That could be. Or, it could be that these people have run into the wall of bureaucracy so many times, and are tired of getting a headache trying to fight a system that no longer works. You see the same thing with teachers. They start out enthusiastic, wanting to help people, full of good intentions, and by the time they reach tenure, so many of them are jaded. I remember being shocked at many of the comments I heard from my first husband and his fellow teachers until I realized it came from sheer frustration with the system, a coping mechanism. Sort of like the "gallows humor" among medical students/professionals. It can be frustrating when you can't do any good, no matter how much you want to.
Yeah, I imagine burn-out is a big problem in that profession.

I respect pet life, animal life, and treat animals as they should be treated.
I've had very close pets, that have died and it was a great loss. I was just about to spend over 3000 bucks on a small dog many years ago for an emergency surgery, but the dog died before it took place. I have also killed dogs, who were suffering greatly and had no hope. I've also had to kill a dog that was very good to me, but posed a great threat to my young nieces and nefews. I don't like to kill any animal, but will if truly needed.yet again, there is no comparison to pets and humans, this is just another example of where our world is headed.
The point flew right over your head. You have passed judgement on all "pets", stating that their lives are of lesser value that an human. Your ability to be objective is non-existent. You kill at your discretion and then claim you're "pro-life".

I guess the commandment about not murdering only applies when you want it.

There you go again, referring pregnancy to a disease. Preganancy is how mankind was created to procreate...it's natural and normal.

You get all wee-weed up over Brother Cricket and Sister Tree, but consistently do all you can to dehumanize humans.

You're a fat mess.

Would the child end up having her legs/arms ripped off, skull crushed and beating heart squished?

Wait...

....that's the "solution" you propose for the baby.

I did no such thing, Liar.

"Preganancy is how mankind was created to procreate...it's natural and normal."

And I didn't say otherwise.

"You get all wee-weed up"

Seriously? "wee-weed up"? Grow up, otherwise leave the adults to converse amongst themselves.

"over Brother Cricket and Sister Tree,"

And here is another lie from you. I worship Deity, the same as you do.

"but consistently do all you can to dehumanize humans."

I did no such thing, Liar.

"You're a fat mess."

Yes, I'm fat. So? What has that got to do with this debate, Shallow Liar?

Just remember, I can always lose weight, but YOU will always be an ugly, hate-filled liar inside, no matter your outward appearance.

She didn't "prove you right". In fact, she proved me right. Because I never said they are never synonymous. I said they aren't always.
bHitler: "I said 'a human' and a 'human being' aren't always synonyms"

Katie never said 'a human' and a 'human being' aren't synonyms. In fact, she correctly said they are.

Her smokescreen tangent was her yacking about the the difference between the definition of human being and the philosophy of human being.

You are wrong about the orginal question.

She made an ass out of herself trying to soften your ignorant blow.

You both failed.

Miserably.

No. You're just lying. We're all right here, reading as we go along, and can SEE how you are lying. Which makes YOU the failure.

No she didn't refer to it as a disease. How do you propose society force pregnant women to prenatal care? You force it, who is going to pay for it because society is forcing her to gestate. Oh I know, the government. It will come out of that Mc Donalds check of yours every week.

I've had dogs my whole life. I've got a lovable mutt now that I'd step over you in a heartbeat to save. But even I recognize that dogs, cats, wildebeasts, etc are not equivalent to humans...legally, ethically, or morally. Pro life within the context of the abortion issue has never meant anything other than human life. Clean some of those fecal remnants from your cranium, will you ?

Never. I had few plans that didn 't include my kids and husband. You have a very low regard for people in general. Maybe you should look in a mirror and see what is really bothering you.

Most of the remaining orphanages have children whose parents have died or are very sick and there is no other family. Orphans aren't unwanted kids whose mothers were forced to give birth.

That's not true; women DO have the right to decide whether or not they want to continue a pregnancy. It's just that you don't like the fact that a woman DOES have that right. Too bad.

Not YOUR pregnancy? Not your decision. Deal with it.
