    His relationship to me and my boat was parasitic anyway, and since it's my boat, it's my choice.

    Honestly, Tucker, I thought you were Pro-Choice. I guess I was wrong.
    An abortion can be seen as assuring the fetus has access to air. It's not the mother's fault if the fetus doesn't have the ability to survive outside the womb and utilize that air. Think of her blood vessels just as you would think of a water pipe going into a house in my example.

    The kid has a right to access air, but they don't have the right to have it BROUGHT to them.


    P.S. Your kid doesn't have a right to access the boat. So by kicking him out of it, you aren't denying him access to air, you're denying him access to the boat, so the comparison only strengthens my point.

    Now, if you held his head under water......

    Refute? You dropped your dick in the dirt when you said:

    "Someone the is pregnant cannot hand off the kid to someone else."

    You might want to pick it up out of the dirt now, and quietly sneak away...

    Boy you sure have an interest in my Dick, sorry I don't swing that one. But hey, don't feel bad, there is nothing wrong with you being gay.

    When you feel like actually refuting something instead of showing interest in my dick (really I'm flattered), let me know.

    You might want to look up water rights:
    Water Right in water law refers to the right of a user to use water from a water source, e.g., a river, stream, pond or source of groundwater. In areas with plentiful water and few users, such systems are generally not complicated or contentious. In other areas, especially arid areas where irrigation is practiced, such systems are often the source of conflict, both legal and physical. Some systems treat surface water and ground water in the same manner, while others use different principles for each.

    In the United States, there are two divergent systems for determining water rights. Riparian water rights (derived from English common law) are common in the east and prior appropriation water rights (developed in Colorado and California) are common in the west. Each state has its own variations on these basic principles, as informed by custom, culture, geography, legislation and case law. California law, for example, includes elements of both systems. In general, a water right is established by obtaining an authorization from the state in the form of a water right permit. A legal right is formally consummated, or perfected, by exercising the water right permit and using the water for a beneficial purpose.

    Oh BS if it is not. Quite obviously as I proved there is a right to water the question is to what degree. So now that it is a established there is a right to water recognized by law what do you have to say?

    "Water Rights" as you posted deal with people havng the ability to access publuc water sources.

    "Water rights as a human right" implies that everyone has a basic, natural right to water, and that to deny them access to same violates said right. This includes pivately owned sources of water or any other souce not considered public -- and so, if you do not have any water, you have a right to mine. This is in opposition to water rights in the context of property rights.

    It ALSO implies some degree of governmental responsibility to supply people with the water necessary to exercise that right, including those people that cannot otherwise afford it.

    Water is a necessity.
    That it is a necessity in no way means you have the right to expect someone to give it to you.
