    I think there's a difference between me thinking someone has stupid ideas, and making those idea's illegal. Those nutcases can have their own bigoted things to preach about. I don't like the idea of it, but I don't want to make it illegal. Same thing with gender selection. I think it's a stupid idea, but I'm not for making it illegal.

    It's the same view I have of talk radio. It's mostly trash that only redneck retards that drag their knuckles on the ground when they walk listen to, but I don't want to outlaw it.

    That's the difference between sane people and the uber-religious. The sane people don't think that laws should be made so that everyone has to behave in the way that they think is correct.

I think it's a shallow reason to abort a pregnancy, but I also think it's not any of our business why a person seeks an abortion.
    For me, the numbers don't matter; it's the notion itself rather than its possible "aggregate effects."

    If there was a test that could detect latent homosexuality in the womb, I would encourage people to take advantage of it.

    I don't count immigration, and nobody else should, either. The thing about immigrants is, they're not fully Americans-- and the more immigrants there are at one time, the less American those immigrants have to be and the less American they become when they settle here.

    Using immigration to shore up deficiencies in your birth rate is demographic suicide.

    And that's probably the same feeling that 99% of the country has.

    I just don't get why I should be upset because some conservative went into a planned parenthood and lied saying that they would abort if it was a girl. It wasn't planned parenthood's idea and they did nothing wrong in my eyes.

    That really depends on your immersion rate. If you can quickly bring people into the culture, it's fine. Now there are limits, even with sufficient assimilation rates you can have too many immigrants to fully integrate into society; so there is need to control influx. But in general immigration is good for a country and helps spur innovation. You need some level of immigration.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    I think aborting a baby just because its a girl is wrong. I consider my self prochoice but if you are going to have kids what's wrong with a girl.

    I think it's wrong too. I just don't think you should be able to outlaw it.

    A lot of pro choice countries have done this. Don't know but maybe im biased about this since i've been to india and have seen some of the malnourished girls there. Female infanticide and gender-selective abortion is a huge problem there. The indian govornment has banned amniocentesis but you can easily pay a doctor to break the law.

    Honestly it's just of no concern to me. I don't think there are any people in this country getting abortions til they have boys. There might be a handful of cases where this has happenned, but that's not enough to get me to worry about it.
