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

By the way, there is NOTHING in our Constitution that would make a murderer out of anyone who kills a fetus.
I think the same can be said for the bible.

Lol! Hey I wonder if he would let women force him to eat salads for 9 months? I bet he would be all about individual choice rights then!

Dawkins does not speak for atheists, he speaks for himself.

Only an creationist twerp would believe that Dawkins was the "prophet" of atheism.

You are silent of proof of god, yet here you are lying about it to intelligent atheists.

"You really nailed me on that fetus-not-a-human-being thing."

What I nailed, is that whether or not a fetus is a "human being" is a matter of opinion.

"And you so enlightened me on being able to kill people not born here or naturalized."

Not what I said. In fact, I said just the opposite.

"Quite brilliant."

Unlike you, obviously.

"Tell me, Master, does the guy in Texas convicted of murder for killing a fetus which is regarded as a human being live under the U.S. Constitution, or that of some other country?"

What are you babbling about?

"You're out of your league, and I over-estimated you."

Nah, you're just pissed that you got bested by a woman. It's quite amusing, actually, how you reacted when you found out the person you'd just praised as being "good" turned out to be female.

"Stick to debating your ladies bridge club."

Case in point.

"Buck plays in the big leagues."

"Buck" is a self-professed washed up, drunk felon, who can't remember what's actually been said to him half the time. If that's "the big leagues", he can keep it.

That's true. The bible says nothing about a woman choosing to end her own pregnancy.

Actually, Bitchner, it does.

You suck at arguing human law. I recommend you don't venture into arguing biblical issues.

If I choose to bother, I can embarass you again.

No, it does not. Feel free to try to prove otherwise.

Your comment illustrates two things about the dishonesty of liberals like you.

1. You will instinctively speak of abortion matters exclusively in terms of the mother, i.e., "a pregnancy", rather than an unborn child, or human, or other term, even though what is being "ended" is that very thing. It's a dead giveaway of deception.

2. You can make vastly broad extrapolations for a text to allow that includes a "right" when the desire is to find a right that empowers you, like the right to murder a human being in the womb. But interpret a text in the narrowest of narrow sense, when it might hold the theoretical potential to impede your power, as in the bible saying you can't kill that human being whom you desire the power to rid yourself of.

For liberals on abortion, it is entirely about power.

You couldn't care less about rights and wrongs.

I know you sniveling degenerate scum like the back of my hand.

You are the sniveling, degenerate scum, by your own admission.

Guess what? I'm ALSO not a liberal.

Of course, we both know that this is just your lame attempt at deflection. You can't prove the bible says anything against a woman choosing to end her own pregnancy.

LOL, you're pathetic.

Can we rely on your word on it, just like we could rely on your word that killing a fetus could not get you convicted for murdering a human being?

You can't argue against video evidence. I've seen the video. The planned parenthood lobbyist clearly argues that if a baby survives an abortion whether or not it should receive care should be up to the mother, her doctor, and her family.

It's not the trip, it's the destination. Birth.
Being born does't lead to some advanced reasoning capacity, or any significant physical changes in the baby. It seems kind of silly to me that when someone moves a foot in one direction that all of a sudden that makes them a person.

Women have gotten me to eat lots of things.

Some couldn't even wait long enough to de-thong.

I don't even think some of those garments were the edible type.
