Quantcast

Someone (on this site) who is supportive of the freedom to abortion asserts "abortion is none of the government's business". That SAME someone argues in support of taxpayer funding of abortion. Do these two opinions contradict each other?

    It's definitely contradictory. If they don't want the government to tell them they can't have an abortion then they have no right to expect the government to force me to pay for the abortion.

    Contradictory? Absolutely.....but I'll no longer allow myself to get drawn in to the discussion. I financially support a crisis pregnancy center, which helps women in crisis successfully carry their pregnancies through.
    I feel very good about that, and it's all I need to say.

    Hey...Your choice to do with YOUR money as YOU see fit.

    I wouldn't do it, but that is me - not you.

    Thanks for your opinion.

    PLEASE SEE MY LATER COMMENT CORRECTING MY OWN CARELESS MISTAKE.

    I misunderstood his comment when I stated I wouldn't do it with my own money.

    I would definitely...Actually, I do...Just not directly, but indirectly via another charity.

    I misread your statement...I thought you supported a crisis center that helped women get abortions instead of seeing them through their pregnancy.

    Please forgive my carelessness.

    I would DEFINITELY support such a center.

    And thank you for that noble contribution.

    It is not in the business. The government to the best of my knowledge has never performed an abortion. Being in the business of abortion means actually performing an abortion. The government should only be in the business of law and the law states a woman's rights to that abortion.

    And you have every right to be pissed about that if you can prove it. Are they specifically paying for abortions or giving foreign aid that the recipients use that way But again that is a different topic.

    Plus it still does not put them in the abortion business.

    But the government FUNDS the abortions thru planned parenthood and medicare/medicaid.
  • Headhun... Lanikai 2012/05/08 15:25:27
    Headhunter 13
    Yep so again it is funding a medical or healthcare organization that chooses on spending the money. Face it no matter how morally you are against abortions it is the law that ALL women have a choice. If you don't want one don't get one.

    So what are you people really pissed about the abortion or the money.

    Go BACK to the original document-there is no provision in that document for ALL taxpayers funding the expenses of any other taxpayer. This nation was founded on self reliance, self provision.

    "Being in the business of abortion means actually performing an abortion."

    So, is the blanket statement true for anything? -

    You are avoiding the question.

    Why?

    If you cannot answer it directly as I asked it -- GET THE HELL OFF OF THIS POLL.

    Or block me.
  • Headhun... Howler 2012/05/08 18:27:27
    Headhunter 13
    I am not avoiding the question. I answered the question. You don't like the answer. BTW it was a stupid and childish question. You posted a mad libs game question a Question is a complete sentence with all the parts. But it was a nice attempt at mental masturbation on your part

    Now if you want me blocked that is on you. If you want to grow up and stop playing the self righteous fool that is also you choice.

    Here is one for you How can I without contradiction back the death penalty. Are you man enough to stay and try and answer a real question or you going to cut and run and also supports woman choice

    You avoided this question (in response to your statement)-

    "Being in the business of abortion means actually performing an abortion."

    So, is the blanket statement true for anything or everything? -

    Being in the business of ____________ means actually performing a/an _____________.

    Or, is only true for what YOU assert that it is?

    How is that a "game"?
  • Headhun... Howler 2012/05/08 19:14:15

    If you have no clue what a childish and silly game that is It isn't my problem. You are trying to take a child's game mad libs and use it as an adult in a debate. If you have a serious intelligent question I will answer it. But You are neither slick enough or smart enough to back me into a corner with a kids game. If that ruffles your feathers tough.

    I do not make idiotic blanket statements and anyone that does demonstrates their inability at critical thinking and problem solving

    Furthermore, this poll question does not imply that the government IS IN the business.

    It implies whether or not abortion has ANY "business" being INVOLVED in the "business"...Which would include "funding".

    The use of the term "business" in the context of the poll question is -

    e.g., "none of your business": concern, affair, responsibility, duty, function.
  • Headhun... Howler 2012/05/08 16:00:03

    Once people get the money it is their "business" what they do with it. Not the governments or ours.

    So my question is what is this poll really about money, the government or abortion?

    You asked a question about what you deem as a contradiction. Now you seem to want answers about something else

    The poll question was asked...You gave an answer and chose an option.

    Multiple replies have been given back to you.

    Some contain further questions ( my replies do at least) in order to better understand your position.

    Either answer them directly or GET OFF OF THIS POLL...OR block me.

    Your choice.
  • Headhun... Howler 2012/05/08 18:30:43
    Headhunter 13
    No the choice is yours. Are you man enough to stop your a silly game or just a self righteous child playing games. Based on your last to posts to me I am guessing the latter. Now do you have an actual question or do you want to keep on mentally jerking off.

    But I will ask you my question again. How do I support the death penalty and woman's choice. I think that may be to confusing to you
  • Howler Headhun... 2012/05/08 18:33:38

    Not confusing at all.

    Make it a poll question and I will play your "game" if you want me to.

    Right now...I am still waiting for you to answer the other question I posed to you.

    And if you continue to use such sarcasm as "jerking off"...You are done here my friend.

    Your choice...Ball in your court...

    ROFLMAO and you say you don't play games. Trying to twist my response to you is not only childish but a poor game. As I said the choice to block me is yours. Or you could ask an intelligent question.

    BTW my use of "you mentally jerking off" was not sarcasm but a clear evaluation of your nonsense posts. Now. Block me or move along. But at least be man enough if you block me do it before you make anymore childish comments

    OK...Done. You are blocked...And I will do it as a result of considering your own comment at the top of your profile, which reads in YOUR words ---

    "Ignorance/stupidity will get you blocked".

    You must have been doing some serious introspection on yourself when you came up with that one.

    And, how childish of you to equate any behavior on a trivial social networking site like Sodahead with being "a man"...teehee.

    How funny...You apparently take this site waaaay too seriously my "man"..lol

    An abortion is a 'medical procedure.' Taking away someone's decision to HAVE an abortion is unconstitutional and interferes with their rights under the law. It's very simple, actually.

    Your commentary only speaks of your opinion of the support of legal freedom to abortion.

    It speaks nothing about the support of legal freedom from being forced to PAY for it.

    No one is talking about taking away their ability to kill their babies; but only about forcing *ME* to pay for killing their babies.

    And no, abortion is not a Constitutional Right.
