Full two piece bikini, or just the top half?
I'm not buying the conspiracy, but I do think it should be an individual decision to add fluoride to one's intake.
The choice of who one shares sexual relations with is not critical to the Olympics, but how far down this road is the declaration of sexual identity to be accepted as whatever the athlete says they are? I foresee creation of an additional category of "transgendered" added to the current "mens" and "womens".
Many states have laws that allow a mother to take her infant to a fire station, hospital, or similar location and abandon it without any penalty. That law should be extended to the viable fetus as well. As the mother plans to "abandon" it at an abortion clinic, they could instead be required to deliver it live and let it become a ward of the state.
Ken, you brought mothers in when you espoused the right of a mother to kill an unborn child.
For any reason!
Do you support her right to abuse the child within her as well?
The birth mother of my boys was a perfect candidate for multiple abortions. Not yet in her teens when abandoned, she gave birth three times in four years. She neglected her children so badly they bear permanent scars in brain development. Yet they are intelligent, loving, beloved, and with good care and the blessing they will be productive citizens, make a worthy contribution to society. Should they have been put to death?
If there is any young woman out there who has an unwanted pregnancy, please think of the wonderful person your baby can become. There is no shortage of good people who would welcome your child into their homes, into their lives, and give it every chance to realize its potential. You will almost certainly have regrets about an abortion, may well be haunted by the decision. You will probably never regret giving life to the child, only maybe that you could not raise it yourself.
If a mother gives alcohol, nicotine or cocaine to an infant she is guilty of criminal child abuse. Is there any difference if it is given a week before birth? A month? Six months, when it is even more damaging? A pregnant woman is a guardian, the child itself is not a part of her body, It is a genetically distinct being. It depends on her for protection and nourishment just as it will after birth. Abuse in utero should be illegal, it is certainly immoral.
A fair question regarding abortion is at what point of development an unborn child becomes entitled to the same protection other children receive. Many states make that demarcation at "viability", the point at which the child can survive outside the uterus. Most states will charge two counts of homicide for killing a woman in late pregnancy. There have been cases of actions to protect fetuses from drug abuse by the mother.
The unborn child is a citizen before birth, exactly when that status is gained is the question.
Many loads get covered right after turning off US 40, that way the cover does not have to be secure against highway speed winds.
Costco anyone? It would save $6000 leakage annually just from my family. And of course if it was here most of the other half of my household expenditures would also be spent there saving me enough for a season pass or two. If I am near average that would be many millions each year and a big fraction of that in the form of savings spent at other local businesses.
