So we have a law that says that conservatives cannot have an abortion and another law that says that liberals can have all the abortions they want.
Newsflash!! No one is forcing anyone to have an abortion! I know it's very difficult to believe, but it's true- if you don't want one because you're morally opposed to them, you don't have to have one!
They're undocumented immigrants, not "illegal aliens"; they're still human beings and deserve a modicum of respect, especially since they're the ones who do all the jobs we're too good for, like housekeeping and landscaping. How about instead of rounding them up like animals, we make it easy for them to naturalize?
When they move out ;)
In all seriousness, I'd say birth because a parasite is by definition "an organism that lives in or on another organism (its host) and benefits by deriving nutrients at the host's expense." I would never support such a late term abortion, however, because at a certain point the fetus can feel pain and can sense the world.
There are already too many children waiting to be adopted. They grow up in foster care going from home to home and never have a true childhood like the rest of us because a lot of them never feel the true love of a parent.
And you want to add to that?
I'm not sure why you so adamantly want to defend something with no brain activity and no beating heart. Sure it has the potential to become a baby, but an apple seed has the potential to become an apple tree and cutting down a tree is much different that destroying a seed.
Disagreement between scientists is one of the best parts about the scientific community. We challenge each other on the knowledge we don't yet know so that we can find the answers and advance scientific knowledge. If I hypothesize something and everyone agrees with me without proof, am I really going to go out of my way to prove it? Maybe, maybe not.
There are some good Christians, but there are also some bad ones. I mean, the Westboro Baptist Church is really evil and so is the KKK. Honestly, I'm not sure how to tell the difference between these groups and the "good" Christians, so maybe we should just shoot them all and let God decide.
And before you say anything about my argument above... Yes, this is exactly how you sound, so I hope you're just being sarcastic.
There are a lot of poor people who work exceptionally hard. And generations ago, it was much easier (financially) to get an education and advance your career. Today, students need to rack up 6 figures in student loans with high interest rates just to get a bachelors degree. And if we don't go to college, we're looked at as lazy.
It's really frustrating for our generation, in fact. Older generations tell us we will never amount to anything if we don't go to college, so we enroll and work hard for 4 years (or more if you go to grad school). We accrue huge loans that continue to increase each year and become burdened with repaying them after we graduate. And when we seek employment, the very generation that basically guilts us into school pays us the bare minimum!
