    The decision was not based on liberty.

    And recognizing it is a further erosion of decent standards does not say I am saddened. Where do you come up with such nonsense?

    Of course it sounds smart to you.
    It still is an erosion of decent standards.

    Who cares what the decision was based on? Personal liberty is personal liberty. Why don't you actually try to form an argument why you think you should be able to tell people what to do with their own bodies.

    ^^ See? You have this imaginary notion of "decent standards", which is really just you wanting to force your beliefs on others.

    Why don't you recognize it wasn't about liberty but safety.
    That is absurd reasoning.

    And it is an erosion of decent standards.

    Either way, you're against the decision (not that you're Canadian) on the basis that it "erodes" standards of decency. So what difference does it make what basis it was decided on?

    Their decision may not have been based on liberty, but the effect is a win for personal liberty. A person can now do with their body what they choose. Why do you oppose that? Are you refusing a third time to say why or are you just going to continue to pound and stomp your feet like a child?

    So was the exoneration of George Zimmerman.

    But the court has spoken in both cases.
    “Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
    For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
    And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
    And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”

    Apparently you are the only one stomping their feet and acting like a child because you can not understand that I gave my answer.

    To what end? According to you, it's wrong either way. You'd have the court uphold your notion of "decency."
