Re: The Great Abortion Debate

The right for a child to be born with equal social protection... No. That is not what it says. Remove the tinted glasses and read it again. Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection. ...

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

Saying something emphatically with copy pasta doesn't make the argument stronger. Well now the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is in the face of everybody reading the thread, so they cannot claim ignorance. For practical reasons I believe, as far as the state's power is concerned, abortion sh...

Re: Buddha nature of insentient beings? How?

One way to understand it is simply this.

Does a bee have a emotional grasping self that exists in conjunction with the nature of a bee as an animal or does the bee simple display the nature of a be without a deluded sense of self?

Re: Buddha nature of insentient beings? How?

In order to evaluate the 10 realms in insentient beings one should understand the 10 realms as they manifest in sentient beings.

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

Let's take the debate back to the issue of karma. As PadmaVonSamba pointed out: It may well be karma vipaka for the fetus to be aborted. The workings of karma do not just act on the woman. But I am going to bring a slightly different angle to the discussion. In Mahayana we know that vipaka is based...

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

I don't need to reduce the value of life on percentages in a discourse on rights. I don't have to reduce it to a sole choice or decision. A right is not an evocation it is simply a freedom to choose. The right to abortion is not a guarantee to one and that outcome alone should not be attached to th...

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

That isn't a Indo-Tibetan reference which is the proper context of the request. That is a piss poor attempt to fob off the fact that 40-70% of embryos abort spontaneously, a fact that means that an embryo is actually a seriously insignificant precursor to precious human birth. Respecting women's ri...

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

It is not a binary, women's rights should come first. It's their bodies, after all. Yes but I still the middle way is for women to have the right to choose which is based on conditions, capacities and causes. Determining life valueless before it forms the criteria for being according to any metric ...

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

Down throttling the potential of human birth as represented by a group of cells in the womb because science and policy add to the complexity of the issue doesn't seem to honor the potential for precious human birth. How far down do we want to reduce this apparent potential? https://youtu.be/bzVHjg3...

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

I would be indebted to you to read a citation that says the precursor to precious human birth is absolutely meaningless. Putting the carrier of those cells ahead of the cells themselves is one thing. Treating that collection of cells as something other than the precursor to precious human birth is ...

You claim you don't understand me and then claim you know my opinion. No, that did not happen. But your writing is as tortured as ever, for the most part.

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

In short, restricting women's access to safe abortions is both short-sighted and lacking in compassion. No where did I discuss the rights themselves as being valid or invalid (because they are simply conceptual) but rather questioned treating conceptual proliferation as a set of policies and those ...

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

isn't championing women's rights in opposition to the right to respect life even on a cellular level the same as the converse? First of all, here in "the right to respect life even on a cellular level," I think you mean "obligation." No and the statement was contextually unpacked. Let me reiterate ...
