I have only had one pregnancy.
My pregnancy is 17 and being recruited by every NCAA division I school in the south. He's 7'1, 270, and has a 4.0 average. My mom and dad had 2 pregnancies. My little brother is no longer with us. That pregnancy was terminated due to an unfortunate event.
Buck: "Tell me. Is there anything else, anything else at all, that "ends" when a "pregnancy" is ended?"
Bitchner: "What are you babbling about?"
...That says it all.
So how many decades was it that your mother was pregnant with your little brother, before she or others finally terminated the pregnancy?

Oh, were you talking about abortion? Why the fnck didn't you say so? Pregnancy ALSO ends at delivery, you Moron, so your question made no sense.
Not his mothers. You should have seen the tales of his and his little brothers exploits. That boy was probably 200 pounds or more when the pregnancy was terminated. I can just see the two of them drunken fools, dragging Mom's uterus all over god's creation .....

Ah, trying to get your opponents to argue with each other. The last resort of those who cannot refute the arguments. This comes as no surprise from you, Drunk.

Prostitutes are paid professionals to behave as though sparks jump off their ass.

In your case however they are jumping around trying to engage an inch worm....and you thought it was sparks.

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?
Apparently you can be charged with murder if you kill an ape or its fetus if you live in Spain.

Richard Dawkins is also a fan of personhood for apes and their pre-born spawn but gets off on the wholesale murder of human pre-born infants. It seems the world has no shortage of evil, ludicrous lunatics.

My look?

Seriously take some ESL classes. Atheists and non believers make up about 15% of the US population now thanks.

And growing. Oh and there is no leader of the non believer movement. There doesn't need to be either as we are free thinkers.

There are spokesmen and women but that's about it.

Those atheist rallies just keep getting bigger and bigger..... Thoughts on why that is?

You mean personhood by fighting to stop extreme and cruel testing and killing them into extinction. He certainly is not alone in this.

Only to a narrow minded, pompous, bigoted, fool does woman signify anything other than a female human. Your bigotry does not give you the right to kill anybody.

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.
What about the fact that the government implants torture devices in men's bodies without their consent, so that men can be forced under the duress of torture to sacrifice their lives in combat, so that women can be free to tyrannize men, so that women can be free to use men to satisfy their wanton lusts, and kill their babies? What sort of a man willingly sacrifices his life in combat for a society of fascist conniving women, and their legion of naked sycophantic men.

I didn't say that women, aren't human and female. I said that female is not just woman. Female can be infant, child, maid, crone and many other designations. It takes adulthood to be woman.

Those babies that you freaks rape, are not woman they are babies.

And WTF are you running your head about me killing any one for? Oh, wait, yeah rape a baby and I could kill you, but other than the deliberate hurting of a child ... I think I could wait and let the authorities deal with you.

Is it bigotry to think that babies should not ever be raped?

You sidestepped the salient point, GiveMeLiverwurst.
The point raised is this:
How can the same organism be a human being for a murder charge if one person kills it, and not a human being if another person kills it?
The murder charge for Castro is not a crime against the mother - she is still alive, so she was not murdered.
Who was murdered?
( Law.com ) "murder - n. the killing of a human being by a sane person, with intent, malice aforethought"
Now resume your stupid evasions.
It's only murder if the mother wanted the baby to live.

See how that works? It's called hypocrisy.:(
