It would seem the pro-life movement has acquired an unlikely supporter.

He did not mention natural disasters, he was talking about fetuses that are naturally aborted by the body.

To me that is a natural disaster. I don't blame God when any thing goes wrong in the universe.

Snot, wart, pimple, skin tag and hemorrhoid all are human. But they, like the foetus are not human beings. There are missing components that can result in only one of these having even the possibility of becoming a human being, but until it does, it is a parasite.


You are a piss-faced idiot.

A wart does not have a unique DNA fingerprint of all humans in the universe, or all the organ systems.

That is how an individual human being is determined, not by a piece of another human being's skin.

You are a parasite - a boil on the ass of humanity.

A human being in the womb, like a human being anywhere else, whose life is lost by natural causes, is an event subject to no moral or legal judgement.

Ariel Castro is being charged with murder.

Who did he murder, where were they located, and can you be charged with murder for killing something other than a human being?

The idiots who posts pictures of Jeff Chase and claims that's him repeatedly want to mock the looks of others?

Oh fatboy the irony never ceases with you. Hey for laughs I was wondering.. You like telling the lie about making an NFL team but they threw you off because you were just too tough and scared the other players! Now was that team the Steelers or the Bengals?

You always tell the same story but change which team it supposedly happened with. I mean Steelers Bengals what's the difference right? Those nit picky atheists!

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahah a!

Oh wow you have to stop watching Fox News eh fatass?

Does the fat constrict the blood flow to your brain so much that you cannot tell the difference between a woman going to a doctor and electing to have a safe medical abortion of her choice VS a woman being tied to a bed repeatedly raped and then when pregnant by her rapist, is cruelly starved, repeatedly beaten nearly to death to force a miscarriage?

Your church may not be able to tell the difference Buck but others can.

Faux news can only brainwash conservatives.
Abortion is a difficult decision and not to be left up to retarded republican legislators.

As a Christain, you would be the first to say that there is no innocence. Biblicaly speaking, no child is born innocent, all carry the taint of all previous generations misdeeds. There is no soundness to a Christain arguement, that would claim innocence in the newborn human

I see you have no actual response to my post. No problem, carry on with your farcical agenda.

Once again I don't bring God up when discussing politics. It just confuses the issue. According to secular ethics and the dictionary if someone has done nothing wrong they are innocent.
