    Ho ho I do find it hilarious about this whole non-consenting thing now that a few others brought it up. So you are for abortion but cutting off some dick skin is a travesty?

    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan

    It's not a matter of a few seconds. It's a matter of several months. Elective abortions are illegal in the third trimester.

    Abortion on an inviable zygote with no brain, no qualities of life, and thus no sentience to inflict harm on? Sure.

    You'll notice a pattern with me. I tend to base my opinion on evidence.

    what? you've never heard of partial birth abortions? or are you just dishonest?
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    unless that evidence is contra to your position. many abortions are performed in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters every year.

    Stop trying to argue abortion. They are just baiting you into arguing a different issue so they can ignore the circumcision issue.
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    Sure. But they are illegal for elective purposes. They are performed only in medical emergencies.

    yeah right. where do you live? fantasy island?

    what kind of medical emergency is so critical that a partial birth abortion on a viable child is necessary instead of an emergency C-section?

    It should be the choice of the parents.

    Unless you are one of those 2%ers.

    And then you ignore the complications associated with circumcision which counter that small benefit.
    Complications arise in not getting it done also.

    The time and energy would be better spent providing condoms and education.
    We have. It's done next to nothing.

    Circumcision is NOT an effective nor efficient solution for the HIV/AIDS problem.
    It would seem that it doesn't hurt.
