@Bella Dea,
How many is "many," and how do you know they act as you claimed?

Do you also find it interesting that many, but not all, people who claim to abhor violence are OK with sucking a fetus out of a womb and severing it's spine?

Many isn't a definitive amount however, check with the conservative republican party and their view and you'll see what I mean.

You can't abort because life is precious...unless you're poor and then your kid is fucked because the government shouldn't offer all those damned socialist programs to feed and provide medical attention.

Note that Finn is using emotive language to demonize abortions. The most common form of abortion after 49 days is dilation and vacuum removal of the pregnancy tissue. There is no "severing" of the spine because in the first trimester, the most common time for abortions, there is no spine. This is propaganda, and the kind of disgusting tactic anti-abortion activists like to use--this is a scare tactic. Before 49 days, the most common form is a regime of drugs administered over the course of several days. Anti-abortionists like to highlight the most gruesome abortion methods because they have an agenda--certainly not because they are honest, and not because they actually care about the woman involved.

@Setanta,
Once again, the use of emotional hypebole, for or against, takes away from the central issue. Abortions are legal in most venues. So it boils down to a matter of conscience for each case. One would hope that folks would consider every facet before buying the jewel. But that seems unlikely from my perspective.

@Setanta,
Note that Setanta is twisting what I have written to make a point that is driven by his personal animosity towards me.

Nowhere did I suggest that all abortions involve a severing of the spine. For someone whose rhetorical life blood seems to depend upon the accusation of STRAW MAN!, this is clearly a straw man argument.

Vapid hypocrisy? Of course.

I guess I'm going to have to start calling you The Shadow since you clearly think you know what evil lurks in the hearts of anti-abortionists.

This is what you wrote, Finny:

This is Wikipedia's definition of a straw man fallacy:

Quote:
A straw man, also known in the UK as an Aunt Sally, is a common type of argument and is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of the topic of argument. To "attack a straw man" is to create the illusion of having denied a proposition by replacing it with a different proposition (i.e., "stand up a straw man") and then deny it ("knock down a straw man") instead of the original proposition.


I didn't replace your proposition with a different proposition, i responded to what you wrote. If you meant something else, you ought to have written something else. You didn't. That was what you wrote, and it was a blatant and ham-handed attempt at the kind of vile propaganda that anti-abortion protesters are so fond of. You wrote it, you own it.

@Setanta,
They don't care about the baby after it's born. Doesn't matter what the doctor recommends to protect the woman's health.
