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...
I am glad you agree.

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

Otherwise, it is just a precursor of an ordinary human birth, such as birth as a Christian, Muslim, Jew,Hindu, Atheist, etc., since those eighteen conditions are missing. Nobody is born as a follower of any religion People are born into families. Those families live in countries. Those countries te...

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

In Indo-Tibetan Buddhism, a human birth is not termed "precious" unless it has the eighteen freedoms and endowments that permit the practice of Dharma. 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 tho...

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

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. I was led to believe by something you said some time ago, that you have some kind of dyslexia, so i try to work with what you write, but honestl...

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. It was unclear, d...

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

In any case, If one accepts rebirth, abortion is just not that big a deal. this sounds monstrous from someone who teaches Buddhism. Well, you have to take into account that the whole debate about abortion comes from Christians who believe they only have one life, this one, after which the soul goes...

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

why do you ignore the fact that i keep explaining that i'm not opposed to abortion. One would think your deflecting from your lack of belief in actual Buddhism and want to change it to a religion and something along your own narrative , that changes with your political whims . or it's just trolling...

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

So is the group of cells containing all human DNA also the vessel for some sentient that has been human before? ot maybe this is their first rodeo. or is this some intellectual game where we say nothing really exists anyway... unreal...who would argue the point that at the moment of conceptual like...

Wife is a ER nurse on LI NY and yesterday she had to put another ER nurse to ICU. 44 and no prior health problems and on the brink of death. She said it is starting to get overwhelming and the next 3 weeks will be very rough. I have been doing my best to stay away.
Your wife is a hero.

Re: The Great Abortion Debate

"Is the fetus in your uterus?" deliberately frames the debate in language taking a particular side while ignoring that this is the entire crux of the issue. It's as sincere as asking, "Are you the mother blessed with this child?" Is the entity merely a collection of cells or a human life? When exac...

Re: What are you doing about the coronavirus?

In Canada this will peak at an unemployment rate of 20 to 25%. In my military training 20% is where civil order inevitably breaks down. Mnuchin already has predicted 20% unemployment before this is over: https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/mar/18/steven-mnuchin-coronavirus-unemployment-treasur...

Been on American football chat boards... the delusion of these people thinking there will be a season... Its an interesting mix because politics generally takes a back seat.
