    You provided a half-baked example which does not stand up to any form of empirical, scientific, moral, or legal scrutiny.

    You were incapable of even making the slightest inroads to do so.

    And you couldnt counter them...you went off on tangents and moved the goalposts...as noted.

All I did was kill her favourite parasite - no different to if she had a bacteria farm and I flushed it down the toilet. What's the big deal? Would you happily defend me in court for adopting your view on the value of a fetus, or would you perhaps seek a more severe punishment for doing something which you know yourself is wrong and putrid?

    You want to draw the line on human life but you can't even get your damn story straight. I detest your ideas and everything they stand for.
    When you answer my question directly and honestly, I'll return the courtesy.

    You still refused to answer the questions on 'who says,' and 'what authority'.

    You cannot be serious. Besides the fact that you have no idea who Lursa is, are you seriously comparing a zef living inside of and attached to the body of a woman, potentially putting her at risk and causing her great pain/discomfort to an adult needing medical care that anyone who has the qualifications and consents can provide?

    Lursa has said no such thing. Why lie about her?

    False. A pre-viable fetus is completely dependent on its bio mothers bodily life systems to survive.

    If the pregnant woman dies and her bodyís life systems cease to function the previable fetus will also die even if removed quickly and given the very best medical care.

    If the fetus is viable and pregnant bio mom dies, the viable fetus has a good chance of surviving if removed quickly and given medical care if needed. A nurse, the father, a grandparent, foster parent, adoptive parent or another caretaker can feed and take care of the infant.
    When it comes to matters of Reproductive health, Politicians and the religious dogma of another faith should never interfere with religious liberty of an individual or her faith.

    If it isn't viable outside of the mother, even with heroic super-measures, it's a fetus, and not an independent separate life.
    A premature baby can be saved, a 12 week or 16 week fetus cannot.
    The most premature baby in history was apparently 21 weeks, a true miracle.

    And apart from that, there are plenty of instances where a late term and "otherwise viable" BABY will not survive anyway except in unthinkable agony with zero hope of improvement.
    To insist such pain and agony be prolonged because of religious zealotry is despicable when the humane thing to do would be to terminate such a doomed pregnancy.

    Most so called "pro-lifers" are hypocrites.
    No one takes pregnancy termination casually or nonchalantly.
    Well, Checkeboard Strangler, be careful when you make categorical statements like "no one." I would point you to Irene Vilar, a self-proclaimed "abortion addict," who generated a bit of buzz with her bizarre and rather creepy story. If you have fifteen abortions within sixteen years for your own pleasure, I would say you are treating the matter of pregnancy rather casually.

    Perhaps you should modify it to "No woman in her right mind takes pregnancy termination casually or nonchalantly."

    Itís in the small things that the rot starts. Do the wrong thing once, itís easier to do it again. Do the individualistic thing once, it is easy to do it again.

    Sure, soon as every STOP sign on the planet includes the word "YOU" because obviously a stop sign is actually saying "YOU stop".

    A clearly mentally ill individual should not be the standard bearer for determining a woman's right to the use of her own organs. Or, should we begin with throwing Roe into the trash, and then force conservative males who support ending Roe to be the first to donate one of their kidneys, and one of their lungs, and one of their retinae, and a portion of their livers, to not remove the right to life for those in their communities that are in need?

    That's the thing I don't get with these pro life zealots. They literally have no idea what undoign Roe could lead to. And if I am in a revanchist mood, I will absolutely lobby for this to become law immediately.
