“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
That's the same thing as saying I don't like executions, but I support the State's right to choose. Whether or not you think a fetus is a person or not has no bearing on the fact that it is a living human organism....one that's ok to kill, in your opinion.I support a woman's right to choose. I do not like the idea of abortion, I wish there were no abortions, but it is not my decision to make. Killing is bad, killing is wrong, but you can only kill something if it is alive. No one has been able to sufficiently explain to me when life begins so I don't know which is why I stay out of that thread, because I do not know. If you can talk me into that thread we'll discuss. This is a DP thread.
This is a DP thread, if you want to talk about abortion go to the abortion thread, if you want to talk about when life begins you first need to convince me that I need to engage in that argument. When you have formulated your argument PM me.
"You know, when they came and took away my fourth amendment I kept my yap shut, what the hell, I really didn’t have anything to hide anyway. When they grabbed up my second amendment I sat still and bit my tongue because, truth be told, I’m allergic to guns. But here we are, you with your cold hard fingers wrapped around the neck of my first amendment and I’ve got to shout as loud as I can, because if I don’t, before you know it, you won’t let me say nothing at all"
