What should we legislate?
All laws have some form of moral background.
I just think important issues should be left for the people to decide, as it is anywhere in the us.
Each town has a "standard "in which we live by, so why was such an important subject left up to a handful of judges to decide?
A citizen's civil rights are not left to popular vote. That is the "tyranny of the majority" that the founders were attempting to avoid.

NAP, Bitner and others can believe anything they want. The fact is your link spelled out in great detail why human beings are superior to other animal life forms.

No they didn't blow them out of the water, they EXPLODED them out of the water. And don't apologize. You have nothing to be sorry for.
You did excellent work...even if you still don't realize it
You are silly. Eh, it's your perspective, you're welcome to it. Am sure glad I have a better understanding of various belief systems, how parts are similar and other parts differ.

I liked what Cptr said. Birds can fly on their own volition. Does that make 'em superior to humans? He gets it.

Man can fly also. And his reasoning and ability to construct a machine to enable him to overcome the instinctive physical ability that nature and evolution did not provide him with is precisely what illustrates his superiority.
What bird do you know of that can construct a 747 ?
You're a clown.
You just don't get it. But you're welcome to your perspective. All those people attempting to fly on their own volition all go SPLAT! Silly!

So why is a person who murders a pregnant woman charged with killing two?
double standard?

Why is it that your side of this issue never understands the fetal homicide laws?

They don't exist in every state. In those where they DO exist, they kick in at different gestational points, and only apply during the commission of another crime, AND they violate the woman's what?......CIVIL RIGHTS. Where they SAY "murder" (which not all do), that is at the insistence of a politician who was catering to an anti-choice group that was trying to get at abortion through the "backdoor".

These things have been pointed out many, many, many, many times before.

Funny, since you don't get 'hung up' on omniscient or eternal, that the lack thereof is what makes Taoism a 'non-starter' for you.
What I don't get hung up on is trying to explain to non believers how God can be both omniscient and allow free will.

Deities is the non starter.

You're right, there are more than a few women who hold these backward extremist views, Phyllis Schlafly being one of the worst. Then there are the idiots like Michele Bachmann, Sarah Palin, and all the silly women in that group Concerned Women For America as well. If they had THEIR way, women wouldn't have advanced beyond the 1950's.
These regressive women are just as bad as the anti-suffragists of the 19th century who kept insisting "women don't want the vote," as if they spoke for ALL women. I find it unbelievable that there are so many who would VOTE for those idiots, regardless of their gender.
Motherhood: OPTIONAL, not required.
How can you critize such accomplished women who represent the great success of feminism? I would argue that these women and thousands more have found a way to have fullfilling successful, contributing lives without promoting killing unborn babies.
You just don't want to believe it is possible.

That's exactly right.

Their claim that conservative women want to go back to the last century hardly holds water when we have daughters and granddaughters who are either in college or have established careers.

Rosesz, I respect your opinion and I know you are sincere and a good person.

Whatever you say in defense of criminalizing abortion, the fact remains that you advocate the removal of a woman's right to make the decision of continuing or not continuing a pregnancy. You can write about empowering your daughters, all day long, but you still want to take that power from them , simply because you do not personally approve of abortion. Please be honest about that.

"Their", Witless? Really? I didn't women, and I didn't say ALL, did I, Witless One?

For me it is a basic truth. I have read a lot about Jesus and I am convinced that He spoke the truth about God and eternity.

i have yet to find a reason to distrust that belief.

He/she doesn't get it because it is too silly to get. No only can man fly but he can fly anywhere he wants. Birds on the other hand only go north and south and always to the same place unless the get lost.

Bitner is going to tell me that she sees birds flying in circles and not north and south so let me explain for her. I'm talking long trips called migration.

I call BS.
This idea that women use abortion as birth control is downright insulting and silly.
You think those women want to have abortions? How sympathetic of you.
I agree, that argument deserves nothing but a laugh at it's utter stupidity. Moreover, what any one woman does with her right to medical autonomy isn't anyone's business but her own.

I believe I was responding to something Rose said that I agreed with. Is that not allowed here?
