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

I have caught you in multiple lies.
Then you compound them with another lie.
As you just did.
And then you change the subject.
Do you know someone who could help you argue the pro-abort side honestly and intelligently?
I find your intellect insufficient, not to mention your veracity.
I don't lie, so no, you have not "caught" me in any.

YOU lie, however.

And no, I didn't change the subject. The subject was lies.

What's the matter, can't answer my questions?

How many children do you have?

At which university did you teach A&P at the "university level"?

Was that before, or after you were incarcerated as a violent felon?

Or was it during the time you were a ballplayer?

YOU are the liar here.

You're using other words you like don't know the meaning of. I wouldn't question someone else's intelligence when you didn't even know what a pregnancy is.

I know what a pregnancy is.

I also know that using the term as a euphemism in the context of killing a human being is dishonest and cowardly.

I tend to assume you know it, too. But I have overestimated your intelligence before.

Bitner: "You're using other words you like don't know the meaning of."

I am too intelligent to compose such a sentence.

You should have quit with mis-stating anatomical changes.

LOL, you're deflection is pitiful, and is fooling no one.

I did no such thing. An abortion is the termination of a pregnancy, whether spontaneous or induced, by the removal of the products of conception. You DO know what a spontaneous abortion is, don't you, "Professor"?

Now, back to your lies.

Removal of "products of conception"

That's another good one.

You are "products of conception". Your husband is "products of conception".

If he takes a candlestick and bashes your small brain out from your skull, he would be "removing products of conception".

Not the same sanitizing effect it has with killing of little human beings hidden in a dark place, huh?

Why are pro-aborters such meely-mouth cowards?

That is what the medical definition says. It's got nothing to do with me. See, I called it....you DON'T know the medical definition of abortion. I was right.

Pro-aborters certainly exist.

You are one.

Pro-holocaust people also existed. If they claimed only to be "pro-choice" on the matter, it would not be persuasive.

I'm not evading. You just don't want to acknowledge the medical meaning of abortion. You never answered the question, you DO know what a spontaneous abortion is, right, "Professor"?

No, "pro-aborters" do not exist. And I am pro-choice.

Bad comparison. There is a vast difference in trying to kill off an entire race, and one woman making her own decision regarding her own uterus or pregnancy.

WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court is taking a new case on the intersection of religion and government in a dispute over prayers used to open meetings in an upstate New York town.

The justices said Monday they will review an appeals court ruling that held that the town of Greece in suburban Rochester violated the Constitution by opening nearly every meeting over an 11-year span with prayers that stressed Christianity.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the town should have made a greater effort to invite people from other faiths to open its monthly board meetings.
The town says the high court already has upheld prayers at the start of legislative meetings and that private citizens offered invocations of their own choosing.&#8232;

Sorry Buck you can't say you ahem (might) want a life saving option available to your family but the same option not available to others.

Like a typical Christian nutter you are a hypocrite.
Buck Crick wrote:

I admitted I "might" want such, but qualified it by saying I did not know, since I have not been in that situation.

You are a repetitive liar.

The point of such weasel phrases as "aborting pregnancy" is that they are euphemisms to disguise the true nature of the event.

Your resistance to this truth reinforces you being either stupid, or a liar, which we already know is true on both counts.

Is there anyone on board who could support the pro-abort side of this question intelligently?

They have not shown up yet.

It is certainly not you.

Yes...that is correct removing the product of conception which is a medical condition for the host a.k.a woman.

Products of conception often do not survive as Bitner has pointed out repeatedly whether by spontaneous abortion or elective. How do you intend to deal with the spontaneous abortions
since you are so concerned that every conception is equal?

We are the products of conception that the MOTHER elected to burden herself with.

"""If he takes a candlestick and bashes your small brain out from your skull, he would be "removing products of conception"."" ""

If he does such a thing he will be in prison cell hopefully next to you and you will be his bitch.

Hidden in a dark place? You mean a WOMANS uterus??? Why are you misogynists so meely- mouthed
about the anatomy of a woman? Trying to pretend that she has little to do with the situation in order to advance your misogynistic agenda? Pretending or denying pregnancy as a medical condition is paramount to your argument and explains this statement:

The Supreme Court has yet to decide if it will consider widely watched cases about public schools using a church facility to host graduation ceremonies, and the use of prayers to open township board meetings. But an answer could come as soon as today.

The case of Elmbrook School District v. Doe involves a controversy over the rental and use of a church sanctuary to host graduation ceremonies for two public schools.

The court is also considering another case with separation of church and state implications called Town of Greece v. Galloway.

The court could announce some type of action on both cases on Monday morning, based on its conference last Thursday.

Do you mean paper or plastic?

Is that another medical term?

Do you know how and where the term "pro-choice" originated?

I'll give you a hint: It was WAY LATER than the advent of abortion.

I don't care for the German gas chambers.

But I do care about the human beings that were inside it.

In your lame assed attempt to make a point with spontaneous abortions where the living human does not survive, grown human beings also meet with death from natural causes.

That in no way is relevant to deaths of humans through the intentional act of another human.

The former is innocent. The latter is murder.

You are a common moron, and should not try to argue with someone who is obviously in better command of logic and fact, as I am.

You pro-aborters on here need to recruit some talent.

No. Damn, you're dumb.

"Do you know how and where the term "pro-choice" originated?

Given that abortion has been around almost as long as pregnancy has, Duh. What does this make you, Einstein? LOL.

"Why are pro-aborters such spineless cowards."

Probably because they only exist in YOUR imagination.

You earlier said you do not defend that right.

Make up your mind.

And no, you DO NOT support a woman's right to make her own decision regarding her own uterus, and neither does anyone else.

I can give you a list of things a woman can do with her uterus that nobody defends.

You do not know what you support.

If you know, you can't say it.
