<quoted text>No, not if the baby is big enough to burst the fallopian tube. The baby cannot survive. If you would let it go, the tube would burst killing both if the baby survived. The baby always dies. It is not the same as an elective abortion. Do you get a thrill posting about babies dying because of miscarriages and ectopic pregnancies? NO ONE calls an ectopic pregnancy the same as an elective abortion or even uses the word abort. You don't value life.
It doesn't GET big enough if wasn't living and growing still alive, Moron. I never said it could live long, just that it can live long enough to pose a danger to the woman. And I never said it was the same as an elective abortion, but it IS an induced abortion.

You are an idiot.

YOU don't value life, you revere the fetus to the exclusion of all other life.

Personally ..at the juncture ..made a pact with myself ..Not to keep hitting my head or trying to say the EXACT phrasing that pleases,anyone's idea of how I SHOuld say it..
Or argue with mean people over and over who try to hurt other people .
It's not good for my heath or spiritual being.
I can only say what I honesty believe .

Then I'm out for a while,
Wise words. I'm going to take them as a reminder to me to not allow myself to into those disrespectful exchanges, anymore. Thanks :-)

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.
Is migration the same for people?
Immigration?

<quoted text>They have a right to refuse . If you walked into an Amish bakery with short shorts and a tank top, they will refuse to serve you, its their right, they ar practicing their religion. The Amish do that. Nothing is said to them about that. Same thing with insurance, we will not pay for contraception or abortions. We have a right to do that. When a govt forces people to go against their religion and jails them, then we lose our freedom and America as we know it is lost and gone down the tubes..
As I said before: if this business had refused to provide you with a wedding cake because your are Catholic, you'd have sued them, and probably won. However, if they sold ONLY to Catholics, you'd be perfectly fine with it.

Christian businesses are not churches. You religious types lost the legal ability to persecute others in the name of your beliefs, when anti-discrimination laws came into being...which grinds your gears. Christian businesses must abide by the same anti-discrimination laws as all other businesses.

Sorry about your luck - but not very.

A girl that I was friends with years ago claimed that she had an abortion because she "had to". When I asked her why, she said "well, I told him that I drank alcohol and he said that that could potentially affect me or the fetus". That was her excuse that she used to justify killing her UNWANTED child.
Assuming your story of this "girl" is true, it really wasn't any of YOUR business in the first place. Even if she really "didn't want her child," (quoting your words) so what. The girl didn't have to explain or justify HER decision to you at all.

Well Gollyyy! When cpeter told some poster to not have sex or use a condom in order to prevent pregnancy,you thought it was sane advice. So why is "one of the STUPIDEST things anti-choicers say"?.
Because regressive idiots like YOU want ALL people, teens AND adults who don't want any or more kids, to punish themselves with lifetime celibacy.

As far as I'M concerned, THAT is stupid. Hope this helped.

Your lack of ability to refute my claims, either that an end to the legal ability to persecute doesn't constitute persecution, or that anyone has the 'right' to discriminate against others for sexual orientation reasons, is duly noted...
And so is the fact that you are pretty weird.
What mom 'waves [her] breasts over their baby's head to show control? "Hey lookie baby, I have the freedom to feed you or not and there is not a damn thing that you can do about it. If I CHOOSE to feed you, I will...and if not...too bad...you're dead...?" You're a total freak, m'dear.
Yep, she certainly is a total freak IMO, along with her equally freaky buddy Knutter (HuskerDu, or whatever she's calling herself this week).

Thank you, Ocean.
Those on the AC/PL side who preach sex outside of marriage is a mortal sin AND using a condom is a mortal sin shouldn't be bothered by abortion. The woman is "going to hell" whether she has an abortion or not.
You'd think since she's going to hell (and the guy too) the crazy religious AC would overlook the using a condom part.
But noooooooo! They have to become parents on their way to hell.
It's nuts. Mindboggling I tell ya.
You're very welcome, STO. And again, I'm in complete agreement.:-)

You don't see rocks act in such a manner either. Know why ? They can't. Do you think cats or dolphins assess whether or not to act in a manner making environmental law necessary, and subsequently make a conscious and rational decision not to ? Ironically, the ability to consciously exploit the environment and enact laws to mitigate the damage caused by such exploitation are both indicative of man's superiority over other animals.
That would be us, and only us.

