Nope,PP is the reason why "rappes" go unreported. Proaborts like you are the reason why they go unreported. You have been known to mock YOUNG girls that were abused and/or accuse rape victims of screaming rape to cover up their "sluttiness".

"you"? Sorry, but we live in the same country. That would be "we". And yes, we would. I never said ANYTHING about people wanting to force a pregnant woman to die. Stop re-wording my position.

This didn't happen because the Dominican Republic is a developing country. It didn't happen due to a lack of medical knowledge. It happened because of the law making abortion entirely illegal. If abortion was entirely illegal here, the same situation would start happening here as well.

I'm sorry you're not bright enough to understand simple logic.

Why did you then?

Thank you for proving my point. YOU are the reason why girls don't report their rapes.

Nope. Quite the opposite.

Got busy, and trying to catch up.
Me, clueless, nope.
I have not posted about abuse.
Still not NN.
All the same, glad you are having a nice day!
And because, I really am a nice person, we may have very different views and opinions, I have enjoyed the banter.
Hope you enjoy your evening. ;-)

Thank you for the biology lesson. I was not discussing race, but personhood.

It's a condition of birth to be a person.
It's a condition of conception to be a human.

To you, there may not be a difference - to me, words have meanings, which, while subtle, are nonetheless important.

Apparently we have many differences of opinion.

I, personally, am okay with that. Pun intended.

The thousands of young women killed here every day with abortion didn't choose to die. Making abortion entirely illegal will save most of them from their senseless deaths at the hands of the brutal tyrants that choose to kill them.

I have friends who always rent, even though they could easily afford to buy. They just like to be able to move when they want, as they're both retired. Since I've known them, nine years, they've moved four times. It DOES have the virtue of not needing to depend on the housing market, for those who don't care about owning.
One of my college instructors sold her house and bought large travel trailer to live in. She and her husband love it. No muss, no fuss:-)

Fighting to remove birth control is counter productive and a step backwards! The United States claims to practice Preventive Medicine, this is not strictly the case. We are the only country in the Western World that actually charge for birth control. Absolutely ludicrous.

I argue that ‘being human’ is a sufficient condition for the application of the label ‘person’ to a living creature – note that a dead human being is no longer alive, therefore they are no longer a person, yet they were once a person. The reason I argue for the case of all humans being persons is that I see many issues with denying personhood to a human being. The reason I argue for all humans being persons is mainly not because of the implications of doing so, but the implications of not doing so. For example…

Abortion is justified by many in that until the foetus has reached a certain stage of development, it is not considered a person, and therefore the termination of an unborn child (before a certain stage of development) is not tantamount to murder. Therefore, if we begin to deny personhood to other human beings we can just as equally justify their killing, or even merely their mistreatment. Imagine living in a society which judged that you had lost your status as a person and therefore could be lawfully killed (not murdered) by a doctor without your consent.

Upon completion of this lesson students will understand that the embryo or fetus is a human person. They may be able to discuss past instances in which people were denied personhood. They may be able to discuss how a choice of vocabulary determines our view of personhood.
Choose any of the following:
1.The denial of the fact that the fetus is a person is a time-honored tactic. Throughout history, we see examples of people being denied their personhood. Have students choose one example and compare it to the current abortion debate. Examples can include: black slaver, women's rights, Jews in Nazi Germany, mentally challenged.
2. The language used by abortionists reflects their desire to deny personhood to the pre-born child. Terms such as "products of conception" mask the human reality of the child in the womb. Discuss with the class the difference between a fetus and a baby, an embryo and a child, etc. Then have students understand that all language will either affirm or deny the personhood and humanity of those around us. Have them track the language they hear throughout the day, counting how many dehumanizing terms they encounter in the hallways, on radio (especially rap songs), in magazines, etc.

Do you really think we are going to adopt all the practices of third world countries? No one for the umpteenth time is wanting to kill pregnant women.

<quoted text>I believe abortion is okay. I also believe if a woman wants an abortion at 35 weeks and 6 days, she should be able to get one legally - if she's that determined not to be a mother, she'd make a terrible one. Further, I believe that there needs to be an unequivocal determination on the part of the people, EITHER that the state has an interest in the fetus which trumps the woman's, OR that abortion is a woman's choice, a legal medical procedure, and enjoys equal protection under the law. And then maybe we can move the hell ON with our lives, and quit worrying about somebody else's abortion.
Yes, I agree.

<quoted text>How many bags of groceries, boxes of diapers, and canisters of formula did you send Natalya Suleman? Now there's a lady who practices what you preach.........I'd think those with a genuine PRO-LIFE stance would STILL be lined up around the block, to volunteer their undying solidarity with someone who not only has the courage of her own convictions, but courage enough to exemplify yours as well.
<quoted text>You may 'know' but you don't seem to 'care'.
<quoted text>One of the many hypocrisies inherent in the pro-life stance of the Republican party. Preventive medicine is a cornerstone of Conservatism. The GOP is against it. Go figure.
So how far off was she in stating we have 4,000 abortions a day?
The name went over my head,if you would have said Octomom,I wouldn't have had to look the name up,uh,thanks.
While I agree Octomom,is missing a few aces in the deck. Octomom chose to have her children,doesn't matter if she had one or twenty,you don't back her choice? Instead of getting into a display of stupidity over this,who should do what and all. I would think the doctor should foot the bill for these kids,he's as dingy as she is.
