A woman getting an abortion pre-1973 is breaking the law.
Master of the obvious. We know.( Not in all states, by the way )
A woman protesting against the law is not breaking the law. She is exercising her right to work to change an existing law.
Again.....obvious.

The law was in fact changed, by SCOTUS. What about this don't you get?
Not a thing. Except for one minor thing. None of this has anything to do with my original point, which was....

You said you defended a woman's freedom to choose WITHIN THE LAW. Then you went on to question how anyone could have an argument with such a laudable creed. Yet the fact is you would have NOT professed to live by such a laudable creed pre-1973. In fact, "I" could have said that I lived by such a creed prior to 1973....and you would have had a major argument with it. THAT was the point.
You had two chances to answer and you failed. You no longer have to.........I answered for you.
I never said a fetus is not alive,
You implied it did not meet some criteria for being considered to be alive. Then went on to say that it did not meet the definition of "life".....which brings us back to the original point. The fetus is no doubt a live and developing human. It is the PC that have established the subjectively chosen point at which that life is worth anything or is worthy of protection. How sanctimoniously and self righteously in violation of the fundamental right to life can you be that you would consider the right to privacy as the basis for dictating when a human life should be worthy of protection ?

or a developing human. A z/e/f does not have rights. A woman has rights. A born baby has rights.
To give the z/e/f rights would then revoke rights from women. A woman is a born human being, a z/e/f is not born yet.
The civil rights of the born are already restricted in cases where innocent human life is at stake.

I have to respectfully disagree. Abortion would certainly be an issue, because there are women that wouldn't want to have their ZEF transplanted. It would open another option, but it wouldn't eliminate many of the issues themselves.
Point taken.

<quoted text>Wouldn't Jesus be "politically corect" today" Wasn't he crucified for being a rebel?
Yes, he definitely was considered a rebel during his day. But if you go back and read some of the scriptures in the four gospels of the New Testament you will find he was rebelling against the political correctness perpetrated by the Jewish religious leaders of his day.

They, too, wanted to silence the opposition.

Well, see, that's just not true. Women have been equal on the playing field for a fairly long time now. A few have even made a run for the presidency and more than a few are in positions of leadership in every aspect of government. Women are respected as much as men in the medical field which didn't use to be the case decades ago. Women are just as athletic and some even more so than men in the sports arena. A few have flown into space and quite a few run big corporations.
This president wants you to believe something that is not true for no other purpose than to cause derisiveness and to create something that simply doesn't exist.
He is actually diminishing the massive strides made in women's rights over the past decades by pretending it never happened.
So the question is why would he do this? The women's movement was a hard fought victory and a thing of the past. No one has been complaining or is even complaining now. Except this president.
Once again, you're full of crap. If you think nobody has been or IS complaining, you're either blind or stupid. Personally, I vote for a bit of both. The "glass ceiling" very much still exists. Women very much still make less than men for the same jobs. There's men that want to control women's medical decisions, while dont you DARE challange theirs.

Get real sister. Maybe YOU are okay with the status quo, but normal women are not.

Internet stalker? It's funny how you make up stories. You have a real talent for that. You don't fool me, though.

Young and naive? You are still naive.

It wasn't you because you don't live in Indianapolis. Gee, no brainer. How would you possibly know someone was trying to find you? Rolling eyes and shaking head.

Paranoid much?

Sandy packed more of a wallop, personally speaking. She was quite a horror. Meanwhile this one, Charlotte or Nemo (why two names?) was only a big white messy inconvenience. Price we pay for living in New England.
(I've had a couple of years to study Lily's posting manner. She reminds me of one of the Three Mistakes. Must be right, no matter what. Makes me wonder what happened to the Lily child that turned her into such a prideful and generally unpleasant adult. I think she's more to be pitied and not despised.)
Personally, I thought Charlotte was a better name. Nemo is too nautical and better suited for a hurricane.

What is sad about Lily is she seems to have no idea just how obnoxious she is, and I sincerely hope she isn't this unpleasant IRL. She has the abrasive personality of a defiant toddler.

You're oh so humble when it comes to religion, aren't you? Spare us your bull.
Just know where you're coming from.

Talking about saving grace is more like excitement than boasting. Similar to someone offering a cure for a disease that they, themselves, were cured of. Denial of having the disease doesn't mean offering a cure anyway is boasting, is it?

You can always say "no thanks". I'm not arguing with you about it.

