"People have basically said, 'How dare you put somebody so antiabortion onstage - and not make fun of her?'?...
"In my opinion, a lot of the old lefty arguments have not been brought up to date, and the right-wing ones have science on their side now," he argues. "I've talked to many people from the pro-choice organizations, and they don't have anything to say other than it's a woman's right to choose. But I do question that and say, 'Oh yeah? Who says you've got the right to choose?' That's what a character in the play basically says.
"I think for women of a particular generation, this isn't something even to be discussed: It is a basic human right," Simpson observes. "A consideration of what abortion is, even just on a clinical level, isn't something that they're interested in encountering."
I've been in 3 or 4 heated debates over the last week about abortion with several different people. All of those have ended with the opposing side being unable to retort, and one even deleted my comments and blocked me from commenting. Their arguments just cannot stand up to logic and face a crushing defeat in the light of the scientific breakthroughs that have come about since 1973.

Killing human beings, whether born or unborn, CANNOT be a "basic human right".
The abortionists are asserting a "right" to kill all human beings, which destroys the foundation of all human rights, and thereby destroys itself.
You cannot have a "right" to kill any human being, born or unborn, unless you have the foundational right, which is the right to life itself, the right to live a full human lifespan, the right to live according to our nature. You cannot, however, have this most basic of rights if all human beings can be killed and each one of us can be deprived of our entire human lifespans.
The abortionist mentality thus leads to a contradiction, a paradox, and ends up destroying itself.
Opponents of unborn human rights take their position primarily because having abortion violence available satisfies their psychological needs. This is why it is so difficult to reason with them. They cannot bring themselves to accept unborn human rights no matter how much we refute their fallacies.
This is why they retreat into the doublespeak of "choice" and "choose" and "decisions" and "women's health", because there is nowhere else for them to go.Posted by: Joe at February 13, 2010 9:26 AM
Why is the Kansas law an issue? Back when I first started posting on this board, I noted that people were having a fit regarding insurance plans covering abortion being allowed in the insurance exchange - while for years we've had private insurance plans funding abortion, while also qualifying for tax breaks. I was told that there was a big difference in this - a tax break was different from a tax subsidy. So based on what folks told me on this board, I think the laws in Kansas don't need to be messed with.Posted by: Ex-GOP Voter at February 14, 2010 10:25 AM
