Wednesday, March 13, 2019

A representative in the Georgia Statehouse is drafting a rather blunt response to legislation that would dictate when a woman could get an abortion.

What? Men don't like their bodies being regulated, their choices limited by government? Wow! It sure was ok for women to have to deal with this type of regulation of our choices. Man up guys, what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

Perhaps because women have no choice in the matter because the majority of legislators are men who make laws to control womens' bodies. I can't believe you don't get where this woman legislator is coming from or what she is trying to communicate to you.

There are clowns who have suggested that abortion be made illegal and some have suggested that a woman seeking one should be punished and sent to prison for getting one.

Come on people this is the 21st century.

I think that all people's DNA markers be harvested and recorded at birth and from that moment forward all products of conception have two parents and if the fetus is aborted two parents are responsible for it.
If jail is the punishment then both go to jail.
For repeat offenders sterilization is the punishment both are rendered sterile for their irresponsible behavior... make it a three strikes law.

No more "youthful indiscretions" passes allowed for either gender.
If a parent intervenes in anyway i.e. to pay for or arrange termination of a pregnancy the parent(s) will also be punished.

The government provides all birth control methods for all who need them.

Erectile dysfunction is just natures way of saying your sexual gratification days are over. It is not life threatening and therefore medications are not a medical necessity and should not be covered by insurance.

Ban fake tatas for E-V-E-R-Y-O-N-E.

Wow.

The crowd who wants big government to meddle in a woman's healthcare decisions seem inordinately angry about this proposed bill. Seems like it struck a nerve. (The question is whether the extreme reaction is over the thought of the government regulating MALE bodies, or just the visceral terror that they feel over the idea of losing access to viagra)

Also, Boaz, from what I have been able to find, about 25% of women get an abortion in their lifetime, while about 4% of women get breast implants. I am not a woman, but I am pretty sure they would be willing to give up breast implants in order to evict the government from interfering in their healthcare decisions while they are pregnant. Not that they should have to.

Keep suckin that straw man. Straws will likely be banned soon, and then what are you gonna do? I.don' see anyone taking this proposal remotely seriously. It's not only childish but extremely illogical and self contradictory, showing the person who wrote it doesn't know the difference between sex and pregnancy, or doesn't care while they ------- at how clever they are at "turning the tables" on men. Amateur fail.

She knows enough to consider that unless you are vacutaining sperm from the prostate of a corpse... pregnancy always occurs from a sexual act at some point in its inception.

I know guys spend a lot of time disassociating themselves from this fact... but it is a fact... even an amateur knows that.

Try using the head on your shoulders... if you can... when making your commentary...

Although... I can only imagine when you keep it up your rectum as you do... it probably hard to tell which one is in charge.

Not a strawman. What about my statement is inaccurate about the Republican position? They want to increase the scope of government so that it is involved in a woman's healthcare decisions related to pregnancy. In what way do you believe that statement is mis-stating the position (usually by making it more extreme)?

Just because you don't like the way it sounds when it is accurately described does not mean it is a logical fallacy. You cannot change the meaning of the term "strawman" the same way you did with "fake news" (to mean anything you disagree with).

"I.don' (sic) see anyone taking this proposal remotely seriously."

Then why does it make you soooo angry? You are right... this has pretty much no chance of passing. It is a political statement, not a serious bill. The only reason I can think of for your extreme emotional reaction is because it confronts you with the hypocrisy of allowing the government to dictate what a woman can or cannot do with her body, when trying to do the same thing to a man is such an obvious non-starter.

Or maybe you are just terrified by the thought of the possibility of there being ANY impediment to your access to Viagra. Hard to say. (that was an ad hominem, btw... in case you were wondering what an ACTUAL logical fallacy looked like)

When a man's body has a growing human being in it, then you can regulate it.

If this idiot wants these things in place, I say, whatever, lets have it so if a woman gets pregnant, she cant abort it until the man, who made 50% of the kid, says it's ok because he might want to raise the kid without the mother. That will stop women from just banging any man they please without thinking about it first.

