When it comes to death...Texas government has selective ethics.

    You can shoot, stab, electrocute...give lethal injections, hang people...but oh don't think about abortion.

    Sawyer, playing naive doesn't act as evidence on your part.
    Let me google that for you
    Men do what they have to when they want to, Great men do what they have to, even when they don't want to.

    I believe the word "innocent applies to those who are involved in behaviors. In order to be innocent one must participate in some form of empirical experience, which evidence leads to charging one's behavior with the allegation that he or she is guilty, but then exonerated from such an allegation.

    My comment was related to Texas government's strange, selective ethics when it comes to death.

    Six one way, half a dozen the other maybe.

    Show me the site that gives evidence an innocent man has been executed. The one I posted was the closest I could find. If you can do better be my guest.

    Yep, you are from Austin. Your comment is senseless. An unborn child has done nothing to offend society. The killing of that unborn child for convenience is simply murder, infanticide. Evidently a hard concept for you and others.

    I get that you were commenting on their "selective ethics". I don't see it that way. In fact, I think it is a very understandable argument for someone to be Pro-Life and Pro Capital Punishment.

    A unborn baby has committed no crime. A convicted felon on death row has been accused and found guilty and sentenced.

    Under the definition you provide...when does a child become involved in behaviors? Newborns are hardly functioning. Are they involved in a behavior? If so, a fetus that kicks when the mother eats spicy food is involved in a behavior as well.

    Thank you, there is plenty of room here for both of us. Please do keep me informed, all information can be useful, both the real and the false.

    Blue...with all due respect...this isn't a topic for this forum. I was making my comment as a metaphor. I live in Texas, born and breed and will most likely die here. That said, we have, in my opinion, a very radical state legislature and governor, all of whom I consider to be extremists and tyrants. I see their behaviors...when it comes to the topic of "death"...to be virtually an oxymoron.

    Thanks...

    I was thinking that too. Would you like to continue it in a proper forum?
