Nah. Wont happen. She did as Perverse and look how badly that went for her. LOL
Nah, she can play this game, and it gets her all the negative attention she's ever wanted.
She ONLY deludes herself.
But you just came up with a new way for her to ignore/deny she's Lynne.
HEY LYNNIEKINS!!
If you and Lynne D were tested, would you share DNA?
LOLOL!
I've asked "Lily" to deny having the same DNA and SS# as LynneD, and she never responds to those posts.

Things that make you go hmmmmm?

When the fetus is expelled alive from the uterus, that is birth.
The sensation of pain requires consciousness; that is impossible to feel pain without a working upper brain--and that doesn't begin until well into the 6th month of gestation.
Yes, the PLM'ers lied. A fetus is incapable of crying--there is no air in the womb. Fetuses can't "move away"from something; their autonomic responses have no intent...and where the hell would they go? The bus station?

I bet fetuses react the moment a sharp object starts to cut into them. If a fetus could talk, it would probably say 'Ow! That hurts! WTF is a sharp object doing in this womb?!'.

Anyway...
NR: "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?
It is common knowledge that by the nature of mankind's creation, women were created to carry offspring within their womb (i.e. pregnancy).

Unless mankind is "re-created," the fact will remain regardless if you like it or not.

Pregnancy is not discrimination. Pregnancy is a normal part of what it is to be human.

The wheels for your line of reasoning have slipped off the tracks. You haven't yet grasped common knowledge.

Tighten it up.

You're embarrassing.

No sharp objects enter a woman's vaginal canal or uterus. Are you crazy?

You have now :->
Actually if you were not so caught up in a black and white mind set you would realize that faith and science actually went hand in hand. Right up until the early part of the 20th century.
When religious groups started to feel that maybe science was not doing them any favors.
You know like proving not only are we not the center of the galaxy, but that in fact we are not even the center of the universe.
The famous Scopes Monkey trial is probably the best examples of why churches should not teach science. And why people of faith look upon certain religious institutions with revulsion.
It is not about what was written thousands of years ago that matter. It is your personal experience with Deity.
The moment when christian churches and Islamist temples decided that was written thousands of years ago should be given more credence. That was religion turning it back on facts and truth. Today when a some one hates science for presenting facts. It shows just how weak a persons convictions and faith truly are for all to see.
Oh and Roe V Wade says it is constitutional for a woman to seek out and get an abortion of she so chooses. That is a fact.


Do you believe that Christian ministers/priests and Muslim clerics have never taken a science course in their lifetime? If they did take science courses, do you believe that all of them failed all those science course(s) they took?

Moreover, would you be willing to go on Jeopardy and compete against a Catholic priest and a Muslim cleric? I think you'll be surprised with how much each of them knows about things/facts.

When I was 4, my goldfish died. My siblings held a funeral. Anyone can do it, for whatever reason.

BTW--there is a difference between a miscarriage and being stillborn.

Whatever they call it.

Would you expect a woman who miscarries at 2 months gestation to mourn the miscarriage no differently than she would the death of her 5 yr old?

Would you think it strange if she didn't mourn the miscarriage?

Yeah, "feminists" support sex-selection abortions.

They put up some sort of mental block that prevents them from seeing the OBVIOUS hypocricy.

They aren't feminists. They are only out for convenience....at any cost....including the lives of innocent baby females.

True feminists first seek to protect the most vulnerable females - those in the womb.

Fake feminists go after and kill the most vulnerable females.

I haven't argued that pregnancy is discrimination. I'm stating that you want laws passed that discriminate against pregnant women.

The example is smoking. You would make it illegal for pregnant women to smoke. You would not make it illegal for fathers-to-be to smoke. That is gender discrimination.

Fifty years later, when a gerbil drops out dead you have a funeral.

<quoted text>It's an editorial piece. I respond with the same comments I've made several times to your own editorial comments. Women have abortions, sometimes. Their reasons are their own. It isn't a requirement that their reasons are approved by anyone, ever. PP may not like a woman's reasons for having an abortion but it should not refuse to perform the abortion on that basis. It's obligation is to make sure the woman has made her decision autonomously.
Why keep the reasons for wanting an abortion a big secret? There's nothing to be ashamed of afterall and everyone around you should be proud that you're a person who always makes good decisions. You're incapable of making a bad decision.

This claim is made by a pro choice femminist

As “pro-choice” feminist author Mara Hvistendahl details in her critically acclaimed book,“Unnatural Selection: Choosing Boys Over Girls, and the Consequences of a World Full of Men”:

Sex selection remains mostly invisible, however, a more pervasive and yet quieter epidemic, observed only by demographers scrutinizing birth registration records years after the fact—and, of course, by the hundreds of millions of people who live or will live in communities where women are scarce.
Hvistendahl concluded that sex-selection worldwide, through a “combination of ultrasound and abortion ... has claimed over 160 million potential women and girls—in Asia alone.” She noted by comparison,“AIDS has claimed an estimated 25 million people worldwide—a mere fraction of the number of missing females.” Yet, sex-selection “remains mostly invisible.”

You must first show that pregnancy is discrimination before saying laws addressing pregnancy (i.e. protecting the baby in the womb) is discrimination.

Pregnancy is how mankind was created to procreate. It's natural and normal.

Proving that pregnancy is an existential discriminatory state won't happen. Our Creator would have to be the one charged with discrimination.(Good luck with that)

Pregancy "is"....it's just as mankind was created for it to be.

You believe the answers I've given are not forthcoming or honest? I supplied a link from Huffington Post showing how Planned Parenthood responded to the "investigation" by liveaction. I showed where they fired the employee who'd been "investigated" or as I see it, set up, because she did not respond appropriately. And I showed another link explaining the sex-selection that does take place in the states is done by those from OTHER countries/cultures. Meaning American women aren't out there using sex-selection to abort female ZEFs.

What more do you need to know other than I don't believe sex-selection is an issue in this country? That the representative crying wolf about it is using circular logic -- as I pointed out the other day?
