lol aside from the fact that this is absurdly illogical, you're just creating a legal loophole for literally every man to get out of having to pay any child support simply by saying he wanted to get an abortion.
Not necessarily. There are ways of implementing that idea which do not have such consequences. Assuming the least generous possible implementation of someone else's stated principle is not a very honest way to debate.

like what?

you stated that if the man wants to get an abortion and the woman declines, the man should be off the hook for his child support obligations. i fail to see how such a system could possibly avoid the consequence of "any man who doesn't want to pay child support to a woman he has impregnated can simply request that she get an abortion."

"oh so you support the right to abortion, but you also support the right to dislike deadbeat dads??" is not exactly the brutal takedown y'all think it is.

If the man wants the woman to get an abortion, and she declines, he should have no obligation (legal or social) to 18 years of financial support for a child he doesn't want.

lol aside from the fact that this is absurdly illogical, you're just creating a legal loophole for literally every man to get out of having to pay any child support simply by saying he wanted to get an abortion.

see y'all this is what i mean about centering the debate on "when does a fetus become a person." that debate cannot be resolved because there is no intrinsic discontinuity between fetus and person.

what matters is the biological relationship between the two. a fetus is literally a parasite. it is physically connected to the mother, and — unlike nearly all other mammalian fetuses — it is in virtually complete control of the mother's body. it takes whatever nutrients and biological resources it wants to from the mother, at will. lmao it's not like, a fucking roommate or something.

Purpously killing a zygote is no different than purposely stepping on nest of turtle eggs. You colloquially killed a bunch of turtles when you did that. It doesn't really matter how mature they are. The were developing to hatch at some near future point. They would have become amazing and majestic sea turtles, but you stopped that by killing them. There is no justification there.

my brother in christ, if a sea turtle connects itself to your blood vessels and starts leeching vitamins and minerals and shit from your blood, you are absolutely justified in disconnecting it.

i don't get why it matters if it's a person or not. no person has the right to force me to donate any or all of my body to sustain their life.

Suggestions & Concerns / Re: Let's use the site-wide theme in CN
« on: April 26, 2022, 01:55:12 PM »
that you would even suggest changing the CN theme means you should resign as site president effective immediately and retroactive to 69 AD.

imo just let markjo keep his thread in the lounge. or move the original now playing thread to the lounge to markjo can post there. or let markjo post in all the lower forums's. or ban all users but markjo. or whatever.

Rudy Giuliani is a celebrity and a show wanted him on as a guest celebrity. Can you explain what is irredeemable about that?

sure. rudy giuliani is a traitor who should be hanged from a bridge, not put on tv to dance and sing like he isn't a traitor who should be hanged from a bridge.

interesting how proponents of this bill literally never bring up any child abuse statistics. probably because child abuse by a teacher almost never happens.

The majority (77.2%) of perpetrators are a parent of their victim, 6.6 percent of perpetrators are a relative other than a parent, and 4.2 percent had multiple relationships to their victims. Approximately 4.0 percent (3.8%) of perpetrators have an “other” relationship to their victims. (See table 5–5 and related notes.) According to Appendix D, State Commentary, the NCANDS category of “other” perpetrator relationship includes foster sibling, nonrelative, babysitter, etc.

does the msnbc piece account for where the laptop came from, who possessed it between its discovery and publication, and/or what was done with it during that very long period of time? because if not, then who cares?

The law is not worded as such to be specifically against homosexuals; if it were, it'd be struck down remarkably easily. The idea that it is against homosexuals is the moral pitfall you have chosen to leap into along with various other factions.

However, my point is that if you can warp the human mind into killing itself, you can warp it into being homosexual (or any other number of mental states).

i'm glad you finally came around to admitting that the law is intentionally targeting the gay community because people like you think being gay is bad.

It seems that you missed the part where the WaPo article says:

Now, The Washington Post and the New York Times have vouched for many of the relevant communications.

it seems that you missed the part where nobody knows where the laptop came from or what was done with it while it was being passed around the hands of trump's inner circle. that many of the emails are valid does not actually imply that they all are. this is pretty important since the laptop has a completely unknown provenance and no documented chain of custody.

lmao your argument literally is "wapo and nyt say that document A is authentic. if wapo and nyt say it, then it must be true. and if document A is authentic, then document B must also be authentic because they are on the same laptop."

pathetic.

tom is right. santa claus is a thing, therefore children will instantly become gay if they hear about same-sex partnerships in school.

lol a laptop magically appears from the aether, has absolutely no documented chain of custody, gets passed around between a bunch of gop fixers, and i'm supposed to automatically believe that everything on it is authentic. lmao. get real.

Don't discuss the merit behind the pictures. Most of them will include terrible hot takes which aren't worthy of serious consideration.
