As you well know, I'm not an antiabortionist, but I do acknowledge the core of the debate. If you can discard a human at 8 weeks, then why not 2 years? Or for that matter any individual that is incapable of fending for themselves? It's not a religious issue, although many tend to couch it in those terms. It's a moral issue, does the law extend itself to protect those incapable of protecting themselves or not? And if not, why not? What are the parameters that guide us as to what form of human is protected? And why one and not the other?

We are told by the proponents that it's a "woman's prerogative." She is free to do with her body as she will. The first question is just what gives a woman the right to decide life or death without the victim of the execution having an advocate? After all when it's all said and done that is exactly what's occurring, an execution.

And if we're to buy in to the whole "free to do with her body" gambit then why should prostitution be illegal? Or even regulated for that matter? Why aren't women up in arms over that legal restriction?

Indeed, to not recognize the fetus as human is to engage in a form of rationalization that cannot be supported by any science I know of.

Ishmael
no, of course you aren't antiabortion

and prostitution isn't illegal, at least not in most countries.

Funny how you can claim to “acknowledge the core of the debate,” yet be too dense to understand the difference between an 8-week old fetus and a 2 year old child.

Actually, the first question is just what makes you think a woman is nothing more than an incubator, merely a vessel that is of such low status that she should be forced to give up her rights as a full member of the human species and be forced to endure a pregnancy that she does not wish to carry. Where do you get the idea that she should be forced to endure the several months of life-endangering conditions that a pregnancy involves if she does not wish to do so? What makes you think that the growing fetus’ rights should trump her rights, or even be coequal to them? To assert that a woman loses her right to make these fundamental decisions about her own being is inherently misogynistic.

And who are you to decide what moral framework this individual should live by when it comes to these kinds of decisions? Morality is hardly the black and white issue you make it out to be. Your basic problem is that you believe your morals should apply and that you should be allowed to make these decisions for her or determine her destiny, rather than her making those decisions for herself. Of all the arrogance.

Many do argue exactly that. And as Kybele pointed out, in most places, prostitution isn’t illegal. But my question to you is, are you really so ignorant that you cannot see the fundamental difference between this and the issues associated with the right to decide whether or not to carry a pregnancy? Really?

A person who champions freedom of choice and then supports death of human life...

...is just that much more waste than a person who champions freedom of self and then supports enslavement of human life.

Abortion mistresses should be disrespected with even more disdain than slave masters...

From my understanding, and in my usage, it's referring to the Mongolian hordes... Not modern day Mongolia.

in fairness, the Mongols under Genghis Khan were rather more than a nomadic tribe.

"Mongoloid," not mongol. But it's also been out of favor for many dozens of years.

OK, I have completely missed something. We aren't talking about Dick's pretty awful faux pas that is oppressive to a group of disabled people and/or potentially racist?

Yes, but I would punch a fucker in the neck if he ever used "mongoloid" to describe someone with Down's.

the 60+ age range seem to use that term a lot, but it was not considered an offencive term when they learnt it.
mongoloids, spastics, cripples, etc. it was the language of the day.

Only out of use in text books (though I have one in my office from the late 1970s which uses the term). In lay usage it's still out there, usually as a pejorative like "retard".

no, actually mongoloid is used to describe the specific race. It is still a very colonial and outdated concept, though. The use of mongoloid as a term for people with Down Syndrome (or Trisomy 21 if you really wanna be correct/pedantic/medicalised) came later.

would ''full of mongoloids'' be the correct usage?
i would have thought ''full of mongols'', ''of mongoloid ancestry'' would be how it works...

but i've never thought about it all that much.

Mongols come from Mongolia.
Mongoloid is used in the same way that Caucasian is used to describe a specific 'race', which is a colonial racist concept.

So you might have Mongol ancestry, but you ~are~ Mongoloid. The confusion is because the name of the 'race' is derived from the name of the place.

see, this is where you are not able to distinguish between technical/academic usage and lay usage.

In the USA the term 'retarded' was still current in terms of technical/academic use until about a year ago. But if you read current academic journals you still find the term and for it to fall out of lay usage will take even longer.

Try substituting 'negroid' for mongoloid and see how it works.
