There you go with that "progressive" left again. Sorry, but I'm about as left as you can get yet I support the death penalty for definitive "monsters" with no appeals. (that or an island and a hand full of seeds to grow food) I don't support lawyers that twist the truth and/or split hairs to gain a verdict and I defintiely don't support our prison system. (privatization). Is it possible you confuse Democrats with Progressives? Both the left and the right have equal responsibility for our current legal system.
Actually we are almost to the point where fetal tissue is not needed….almost. PP did nothing illegal as has been shown in multiple investigations. Nothing private entities don't also do. Is it disgusting, yes, immoral, maybe, illegal, no. For some reason, for you, when a government agency does something it's wrong, but when a private entitiy does the same thing for profit it's okay.
I've never quite understood your definition of a "progressive", but by the standard def, I am definitely one and I believe in accountability for all, including corporations and governments. You didn't address holding private corps that are in the fetal tissue business and the treatments that the research has brought. Do you hold them accountable to the same level as PP? Do you reject any of the treatments developed by this research for you and yours? BTW-do you include corps on "government assistance" in your drug testing program? Those holding office? If you treat ALL receiving government money, then I have no problem with drug testing. If it's just the poor, no. What they get is a drop in the bucket.
I assume all those that want to shut down PP also want to shut down the corporations that buy their fetal tissue, the private companies that sell fetal tissue, and all the research facilities that use the tissue. I also assume that you will decline any treatment that fetal tissue reseach resulted in for yourself and your families.
I do have a question. In all the talk, all the debates about abortion, I never see the responsiblity of the male involved discused. Want to drastically reduce abortions? Hold the male 100% accountable for the financial well being of the baby and mother. With DNA testing it should be no problem identifying the father. As long as men get a free pass on preventing pregnancy and/or prividing financial support for the results of their actions, nothing, absolutely nothing, will change in the debate.
I can't believe I'm responding to any of your "fact based" post, but…… Trophy hunting is not a large part of Zimbabwi's tourist dollars, est is 3.2%. As it is not sustainable (there are only so many trophies) this is actually a losing propostion for the long run. Second, trophy hunting is never desirable for herd management as it "culls" the most desirable genes (the survivors/trophies ) and allows less desirable genes to reproduce resulting in weaker genes strains for the herd. Lastly, often times trophy hunting is done using drugs, traps, baiting, etc which is anything but hunting. I know of one such operation (now out of business) in Colorado personally. I am (was) a big game hunter for many years so I'm not anti-hunting. That being said, any hunter worth their salt never takes the prize of the herd. Only shoot the stupid ones was my motto.
"Frankly, I don't think I can say what would be considered "proof". It likely varies from some who already believe to some that will NEVER believe" M Hartless when asked what deniers would consider "settled" science re: climate change. To continue…"Personally, I do believe that man's activities has some negative effects on Earth, including quite possibly the climate."
It's the solutions deniers don't like, not the "science".
Voting rights as of 1776-white, male, property owner excluding, Catholics, Jews and Quakers. So much for all "men" being created equal.
Tipton one of the "lefties". I could have sworn he was a darling of the Tea Party. I'm sure his donors will be glad to know he is now a "leftist". That being said, does he really think most working folks from his district make $12/hr? Really??
When we became pregnant in Germany, the Dr there told my wife vitamins weren't necessary, just drink 1 beer a day…… not Bud, of course. Just goes to show…….. to each his own.
If only we had such a news source…...
