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

The statement you are grasping for is not that "defend" and "support" are not mutually exclusive.
What you want to say is that "defend" and "support" are not related or synonymous.
That is the case you are trying to make.
You just don't know how.
As to your case itself, it doesn't matter much that you can't make it, because you lose anyway:
Thesaurus.com
http://thesaurus.com/browse/support
Main Entry: support
Part of Speech: verb
Definition: defend, advocate belief
So, in summary, when you try to equivocate your position by claiming you "support" but do not "defend" the right to choose,...
...you are lying.
You are out of your league.
I said not necessarily.

Sorry, but you don't get to tell me what I mean.

Your desperation is pathetic.

You posted that the universe was nothing but chaos, disorder; I showed you that was not true.

You posted nonsense about DNA; I had to educate you about that.

You posted that "nothing" exists; I provided evidence that you were an idiot, as usual.

You are the deluded liar, fauxkitten.

So are you going to tell me that Kitten has had an abortion?
Or would you like it, if we all just play along while you idiots pretend that you've got a baby killer strung up. and you are about to slap the horse?
Do you need an address to an abortion clinic, or would you just like to stay glued to the seat of that chair, and pretend you give a shit, either way?

You posted the wrong picture, Nano. Surely, you can do better. That was hardly even a swipe, compared to what I have seen you do to others. I feel like I haven't even made it to your real shit list, but maybe this post will help me get there.

Your jealousy is showing. I know you saw the photo, that I posted of myself, and I saw the one that you posted of yourself. What I saw of you, only gave me sympathy for .... well, actually anyone who might often, have to be in your vicinity.

I'm sorry, I didn't take your feelings into account before, I posted my photo, I know that plain ordinary women(slightly off kilter) sometimes have problems with people who have perfect symmetry in their facial features, that and my hair on that day, was incredible. The demand was there and I literally gave over 500 of them away in my own town, and most were autographed.

BTW:I hope you saved it to your PC, If I were to disappear, it could provide you with something to rail against, on those occasions, when there are no men, who will play "slap Nano sideways", with you.

You, like many Christian Right wingers in your church or the discovery institute are against a woman having the freedom of choice and are set on forcing them to carry an unwanted pregnancy. Every pregnancy is a potentially life threatening event. You admitted there would be times you would want your family members to have the option of an abortion.

Even you should be smart enough to put together your hypocrisy on this.

Now that I have again proven you wrong on this, how much money a month do you donate to orphanages and other organizations that help unwanted children?

None right?

So how many unwanted crack babies or fetal alcohol babies have you adopted again? How many hours a month do you volunteer helping unwanted children?

Oh, none right?

Good luck trying to make sense of anything that troll says. He's obsessed with his colon, other men's feet and military drafts that don't even exist any longer. He also gets angry whenever anyone laments the loss of a woman's life through childbirth. He doesn't find the lives of women (fully sentient, born females) valuable enough for a single person to mourn the passing of one of them.

He's deranged, if he's even serious. I'm more inclined to believe he's just an elaborate troll.

You are wrong on every count, Moron.

I have no church, not a christian, and made no definite call on what options I would recommend to family.

You are, thus, also a liar.

Ignorant theist trolls like you don't realise that lying about god is ineffective and dishonest.

When you stop becoming cowards and face the fact that you have no evidence of god and are suffering from a mental illness, science is there to treat you with doctors.

Yes you are a devout Christian by your own admission, a regular church attended by your own admission, you even follow lockstep in every major Christian viewpoint and action here in the US and you admitted right here on this thread there would be times that you would want your female family members to have access to an abortion.

Lol! Had to change your profile picture again Jeff Chase fan? This time to a vague black and white face shot from the 80s?

Want me to dig you up some other Jeff Chase pictures to steal and pretend that's you?

Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!!

Oh fatass how you make me laugh! Now dance for us puppet!

Agreed, agreed and agreed, on all counts. He is basically a waste of human space. I know I wouldn't let a child of mine, get near him.