My first name? It starts with the letter A.
I wasn't calling you a liar. I thought you were being disingenuous because everyone here is pretty mean spirited. Thought you were too. I'll take your word for it. Don't disappoint me. I think the women get very jealous when another woman shows up, Very territorial, I guess. They try very hard to get you to leave their MEN alone. I'm not here to meet a guy, but they seem to think they own the guys on here. Very sad, indeed. Jealousy is not a good trait.
Are you allowed to say where you live? My location is quite evident. Nothing to hide.
That's all you now offer? The initial A? Don't disappoint you, you now command? I offered you courtesy and you return it with a transparent attempt at manipulation. I have been on these forums for sometime as my date indicates. You are not speaking to some airhead who can't think for himself and just fell from the back of a turnip truck. Your assessment of the people here is faulty. Many of them on both sides can be good conversationalists, and you'd find that out if you dropped the manipulation and the pretense and attempted a real discussion.

I know your ip is not new to this forum and you have aroused my suspicions with your attempts at manipulation and to gain trust and information.

You sir, or ma'am, have disappointed me.

No, you NEVER get to any that say "some" worship cows, since by their faith's belief, THEY DO NOT WORSHIP COWS.
Period.
You may have found sites by morons that are making that claim, but since its NOT a factual claim, its simply more bullshit on the internet.
If you bothered to actally try to LEARN something about that faith, you'd know that to be true, and stop tying to DEMEAN THEIR FAITH by ignoring the facts.
You're so busy trying to invalidate OTHERS faiths, you're ignoring the facts.
AGAIN, this is what you claimed you would "try" not to do anymore, yet you're not even trying, you're just repeating the same bullshit and trying to justify it.
<quoted text>
You're lying. Again. I personally have tried to tell you about MY faith, the Jewish faith, and you've ignored it. Numerous times. In fact, you've tried to deman the Jewish faith in the process. You're ignoring everything you're being shown about the Hindu religions, you've ignored everything STO and others have tried to speak to you about regarding THEIR Christian faith, because YOU dont like it and dont believe in it.
Because YOU dont believe in it doesn't invalidate the facts about their beliefs. But AGAIN, you're so busy ignoring what you dont like, you miss the big picture.
Why am I NOT shocked that you're not only incapable of learning something new, but that you dont practice what you preach?
When it comes to faith, its not about YOU, its about the INDIVIDUAL.
I preach Jesus, becouse I believe He is the one true God, and I give examples where I believe He changed my life, and the life of others, but anyone can preach whatever they wish.

As far as hindus worshipping cows, I assumed when people lead cows around in starving countries, that they worship them. If you search cow worship, you get many sights saying people "including some hindus " worship cows.

My parents prized education more than probably any other factor. They encouraged us to learn things even if they weren't career-oriented, and to question anything that seemed incongruous.
I'm not sure they allow "take a child to work" day in medical facilities these days, but I can imagine it: "Now, honey, this is called a speculum--can you pronounce that? Now, you aren't going to BELIEVE what Mommy is going to do with this..."

No, I said you're insane. You blab on and on about things you don't know about, like starving children and hindus worshipping cows. Then again, the American use of the word worship has swayed from it's original meaning, but you wouldn't care to know about any of that either.
Maybe you can find a blog by a religous nut, like yourself, that says that Hindus worship cows, but that still won't be true. Do you ever check your sources or are do you just believe whatever you read...... as long as it fits into your world view and your beliefs?
Perhaps a very small percentage of Hindus might worship a cow. It's not as if I am in the Hindu nation taking a census of each person. I will not rule out the possibility. This is called keeping an open mind; something you know very little about.
I worship God, becouse He is WORTHY.
not just an act for an hour a week, but all week long, when I choose to walk or talk a ceetain way, it is worship. Some guys worship their girlfriends, or their cars, and if they lead a cow around everywhere they went, especialy in starving countries, then they worship the cow.

I went from believing in No god, to believing Jesus is God, becouse of my life altering experience. I was born again, and found out a few weeks later who did it, and how it was done.
I moved in with a non religious friend, the night after my salvation experience, and was lead to read a bible and go to church, by whom I call not just my God, but the one and only God.

People have faith in many things, from rabbit feet, to black squirles to give them luck and fortune, and most are usualy not offended in the least when any other is spoken of, it is when someone claims that Jesus Christ is the way to eternal life, that others will either say amen to, or become very defensive. I wonder why that is.

I find this quite hypocritical of you since 3 people have told you their names, two of us have them as our SN, and you still stick with the Guppy moniker.

Preaching is fine, however many Christians cross the line by trying to enact their beliefs into law.

I'm fine with some christian preaching that abortion is wrong. I'm completely against it when they try to outlaw abortion or verbally assualt women at abortion clinics

I'm fine with some christian preaching that same sex marriage is wrong. I'm completely against it when they try and deny the same rights heterosexual couples have to homosexual couples.

I'm fine with christian kids praying privately in a public school, however, I'm completely against a teacher/administrator led prayers of any religion at a public assembly.

its really quite simple

DON'T BELIEVE IN ABORTION, DON'T HAVE ONE.
DON'T BELIEVE IN SAME SEX MARRIAGE, DON'T MARRY SOMEONE OF THE SAME SEX
