Did I? When? What were my exact words? Let's see a link.
You said that you felt a woman should be able to have an abortion at any time. If you changed your mind, then how do you feel now. Feel free to make your stance clear.

Happens all the time just on here. Character assassination is destroying and marginalizing. Seems to be their operatus modi.
A big reason this president is still sitting in the Oval Office.
They are now going to hone in on Marco Rubio. Watch and see the 'lean mean liberal machine' try and destroy him before 2016.
They won't argue his principles. They will go after his character.
Doesn't even have to be something they can prove or even the truth. They have a big bullhorn - the mainstream media.
Speaking of Rubio, I never saw one liberal media station even mention what he said in his response to the president, but they spent days laughing at him because he had a drink of water.

It's that they'll go to any lengths to legislate their personally held beliefs that is disconcerting, imo. That link of the photo shopped hodge-podge pics of dead embryos/fetuses, infants, pregnant women, Planned Parenthood, ultrasound pics, and etc.? Well it shows such a willingness for open manipulation (from either angle; being or doing). That these people are unable to separate these images, keep 'em in context, is disheartening. They might as well stick their spoons out and ask for more.
all legislation is someone's personally held belief.
do all laws disconcert you?

I don't think your rhetoric on topix is going to change anyone's mind. Because even if abortion were illegal, it would still happen.
It's been happening since the beginning of time. Condoning it and legalizing it is the moral dilemma.

The Oath of Hippocrates (400 B.C.):I swear by Apollo the physician, and Aesculapius, and Health, and All-heal, and all the gods and goddesses that, according to my ability and judgment, I will keep this Oath...I will follow that system of regimen which, according to my ability and judgment, I consider for the benefit of my patients and abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous. I will give no deadly medicine to any one if asked, nor suggest any such counsel; and in like manner I will not give to a woman a pessary to produce abortion...

Of course, the oath has changed in modern times. A percentage of physicians even believe the oath is outdated and not applicable because they actually "do harm".

That is how far we have "progressed" as a civilized society.

Contraception is evil? I bet sex is evil in your world unless it's done how you please, also.
Already posted this on the previous page but will post it again for your benefit.

I used the word "evil" in the context of contraception for the other poster's benefit.

I, myself, would be ecstatic if every woman who engaged in sexual activity used a form of contraception to prevent creating life.

Still here lyin' and pretending to be some smartass know it all. Go slither back into your hole. Aborting your child at 27 weeks is MURDER AND ABOMINABLE. Everbody here needs to know you did this. I KNOW even though you deny knowing me, you DO! You LIE!
I don't lie. You are the one lying.

No, I don't know you, and you don't know me.

I've never had an abortion.

first you say I said you were confused, now you say I claimed you said something about the law. is lying a compulsion with you?
you could not have been asked why you were pro choice unless you had first volunteered that you were pro choice. your personal opinion regarding choice is irrelevant to anyone but you. same as your personal opinion regarding abortion is irrelevant. yet you tell us your personal opinion on choice every chance you get and refuse to divulge your personal opinion on abortion on the grounds it is irrelevant.
you expend a lot of energy lying and avoiding answering. it's amusing.
So, be amused, Troll. I really couldn't care less. You're meaningless.

Unfortunately, it's the same old hypocrisy.

If it had been Obama reaching for something to drink, it would have been applauded as spontaneous and natural by the left.

And we wouldn't have heard anywhere near the same ridicule from the right.

Are you even trying to pay attention? A fertilized egg begins to morph into a human being within the first five weeks.
The fetus begins to develop its brain, heart, spinal cord and digestive system. By the fifth week, it grows arm and leg buds and the heart has developed a regular rhythm. The eyes and ears are also developing and the baby's major organs have formed.
By the sixth week, the bones are forming and facial features become more distinct. By the end of the 11th week, the baby has formed genitalia and the head has grown to nearly half its entire body size.
What part of being a human being don't you understand?
You didn't answer my question. Instead, you're trying to assassinate my character, marginalize, and destroy me just because I don't agree a frozen embryo or fertilized egg is a baby.

What do you think should be done with all the tens of thousands of frozen embryos that no one has plans for?

Are you even tring to pay attention?

Actually, the real question is have YOU ever watched Fox News? Because it seems the ones who complain the loudest admit they've never watched it.

No other news outlet that I know of always has both points of view represented on any issue.

The statistics show O'Reilly, for example, is the most watched cable news source on television and has an audience comprised of more moderate democrats and independents combined than conservatives. It is also syndicated around the world.

In other words, a lot of people watch it. Guess they all must be morons.

The AC side will never get that we, on the PC side, don't condone or condemn abortion. It's a civil rights issue.

Are you one who would deny a woman her choice in the case of a life threatening pregnancy?

We can only hope if the same frozen embryo becomes fertilized by the same sperm donor, sisters and brothers won't be marrying each other.

What do you see as the purpose of frozen embryos? It's a serious question.

The South once thought slavery was a civil rights issue too, only slaves didn't have any rights either and slavery was legal.

It's been said the moral test of any society is how it treats its most vulnerable members.

The unborn are society's most vulnerable members.
