I think the most important question brought up in this article is.....WTF kind of name is "Tagg"?
 
2012-08-15 07:56:32 AM
FTFA: You're in a burning building with a 5-year old child and a canister of a dozen frozen fertilized human eggs. You only have time to save one of them. What do you do?

If you choose the canister, congratulations; you're not a hypocrite. You can feel proud of your ideological purity as you're carted off to jail for negligent homicide.

If you choose the child, good for you; you recognize that the life of a living, breathing, self-aware child is worth at least 12 times as much as the "life" of a tiny spec of organic matter.

And what's the cut-off point? What about 50 fertilized eggs? What about 100? 1,000? 10,000? If you choose to save the child's life over "saving" a whole freezer-full of fertilized human eggs, you're admitting that the kid is a human life, but fertilized eggs are not.

Of course, the response to this is invariably "that's a ludicrious situation that would never happen. It's not as simple as that!"

To which I reply, "You're absolutely right. It's NEVER that simple. Life doesn't work that way; pregnancy, and how to handle it, is the most private, personal, emotional decision a woman can make, and isn't subject to anyone else's value judgments. Which is why it's not something that should be legislated."


I love this SO MUCH I wanna fertilize it!

Not that I'm arguing with the basic premise of that example, but I don't understand why I couldn't take the canister under one arm, take the child's hand with my other, and save them both.

Wait, you're there too? Fine, I draw my Glock and force you to pick up the canister and march you out while I carry my child on my back. Then I Glock-whip you.

Look, killing the biatch cheating on you can also be the most private, personal decision someone can make. That doesn't mean it shouldn't be legislated against. It's a bad argument that shouldn't be used. Unlike the cannister v child analogy, which is a good argument.

But, nobody likes your child. Hopefully, in that canister, one of the dozen potential kids in there might not turn out to be a dick.

Do you keep the child you have, or do you gamble for a better one?

Oh, I completely agree, and I know he's a little shiat. But until I find out for sure that the ones in the canister aren't all equally bad (like, they might all be girls or something), it just makes practical sense to keep him around. Always cover all your bases. And anyway, there's always another fire or guy with a baseball bat around to take care of him if a good replacement opportunity presents itself.

Exhibit #22 that Romney didn't even read Ryan's policy ideas. Under Ryan's plans, Ann's use of IVF to have a child, as well as the IVF use of a few of his grown children to have their own, would be criminal acts.

I wonder if Romney can break the law retroactively too?

while you were all arguing over that canister, I bar the door and wait for ALL of you to die from smoke inhalation. then, once things have cleared out a bit, I cast 'unhallow' followed by 'animate dead' and have your reanimated violated corpses clean up the mess you all caused by having this stupid slap fight in the first place. after that, i'm having your zombified asses hunt down some pro-lifers and eat them. just 'because I can.

The Romney genes are diluted to the point it takes IVF and surrogate standins for them to create spawn. I wonder if they have a hemophiliac or two in there? Truly they are America's royalty.

Alright, so turn to page 96.

You frog-march DammitIForgotMyLogin out of the burning building at Glock-point, the child over your back and the SpermosTM under your masculine, well-defined left arm. The police, fire department, and local Baptist church declare you the Hero of Conservative Everything, and begin affixing ribbons to your face and chest as you beat your captive with your G36, the perfect slim-line, compact, concealed carry weapon that still puts the tried-and-true .45 round downrange. As your captive submits his life to the promise of the resurrection, you are approached by two people asking you to accompany them tomorrow.

To make plans with the Delta Force Colonel to teach the Navy SEALS hand-to-hand karate secrets the liberal media doesn't want them to know, turn to page 12.

To accept the minister's daughter's invitation to the congregation's picnic lunch and be surrounded by the well-defined blood-engorged labia peaking through millimeter-thin cotton bikini-bottoms in a conservative, Christian-approved environment, turn to page 88.


God this was always the weirdest one of the bunch. Can we do Your Very Own Robot instead?

An even funner twist: the power is out in the region and the fertilized eggs will die at room temperature. Does every woman in the area age 15-45, including your own family, have a moral responsibility to implant the eggs and carry them to term? After all, the eggs are human beings and we all should do everything possible to help them survive, right?

no, Ryan was merely echoing the teachings of the Catholic Church which, as I recall, isn't too fond of IVF. they're even less fond of any sort of screening procedures for congenital defects. the idea being that if you find out your child is going to be born with some sort of defect that you'll abort the fetus and try again for a 'better' child.

Other way around. The Catholic Church is adamantly opposed to IVF -- and this is the hilarious part given the typical view of stuffiness of the church -- because it separates procreation from the intimacy of sex. On this, the Catholic Church is pro-sex. At least they're consistent, I'll give them that, no intimacy without procreation and no procreation without intimacy. In terms of pre-natal screening, they don't care as long as the intention isn't aborting a foetus deemed to be "defective"; most Catholic authorities would probably tell you getting ready to take care of the needs of the child you're about to have is actually quite moral.

unless the point of the prenatal screening was to see if the child needed to be aborted or not. THEN the church gets kinda cranky. basically, don't tell your priest what your intentions are when you go in for the tests.

Also, "blah" in place of "black". What's up with that?

I don't get the Bapp thing, but in during the primary, Santorum said said that "Obama is making black people's lives better with other people's money", and when people pointed out how farking racist that was, he said "Oh no. I said blah people".


Hahahaha- oh right! I remember that now. Oh, the lulz of the primary season, I miss it so.
