spawn73: People are morons though. But morons thankfully don't get to define a definition still used today in political science.
Kevin72: liam76: Kevin72: What a chintzy moneygrubbing tight-ass cheapskate. Would it have killed his pocketbook to fly to France or Italy or Mexico or Mississippi to get a legal abortion to save the life of his wife? It's not like they don't ban pregnant women from flying to prevent abortions?Don't know if you are trolling or skipped the article, but they weren't planning on an abortion until they went to the hospital and encountered problems.I was a bit tough on him. But to save the life of his wife, couldn't they have done some kind of emergency trip to Scotland or England at whatever the cost? He's an engineer and she was a dentist, income-wise. Lifesaving, my son, lifesaving.
coco ebert: It's time for the Irish to take this shiat to the streets. A couple of months back the conservative government in Turkey tried to severely restrict abortion and women (and men) took to the streets in massive numbers. Eventually the government backed down.
Fark It: ginandbacon: I don't think we in this country should be gloating: "In 2010, countries with highest maternal mortality were: Chad (1,100), Somalia (1,000), Central African Republic, (890), Sierra Leone (890) and Burundi (800).Lowest rates included Estonia at 2 per 100,000 and Singapore at 3 per 100,000. In the United States, the maternal death rate was 21 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births in 2010."In the U.S. there are more women having babies when they're older, and more diabetic/obese women having babies.
spawn73: Nope. It's a definition used in political science, and it is clearly defined as having a specific meaning in relation to the cold war. Common usage won't ever change /that/ definition.
Kibbler: mrshowrules: ginandbacon: Hunter_Worthington: ginandbacon: Why not? And what's arbitrary about the science of fetal brain development?I'm not a neuro-scientist, so I can't answer that question. I can tell you, form a logical standpoint, liberals shouldn't be deciding something is/isn't a human being, if they're arguing elsewhere that Human Rights are universal.Here sweetie. Get a little science in your worldview. When you have figured out the difference between an adult woman and a collection of cells that recognizes light, get back to me.Part of me wishes he had a daughter in that type of circumstance so he could have some informed perspective but then I think it is just generally better that he doesn't reproduce.I don't. He might consign her to a horrible death while smugly lecturing her about libby libs and their stupid libby lib human rights. LIBBY LIBS.Wouldn't be her fault dad is an ass.
GAT_00: make me some tea: ginandbacon: I don't think we in this country should be gloating: "In 2010, countries with highest maternal mortality were: Chad (1,100), Somalia (1,000), Central African Republic, (890), Sierra Leone (890) and Burundi (800).Lowest rates included Estonia at 2 per 100,000 and Singapore at 3 per 100,000. In the United States, the maternal death rate was 21 maternal deaths per 100,000 live births in 2010."I wonder what that rate is by U.S. state?Link. Nearly twice as high in the District, surprisingly low in Alaska.
