Do you have an address to which I can send my used menstrual pads, for your monthly 'miscarriage inspection' pal?
Oh that conclusion makes as much sense as dehydrated water, and I have a much better suggestion for your used pads, stuff them in your pie hole and maybe you will at least lessen the idiocy you are displaying.

Yes, and it seems the world is sooo bad, that many are just having sex, and if a pregnancy takes place, they simply get it took care of, since it would most likely put a damper on their future sex :(
As soon as I quit responding to one idiot, another one pops up.

Are you really that stupid? Sex is in no way relative to the condition of the world. Haven't you seen pictures of third world countries? People's ribs are sticking out, they are starving, they are covered with flies, and drinking muddy water. Yet, there are dozens of little kids running around their feet. Kids that they damn sure didn't need.

Add "pregnant women" to the less valued category and fetuses to the magificent oak, and you have the PLM mindset. I find it easier to just take it case by case,

Cptr, this quote was in the post to which you responded.
"Oak trees and acorns are not equally valuable," write Robert George and Patrick Lee, "because the basis for their value is not WHAT they are but precisely those accidental [not substantive] characteristics by which oak trees differ from acorns. We value the ugly, decaying oak tree less than the magnificent, still flourishing one; and we value the mature, magnificent oak more than the small, still growing one. But we would never say the same about human beings."
Do you see what I see? Humans "value the ugly, decaying [elderly, poor, black, brown, yellow, deemed different, etc.,] less than the magnificent, still flourishing one[wealthy, good looking, smart, successful, young, nubile, etc.,] one; and we value the mature, magnificent [fill in the blank] more than the small, still growing one. And we do this to other human beings [even if we don't say or admit it] all the fckn time." All anyone needs to do is pick up a newspaper or watch the national news to verify.

How true!
as I read this I pictured a woman never slowing down when she sees a person walking across the street, but not in the cross walk, and runs right over them -killing them. Then says to herself I HAD THE "RIGHT" OF WAY.
That's sad enough, but what's worse, is the woman knew the person walking, and it was her child!
You would say, "God gave me the right of way."

Those foster kids, most of the time are not adoptable. Most have parents and families and haven't been taken away permanently. When and if they do become available many are adopted by their foster families. God bless the people.</QUOTE> Did you not see this sentence?
"According to Adopt America there are 130,000 children in the U.S. foster care system WAITING TO BE ADOPTED."
[QUOTE who="Ink"]<quoted text>Why should a child have to be either aborted or dumped? There are so many other options.</QUOTE>What other options do you mean? An unwanted child is either aborted or put up for adoption. Am I missing something?
[QUOTE who="Ink"]<quoted text>I assume you wanted to have your own babies and did, so I think it is disengenuious to berate other folks who want the same, a baby.
You are not using your reading comp skills. I do have two kids, and both were planned. What does that have to with UNWANTED kids? If anybody wants to have a family that's their right. I'm just saying that if a woman gets pregnant and does NOT want the child it would be more humane to abort it in the first month than "dump" it on child services where it may not get adopted.
You have to admit, the system if full of kids who will never be adopted.

Really?? This link is "pro abort dogma"?
Debating and commenting on various points becomes "pro abort dogma" to you and you wonder why people call you an extremist??
I see now that you will go to any lengths to support your position,, including the misrepresentation of what a website, you don't agree with or approve of, says. Then you tell us that this website (which you feel like callling dogma) is what we follow? That is extreme.
I asked Bit what she would disagree with and I'll ask you too.

Okay, "makes the decision" to kill the child. What's different?
Nope. Makes the decision to end the pregnancy.

Get back to me when you can be honest enough to respond to what I'm really saying, instead of spinning it to suit, okay Witless?

I never claimed that you don't have free will. I just poinited out abuse of free will has consequences - in this life, and eternally.
You have a God-given right not to believe in God.
You will be one of those people who lived a life filled with debauchery and exhibit pathetic deathbed behavior. All mouthy and tough until the reality of death gets real.
Have it your way.
Good luck with that....

I answered the first two points but I guess I messed it up because it didn't break it down this time. Just read the quoted portion to your post above.

Simply because something has entered the lexicon in error, does not make it less wrong. A perfect example would be how the definition of "literally" now includes the exact opposite, "figuratively", hence you FAIL.

A human toe is not a human being. A DNA test determines genetic origin, not whether it came from a viable entity.

As I've asked multiple times before, if the answer can be "no" please provide a legitimate site to support your contention.
Remember, you denied pulling your statement from your arse. So, show us your source that corroborates your claim that "a human" (noun) and "a human being" are not synonyms.
TIA.
