    Of course you don't because that would reveal the true basis of your arguments. It's kind of like when the U.S. used "scientific arguments" in order to suppress everyone from Natives to the Irish. We all know the real reason was blatant xenophobia and in other cases racism. I'd at least consider you honest if you didn't double speak so much.

    Think what you want about my arguments and basis behind them What you are doing is committing a logical fallacy by not addressing what I say and going after your preconceived "fact" as to why I believe something and argue the way that I do and that it somehow invalidates my arguments. What isn't honest is you applying such things towards me.

    Regardless, if you want to debate abortion or my stances on it this is not the place. I'm not going to derail this thread.

    I don't have to think anything about your arguments. I know the true reason you want to create 'logical' and 'legal' arguments against abortion is because you're not honest enough to simply say 'Hey, this is against my religion'.

    You want to be Pro-Life, fine. You want to be Republican , fine. You want to be Democrat, fine. You want to be for same sex marriage , fine. You want to be against same sex marriage , fine.

    But don't try to shove your crap on me. I am just getting my clothes clean at your establishment. We are not close buddies who get together for barbecues. We are not getting together to drink a beer and discuss current affairs.

    I think I would prefer to pay the cleaner with dollar bills with the words "Free Abortions" across the dollars I pay him for doing my cleaning.

    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.
    Did you read the rules on the top of the forum?

    Seems like a practical enough message: make abortion illegal and women will go back to using coat hangers. What's inaccurate about that?

    I don't know about the bus you are talking about but putting 'choose life' on a coat hanger is a very mild and harmless message...

    It's also one that most people support.

    A time when anyone "HAD TO" take an innocent human life in aggression?


    No, Hatuey, you did not live in such times.

    Clearly he has a right to do so. Same with businesses that put political signs in their windows. However, if it is for something I oppose I won't do business there as I see it as financing the opposition.

    Aren't you actively suppressing like minded views by calling his view point/actions dumb? Isn't demeaning opposing views a form a suppression?
