I mean, who thinks that stuff up??? And these are the wonderful citizens who constitute the Republican party right now, for the most part. Backwards, ill-educated, ignorant saps who believe in magic and don't give a rat's batootie about those who are less fortunate than themselves.
Wrong!

We do have a date, or guideline of when someone gets fourteenth amendment rights. It is when someone is born. The republican agenda is to put the date at moment of conception.

Voter Suppression Returns Voting rights and partisan practices
The recent wave of ID laws (and their cousins) bears a close resemblance to past episodes of voter suppression, particularly those of the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. The laws seem tailored less to guarantee the integrity of elections than to achieve a partisan purpose; the targeted constituencies—those directly affected by the laws—tend, once again, to be the poor, the less advantaged, or members of minority groups. It may not be a coincidence that the phrase “voter suppression”—like “vote suppression” in the 1880s—has become a prominent part of our political vocabulary during an era of large-scale immigration and in the wake of a dramatic extension of voting rights to African Americans.

Bull Puppy!
You present ID to get your meds at Wal-mart, beer, and smokes at 7/11... You can show it at the polls!
We just want to stop illegals, dead people, and pets from voting for Obama... as they did before!
Voter Fraud is bad no matter the party!
Just give us a warning... we'll get out pets to vote too!
(No... I take that back... two wrongs don't make a RIGHT!)

It was an "Invalid/illigitimate " check!
I hope that cleared up the POINT for you!
Reading comprehension... very important!
Is dipstick like tard, where you are just trying to save his soul or where you being nasty. Just wondering you being a GenuineChristian, one never knows when it is hate or love you peeps are expressing, for instance when I say, blow me, I do not use it for an expression of love it is more like I am saying dumbass which makes people mad when they realize its true, any way just wondering what your veiws are on that tard vs dipstick stuff.

Do you think the 15 Million the are in the country Illegally should be allowed to vote... Do you think I should be allowed to vote for the guy down the road that is out of town and is not going to vote?
None of which has to do with voter ID. One already must be a citizen and registered.

<quoted text>With that view then every individual convicted of murder for the killing of a fetus should be released from jail or their convictions overturned and retried for assault with bodily injury. The same as if someone kick another and damaged a kidney which had to be removed.

Scott Peterson only committed one murder and should not have been tried for 2...
If the mother plans to have the baby then it should be treated as a person. If she does decides to get an abortion then it is part if her body. The logic is just as simple. The decision rests with the mother and the State cannot interfere.

Please explain to me why you are "of the view that human life has intrinsic value" and why we must not "devalue" human life.
What possible "intrinsic" value is there? We are only clever animals.
Are animals' lives intrinsically valuable also? As valuable as humans?
What would they say if they could speak? "Don't eat me for dinner?"
Since you always deal in evidence and facts, I must say that I am surprised at the statement "what those that can not speak Would say if they could."
Most likely they would say, "Leave me here. It's comfortable. Not like the world outside."
Many animals are more self aware than even new born babies. Self awareness is one way a person may put an idea of intrinsic value on a being.
A fetus is not self aware.

God, this is a muddy topic, but it's fascinating too.
The problem is in agreeing on a standard. I don't believe in souls therefore it is silly to me to say that an abortion causes any harm to the unborn. Until they have actually developed the ability to be feel and be aware then no harm can possibly be done to them since "they" don't yet exist as a person. But it is hard to pinpoint when that is. Probably impossible.
If you totally ignore the woman as a human being then your logic is good. And the logic of conservatives in general is good. But when you introduce the woman into the equation things become more complicated. You are weighing the rights of an established human being against a potential human being. Complex, muddy issue.
And when the potential mother is also a child I think the problem becomes far more urgent.
I default to the woman since she's here already. If she doesn't want to have a baby then it's her choice.
And to quote that weird guy form the movie "That's all I have to say about that."
"ability to be feel and be aware"
They DO feel early in the Womb!
Search for the video where the baby tries to get away from the murdering bastard that is killing him!
Geesh... you guys just want to hump n dump, and NOT be responsible for your actions of lust!
SICK!

<quoted text>
Because I am Human I consider Human Life to have intrinsic value, to have the view that it does not have such is the first step into rationalizing genocide, mass murder as justifiable...
Yes all life has Intrinsic value, from the single cell extremophile in a boiling acid bath to the Clover in the front yard to You and me.. The value we as a species give each of those varies.... But since I am Human I place more value on Human Life than I do a cow... Of course the cow would disagree....
As for the "Leave me here it's comfortable" I agree that Human Being would rather stay there being comfortable until space becomes an issue and it becomes uncomfortable and they decide to leave... I don't think that Human Being would say hey just kill me already...
My point has always been a matter of Logic.. I make my position based on only that... I am an atheist so there is no religious aspect to my view and it's really a simple view... Precedent has been set under the law that a fetus is a Human Being, a Homosapien.... That precedent is set when anyone is prosecuted for killing a fetus and convicted for Homicide (the killing of a Homosapien by another Homosapien)... Since under the law a fetus is a Human Being then to kill it is Homicide by definition and should require that it be Justified under the law... Some forms of homicide are justifiable, some are not... But I don't think the Homicidal should be the ones to make that call...
To allow the homicidal that think human life has no intrinsic value to do the determination of justification is a basis for rationalizing the extermination of masses of human beings... That mindset gave us eugenics, forced sterilizations, genocide and selective breeding programs in history....
Another Great post!

Maybe if you allow us to call Christianity 'myth', we could teach it as a historical myth as we do Greek mythology?
Problem is, your people insist we teach the bible as if were not a myth.

Someone is given All the protections of the Constitution or None... The Constitution Never Gives Rights, It's codifies and protects rights we had all along.... First 3 are preeminent ... Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness... And no where does it suggest, set a date when a zigot becomes a Human Being upon which those protections we as a people have considered important enough to codify.

I could care less what republican, democrat, independent, socialist, marxist, baptist, catholic or wicca agendas are... If it's a Human Being as considered by the Laws of our nation it gets full Constitutional Protections... And until the courts set a date certain from conception to the day of last breath that one becomes a Human Being then Abortion is Homicide.. As such each case would require Justification in court... I have never stated that abortion should not be legal, Only that as long as anyone can be convicted of Murder of a fetus it is by precedent a Human Being and the killing of it is Homicide and under our laws requires justification... Codified Justification... Otherwise we are allowed the homicidal to self justify their own homicides....
