    Plan B does not prevent more abortion as it IS abortion.

    Way to completely dodge my point. Answer it first if you want me to even consider answering yours.

    Now how about a real argument?
    I gave you one and you didn't like it. The goal of antiabortionists is to take control over women's reproductive freedom, period. It's so funny that the same side of the aisle that claims to be for liberty and freedom is all in favor of its destruction on this issue.

    This. Rape is all about taking control from the victim over herself. Plan B, while it certainly doesn't reverse that, gives the woman a little of that control back.

    I see you have realised where your comments lead. When you talk about viability you are talking about the viability or potentiality of a human person and nature. Otherwise viability would make no sense. This means you are picking and choosing when a human person is expendable and when they are not. I know which position, yours or the pro-life position, which I find more disgusting, despite all your heated rhetoric. Rhetoric you often rely on, and certainly have in this thread where you have periodically weighed in to make extremely provocative and totally emotional screeds against the pro-life position.

    I'm answering your contention by trying to get you to respond to this question.

    Yeah, I'm also for taking away murdering freedom. How horrible of me.

    If she was not impregnated then it doesn't do much. It she was impregnated then it kills the fetus.

Do you see a problem in that your definition for when dignity is gained is necessarily dependent on medical technology? A metaphysical concept should be unrelated to practical considerations.
