Why you like to pick fights is beyond me and you using the word empathy is interesting to say the least.
Why do you find it interesting? Because I'm extending the same empathy as you are with extending people that choose to have abortions?
You rattled off a bunch of opinions I rattled off a bunch of opinions. But you decide you like to insult people.
It really pisses me off when people use epistemological arguments like this.
NO. Opinions are NOT equal and if you're going to spout one, then you should be prepared to have it disseminated and test the veracity and application of it.
If I'm insulting, it's because you insult my intelligence with superficial arguments using nebulous language.
I have empathy I didn't say that the decision was taken lightly in fact I stated we have boundaries on abortion so as a society weather pro-choice/pro-life we believe it is serious. The mothers pay for that decision emotionally never said otherwise.
First off, it's spelled w-h-ether
. And secondly, the only reason why we have restrictions on abortions is because PEOPLE WANT TO BAN IT. We shouldn't have any restrictions on it beyond a standard disclaimer and waiver like any other surgical procedure.
Having kids is anything but self-serving. You have any idea how much time effort and money it takes to raise just one child?
I do and I already addressed it and made a point about it in a previous post, which you ignored. While you talk about "the sacrifice," you're talking about what YOU do for YOUR child; not anyone else's, all while you expect others to sacrifice for yours too as that's simply part of living in our society.
Nobody is talking about a ban on abortion either so maybe you're just free-styling there. Plain and simple I'm pro-choice so I'm not trying to tell people how to live.
Are we not discussing politicians talking about banning abortions with you using the similar rhetoric?
Of course you're not telling people how to live explicitly, just implicitly with the blame game. Like this:
Look I'm pro-choice but if women would make better choices they wouldn't be in a situation to have to decide to terminate a pregnancy.
Yeah, let's totally absolve all the men of all responsibility here.
Again, if all human life was so goddamned precious and special, we'd have the social safety nets to allow women to keep their children without having to merely subsist just because they had a child. Abortion is only a problem because people want to ban it, but it has far reaching systemic effects that go unaddressed with merely adding restrictions upon it. You'd be doing yourself a service if you thought about that.
tl;dr: Shit simply isn't as simple as you're making it out to be. Ignore everything else if you want, but pay attention to that statement.
