Yes, it's the woman's body and therefore the woman's right to choose, not the man's.

This is an argument that women have absolute right over their body. They do not.
Do women have the right to choose to not have children?

Sure, there is a difference, and a woman may suffer medical complications. But you are now arguing that abortion is only acceptable for medical reasons.
Do you think that there are valid medical reasons for a woman to have an abortion?  There are, after all, a number of different medical conditions and developmental abnormalities that would cause the pregnancy to be nonviable and even life threatening to the woman.  Should those medically necessary abortions be outlawed as well?

Biden's speeches can be very odd.
It's hilarious, and a bit depressing, how easy it is for FOX to tell you what to think.

So you have no defense at all about Biden whispering into the microphone during speeches?
He was probably whispering for dramatic effect.
“Hey, guys, I think it’s time to give ordinary people a tax break,” he said, almost whispering as he addressed his critics. “The wealthy are doing fine.”

It was the latest instance of Biden speaking volumes by whispering.

The White House and communications experts say Biden’s whispering is just this veteran politician’s old-school way of trying to make a connection while emphasizing a point.

Quote from: AllAroundTheWorld
Which is bullshit. A clump of cells is not a human life, it doesn't "want" anything.

Actually, it does. It clearly wants to live and not die. This it why it absorbs nutrients, multiplies its cells, repairs itself, and seeks to not die.
The same could be said of a tape worm.

Y'all are the disturbing ones. Forcing irresponsible horny people to be parents. Shameful.
Children are nature's punishment for enjoying sex.

If you are arguing that abortion might make a comeback in the US, that is not the trend.
Then why do 60% of adults think that abortion should be legal?  Apparently SCOTUS does not reflect the opinions of the majority.
Approximately six in 10 U.S. adults believe abortion should be legal in "all or most cases," according to a newly released Pew Research Center survey.

Driving the news: The poll was conducted before the leak of the draft opinion revealing the U.S. Supreme Court might overturn Roe v. Wade and shows how a wide swath of the public is supportive of abortion rights.

Here is the 14th Amendment -

Let us know when you find anything about abortions.
In the Roe v Wade case, the right to an abortion was determined to be covered by the Due Process Clause of the 14th amendment and is explained here:

Flat Earth Theory / Re: Moon landing hoax question

There is nothing to skip. Read above. They publicly said they were not in a race to send men to the Moon...
If Russia was willing to lie about sending humans to orbit, then why would you think that they wouldn't be willing to lie about their intentions to send humans to the moon?  Don't forget that, because of the Cold War, much of Russia's space program at the time was carried out in secret and many missions only announced after they were over.  We didn't find out a lot of things about their space program until after the Soviet Union collapsed and they opened their archives to the world.

3: Was Russia Going to the Moon?

"We choose to go to the moon this decade," said President John F. Kennedy to a crowd assembled at the sweltering Rice University football stadium on Sept. 12, 1962, "and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard...." With those words, there was no doubt about the United States' intention to land a man on the moon. But as the Americans ramped up their lunar program, the Soviets seemed unimpressed, calling the lunar missions risky and worthless while insisting they were focusing on the development of space stations. It left some wondering: Was the Space Race even a race at all?

As it turns out, it was a race — but the world didn't know for sure until 1989. That's when the Soviets let a group of U.S. scientists tour relics of the communist country's manned lunar program dating from the 1960s and 1970s. Among the equipment was an advanced lunar-landing craft and Earth-return module, indicating not only that the communist nation had a lunar program, but that they were actually quite serious about it [source: Wilford]. The Soviets might have even beaten the U.S. to the moon except for one problem: the rockets. They just didn't have the power to launch equipment with the complexity needed for a moon landing. Tests flights produced mixed results, and in the face of several American successes, the Soviets scrapped the program in the 1970s [source: Hardigree].

Written by a man and never confirmed by Jesus.

Then perhaps you should see what Jesus had to say on the subject:
Then he said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. So the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.” Mark 2:24-28

Dunno if you've noticed, but you should be able to post in A&E again now.
Yes, I noticed (thank you).  If you want, you can move this thread to A&E, merge it with the Now Playing thread or leave it here.  Whatever you think.
