    Because it’s not an answer.

    —Do you think a woman should be able to abort a full term viable fetus that is 75% out of the birth canal?

    —I think that is a decision to be made between a woman and her doctor...

    A libertarian isn’t anti-law. I’m a lawyer, remember? Is a law prohibiting rape “more government regulation” I should oppose because I’m a libertarian?

    I believe in the mother’s rights, but I also believe in the child’s rights. Her rights stop where the child’s rights start. Where does the child’s right to life eclipse the mother’s right not to be inconvenienced?

    Where do you draw the line?

    No Democrat running for national office is willing to be honest about it so they all revert to the focus group tested line about a woman and her doctor making health care decisions.

    It’s a big fat lie. If her doctor says “nah” do
    Democrats really think that should be the last word? C’mon dude. Don’t be obtuse. They are only talking about doctors who believe in abortion on demand, often even children surviving outside the womb. Feel free to google “abortion survivors”
    and “Kermit Gosnell”.

    Then there’s this: Mass. AG Healey Joins Lawsuit Against Rule Allowing Clinicians To Refuse Abortions

    Of course it’s a meaningless platitude. If you can’t see that, then be honest about the blue state goggles you’re wearing.

              Think Fox is made overzealous by having to "shout" down so many blatant lies from the 'samestream' media.
              Fox tells you that it is their opinion and other times news is presented in ways you can add your own interpretation.
              All in all, it is obvious to me that, compared to other networks, Fox believes their info is truthful and presents it without the blitzkrieg of lockstep marching. . MSM knows they spew falsehoods for propaganda swaying. Truth or accuracy gets in their way. And even after being exposed, with more truth to come, they double up on more lying.?? Fox backs the stuff it presents with valid and vettable sources. MSM backs their stuff with heresay-innuendo or nothing.

              This all started to help Hillary. 2 weeks before he was to testify against the Clinton Foundation Eberwein (Haitian ex-official) killed by headshot (declared suicide?)
              Hell, Mifsud has been missing for 8 months now. That hints that he knows key incriminating evidence. DNC official back in October told reporter on video that DNC thinks he might be dead.?? Diligently chase this out to it's beginning to reach the ending. Put all questions and doubts to rest in front of the American people.

              As an absolute it is simplistic. But it does signal leaning more to women's rights vs rights of the fetus.

              I understand some doctors could abuse the intent of the balance of late term abortions, but the alternative is to force mothers to bring all late term pregnancies to fruition no matter the health risks involved, because some believe it is "too hard" for mere mortals to decide and only "God" should make that decision.

              What about Mayor Pete's other response types given by ADG? As per your wont, you cherry picked the simplest one to attack and you've already had more specific discussion with ADG about your cherry picked item than Mayor Pete will ever give in response or an open "town hall." Typical.

                So, perhaps the take on the posting of recipes would be a subtle message to 'simmer down'? :grin:

                  Usually, when someone responds by attempting to change the subject, it often means that they lack the ability to contribute, intellectually, with the subject matter.

                    Mr. Skendzel, 11th Grade English teacher... Old, first generation Russian-Jewish immigrant. Taught me more about the English language and writing than anyone. Taught proper use of e.g. vs. i.e. and use of n.b. (which is all but dead today and people always ask me "what does 'n.b.' mean?) and it drives crazy when people use them improperly. 10 new words with etymology each day. Also gave me my start in Russian. Second most demanding teacher I've ever had just slightly behind Dr. Sturgill's WWII course at UF... history majors took Gannon (famous author) in droves and avoided Sturgill like the plague.

                    If you consider a two week old embryo an "innocent child" then absolutely not.

                      I do. As much as I consider an acorn has the ability to become an oak tree.

                      Do you consider mowing over an acorn the same as sawing down a 50 year old oak tree?

                        I caught the end of Hannity last night(can't watch his whole show as it's pretty repetitive)but this topic came up and he told Geraldo pretty clearly that he knew there were several people working for Fox who pretty much despised his every word....

                        What cracks me up is lboy basically saying "Fox is monolithic" for years, then starts a thread demonstrating exactly the opposite. Typical.