<quoted text>Seriously? No one calls an ectopic pregnancy an abortion. You are being played and you don't get it. I am beginning to wonder about you, you are really wishy washy because you don't want to ruffle anyones feathers. PLEASE answer this question, if you were pregnant and diagnosed with cancer, would you get an abortion? Would you say your child's life is more important than your own?
No one is calling the PREGNANCY an abortion, you incredibly stupid thing.

However, the medical procedure used to TERMINATE that ectopic pregnancy IS an abortion.

Deal with it, Harasser.

<quoted text>The Church are the people, not a building. When Christians have businesses, they practice their faith through what they do, they live their faith. So you are saying Muslims have to serve pork to their customers? We have freedom of religion, we have the right to worship and to practice our faith through what we do without being tormented. The couple who ran the bakery were harassed, had death threats etc. If you think that is the way to do things, well , maybe you should move to Syria.
No religion requires anyone to go into business. This is a secular country. Practice your faith ON YOURSELF instead of other people. Why is that so hard for you to get?

If you offer a service to the public, there are things you can and cannot do in providing that service. Discrimination on the basis of age, race, gender, creed, religion, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, is not allowed. Christians included. It's the cost of doing business in America. If YOU don't like it, Syria is thataway....

They are not the chemical weapons which cause disaster and destruction to the Syrian people, but the infighting form Mulsim rebels, and the threat of US strike .

Thess civil violences has destroyed the everyday life of the Syrian people, from schools, to work places to homes, that people feel unsafe that many have to flee because of all the violences doing on both sides.

As It is not possible to have Syria regime to give up, it is required that rebels must stop then, so that people can return to homes and usual living.

The only thing necessary is that rebels give up fighting, so that Syrian people can come back to ordinary activities.

Obama is wrong by keeping on talking on chemical weapons, for that will destroy more lives and cause large unstability of the region, where lots of more people can never return to their ordinary activities again.

It is never abut chemical weapons issue, because by far that does not affect most people.

Instead of having Syrian people come back to their usual lives, Obama's vicious way of siding with rebels to encourage them fighting and inflaming on chemical weapons issue has resulted the destruction of daily routine activities of the Syrian people.

When that is done, go from there, and talk chemical weapons later, as people and their lives in order first.

The stand to have Syrian people to do ordinary lives and activities has not anything to do with chemical weapons. Yet, using chemical weapons indulging has worsen the Syrians to get back to their way of life because Syrians are not killed by sarin gas at all, by far, but will be killed BY US strike by doing chemical weapons issue.

So, they have to give up the chemical weapons issue and Rebels fighting first, as that is the only way of Syrian people can go back home, go to schools, and go back to work as they need those first.
Since Syrian people are not afraid of sarin gas, what is the point of Obama by talking about sarin gas to strike to kill them?

Why the need to feel superior? I suspect you have a VERY deep-seated inferiority complex, mister. Please don't ever adopt a pet or a child.

DROP THE CHEMICAL WEAPONS ISSUE PURSUIT FIRST.
STOP THE FIGHTING AT THE SAME TIME.
GET PEOPLE BACK TO THEIR USUAL AND ORDINARY LIVES AND ACTIVITIES.
THEN after that, THERE ARE LOTS OF TIME TO TALK AND FIGURE OUT CHEMICAL WEAPONS, and for talks of what the Syrian people want in regard to see what rebels have to say.
Otherwise, by using chemical weapons issue, it will never have an end and will have another Iraq bad crisis drama.
