Outstanding comment. Don't forget they forget all about the children once they are brought into the world. No medicine health care food education shelter. Just kids. This is what happens when nazi's run the country.

This whole thing makes me sick! It is embarrassing for us as a country.

I agree.

"The Party of Family Values" only really cares about families if they have a monetary value

The way I explain the why a woman shoudl always have th right to choose is that it is more dangerous to the mother's life to carry a pregnancy to term than it is to have an abortion. So, when people want to force a woman to take on an additional risk to her life against her will to give birth to a child she doesn't want, I think that is a clear demonstration of overt oppression. It certainly isn't freedom!

BTW, you can safely tell any religious zealots that the bible defines life as beginning with the first breath, or "the breath of life". If they try to counter it, then you can always ask, "Are you sayign that parts of the bible are wrong?"

Check mate. Game. Set. Match.

They'll argue with you anyway. It's what they do.

I don't give the buybull authority over me so I don't give a crap what buybull thumpers think. I want the buybull out of women's uteruses. (uteri?)

@MARDUK That may be nice in theory, but I don't think we understnd enough about human development and what is provided in the womb, to know how to create it artificially. Even once we think we do now enough, we probably won't.

Don't get me wrong, I am all for equality...

However, producing designer children, to me seems to be a bot too similar to eugenics to me. Eugenics and the development of a "master race" which motivated the Nazis in WWII led to a great deal of oppression and inequality... not to mention genocides.

When it comes to potential futures everythign has a positive and negative side to consider.

I think it would be more productive, in terms of moving towards equality to find a way to implant embryos into men, so they go through pregnancy and carrying a child. From the technology perspective this is more doable at a lesser expense for research and a lesser monetary expense of fetus development, so unlike options of designer children, it would not be as limited to the very rich in terms of who coudl afford it.
