    Great, appeal to authority. Nobody has yet explained the constitutionality of it. I don't care about the arguments on what PP is, or why people think it's good or bad. The judge said banning it is unconstitutional. Professionals accepting it is not an answer, it's a cop out.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Is that the answer to why we can't get rid of the funding? Because of the services? What a lame legal case that makes if so.

    In case you don't understand my point it is simple. If the state funds one organization that provides a particular service then the state should fund them all FOR THAT SERVICE. It is perfectly acceptable to not fund a particular service or to fund specific services. But to ban a whole organization from recieving funds because of one service out of dozens that they provide? That is throwing the baby out with the bath water stupidity and bigotry of the highest order. It's called equality under the law. You know..something that our country is supposedly founded upon.

    No state is required to fund abortion and to the best of my knowledge not one single state does. No federal government agency gives money towards it either.

    Anti-abortionists have gone utterly stupid banning ANY funds from going towards PP. PP abortion services make up 3% of their total services. And yet help millions of women across the country with a variety of problems...97% having nothing to do with abortion. All that this tells me is that anti-abortionists have the stick shoved up so high that they would rather millions of women have no help with breast cancer or cervic cancer or god knows what else just to save a few clumps of cells.

    OMG, its not punishing women if you stop funding it. PP will still exist people. Look at how private funding goes up every time PP funding is threatened. That should answer all your worries.

    Everytime you look up and post a study or an article to support one of your statements you are making an appeal to authority. The question is..."is this a valid form of appeal to authority"?

    In this case I believe it is.

    As for the rest of your post...that post of mine was not directed at you. So naturally it is not going to address what you want answered or what you care about.

    Its a long thread dude. If you know the answer its easier if you just quote it. And thanks for doing it, btw.

    I look at it this way. If a state funds any medical organization then they should ALL be funded equally. If a state funds an organization that gives pap smears then the state should fund all organizations that gives pap smears. If they fund an organization that helps with breast cancer then they should fund all organizations that help with breast cancer.
    That doesn't appear to be a constitutional argument. It appears to be an equality argument which is fine, but I see nothing in the Constitution that says anything like the above. I guess you could argue the 14th but that is hell of a jump that I assume this judge did.

    You know..something that our country is supposedly founded upon.
    Eh..equality under the law was meant so that everyone had their rights and liberties protected. Its hard to make the argument that providing services is anything like that.

    If we got rid of funding all across the board for ALL organization then there would be no valid gripe. However singleing out a specific organization? Thats an entirely different ball of wax. IMO it is much like what happened earlier in President Obama's term when he tried to prevent FOX reporters from participating in what every other news agency was allowed in. Even the other news agencies knew that was wrong to do and spoke against Obama for it. So why is it OK when it comes to PP? Why is it OK to exclude them from a service that every other organization gets to partake in? All because of some service which they provide...never mind the fact that NONE of the money that is provided ever goes towards abortion. In fact it is illegal for those funds to go towards abortion.

    It was also meant to protect people from being excluded from services that the government provides. For example (and yes this is a bit extreme perhaps..but valid imo) would you find it acceptable if cops started to ignore emergency calls to low income neighborhoods?

    You grievously misunderstand what the logical fallacy of appeal to authority is. Stating "And yet professionals from both sides of the aisle still accept them at their word." is an appeal to authority. Presenting graphs, statistics, and other forms of evidence from unbiased sources is the presentation of evidence. Of course, what you're doing now is classic misdirection of the topic, in order to derail the original question I presented, which was for someone to demonstrate how banning PP is unconstitutional. So far, I still have no answer.

    As for the rest of your post...that post of mine was not directed at you.
    Then why did you quote me?

    Nope, I just showed how else it could be applied.
