Re:comment 94. The great evil of abortion will soeday be viewed like slavery is view now; there will be a lot of 'what were they thinking?". Your "Call me a baby-killer, but I want my children to have a choice" will be as odious and sound as despicable as arguments made for slavery sound to us. Here's an excerpt from William Harper's 'Memoir for Slavery', read before the Society for the Advancement of Learning, in SC, in 1837. " We believe that the tendency of Slavery is to elevate the character of the master. No doubt the character — especially of youth — has sometimes received a taint and premature knowledge of vice, from the contact and association with ignorant and servile beings of gross manners and morals. Yet still we believe that the entire tendency is to inspire disgust and aversion towards their peculiar vices. It was not without a knowledge of nature, that the Spartans exhibited the vices of slaves by way of negative example to their children. We flatter ourselves that the view of this degradation, mitigated as it is, has the eflect of making probity more strict, the pride of character more high, the sense of honor more strong, than is commonly found where this institution does not exist. Whatever may be the prevailing faults or vices of the masters of slaves, they have not commonly been understood to be those of dishonesty, cowardice, meanness or falsehood. And so most unquestionably it ought to be. Our institutions would indeed be intolerable in the sight of God and man, if, condemning one portion of society to hopeless ignorance and comparative degradation, they should make no atonement by elevating the other class by higher virtues, and more liberal attainments." Now what was that you said about bringing the good of choice to your children, by reducing the competition from siblings?

From Illinois Senate, Mar. 2001,Obama: "Number one, whenever we define a previable fetus as a person that is protected by the equal protection clause or the other elements in the Constitution, what we're really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a—a child, a nine-month-old—child that was delivered to term. That determination then, essentially, if it was accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place. I mean, it—it would essentially bar abortions, because the equal protection clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an antiabortion statute."
If this guy is elected, he may be The President, but he won't represent me, or be My president.

Two people I work with believe in, respectively, "Big Oil" price fixing, and the "They let it happen!" myth. After two or three questions, each of them said virtually the same thing, "I can't talk with you", "I'm not gonna argue with you" and so on. The Big OIl guy even postured threats. What I am intrigued by is the desire and need of individuals to believe their hysteria. Neither of these guys could stand even hearing questions about what they believed. The "They let it happen" guy was sure they let it happen because he couldn't believe an aircraft's location could not be determined. When I pointed out that the transponders were turned off,and though radar may say where a plane is, location doesn't automatically mean knowing
which plane it is, he erupted. I've concluded these guys want to be angry.
