Who knows what happens to Clark's delegates?

I know it depends on how many dedicated versus SUPER you have. Super aren't tied to you and can vote for anyone they want at the convention and Dean has TONS of those, double Edwards I noticed.

John Kerry supports late-term abortion.

Facts about abortion:
5 weeks - The embryo's tiny heart has begun beating. The neural tube enlarges into three parts, soon to become a very complex brain.

7 weeks - Facial features are visible, including a mouth and tongue. The eyes have a retina and lens. The major muscle system is developed, and the unborn child practices moving (MOVING). The child has its own blood type, distinct from the mother's. These blood cells are produced by the liver now instead of the yolk sac (means it is functioning).

8 weeks - The tiny person is protected by the amnionic sac, filled with fluid. Inside, the child swims and moves gracefully. The arms and legs have lengthened, and fingers can be seen. The toes will develop in the next few days. Brain waves can be measured.

10 weeks - The heart is almost completely developed and very much resembles that of a newborn baby. An opening the atrium of the heart and the presence of a bypass valve divert much of the blood away from the lungs, as the child's blood is oxygenated through the placenta. Twenty tiny baby teeth are forming in the gums.


12 weeks - Vocal chords are complete, and the child can and does sometimes cry (silently). The brain is fully formed, and the child can feel pain. The fetus may even suck his thumb. The eyelids now cover the eyes, and will remain shut until the seventh month to protect the delicate optical nerve fibers.

All of this within the time frame of legal standard abortion. It swims, cries, moves that is not the criteria for a disorganized clump of cells.

-John Kerry is also a war criminal.

I edited that post because of the term "Baby Killer"

It is not appropriate and not funny, as for the claims of war criminal then back it up with evidence.

Apparantly I'm a baby killer as well, even though I've never killed a baby. Talk about reactionary.

He actually didn't even know this "evidence" until KrazyJethro provided it on another thread. Obviously he can't be bothered to do his own research.

this quote "All of this within the time frame of legal standard abortion. It swims, cries, moves that is not the criteria for a disorganized clump of cells."

Is actually a personal one of KrazyJethro, not from the site the info came from, which shows just how much he really read it.
Don't you think you should give credit to the original author of these quotes? It was actually another member here for Christ's sake and you passed it off as your own.

Indeed John.

The right to choose should remain, Republicans are against state controlling everyday lives unless it suits their own agenda. Abortion, Sex Ed, Taxes.

These are the same people who teach abstinence in schools instead of how to use a condom and other protection methods. Studies have shown that those who swear oathes of virginity are more likely to break that in college and have unprotected sex.

The right to choose should remain, who the hell do you think you are to tell someone they can or cannot manipulate their own body? It is the mothers prerogative and always will be.

The law is sketchy, i think the major stumbling block is the fact the baby is not a U.S. Citizen until its born, therefor has no real rights.

I support EXTREMELY late term abortion!!!

Some facts about late term:

At 936 weeks some people start making off topic threads about abortion where they don't belong...

At 1144 weeks they get so annoying people want to extend abortion to early twenties....

At 3120 weeks they are too old to procreate themselves, and couldn't carry a baby as a man anyway, so they run for President and try to outlaw reproductive rights...

That's right. I'm pro Abort Bush 2004.

I never passed it off as my own.


Give credit where it is due.

And again i ask you to provide evidence of Kerry being a war criminal, an accusation of that level requires backing up or consequences will be coming you're way.

I want to hear more about the "SILENT SCREAM!"



Is that the same sound Nessie makes when you don't see her? Or the sound of Big Foot NOT tromping in the woods?

"Silent Scream" Gawd I miss the Roe v Wade boards sometimes. Little brainwashed Baptist girls posting fetal poetry.

Mommy, Mommy? Why did you kill me?

Aaaaaaaa haaaaaaaa haaaaaaaaa. Fetal poetry... Hey if they can scream they write poetry? Right?

Well why don't they get a damn job and pay rent then? Ahhhhhhhhh haaaaaaaaa... man, I need to go beat up on some real pro lifers. It's Valentines Day.. they'll all be on the boards bitching about girls not keeping their legs closed. Gawd you guys are lame.

I think it's terribly irresponsible to have staff that bypass the censor system by using BBCode [i][/i] tags and insult members terribly over an opinion.


You followed suite. In fact you done it far more than I did and have actually carried it on for two days. I actually forgot about you the minute I left the computer yesterday. Yet you're still crying about it today, if you think I'm such an idiot I don't get why you can't get over me.

Technically, I didn't do the method you did. I used the null space.

And I only followed suit since because a staff member did it, it must be okay for me to do it right? You're setting a bad example for members. Not only did you do it once, you did it repeatedly as well.

You're going to blame the movies for violence next.

Be a man and take responsibility for your own actions.

I am taking responsibillity for my own actions.

I'm just saying it's highly irresponsible for you to be behaving that way considering you are a staff member.

No backseat moderating.

Johns actions have been noticed and dealt with by myself and another person, the situation and argument have been taken into account.

You taking advantage of things like this do not weigh well, there is no such thing as a technicality on ATS.
