Pro-Choice Thinking vs. Ours...
Getting somewhat active in abortiondebate
again, there usually seems to be a place where no further conversation can be had. I am sure others in here who participate in that community will notice that we always get to a point where Pro-Life says, "The fetus is a person" and pro-choice says, "The fetus is not a person." Of course, we usually use fetal development to show otherwise and they use...well, they say that because a fetus is in the woman's body, it is not a person. (That is, apparently, good enough for them, casting all scientific explanations out the door.)
However, one of the things that bothers me most is the fact that, when discussing whether the "right to life" or the "right to choice" is more important, the choicers insist
that choice is, even admitting that the right to life makes more sense considering you have to be alive in order to make any choice. This is so delusional to me, and I can't understand it, nor do I even want to if there is any understanding to be doing.
Are there any good responses to this that you guys have heard? Frankly, all I do is say, "I see what you are saying" and try to let it drop.

He Who Has An Ear, Let Him Hear....
There is no such thing as the word "fetii." May we please use the proper plural form of fetus, please? As awkward as it sounds, it is, in fact, "fetuses". I could be wrong---maybe the medical community uses "fetii", but we are not (hahahaha) a medical community.

Ok need some rational here.....
I consider myself pro-life and anti-abortion because I do not support the killing of a human being, unless it is in self defense. Ok. Ok.
So, I am reading through some of these threads, just because I can't deal with AD directly. Anyway. I keep hearing this theme. Pro-choice is not pro-abortion, it is pro a woman's choice to keep a baby. So, if you are not pro-abortion, that would mean you were anti-abortion. So, if you are anti-abortion how can you support a woman's right to choose one? I heard more than one person say that most pro-choicers are NOT pro-abortion "Who is really pro-abortion" was an actual quote.
So, can someone give me some rational...or maybe help me wrap this one around my brain, as to how a person can actually be against abortion, but support it???

More people who make ad suck.
, who does the occasional one-liner pop in from time to time, came out with this gem
She starts randomly attacking some girl about her eating choices. (I also like how erinbish
feels compelled to get in on the action.)
What that has to do with abortion, the thread or the topic at hand, is beyond me - oh wait it's not - It has nothing to do with it!
Of course, she *must* have been reprimanded by one of the many monderators for her uncivil behavior. /end scoff

Little Pet Peeve
I hate it when you reply to a post with a comment that took some degree of thinking and time, only to have the original poster never comment back.
What's the point of asking a question on a debate forum if you arent going to tackle/acknowledge what is presented back to you?
/End bitch Current Mood: crazy

But why does it have the right to live? Just because it's human?

What is with all of this 'pro-abortion' nonsense in AD? Maybe true beliefs are finally surfacing.

i thought y'all should know what's going on on our behalf.

an ignoramus to an ignoramus...
"I’m personally not in favor of someone dealing drugs at schools, but that’s a matter to decide between the drug dealer and his attorney. We don’t want to go back to the days when drug dealing was illegal, and people died in back alleys from bad cocaine. I personally wouldn’t buy drugs, so I’m not pro-drugs. I’m just pro-choice about drug dealing."
Basically, being personally against abortion but favoring another’s right to abortion is self-contradictory and morally baffling. It’s exactly like saying, "We’re personally against child abuse, but we defend our neighbor’s right to abuse his child if that is his choice."
that's an excellent argument, imnsho. and this guy was called a troll. riiiiight. this guy is a troll, and abortiondebate
is full of friendly, intelligent debates, and a fetus is not human, and uranus has been colonized by portugese gazelles. Current Mood: losing faith in humanity

happened to find this, thought i'd rant.
If I could make an ordinance for my local government, I would make an ordinance that states, “Absolutely no one is allowed to get an abortion. Period.” Why? Because it’s murder. In Exodus 20:13, it states: “Thou shalt not kill.”
and then nobody would ever have an abortion ever again! just like nobody smokes marijuana because it's illegal, and nobody is ever raped because rape is illegal!
how about an ordinance that guarantees free day care and 3 years maternity leave? i.e., one that would actually have a positive impact?
oh yes, and the only reason i don't go around killing people is because the bible said not to. if only the bible said something specific about abortion--it doesn't, but it does refer to fetuses as being sentient: "...the babe leapt in her womb..." that had to hurt. not that the bible is friendly to kids: "he that spareth his rod hateth his son." right. makes *lots* of sense. i'm not trying to start a debate, (ba-dum ching!) but did it ever occur to anyone that an instruction manual for living written more than 2 millenia ago might be the slightest bit obsolete?

I posted this in prolife
so you all know what is going on. However, I will still contribute to this community. Since I will not be meeting as many educated pro-choicers in my new pro-life work, I still need to know of the idiotic things they are saying:)
I think things have calmed down a little bit for now. The quiz is still up.
Many of you may have noticed that I haven't been posting so much on Pro-Life. That is because I have decided to stop doing advocacy over the internet for the time being. I am going to put all of my efforts into doing "real life" Pro-Life work. I will still read the community, maybe post a comment every once in a while, but for the majority of time, I will be only posting in my journal and a couple of communities which I maintain. My journal will also become friends only.
Some of you will be happy, because you never liked me. That's fine. I am happy to stop doing this for a couple of reasons. Hopefully when/if I start up again---which won't be anytime soon---we will all be a little different.
Please IM me sometime if you would like to chat, or comment in my journal, or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please know that I have been planning this for the last month, and did not come to this decision lightly.
Have fun ya'll. Continue to do your work to save babies and help pregnant mothers.
Fondly, (now you know you'll miss that...)

this was inspired by snowwhitetan's post.
what (if any) validity do you give to the ad hominem argument in an abortion debate? why do you think it is that some responses to a post or comment take on the nature of an attack on someone else's character? granted, most of the time this happens, there was something in the inital post that was incendiary or provacative, but what does it lend to the debate (if anything)?
obviously it's an emotional subject that people are very passionate about. and everyone has their own notions of ethics and what it means to be ethical and conscientious. but does the 'you have no morals/ethics because we disagree on this subject' or the 'you are an archaic moron because we don't agree on this subject' response hold water.
before responding, please note that i consider a 'religious' (in quotes because we also have different concepts on the function and concept of religion) retort to be ad hominem.
