Ceffer saysIf her vagina accommodates a couple of hands, she has nothing to worry about and shouldn't be advertising. She should have named it "Keep Your Little Finger Off My Vagina".I've heard this before with regard to the 14th amendment. There is no mention of a right to privacy in it. If there's ANY mention of this, it's in the 4th amendment where one has a right to the security of their papers and again unreasonable search and seizure - but I'll let people look up the exact text.This is the 14th amendment. Where is privacy mentioned?Amendment XIVSection 1.All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.

richwicks saysnor shall any state deprive any person of lifeI'm generally against abortion. My view is if the fetus can survive outside of the womb, then it is for all practical purposes a person and therefore protected by the 14th ammdendment. Certainly late stage abortions or "partial birth" abortions, in this day and age, shouldn't be a thing. Anything in the last three months should be a "no go" zone. Thankfully less than 1% of the almost 700,000 abortions in this country in 2019 were late term.(https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/70/ss/ss7009a1.htm) Conversely early term (within the first 12 weeks) I don't love the idea but by the same cold logic, the fetus cannot survive outside the womb, so by my own argument abortion would be permissible. Data indicates that is where the majority of the procedures are conducted.The middle three are a grey area. How does one define personhood? I define life to start at conception which is why I'm against it. Others do not, and although I do not agree with it, I can respect that different views exist. In any event I'm going to attempt to put this in a new thread... I don't want to drag down the Funny picture thread any further, it's one of my favorites.

My SIL's mistakes will cost my family $100k
The foster care system
WookieMan saysMy SIL's mistakes will cost my family $100k People who support abortion always make a point of saying anti-abortionists are all for supporting the unborn baby, but after it's born, their support goes away. Isn't that the way it's always been and should be? Is it a stretch of the imagination to believe that the newborn should be the responsibility of the preferably married to each other birth parents and not society at large or extended family as well?
there is no consensus on the matter.
For those of you who still don’t get it, let’s replace the word “child” with “puppy.” How many unwanted puppies do you feel good about killing?
would put deadbeat mom and dad into forced labor to pay for the kid's govt provided support until they either take over or foster parents are found

Report: 5 Minnesota babies born alive last year in botched abortions were left to die in opposition to the law
WATCH: Antifa Tried to Block the Vienna March for Life...They Failed
Abortion was the number one cause of human death worldwide in 2022, with an estimated 44 million dead in the past 12 months, nearly quadrupling the number of global deaths from infectious diseases.There were roughly 44.42 million abortions in 2022, according to Worldometers, a widely cited organization that keeps a running tally through the year of major world statistics. It calculates abortion numbers based on the latest statistics published by the World Health Organization (WHO).
In exactly the same way, abortion could be disincentivized with, for instance, an escalating fine. As an illustrative example, we might adopt a rule that the woman seeking to terminate her pregnancy must pay a tax of n^2 dollars1, where n is the number of days from conception. On day 0 no fine would be levied, which seems appropriate to what is, realistically, about on the same level as shedding a skin cell. At the end of the first month, it would be about $900 – pricey enough to hurt, but doable for most people. By the end of the first trimester, which is the point at which the fetus starts to resemble a human, it would cost $8100, enough to dissuade most people but a price some would be willing to pay if they really didn’t want to have a kid with that guy. By the end of the second trimester – a point at which the fetus is well past ‘resembling’ a human – the procedure would incur a fine of $32,400. A partial birth abortion of a full-term baby would cost a cool $72,900, which unless you’re independently wealthy you will not want to pay.The only real objection I can think of to such a system (beyond those that would be raised by the extremist positions on either side, who can tolerate no compromise) would be that it dehumanizes life by putting a price on it. This is, I suppose, true, but realistically we do this all the time, whether in terms of life insurance payouts or class-action lawsuits against corrupt pharmaceutical corporations. I don’t see any particular reason why abortion should be treated any differently.“But wait,” I hear you saying, “Are you really suggesting that women be taxed for getting abortions?”Why yes, I am implying that they should be financially responsible for their own moral choices.“But what if she was raped!?”Leaving aside that rape-induced pregnancy and consequent abortion is a vanishingly rare corner case, I’d be quite happy for the rapist, if convicted, to be on the hook for the cost, along with in jail for the rape.Something like 65% of abortions are performed in the first 8 weeks, meaning a maximum fine of around $3200. If a woman is really serious about not having that baby, I think she’d be willing to pay that. In other words, for the vast majority of women, an escalating fine system would make very little difference to the availability of the procedure. This is the time window within which abortions are chemically induced, the drugs for which can cost several hundred dollars in any case. Thus, this system would essentially just result in a marginal increase in cost for most abortions, leaving availability unchanged, and keeping the feminists mostly happy.
All of them. I fucking hate dogs.
