    I usually give anonymously.

    A gift should be given from the heart.
    Yes, I agree.

    And in order to itemize, you would have to donate over $10K just as a single person.

    Plus, since tithing can be used for anything, the argument that it is not necessarily going to help children (and easily claimed that the majority of tithing a person does is not going to that), then it wouldn't be fair to even consider the majority of tithing to be benefiting children just because someone is donating money to their church.

    Donations in general can be made for anything, not just benefiting children, so it is not at all accurate to consider comparisons in donations as a measure for who is helping children more or even to suggest that because a certain group donates (based on tax deductions taken for those donations) that they are helping children more or at even any sort of level as another group. The only way you could connect the two things is if you show specifically groups donating to children or causes that support/aid children as their primary function.

    If you have to ask a question like this, you shouldn't be in charge of neither a pet nor a human.

    Figures - because you have no knowledge of the difference (particularly in terms of emotional intelligence) between a cat and a human.

    Humans are cursed with the ability to analyze the past, present and future to the point where they can find satisfaction in life even without the physical ability to live it. Old people who have lost all but their basic cognitive functions and live in pain everyday can still find joy in life from experience pleasurable things - seeing sexual images, watching their children get married and prosper, smelling their favourite food, hearing their favourite song which resonates emotionally with them etc.

    Cats don't have this. Neither do dogs. Animals live in the moment, so when the remaining moments of their life are going to be ****, pain-filled, stagnant bore-fests they don't have the ability to look past that and enjoy life anymore.

    So, by your reasoning, if a person decides there is no joy in the things you listed (etc) then they should be able to opt for assisted suicide. Also, the person is the best judge of what they are willing to tolerate, so they should be able to have an advanced directed saying to end it all (based on their own predetermined criteria, right?

    I mean after all, you do not think you are the judge of what a person can or cannot experience joy in......

    You have never seen a dog that is in pain wag it's tail upon hearing a friendly word?

    Myself, I am a human being and if I am in intractable pain, I would want someone to end my suffering. Thankfully, I will be able to do that legally when the time comes.

    I'd like to posit the adoption and foster care rates as evidence that they do not care about the children once they are born.
    I'd also like to posit the high risk of abuse that orphans and foster care children experience as evidence they do not care about children after they are born.

    The fact that we have foster care and group homes for orphans could be evidence that some do care about what happens to born children. But those types of charity would come to be regardless of the abortion issue imo.
    Well their personal charity is admirable but...

    1. Let's see them vote for benefits for single parent families, poor families and those forced to give birth under anti-abortion laws. No 'bootstrap' excuses; society demands they give birth so society helps in the result.
    2. Lets see them stand firm for the voting rights of minorities to whom many of the births will take place
    3. lets the them demand a commensurate investment in education all the way to college and beyond if necessary
    4. lets see greater support for healthcare

    talk the talk? walk the walk.

    That doesn't even approach the bounds of logic, and it's morally deplorable. Poverty is usually temporary, and even so the children in it still have a desire to live. So no, you're not doing that child a favour by killing it. Nice try though.

    Poverty is subjective anyway. The lower class in America lives way better than the upper class in most countries. Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg could quite easily look at us working class people and say that we're living in poverty and therefore our lives don't matter. Ultimately what you're doing is determining the value of one's life by their social class.
    That's exactly what many fiscal conservatives believe anyway. They worship the ultra-rich as much as they worship fetuses.

    Yeah, as much as I believed in trickle down way back when...trickle down did little to help out those in need. We are losing our middle class and making millionaires into billionaires.

    Those that abort are usually poor or working poor - housing insecure. A day or two wage away from losing a place to live. They are also more likely than not to be struggling to care for a child at home .

    On some level I do not think most of the ultra rich give a rat's ass about the fetus. They use pro-life folks as a voting block rather than anything else. They will say what they need to say to stay rich. YMMV. I mean seriously....does anyone believe Trump is really pro-life (other than on paper) . How many mistresses had he paid off to abort. It looks like he even urged Marla Maples to abort (Tiffany).