I get the intent but it was done in a rather stupid way. None of the things she put in for comedic/reaction effect impact another living being. I am pro-abortion and I think women should be able to get them at any time. However, I can easily see from an objective nature that those against abortion are only against it because they believe they are protecting another life. To put it in a way that people should be able to understand, the US is a nation of protecting those who can't protect themselves (to what degree we actually practice that is a matter of opinion, of course). I want to be able to punch someone in the face if they piss me off but I can't do that. So, logically and relatedly, they are infringing what I am allowed to do with my body. You can't argue that it's there to protect people from being punched all the time without understanding that abortion laws are there to protect people from being killed.

Whether or not you agree that an unborn baby is a person is irrelevant to the debate, yet people still keep focusing only on the selfish aspect. What the people who use the "It's my body" rhetoric don't understand is that they are fighting the wrong battle, which ensures the debate will never die. The actual debate is about protecting people who can't protect themselves.

"Not a strawman. What about my statement is inaccurate about the Republican position? They want to increase the scope of government so that it is involved in a woman's healthcare decisions related to pregnancy.

The problem with your statement is you are saying this is something new. The government has been involved with women's healthcare decisions for a very long time. It's not "increasing the scope". The scope is already there. It's been there. Republicans are trying to protect those who can't protect themselves. Whether you agree they are actually protecting a person is the question, not whether or not the government should be able to tell us what we can/can't do with our bodies. I've already shown how they do that all the time for the greater good.

I agree that the government has been making decisions about a woman's body for a long time. Then Roe v Wade came about and the government DECREASED its scope (conservatives call that small government). Health decisions by a woman about her own body and the unborn child are/were to be made without government intervention. Now Republicans are attempting to INCREASE the scope back to what it was before (big government).

"Republicans are trying to protect those who can't protect themselves."

BS. When have Republicans ever cared about protecting those how can't protect themselves? The ONLY consistent thing about the Republican platform is that it ensures that the people in power (white males) continue to maintain that power regardless of how little they deserve it on their merits. They don't like women being all uppity and don't like that people can have sex as much as they want (that used to be a right reserved for rich people). So they try to "punish" sex and perpetuate the poverty cycle by forcing women to have children they don't want.

Lets take a guess at how many Trump fetuses have been scraped and flushed... probably enough to populate Queens.

"Not a strawman."

Of course it's a strawman. No one is regulating women's access to pornography or sexual aids, treating unfertlized eggs as human beings or punishing them for having unprotected sex.

"Then why does it make you soooo angry?"

The proposal itself does not make me angry. The stupidity behind it, which as I said will help Trump's chances of being reelected more than hinder it, annoys me greatly.

Actually menses without hormonal or mechanical interference usually means an ova was dropped but not fertilized... or f it was fertilized and it didn't take... so yeah technically it could represent and aborted effort at creation.
Achieving the big O isn't necessary for women to be impregnated... and we have all our eggs in two baskets at birth.

Every day 360,000 are added to to global population... 155,000 die... so every 28 days roughly 280,000 are added... more people than live in Anchorage Alaska.
In 15 years the planet will have 9 billion people making demands on its resources... that is 3X the population of what it was when I came of age.
Surely the world will not miss the few removed from the equation.

Seriously... and I mean seriously... all your anti abortion stances and sanctimonious references about saving lives are meaningless. You aren't doing anyone any favors.

Was she? It didn't seem like it, and unless I'm mistaken I've seen her make that argument before, equating wasted sperm with abortions. If I'm confusing her with another poster, then I'll apologize.

ONly a total dumbass believes that. Republicans are just plandering to the Evangelical Christian base, they don't give a crap about abortion. They know that any regulations of abortion won't apply to anyone who can afford to travel, those regulations only apply to poor women who can't afford to travel. Everyone with a brain understands this, only absolute fools think otherwise.
