Hands lead to wasting seed!!
you hand can be a potential human when cloned too
arguement busters me and Rayne
the problem is that conception is an entirely arbitrary point at which to consider something 'life.' logically a fetus could be defined as life at the point it gains a level of sentience/perception of reality/feeling/etc. until then it is potential life, a potential person - just as any sperm cell is a potential life/person.
before a fetus has any type of self awareness at all it doesn't make sense to consider abortion of that fetus murder if you don't also consider masturbation murder.
I should note that in the bible a man is struck by lightning becuase he "missed" the whole. So yeah...
its not a matter of killing a being that is self-aware, its about not being a complete douche and allowing people to never have any sexual responsibility. masturbation is completely different because sperm are not a potential human without conception. the wasting of cells owned by one person is like skin cells that die perpetually. they are perpetually replaced until death (or in some cases, disease)
abortion is acceptable in situations where they know the mother would die in child birth, or if they knew their genetics wouldn't conceive a healthy, normal child.
i believe that it should be limited. not outlawed. if people could have some self control about themselves in this era, maybe this world wouldn't have so many issues like this.
Actually Pants, it's a matter of reducing suffering. Whether it be stopping a mother from dying, or a family from going into the poor house because of an extra liability, or to stop a soul from being raised by a teenage mother in a bungalow with her crack-head boyfriend. of course, using a abortion as a form of contraception is stupid, however I have heard of a good method in Ontario. Your first abortion is free, the second half-off, the rest you gotta pay the whole fee.
(child services is a good option for most of those )
hey wait, if you have a crack addict boyfriend, why would you want to have kids with him?
and if its because YOU do crack, how do you afford the abortion?
lmao supporting crackheads
ill give you a moment to tell me yourself how hypocritical this statement isabortion is acceptable in situations where they know the mother would die in child birth, or if they knew their genetics wouldn't conceive a healthy, normal child.
In the case of the mother, I dunno. You usually aren't able to tell that the pregnancy will be fatal to the mother due to some complication until way past the first trimester, usually a few weeks before birth. The body would self-abort early enough (within 6-8 weeks) if it senses that the pregnancy is going to go wrong. I wouldn't say abort the child if it's going to kill the mother and it's due in a few weeks; I'd tell those doctors to try damn hard to keep the little thing alive via life support. If it just isn't possible, well... sometimes you win sometimes you lose. There's no point in destroying an already productive member of society.
Who are YOU to say who deserves to live or die? Even if a person is retarded with no arms or legs they still are a person they do think admitantly not very much but they do they will have the some intelligence and usefullness like an infant. So should be allow INFANTICIDE! Fuck no thats rediculus. Further move what if that baby was born like ed with a genitic defect that possibly could kill him early off in life? I don't think it should be wise to kill someone like that off (no matter how much any of you hate ed ) becuase if you read through his posts he is a perfectly intelligent person that becuase of a birth defect could die any day. And this "usefullness to society" so do you suggest we kill of vetrans too? Becuase most vetrans are a mess and they will never do anything for society again. SO SHOULD WE KILL THEM! NO! Tereasa your going down the path of social darwinism something the nazis did and look where that ended up. As said I support aborting in its early stages because its nothing but if your child is actually going to turn into something usefull or not in the later stages then yes the pregenacy needs to continue.
rayne, you sure are a hack
