do you Chemikiem believe in the sanctity of human life?
I can't answer that in the way you want me to, because my feelings on this are that it is not that simple a question. As I explained, you would have to apply that yes/no answer to every life threatening situation for consistency.
I don't believe in the death penalty, nor do I believe that people should be armed as it just makes it far easier to take a life.
I don't believe abortion should be used as a means of contraception, but neither do I believe that women should be forced to have a severely disabled baby, a rapist's child or worse, a child born out of incest.
If a choice has to be made in a medical emergency, I believe the mother should be saved.
There are extenuating cinrcimctenses even if we believe in a sanctity of human
There always are and that is precisely my point.
That is a lie or manipulation.
How? I know I am being my usual stubborn self here, but as long as a foetus is alive, then a doctor cannot remove it under laws which prohibit abortion for ANY reason. Fact or not? If you disagree, then please explain what your interpretation would be. If you agree with me, then a woman with life threatening pre-eclampsia is at risk of dying without removal of the foetus.
No doubt my stubbornness is now making you hold your head in your hands ;)
I question his motivations
Because you think he is in support of the pro-choice movement? Even if that is indeed the case, when it comes to medical matters he would still need to abide by the law and need to know the implications of new changes to it. If the statement he made was wrong, I am sure he would have been pulled up on it by members of the medical profession. Just because he might be pro-choice, doesn't mean that what he said was wrong.
lefties are far removed from science and reason, they use only slogans and BS.
Hej!!! I've no doubt that you would would probably categorize me as a leftie, but I have a science background, do my best to get the whole picture before making any statements, and my ability to reason is not that bad surely!!! Hate that 'leftie' label anyway, I doubt any person's views are totally to the left or right, that would be BS as far as I'm concerned ;)
