    Classy.

    This reminds me of my recent bus excursion to Texas. All over the place in the American hinterland there are farm houses and water towers with gaudy anti-abortion messages plastered all about them, usually done up in annoying colours and occasionally misspelled. They remind me of Las Vegas, for some reason.

    I lived in that time. We also used coat hangers to unlock car doors. No TV either.

    Excuse me, I must return to my iron lung now.

    That's precisely the point. I don't care for going back to a time where women had to go through that. Certain elements of the extremist religious right wing obviously do (this guy for example).

    It's a simple point for you two fellows, I don't need be a Jew who lived through 1945 in order to know the Holocaust was bad. I don't need to be a chicken in order to know KFC is not a good thing for chickens. However, that you two can't seem to understand that using a ****ing coathanger just to have an abortion (and so that the desires of your religious and arguably fictional deities can be fulfilled ) is bad, leaves me with two options: Either you're letting your own religious hatred for CHOICE blind you, or you really don't understand what's wrong with using a coathanger in order to support the anti-choice side. So which is it boys?

    Essentially, from a professional point of view (I work in advertisement) this 'ad' is telling women that he wants to go back to that time. The choice of medium is all one needs to deduce that.

    I don't think you understand the pro-life stance if you think that's what it's all about.

    I've been wondering when I was going to get a chance to obliterate you over this issue again. You love playing semantics. So let's play.

    Do I understand the 'pro-life' side? Oh, I definitely understand it. Ban elective abortions ie. reproductive choice. It's that simple. Now, do you know what women use to do when they had no reproductive choice?

    I'll give you a clue: coat hangers.

    That's the inevitable result of the pro-life stance, regardless of intentions.

    I don't ever remember you "obliterating" me.

    You see it as "reproductive choice" and I see it as human rights for the unborn that are obviously having their rights violated.

    Yawn, son, tell it to somebody who doesn't know your history on this forum. You see it as an infringement on the arguably fictional desires of the deity you've bet all your chips on. I don't honestly care about your beliefs as long as you keep them to you and yours. The choice is up to the woman. Not your religious beliefs.

    That's nice. If you know me so well on the forum you would also know that when arguing abortion I do not use religion nor do I quote things from the Bible. I see it as violating human rights due to the fact that an implanted zygote/fetus is human at all stages. Electively killing that life for any reason without restrictions is ethically wrong and a violation of human rights in my opinion and should not be allowed.

    Regardless, this thread is not about the issue of abortion. If you would like to debate me on that then make a thread in the abortion forum with your arguments. I'd rather not derail this one.
