In this country, rights attach at birth or naturalization. Deal with it.

Quoting the DOI is stupid; it's not a ruling document.

So, I guess the PLM is a traitorous plague.

All people have rights, not just women. Besides which, most of the people killed with abortion are women. Because most of the people that choose to kill their babies with abortion choose to kill their daughters. By creating an unnatural abundance of males in the population, and an unnatural shortage of females in the population with gender selective abortion. Women can devalue the men that they subject to their bidding, while increasing their own worth and importance. If demand decreases and supply increases, a surplus occurs, leading to a lower value. If demand increases and supply decreases, a shortage occurs, leading to a higher value.
By sacrificing themselves with gender selective abortions, women have given themselves an unnaturally higher value, while giving men an unnaturally lower value. Women can and do assure the continuation of their reign of tyranny and terror, and their legion of simple minded sychophants with gender selective abortion. What decrepid old hag doesn't want a horde of young men fauning for her attention?

Human rights are inherent, not attatched.
Nations come into being in many ways. Military rebellion, civil strife, acts of heroism, acts of treachery, a thousand greater and lesser clashes between defenders of the old order and supporters of the new--all these occurrences and more have marked the emergences of new nations, large and small. The birth of our own nation included them all. That birth was unique, not only in the immensity of its later impact on the course of world history and the growth of democracy, but also because so many of the threads in our national history run back through time to come together in one place, in one time, and in one document: the Declaration of Independence.
Drafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11 and June 28, 1776, the Declaration of Independence is at once the nation's most cherished symbol of liberty and Jefferson's most enduring monument. Here, in exalted and unforgettable phrases, Jefferson expressed the convictions in the minds and hearts of the American people. The political philosophy of the Declaration was not new; its ideals of individual liberty had already been expressed by John Locke and the Continental philosophers. What Jefferson did was to summarize this philosophy in "self-evident truths" and set forth a list of grievances against the King in order to justify before the world the breaking of ties between the colonies and the mother country. The nation to which the Declaration gave birth has had an immense impact on human history, and continues to do so. In telling the story of the parchment, it is appropriate to recall the words of poet and Librarian of Congress Archibald MacLeish. He described the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution as "these fragile objects which bear so great a weight of meaning to our people." The story of the Declaration of Independence as a document can only be a part of the larger history, a history still unfolding, a "weight of meaning" constantly, challenged, strengthened, and redefined.

The Declaration of Independence established the core principles of our Nation, the United States of America. Our Constitution with the Amendments provide a rule of law for an actual government to accomplish those principles.

True. But, go ask the people in Cuba whether they have human rights their government recognizes. Point being, without governmental authority to recognize the rights people have, or don't have, the existence of human rights, in and of itself, is nothing more than a fart in strong wind.
zef wrote:

Again, without a mechanism that will recognize those naturally endowed rights, your argument equals to no more than pissing into a strong headwind.

Agree in part. A fetus is not considered a person at any point in the pregnancy, but for in the jurisdictions that consider it a person for the sole purpose of Fetal Homicide Laws. Even abortion after viability, if just cause is shown, will not amount to murder.
zef wrote:

It was done to African Slaves. Women did not have a right to vote until the ratification of the 19th Amendment. However, your implied argument has more holes than Swiss cheese. Denial of personhood implies that personhood exists ab initio. And such is not the case with the unborn. The only way the unborn can be deemed a person, legally, is if it dies by the actions of another, when the mother did not want the fetus to die. Any other argument with regard to personhood on a fetus is purely emotional and carries no authority, whatsoever that would trump the personhood status of the mother.

There's always a dimwit who thinks the proverbial "f*ck" off letter to King George is some form of legal authority!!!!

How free is a fetus to do anything? How able is a fetus to pursue happiness? How is a fetus to have life if MOMMY isn't alive? Fetus has what it has because MOMMY gives it to him, even if such is alcohol dependency syndrome. No way around that pal.

You're in the wrong forum. This is the abortion forum, not the birth control forum. But while we are on the subject, abstinence is the most effective method of preventing pregnancy. Just try to control your wanton lusts, and you shouldn't have any problems.

In order for your perspective to be accurate, you'd have to believe creation of mankind was discriminatory. In other words, you'd first have to contend that pregnancy itself is discriminatory (even though it is how human beings were created to procreate).
Of course, creation of mankind was/is not discriminatory.
You're confusion lies in stating "women" are discriminated against. Women and men can smoke. PREGNANT women should not smoke because doing so pollutes another human being's environment (preborn baby in the womb).
"You're confusion lies in stating "women" are discriminated against."

No, I'm saying we cannot pass laws that discriminate against women, even if they are pregnant.

Pregnancy doesn't change their rights as citizens. You are arguing that it should. One result would be you would make it illegal for pregnant women to smoke.

As I understand it, even if a smoker is by him/herself, a 100 yards away from anyone else, smokes, washes his hands, face, brushes his teeth, the toxic smoke is still on his clothes, hair. So, if all things are equal, that person could not approach a pregnant woman or minor without risking a fine. That would be gender equal law - everyone plays by the same rules. Right?

Foo's insensitivity & coldness duly noted.

Even proabort Katie has said she is okay with people calling preborn babies "babies" in the informal context. In laymans terms & colloquially a preborn baby is baby.(e.g., Baby Shower...get over it.)

In the medical context, there was a purpose for applying medical terms (including Latin descriptors) to designate at which stage a human being exists along their human-life spectrum.

You continually try to hijack medical terminology as an excuse to kill innocents. That was never the intent. Dehumanizing human beings is all you've got for a faux argument condoning killing.

Your hyperemotional nature presents itself as passion for the culture of death. You severely lack a functioning emotional system that includes empathy & love. You bounce between hate & apathy for the most innocent human beings among us - those in the womb. You have said so yourself:

FooManSpew: "I dont give two shits about those ZEFS"

If you have a problem with a past post from poster LynneD calling her miscarried babies "babies", talk to Katie about it. Even she realizes getting all wee-weed up over a mother calling her babies "babies" demonstrates an insensitivity that only harms your cause.

But your rights stop at my nose. You can swing your fist whenever or wherever you want. But you can't if it becomes a clear and present danger to my nose.
If you apply the same rights to a fetus as you do to person, the growth of the fetus represents a clear and present danger to the mother and can aborted.
But the fetus is not a person. While the fetus is not a person, it does have some protection under the law.
