Does anyone else find it fascinating that the rabid Right...

makes statements about the right to kill anyone who threatens them, or the right to kill anyone who makes them "feel" threatened, talk about killing others who would restrict certain types of weapons, and endorse and salivate over the death penalty....but will protect a life of a fetus under any and all circumstances?

1. Prolife=cutting food-aid to families, cutting healthcare, executing inmates, & sending kids to war.

ETA: Destroying the environment, polluting our rivers & drinking water.

4. The underlying theme is fear and control.

They want to control those who are not aligned with their 'values' and disagree with them. And if they can't, just shoot them because they're afraid.

Pregnant victims of rape and incest are also innocents who have done nothing wrong.

7. haa haa haa

seriously?

You are trying to tell me that the fetus' life always trumps?

That everyone else killed was a warranted killing because the killer has decided they are guillty of not being an innocent?

I made no mention of my position on the issue.

YOU asked if we found it fascinating. I understand their argument so it is NOT "fascinating" to me one bit.

8. Sometimes abortion is the more ethical choice. Are you 'prolife' in cases of rape or incest?

Last edited Thu Jan 24, 2013, 03:02 PM - Edit history (1)

is anyone really pro abortion or are they really pro choice?


I am much more pro free birth control, to avoid having to make the difficult choice...but that's just another thread.

22. Sigh

 

You do not have to do something in order to support that something. I am pro gay marriage but I will never marry another guy nor would I even consider "forcing my spouse" to marry another woman against her wishes.

Abortion is a medical procedure. I have nothing against a woman having an abortion. I believe it should be legal.

25. Which brings us back to the the OP

 

The left asks how can the right be pro-life when they support the death penalty.
The right asks how can the left be pro-choice when they support forcing others to pay.

Fact is, there is hypocrisy in both positions.

Your fishing expedition is getting silly now.

Anybody who takes the time to listen to the arguments from both sides of the issue knows the reasoning: tax dollars.

20. In case you're sincere...

in wanting to engage at this board according to the terms, I suggest you consider new terminology.

No one is pro abortion. It isn't something people WANT to have happen. People don't LIKE abortion.

It's pro choice.

Although I don't understand how supporting a medical procedure can be considered wrong, I appreciate the advice.

premise of Judeo-Christian belief. That fetus is guilty as hell.

13. That premise

Now seems to fly in the face of the Catholic Churches latest pronouncement,through attorneys in court proceedings,that fetus's are not people,or alive after all......

That developement is something I do find fascinating.....

to keep the conflicting BS straight in their own minds.

I never thought about your point; it's very thought-provoking.

Ignorance really is bliss. My head would explode if I had to adhere to their way of being in this world.

11. I think the rabid right, being a collection that is easily lead has something to do with it....

Rush Limpballs tells them, they right to kill anyone who threatens them. They believe.
The preacher tells them that fetuses are people. They believe.
The GOP owners tell them that 47% of the American population are useless eaters. They believe.
The foxes tell them that the gubberment gonna take their guns. They believe.
The echo chamber enforces their self righteous attitude.
The 'bubble' ensures they see only what the want to see.
Add a goodly amount of hate, pride and prejudices into the mix. And there you have it.

Perfectly capable of killing a doctor to protect a fetus, while laughing at the homeless and waiting for the day they can back off an A-10 Warthog with a pea shooter.
It's all OK because they live the good life and fight the good fight. See above.
