Re: Why does the left view abortion as such a sacred right?

Except that Roe v. Wade was not treated as an "equal rights" issue by the Supreme Court; rather, it was treated as a privacy issue with the court finding that the 4th Amendment contains within it a right to privacy and that prohibitions on abortion would violate said right to privacy. I rarely hear ...

Re: Why does the left view abortion as such a sacred right?

Please don't put words into my mouth - I very clearly stated earlier in this thread that instances where the behavior that led to pregnancy was not by choice (ie, crime) were separate instances that I wasn't going to debate in this post. And I would suggest having sex is "bad behavior" if you're not...

Re: Why does the left view abortion as such a sacred right?

in your mind - neither should ever have sex unless they have chosen to become a father and mother when their baby is born. I would slightly re-word that, but yes. In my view, neither should have sex unless they are prepared for the possibility of becoming parents. And in adding to that, I would say...

Re: Why does the left view abortion as such a sacred right?

The pill doesn't work 100% of the time and voila, abortion solved that problem. So how did we get from there to abortion being a cure-all to all unwanted pregnancies, regardless of whether any precautions whatsoever were taken to avoid the pregnancy in the first place? It just strikes me as a compl...

Re: Why does the left view abortion as such a sacred right?

And if the court rules that a right exists under your Constitution. even though it isn't specifically referenced, doesn't that right have the same weight as one that was added by amendment? You're essentially correct. A court-determined right as contained within the Constitution has the same force ...

Re: Why does the left view abortion as such a sacred right?

Nausea and vomiting... So basically you view pregnancy as a disease or sickness? Kinda pathetic that in order to justify your pro-choice stance that you have to treat a fetus as if it were a cancerous tumor inside of a woman's body. All pregnant females make their choice to remain pregnant. And now...

Re: Why does the left view abortion as such a sacred right?

In response to your question, hasn't your Supreme Court already decided that abortion is a right under your Constitution? Doesn't that make it just as sacred as the right to free speech, or the right to bear arms? The right to free speech and the right to bear arms are explicitly spelled out as rig...

Re: Why does the left view abortion as such a sacred right?

Thanks for completely not answering my question. I asked why abortion is the left's sacred cow. Again - as I pointed out, people on the left have no problem with the government getting their nose into everyone else's' business when it comes to literally any other topic. But abortion? An absolute rig...

Why does the left view abortion as such a sacred right?

Most people on the left have no problem with all kinds of government regulations on virtually every aspect of life, EXCEPT for abortion. These are the same people who tout things like "common sense gun control," but when it comes to abortion, many want literally no rules or regulations whatsoever. H...

Re: ABC revives two more game shows: Press Your Luck and Card Sharks

Having now watched all 3 episodes, the format needs to be a half hour and the cash amounts in the final round (second round of the classic game) need to be increased. I would take the original amounts from the 1980s version and times them all by 10, so big bucks would be 30,000 / 40,000 / 50,000 plu...

Re: WSGW programming changes

Based on the tone of the article, it sounds like getting rid of Glen Beck wasn't even a close call - he appears to have been the first to get the axe. Not sure I understand the logic of ditching Fox Sports overnight on 100.5 and replacing it with Coast-to-Coast since Coast-to-Coast is already broadc...

Re: Keep America Great

Both sides are equally guilty of looking the other way when their guy does something wrong. However, this paranoia about how Trump is literally the beginning of the end of the world seems to be unique to the left. There were certainly people who believed that Obama was going to be downfall of our re...

4% of all Priests have been accused. 96% have not. So you are factually incorrect.
