the hypothetical artificial womb ) was impossible.
And you ignored my direct question where I asked you to give me any scenario ( just make one up ) where an infant can currently "reach" viability with medical assistance ?
That's a lot of ignoring.
Naah. It's a matter of perspective. I read your posts, decided I didn't need to respond. What's the point anyway? Besides being contentious just for the sake of being contentious?

Artificial wombs and artificial surfactant will create changes in the medical diagnosis of viability. As long as the courts remain at a distance without having a determining factor in it (as you've predicted will be), then all is well in the world.

Did you NOT take health in school? Have you NEVER gone to an OB/GYN? Breast exams are DISCUSSED in health classes, in doctor's offices, on TV, in women's magazines. Every female with an ounce of sense knows that a breast exam done, whether by a doctor or yourself, is looking for tumors. From our teens on up, we are reminded to examine our own breasts for the earliest possible detection of breast cancer. How is that anything OTHER than breast cancer screening? Are you so stupid that you think breast cancer screening didn't occur BEFORE mammography was invented? Don't be any dumber than you must.
No one, except the liars and idiots on your side of this debate, has ever claimed that mammos are the only test for breast cancer. And even the liars know better, they are just saying it so that they can call PP liars for saying the do breast cancer screening, after it was shown that PP DID NOT lie and say they did mammos.
Boy you really have your panties in a knot, don't you. I never said PP lied about breast screenings. Go back and look.

For now. Eventually everyone will have to admit that a woman is carrying a real baby and it's life has value.

I absolutely think it's great that he found God. However, I just don't feel he's qualified to lecture anyone about the sanctity of marriage, fidelity, God and sin considering his background. Perhaps it's the cynic in me but I've always found folks who find God after doing a whole lot of questionable things, which caused them to get in trouble(in this case, a long term extra-marital affair that resulted in a child being born into that), to be rather interesting, if you will for a lack of a better word.

What kind of qualifications does one need to share his feelings and experiences?

To sum it up, the concept of "potentially viable" may only be applied to the the natural womb -- like you said. However, a fetus at the same gestational stage in the hypothetical artifical womb would be considered "viable", even tho, in reality it is "potentially viable". In both scenarios, the fetus would have to "reach viability".
Doc Degall wrote:
<quoted text>
I don't think there's anything we disagree on here. The bottom line here is that outside of the concept of the not yet plausible "artificial womb" the concept of "reaching viability" with medical assistance, outside the natural womb, is impossible.
Hear that Kate ?
Yeah I hear you believe that VIABILITY in concept applies only to the gestating fetus. I hear you believe it has no practicality being applied to a micropreemie or other premature newborns; even those who don't survive.

To me it seems like you're splitting hairs just for the sake of splitting hair. Or being contentious just for the sake of being contentious.

I maintain, a fetus determined to be viable who is delivered and attached to ALS, but dies anyway, was obviously not viable. It was unable to survive outside the womb.

Back to splitting hair -- I have interchanged VIABLE and SURVIVE throughout this yearS long discussion/disagreement. I do not believe it's been wrong to do so.
