In order for one to cease anything, one must have engaged in doing what is being ceased. I have not, nor will I, care whether a woman pollutes her body to the point she gives birth to a drunk with emphysema, unless it directly affects me, or my family. In fact, I don't care whether you will follow in Rock Hudson's steps and die of too many rear end collisions. I care you retain the right to live your life, and make decisions you care to make, as you see fit. It's your life and you, and only you, are accountable for your life.<quoted text>
You can defend her right to act in a manner that may be detrimental to the health of her newborn but that doesn't mean you have to cease caring if she does.
Do you need a barf bag? I can arrange for you to have a lifetime supply delivered to your favorite street corner in the Bronx at no expense to you.The fact that you don't care speaks volumes about you. Someone acting in a manner that could likely result in giving birth to a "drunk with emphysema" is tantamount to child abuse. Yet as long as she retains that right, you couldn't care less.
How much biological research, or studies have you conducted? If your answer is none then answer this; to what extent have you verified the credentials of those who have conducted biological research, or studies related to the cause of birth defects?
Are you going to say that a woman who, against doctor's orders, intentionally fails to take pre-natal vitamis is also acting in a manner that is tantamount to "child abuse[?]"
You and your ilk are notorious for pointing out the bad in others, while forgetting, all along that anytime you point the finger against someone, you have three pointing right back at you.
Deal with your own f*ck ups before you judge those of anyone else. If you can't, or won't do that, then that "speaks volumes [more] about you" than my caring for a woman retaining the right of bodily autonomy, to any extent allowed by law, says about me.
I'll remind you of one unequivocal and indisputable truth; you have no control over the actions of anyone else, but your own. So stop arguing for lost cause. It makes you a bully and an ignorant fool.
