so the father has no say in this at all? it's his child just as much as it is yours. If you don't want the burden don't have sex.


Need I bring up the staggering rate of absentee fathers in america?

Need I remind you that it takes two to make a baby, not just the woman?

Need I bring up the fact that men dont carry babies?

I do believe the father should have a voice, but the "dont want it, close your legs" argument holds about as much water as a colander....

Ha! That's because you posted 2 minutes after the thread started! You couldn't have watched it! Way to prove your point... As for telling one what is right, I think murder for inconvenience is always immoral no matter what. And what about the Babies Choice? O wait, i forgot to dehumanize it first so it makes it easier, sorry. What about the "fetus, mistake, bad choice, accident"'s choice?

Your reading comprehension is well proven. As I already said, I watched 2 minutes of it. I saw the propaganda from the very start, and needed nothing more from it.

Got anything of actual substance to say?

Thats really dumb.

What has Iraq got to do with it? I know it was a joke but it wasn't even funny.. I couldnt give a sht about the war in iraq. Since when is drafting the norm with the war? why would the baby have to go fight?

Pointless joke

so other boys actions should have a direct influence on me? that's like saying muslims were responsible for 9/11 so ALL muslims are horrible ppl and should be treated as such.

I saw this awful "movie" a while ago. I don't really care which side you're on, comparing abortion to the holocaust is just offensive. Not to mention that he basically walks up to people and twists their words around to try to trick them into agreeing with him.

Question: when is it ok to kill a baby in the womb?

Answer: any time before the baby develops consciousness.

If you think the moment the egg and sperm fuse that Human consciousness is spawned, you are just naive.


Pop Quiz! If you one day find yourself in the hospital what is the one medical statistic used to determine if you are alive or not? Consciousness? Bzzzzzzzt sorry that is incorrect. The correct answer is: HEARTBEAT. The baby has one, it's alive.


False. The main criterion is brain death defined as an irreversible end of all brain activity.

This fact fits in neatly with ChaoticOrders view.

I'm not really sure what you are trying to get at here. As I have said, i believe the father should have a voice. But it is simply not as cut and dry as you try to make it.

And I'm really not sure what the father's voice has to do with this thread....

Perhaps because you didn't watch it. OP post at 12:18 AM and you post 3 minutes later. You can not watch a 33 minute video in 3 minutes.

You labeled something you didn't even watch as propaganda.
Thanks for being so opened minded and all.

Do I really need to go over this for a third time? Why is it, i wonder, that the anti-abortion crowd continues to attack the poster, and not the topic? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm......

Its always about peoples beliefs, getting in the way of other peoples lives. We don't write policy based on religion, even though you would like it that way. We live in a country with religious freedom, so to take sides on any belief would be wrong. That is why it is a choice. And people wonder why there is no peace on earth

So then when does a baby develop consciousness? Also why is it that if you kill a pregnant woman you get charged with 2 counts of murder if it isn't human? I think its pretty ironic of you to call others naive when you think killing a human being is fine. A mothers womb is supposed to be the safest place for a human in the world. Yet it would be a very dangerous situation if you was a parent, because you might just feel one day you want to kill this life.

Thou shalt not kill. People who have an abortion should be charged with murder of the 1st degree.

Simple. The mother did not choose to abort. Meaning someone killed her fetus against her will. Not AT ALL the same thing as a mother CHOOSING to abort.

You would only be charged with double murder if the foetus would survive outside the womb, so obviously only in the later stages of pregnancy when a legal abortion isn't allowed anyway.

As for 'thou shalt not kill', I would say we need to look at the behaviour of the Western countries in the Middle East and then decide which we need to sort out first! There are plenty of other situations we need to resolve long before wanting to remove a woman's right to do what she wants with her own body.

This is your belief, and your entitled to your belief, you never have to be involved in any way with abortion,because you have a choice. Others who don't share your belief are entitled to do what they do. When we start controlling people based on our beliefs, thats when people start getting hurt.

Sure, you could not have saw the video for 2 minutes and wrote your post within the 2 minutes it took you to respond. As for reading level, hope you can understand this: PANTS ON FIRE!

Lower limit is 5th month, when brainwaves appear.




Also why is it that if you kill a pregnant woman you get charged with 2 counts of murder if it isn't human?


This varies based on state and trimester of pregnancy, often you get charged only with 1 count of murder.

turns out I did, so you're wrong. Why so fixated on this? Why not speak to the subject, and not attack a poster? No points to make, i take it?

Seriously, just sad...

Funny, your post is 3 minutes after the OP, and it's a 33 minute movie. You must have a time machine or something, if you can watch a 33 minute movie in 3 minutes.


As for the topic, I am glad there are abortions. I mean, most people who abort are probably not fit to be parents anyway, and would simply mistreat the kid. They're selfish people who have no responsibility for their actions, and will most likely create more criminals.


about 180 seconds was all I needed. It starts as pure propaganda. Thats all i needed to know.

So, you're saying you spent all day on here debating a video you never even watched? That's classic!
That reminds me of the "put him in a round room and tell him to piss in the corner" joke...
