    Nah. If you arm the blastocysts, they’d be able to defend themselves from abortionists. I’ve always heard that liberals think it’s wrong to protect them.

    Now, it turns out they feel it’s wrong to protect them even after they’re born with anything more than wishful thinking.

    There were about 9,000 firearms homicides (the other 3,500 were self defense) in the US in 2009. About 3%, or 270 were comitted with “assault” rifles. Pretty low numbers, considering there are 300 million to 400 million firearms in the US.

    & replacing Mister Rogers (& it’s awful animated so-called spin off) – the new PBS show, Police Kid. Thanks, Rogers!! & Happy New Year from Lady A.

    Okay, then, there’s nothing to worry about. Even another 10,000 deaths or so would still account for a small fraction of the weapons. Let the rumble begin!!

    It’s RIGHT to protect the WOMAN, who is (usually) somewhat more developed than a blastocyst. She should be able to terminate a pregnancy if it threatens her..as you self-righteous “pro-lifers” (there’s a misnomer!) do.

    How man assault rifles? Seems to be the weapon of choice in mass killings. Might be interesting to know the PER CAPITA assault rifle deaths vs. “mere” pistols.

    Lady A, I’m sure if he were alive he would appreciate your sentiments. He passed in 2003.

    Yup, give everyone ALL the guns they want and let the good guys shoot it out with the bad guys. Since there are so many more good guys they will win, right? That 10,000 a year die is just collateral damage.

    Just what the right wants: a dystopian police state with armed guards in every public space that they don’t want to pay for.

    Midaswelby – not I – called it a blastocyst. I call it a potentially human cluster of cells – at least until it has a central nervous system.

    If it is a potential agent of the woman’s death, or her permanent disablement, I call it her great misfortune.

    The Supreme Court calls it a fetus until 6 months – NOT a full human, equal to the woman carrying it. Unlike her, it isn’t responsible for other kids, aging parents, etc.,etc., ad nauseam. Have some sympathy for the (might be) mother. It’s a rare woman who aborts “casually”.

    If Roe is reversed, prepare for illegal and unsafe abortions, because (like gun murders) no law will stop them.

    “An armed government agent on every street corner? ‘Show me ze papers.’”


    We used to have those (so I’ve been told). They were called “Beat Cops,” and they knew the people along their beats, and people knew them, and while the system wasn’t perfect I’d say it had a lot to recommend it.

    You assume too much. Most people agree that an exception needs to be made when a pregnancy threatens the mother’s life. Actually, my comment was about protecting children of all ages, but you’ve demonstrated my point about liberals and the unborn. Thank you.
