It would seem the pro-life movement has acquired an unlikely supporter. On Wednesday, Richard Dawkins, a vocal proponent of atheism and the author of The God Delusion, posted a provocative tweet about abortion: With respect to those meanings of "human" that are relevant to the morality of abortion, any fetus is less human than an adult pig.

Oh. I'm sorry. I got the impression somehow you were defending a woman's right to terminate a pregnancy.
But you were not defending anything.
I don't know where I got that. Must be from too many years behind bars, or being hit in the head all those times with cop sticks and tased.
Or when I lifted that house boat and it fell on me.
Don't know. But I sure misjudged you. You weren't defending anything.
I support a woman's right to choose. It's not up to me to defend, or condemn, her choice. It's no one's business, but hers.

But you favor that law.
The question is how you favor law that obligates a man for an act leading to conception, but not a woman?
You want law to obligate him, but you want law not to obligate her.
Man copulates = obligation, no choice.
Woman copulates = no obligation except by choice.
I don't believe I've stated a preference for child support laws. Why do lie so much?

Again, whatever you have to tell yourself to soothe your damaged male ego.

By the way, my husband's laughing his ass off at you as I type.

Is he? Well, I like man with a sense of humor.

Did I ever tell you about the time my brother and I were at the bowling alley drunk and a fight broke out?

Right then, the power went off. It was pitch dark in there, seeing as how the building had no windows.

People were rolling around and punchin' and scratchin'.

Just when the lights came on, you won't believe what I saw.

My brother had a bowling ball under one arm, with his fingers on the other hand in two of the holes.

He was hollering, "I'll gouge your eyes out, you bald-headed sonuvabitch!"

I'm trying to stop.

I already quit that lie where I was saying you defended a woman's right to terminate a pregnancy.

Thanks for settin' me straight on that.

You don't defend a woman's right to choose, and you don't defend child support laws.

I have it straight now. I'll try to remember.

Cam't imagine where I got that.

You probably didn't know I was given electroshock and experimental anti-psychotic drugs for 12 months. They closed that place down when my case was discovered.

But I had lockjaw and night vision like a cat for 6 months.

I had recurring dreams that I lived in a cave married to a female Bigfoot.

I stuck an EPA investigator in the ass with a 5-prong pitchfork thinkin' it was that dream and he was the female Bigfoot.

Turned out he was real. Actually, it was only 4 prongs that stuck him.

I went in the hole with one prong.

We may have to start charging you if you don't improve your English. Did you look into those ESL classes I linked for you?

Skeptic is in London, I am in the US.

I never sign out of this screen name whereas you have a dozen screen names at least. Did you ever figure out what an adage was? Or what secular means?

If there were such a thing as a "right to choose". Which there isn't. Why should only women have that right?

Lie and whine - that's all you creationists can do really. Make a cult around that instead of claiming to be something noble.

How did your prison marriage work out for you? Still keeping in touch?

Man copulates = obligation, no choice.
Woman copulates = no obligation except by choice.
Man hardens, spews, shrivels up = his only contribution in the reproductive process = he has no say in a WOMANS pregnancy.

In pregnancy or abortion a woman pays physically either way. If she aborts, no obligation required of the man, if she doesn't then the man is still not required to do anything pertaining to the pregnancy. After birth the man will be required as she to support the child.

Men even in marriage walk or prance away from that one and ONLY obligation. A pregnant woman still full fills a physical obligation one way or the other. Now, rectify that prison pansy ass.

Most right wing conservatives have this experience.

As a tax payer the only thing that upsets me is the treatment obviously did not work.

I have always understood that female human fetus and female human embryo are women. With the same rights as any other woman of any other size.
Women, really? "Woman" signifies adulthood, maturation, and you see the foetus as woman? Well now, is it the same for male babies, are they men? Do they vote, drive cars, and rape babies?
