I think you must be obese, hate yourself because of it, and take your feelings out on others.

I am sure everything in the world will be o.k...I have been kicked off
topix for what I say, so I do not know what to say, with these super
smart computers. I said I would blog to you until I die, I am 71 years
old, now, or until the world ends. Something has to happen soon, as I
am feeling my age. We are being told, on the internet, about space
aliens, but you do not hear anything from the churches or our
governments. I read today, on the internet, where the space ships are
so big they cannot come near earth as they would interfere with
earth communications....so they send shuttles to the earth`s atmosphere and that is what people see. I am going to post this and get on another forum. Love, el cid 777

Funny how you waddle around calling others "liars."

There was nothing I said that wasn't true.

Forcing women/girls against their will to give birth would be keeping them in line, don't you think?
Most who dare to refer to themselves as pro-choice,agree with restricting a womans potential choice to electively abort after their legal given time frame. They all (including you if you are one of them) are forcing women to gestate against their will. Tell me, is it because they are attempting to keep women in line too?

<quoted text>Thanks for setting sASSy straight there, Husky, and admitting that you did indeed post that horrific nonsense about demons raping another poster, and her grandchildren,
You posted your demon-rape scenario to Nana, not me...I don't even HAVE grandkids.
Jesus thinks what you say on here is "worse", missy. Clean up your act.
Next....
No no no not so fast missy. You accused knit of something else. You said that knit *wished* that demons would rape her grands. Even that knucklehead John (oopsy, did I just say that out loud) was going to show me proof of her saying that. BOTH of you lied .

An apology is in order. Now get to it!

<quoted text>Insisting that a virus' primary functions are negative, is pretty self-centered, fella. A virus' primary function is to survive. Viruses have evolved by attaching themselves to other living things, and finding optimal hosts...that's a survival mechanism, not a personal vendetta.
Just so you know....
Yet, oddly enough, we seem to have no qualms against the summary execution of viruses...go figure.
Their primary functions are negative to their host.

And I see like pete you just gloss over the "viruses are not developing human lives" fact........oddly enough.

Oh yeah, you didn't answer this the first few times it was mentioned.
If you're so sure on what RvW states, why don't you realize that if woman's life or health is at stake, she may still legally and safely abort beyond viability?
What don't you seem to understand about that?
She understands it perfectly. We all do. What is wrong with you ? Post viability a woman can still abort if her health or life is at risk. We get it.
However, in the absence of a health or life risk RvW says states can restrict and even prohibit abortion. In such cases she would be forced to gestate. And you agree with that.
You support the right to abortion in circumstances YOU deem appropriate.

Nosy parker.

In that way, no woman is ever "...forced(legally) to gestate against her will when she might want to kill her developing baby."
So stop accusing me of something you fail to understand. Your false accusations and blatant lie fall flat.
There is nothing false about the fact that you support restrictions on abortion post-viability. And that is all she said. What don't you seem to understand about that ?

Hey, Stupid Sassy, RvW is not a law, and it doesn't restrict a woman's choice.
Stop being so idiotic.
Tell Morgana the same thing. She seems to think it's law also.....

Morgana: "Katie agreeing with RvW is justified. RvW is just and reasonable law."

RvW does not say anything about regulating the funding.
He didn't say it did. All he said was RvW allows states to regulate abortion.
You're like pete, you lie about what people say and then fabricate arguments with them about things that they've never said.

I usually skirt right over irrelevancies. Doesn't matter if it's a virus, a tumor, an earwig, or a fetus, a woman doesn't have to sustain it against her will (although with viruses, the choice isn't always possible.)
Now apologize for being ignorant.

The dumbbell spends multiple posts trying ( and failing ) to explain how a virus is like a fetus, then when he's shown how stupid such a comparison is he says......errr....doesn't matter, it's irrelevant anyway.

Try again. He said and I quote, "In theory, the state may act to ensure the safety of the viable fetus." You tend to ignore what is written here if you don't like what is said. It seems that you and Cpeter see R v W differently.

If I faced that very scenario once already, as I explained, then why would facing that scenario in the future, hypothetically, be any different? I faced it in reality, and told you what I did, and now you want me to explain what I would do in the future if the same thing that I already faced in reality were to happen...in the future? Huh?
Wrong. It was not the same scenario. I changed the scenario drastically. I added that you were NOT excited about the prospect of raising a child ( which you said was the reason you went ahead with your other pregnancy even though you weren't emotionally or financially ready). And I also added that in addition to being financially and emotionally unprepared, you were NOT physically able to raise another child. If all these factors came into play and, in short, there was not ONE single solitary positive aspect for you having another child, would abortion ever be a consideration for you ? And if not, why ?

I support women's civil rights to personal privacy and bodily autonomy. That means I support their rights to make their own determinations. None of you understands a thing when you refuse to accept that little tidbit. I don't determine what instances call for termination prior to term and which do not. A physician would make that call and it'd be between him/her and the patient. Therefore, your attempts at trying to label me a nosy parker like you are futile and false.

The doctrine of state's interest encompasses the state's rights to ensure public safety. Since abortion in the third trimester entails as much danger to the woman as childbirth, it becomes a matter of regulating medical risk. In theory, the state may act to ensure the safety of the viable fetus; however, it may not interfere with abortions performed for medical reasons.
<quoted text>
No stupid. There is no THEORY about it at all. It's FACT. In their interest to protect fetal life and in the absence of a health or life risk to the mother, the state may act to to restrict or even prohibit abortion in the 3rd trimester.
