skullkrusher: to morons, perhaps.parasites cannot live without a host. A viable fetus, by definition, can. Nothing to do with a "fictitious sky wizard" either. You gotta try a bit harder. Showing your hand so quickly is amateur hour bullshiat

skullkrusher: yep. You do know what a metaphor is, right? It is not meant to be a literal perfect match for the situation being described.
serial_crusher: If you can't afford to take a pregnancy test at least once every 20 weeks you probably can't afford a baby or an abortion either, so keep it wrapped up and/or in your pants.
RedT: bdub77:The woman can choose whether to do the cesarian or not. They can carry to full term if they wish. The state would pay for whatever procedure, for the time the woman is out of work, and for the care of the child for the first 18 years of life (as well as provide adoption services).These are the same states that are fighting universal heath care./And does the mom get a unicorn as a parting gift?
skullkrusher: what_now: skullkrusher: what_now: skullkrusher: nice subject change.You brought up Europe.skullkrusher: Do you now agree that society can and should restrict abortions after a certain point or we still going with the balls out "feminist" stupidity?No. I will never, ever agree that "society" has a right to decide on my health care decisions,EVER, regardless of how stupid you think feminism is.well, tough shiat, cupcake. Reasonable people have agreed that reasonable restrictions on abortion after a certain point is good. All over the world, actually./cupcake was for effect//I do rather like you, ya crazy feminazi babykillerIt has been a long long time since I've heard any politician make a reasonable argument for restricting abortion access.just to be clear, we are referring to your apparent position that abortion should be unrestricted, for any reason, up until the moment of birth... presumably you think infanticide is bad. Hard to understand for people who support unfettered abortion up until the point the baby finishes its move through the birth canal but I must assume.
skullkrusher: People like me? I think defining "elective" as an abortion performed for reasons other than protecting the life and health of the mother is pretty reasonable. Why do you hate reasonable people?
serial_crusher: Be careful how you use the word "health". The like to point out the inherent health risks of pregnancy itself ("oh no, it's almost as risky as driving a car!") or make dubious claims about mental health with ridiculous thresholds for what counts as reasonable mental health protection ("being pregnant makes me sad, boo hoo!")

spiderpaz: lolwut? I hate to break it to you but plenty of women and non-white men disagree with you. You can't just blame white men any time you're trying to make an argument unsuccessfully. That's ridiculous.
skullkrusher: yeah that doesn't say anything about abortion. Nor does it even mention that the woman is pregnant.
Ambivalence: vernonFL: IF you are against abortion, go do a Google Image search for "harlequin baby"Then tell me you're against all abortion./NEVER do a GIS for "harlequin baby."OMG I wish I had just taken your word for it. I am not easily disgusted but...OMG I feel like I need a pint of bourbon to forget that.
dehehn: Honestly if you add "and in cases where it threatens the life of the mother" to rape and incest, then I feel like 20 weeks is a good compromise. "Didn't know they were pregnant", isn't really a great excuse for getting a late term abortion. If we're going to compromise on this then Democrats have to be willing to concede some things.
Heraclitus: You know, if we hook a generator up to the Republican spin machine we could solve the worlds energy problems.
vernonFL: IF you are against abortion, go do a Google Image search for "harlequin baby"Then tell me you're against all abortion./NEVER do a GIS for "harlequin baby."
vernonFL: Is it me, or has Yahoo become a right wing mouthpiece website in the last year? This is just more evidence of that.
