It's a good size fire but strangely, full of the lowest of the low in primitive land. At least from what I could see.

53. see #51-- women can't have it both ways....
 Rather than speaking about who has rights over who's body, I think it's also a matter of who has rights over who's reproductive opportunities. If it is true that male partners have no rights over their female partners' bodies, then it's also true that female partners have no rights regarding where male partners seek their reproductive opportunities, i.e. whom they share sperm with.

15. Men can't die in childbirth. n/t 
 


This thread/poll made it to wizbang and they managed to capture some common sense before it apparently got flushed -
One person challenged the DU abortion gospel:

TheWraith: The right to at the very least talk to someone and try to persuade them to a different course isn't a violation of anybody's rights, and pretending like the woman in this scenario is some weak-willed moron incapable of taking dissenting opinions is mommy-knows-best protectionism at its worst.

By the way, you both seem to operate on the implicit idea that getting pregnant is something nasty that men do to women, and that women are powerless to stop--conveniently forgetting that women have several times more contraceptive options than men do. Try giving the women you're talking about measures of credit and responsibility as well as sympathy. In case anybody forgot, it takes two people to make babies. The idea that maybe both sides of that interaction should at least have input on the final decision is not unreasonable.

No, my friends, there’s only one really progressive idea. And that is the idea of legally limiting the power of the government. That one genuinely liberal, genuinely progressive idea — the Why in 1776, the How in 1787 — is what needs to be conserved. We need to conserve that fundamentally liberal idea. That is why we are conservatives. --Bill Whittle

This is a topic that got me banned for life from another liberal board.  Apparently the females on the board didn't like me saying they couldn't have the opportunity to get pregnant without my swimmers therefore I should have SOME say in whether my baby is aborted or not.   :whatever:

Of course they don't have a problem putting a man on the hook for 18 years in the form of monthly payments......

I beg to differ...give a woman in her 36th hour of labor a reasonably sharp object... :-)

Sharp? Pffft. If my labor had lasted that long, I could have killed with a plastic spoon.

Of course, most of the women who have an abortion probably don't even know who her baby's Daddy is.

I'm surprised any DUmmies picked this option.  This seems like the option used by DUmmie administrators to tombstone the DUmmies who choose it.

Since condoms don't work 100% of the time, this is actually a vote for abstinence and we all know "only reich wing reTHUGlicans" believe in abstinence.
