Richard Dawkins tweets on abortion: ‘any fetus is less human than an adult pig’

Mar 16, 2013 Full story: freerepublic.com 1,829

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.

Sorry troll, but I have to factually prove you wrong yet again.

The reason they are fighting for them is due to them being endangered. I suppose you right wing nutters have trouble comprehending that.

So if your daughter was raped by a diseased crack addict from Haiti right when she was about to start college you would force her to carry this rape pregnancy out and give birth, putting her life at risk?

If your son was raped and murdered by crack dealers from Los Angeles, while in prison on drug charges. Would you still force people to obtain the drugs they need from dangerous back alley drug deals? Would you still put crack dealers in prison so they can be free to rape and murder your son?

Reading comprehension problems. The point being made was safe legal life safing abortion as oppose to back alley abortions. Comprende?

Catholic hospitals which are at present taking on many of the public hospitals do not believe in abortion to save the mothers life. They prefer she dies. Pay attention.

"She consented in the murder of an unborn child," says the Rev. John Ehrich, the medical ethics director for the Diocese of Phoenix. "There are some situations where the mother may in fact die along with her child. But and this is the Catholic perspective you can't do evil to bring about good. The end does not justify the means."

This was the case of an 11 week pregnancy.

I can provide you with more links to the male hierarchy CC that prefers a woman/girl dies. Just let me know if you would like to read further and I will be happy to assist you.

Abortion is death. Abortion kills people. Most of the people killed with abortion are women. All of the people killed with abortion are babies. You kill women while they are babies. That is what abortion is. That is what abortion does.
woman
noun
1. the female human being ( distinguished from man ).
A woman is a female human.
True, it is a sexist, genocidal tool as it is applied in Third World nations. There is already a shortage of brides for men in China. Now many have to use prostitutes where, except for the single-child law being enacted, these same Chinese men would now have women to love and share their lives with.

Every pregnancy is a potential death sentence for a woman. If the pregnancy is unwanted why have her gamble her life on it?

You didn't answer I noticed if your daughter at an important juncture in he life was raped and impregnated by shady individual would you expect her to carry and give birth? Would you want her to go through the 9 months of pain and suffering and very possibly dying to give birth to a crack head's baby? Not to mention the thousands of dollars she would be required to pay in the process?

You do understand that you should clean your own house first, don't you? Those millions of abortions are performed on more Christian women, than any other grouping. It's too bad for you that it works out that way, but look at the world. Abortion and Christainity go hand in hand, and every Republican politician would shit themselves back peddling, if they actually got close to being able to make abortion illegal.
Maybe the death cult is your own.

Every abortion is a potential death sentence for women. Or woman if the baby is male. Every abortion is a death sentence for someone. It doesn't matter if the baby is unwanted, because even unwanted people have the right to life. Our lives should not depend upon whether some nihilistic hatemongering tyrants wants us or not.

Good point. If women were only adult females(as the bigoted hatemongers would like us to believe), how could you attribute the shortage of brides in China to abortion? Even though the fact of the matter is that gender selective abortion is directly responsible for the shortage of brides in China.

China is just exactly LIKE YOU...they value men over women and they force women into abortion and females are aborted because they value men. You are the flip side of China...no choice for women. You would love it there...you should move.

We know, you are a runner. You make a commitment to a woman and a marriage, then when real responsibility(of your own making) shows up, old Crick high tails. Show us what a man is Crick, have you ever met one.

Ultimately, everyone's life depended on it anyway. All you are doing is griping about one form of such an exercise in power, in other words, being a hypocrite.

I thought you fascists preferred death camps, rather than forcing people to move away. How does forcing men and only men to die in combat "value men over women", which is what americans do. The Chinese force women into abortions because the chinese have absolutely no regard for the life of people in the womb which "is just exactly LIKE YOU".

Not everyone is a nihilistic hatemongering tyrant. Not all of us are your victims.
