^ Wow that is awesome.

I didn't realize how widespread so many of these laws are in the nation and it seems like the pro-life crowd is gaining ground. As 19% of the population how the fuck is this possible. At a time when the country as a whole seems to at least be getting slightly more progressive on the average, somehow the red states are becoming more backwards and regressing (ie NC's ag-gag law). There has to be some poli-sci explaination.

john oliver says "if you do not agree with me, stop watching" or in other words, I do not want to be challenged by people who do not think the same as me. great way to change minds

I wish we could take the whole Pro-Life crowd (specifically the ones that oppose abortion in ALL cases even rape, incest, and those done for the safety of the mother) and throw them over a boat 2000 miles out in the atlantic.

Hey man, every deformed baby with a miniature head is really a BLESSING from Jesus! Obviously it is part of Gods plan for you to have babies with birth defects created by viruses spread by mosquitos!

40 years since Roe v Wade why does it feel like the anti-choice crowd keeps gaining more and more traction???

Are those against abortion simply outbreeding those who aren't?

Is American more Christian than 40 years ago (have trouble believing)?

or

Is this really more of a migration issue where educated progressive leaning people choose to leave backwards fly-over states because of policies like these. Thus the crazies are simply making up a majority of the demographics in these places when before they wouldn't have had the power.

Last point. I think more and more people are heading to the coasts and the middle of the country is turning into an insane asylum. Also a good chunk of new immigrants are very anti-abortion.

And because science is now showing us more and more just how far developed a young fetus is, even within the first trimester. It's hard to look at a developing human as just a clump of meaningless cells when so much of who they will become as a person is already set in motion early in the womb.

Just one example of countless findings on this topic: https://www.ted.com/talks/annie_murphy_paul_what_we_learn_before_we_re_born?language=en

But the woman is still the host, so if you agree that certain exceptions should be made for abortion (rape, risk to mother, etc...) then you agree that the hosts's rights can superseded any rights of the fetus regardless of this claimed development

and you're going to need to link to something more than a TED talk to demonstrate that a fetus is a person in the first trimester

Huh? Fetus is a person /= so much of who they will become as a person is already set in motion early in the womb.

And lol at pretending you're too good for plebeian TED talks, as if you know more about the topic than a lifelong researcher on the issue.

well, to start, the author of that TED talk is a journalist and speaker who was there to promote a book, not a lifelong researcher. this is the problem with ted talks, anyone can say anything and since its in a ted talk format instead of something written it is much more difficult to check the sources they cite (and some ted talks don't even cite any sources)

but secondly, nothing in that ted talk demonstrates or claims that a fetus is a person. that was either the point you were implying, or you were not implying that point in which case your post was a total non-sequitur and has nothing to do with the topic of abortion.

^^ reading comprehension is key.

The discussion was around the question "40 years since Roe v Wade why does it feel like the anti-choice crowd keeps gaining more and more traction???"

Craaaaazy kind of demonizing, discussion-stunting logic on your part that conflates an explanation of one possible answer to this into "claims that a fetus is a person".

GG, though. Wouldn't expect any less.

if you aren't trying to relate her ted talk to personhood of a fetus, how is it relevant to that post?

also, i checked the ted talk, it only cites "studies" without saying which ones or really giving any detail. so, not only is your post not relevant, the ted talk isn't credible for the unrelated points that it does make without some more information.

^not even going to respond again to your first point. you can go back and re-read on your own.

and if you need cited studies to convince you what is pretty much common knowledge these days (and in any number of studies easily findable)- that advanced technology and (advanced ultrasound imaging, language formation, etc) is showing us more and more how much important formation happens EARLY in the development of the fetus- than I feel for you. But that doesn't suit your narrative.

So keep blazin, bro!

Yeah, as I understand it the state is a mess and this issue is their go-to distraction. They've passed a lot of ridiculous abortion bills that have been quickly overturned in recent years.

Few and far between my man. Our legislature is pretty fucked, and despite being a relative moderate in the past, our governer is towing the far right party line hard as fuck, no doubt with the goal of not getting primaried.

I like how a female republican governor that hates abortion has more balls than Pat McRory. Pat McRory thinks he is our legislatures bitch....not the governor. He might need to check between his legs.

the NHS failed to interpret ultrasound scans correctly, failed to interpret x-rays correctly, failed or delayed diagnosis for wrong diagnosis, failed to recognize microcephaly with 10 ultrasound scans, found that the counsultant who carried out the scan at 31 weeks should have realized the risk for microcephaly, the foetal medicine specialist who did the scan at 36 weeks was negligent, etc...

Seems like not cutting up a fetus would be a good way to outbreed someone that does
