We have to pay more taxes so he can give out more food stamps because he is going to add more tax on the people who own businesses which will make the employer not able to pay his employees. And that corn thing? You know the fungus? That problem will make your groceries cost a whole lot more.
You must have just emigrated from the South Seas and I doubt that you are as sexy as you were as a young girl.. But you need more education.
Food Stamps are TRADED at the store for food. It's the store owner who winds up with the money. In poor neighborhoods "No food stamps" means "No business" for store owners.
Romney concern for small business doesn't include small store owners.

Let's petition the courts to sterilize all women that are beyond childbearing years because they can't reproduce and watch em come crawling out of the woodwork declaring an infringement on their right to a non-reproductive life.

It really seems like the two sides speak different languages since no common vocabulary as been agreed upon.
A moment ago, I deleted a response to you regarding *Triple L's claim it seemed like gestational age was the measurement [for viability]. In a link provided today, it states weight is the measurement physicians use for assessing viability. Dropped from 600 grams to 500 grams (iirc), this weight usually corresponds with the gestational age about 22-24 weeks. It's a distinction important to physicians, like proper terminology, so it's important to me. But I'm wondering if it would become a war of words rather than an interesting factor in determining viability.
*Triple L is the name I've given her to encompass her prior SNs with her current SN.
I didn't know they used weight for assessing viability. I actually thought it was mostly lung functioning capability. It does make sense that there would be more than one criteria.

ROFLMAO Frighteningly, this actually makes sense and is dead on!
Foo! Off topic. Finished "My Sister's Keeper" and "The Horse Whisperer". Both bittersweet reads. What else do you recommend? You have now become my "go to" person for reading recommendations.

In other news on this thread - viability is still being debated and Obama is heckbent on making silver spooners pay their due in taxes. Romney, in the mean time has built his platform on ... okay, what exactly are his plans? IDK.

Better yet, let's push for legislation that states that MEN can only have sex for procreation purposes, and it MUST be within the confines of a marriage.

This is *precisely* what the religious right is pushing for so, by golly, let's enforce it.

No more mistresses, hookers, male prostitutes for these old boys. Limit them to sex to create children, then lop em off.

Think they'll go for it?

<quoted text>The legal definition of "viable" as it stands now is Roe v Wade's, and it did include references to medical definitions, which included "albeit by artificial aide". What is relivent in changing that would be challenges to it findings on such grounds to over turn that part, but until that part is successfully challenged than it is what matter in abortion law. Roe v Wade erred on the side of caution and set "viability" at the earliest known possibility for the time,(1973), which was 24 weeks at that time. It didn't set a rigid time in the pregnancy for viability, it was about ensuring that any possible "viable" fetus could be protected by a State if it wished to do so.
For the law yes, there has to be some defined guideline. But every situation will still be different. Babies will still live or die when born prematurely at different times. The babies themselves don't go by what's in RvW.

And I know what I know, so YOU can just deal with THAT.

You called me a liar and stated that I said you claimed to be an expert, which I did not say at all.

That proves to me that you're not so good at comprehending what read.

Looks to me like you do see yourself as an expert Miss Know-it-all. I don't see you as knowing any more than anyone else on this matter. We ALL have our own personal experiences to draw on and your experience isn't any more accurate or correct than mine or anyone else's no matter what you may want to think.

I'm going to go by what *I* know. I don't give a chit what YOU say you know.

If I remember correctly, might have been Pennsylvania, could have been Missouri tried to pass an Act requiring testing for viability before an abortion could be done in the 20th week or beyond. The SC ruled it unconstitutional. Measuring weight and size by ultrasound or "guessing" the gestational age according to the last menstrual cycle is not reliable because it's going to vary from woman to woman. Amnio is the only test I know of that can measure lung function and you just can't go sticking big needles in a woman's belly to find out without their consent. Besides, amnio is dangerous to the woman.

And then there's the posters that think there religious leaders should determine medical issues, even for peoples not associated with their organization. No, thank you.
