    I'm not sure if howardj is being deliberately obtuse or what, but the point is sort of that, normally, it's the woman's choice to have an abortion. I mean, assuming that most women don't choose to get stabbed...

    Making some false equivalence between the two is sketchy at best, and downright insane at worst.

    Really proud. About the baby that's going to come.

    And the difference is someone else violating your body vs. you making a decision that you do not want to physically and psychologically bear the pregnancy. And I don't believe you are killing a 'kid'.

    TBH, you did use the words 'I don't think anyone' and 'complete myth'. If you arn't saying they don't exist at all, then I'd suggest using less assertive words to the point as its fair to say your original comment could be construed to suggest otherwise.

    Also stop making me be a pedant about use of language, as I'm going to **** up and leave it open for you to rip the hell outta me for exactly the same thing, as I'm rubbish.


    Anyway, back to my idea of charging for abortions, or even better, bring in breeding licences. Fail the 'decent citizen' twice and you get sterilized. Think that'd solve quite a few issues, not just this one.

    Would probably save the next generation of CWers from reading some properly dire tour threads too.

    Yeah I think so too. But it's the violation of liberty issue that offends me more than the sexism issue. You don't just have to think abortion is wrong to be pro-life. You also have to assume the right to make a decision that has no impact on you but a life-defining impact on someone else, based on nothing more than a gut moral instinct. It's disgustingly self-important.

    Well it was a pretty ****ing blatant straw man. If it was you you'd have invented a back-story about howardj's babysitter putting in him in a microwave when he was little and baddening up his wee head, then used it to avoid engaging with anything he'd said at all.

    Fair enough.

    I disagree with using the presentation of a small minority to argue against and represent the actions of a much larger group. Better?

    And there's no prizes for guessing where posters like flem and other sad ****s get their debating skills from. Absolute junk as usual from you.

    straw man straw man straw man straw man straw man. Give me a break.

    You'll tell Uppercut why he thinks like he does next, probably drawing on well known facts presented as analysis to make your post look intelligent.

    Thank you for proving my point.

    Fortunately there's no danger of you looking intelligent.

    Should we also refer to spades as specialised non-mechanical manual sediment removal devices, then? Not everyone has time to explain exactly what a straw man is every time they see it.
