    Never forced them or anyone for that matter to do anything with their bodies they didn't want to do.

    And as a side note, I know you don't have much experience in this area but a seduction is a two way street. You cannot seduce someone who doesn't want to be seduced, its only the willing who are charmed, those who are open.

    If it's "her body, her business" - then it should also be her problem, and hers alone.

    If it's "her body, her business", others should not have to get involved in any way, such as by providing facilities for her.


    Interesting, isn't it?

    Just because something pertains to a person's body does not make it the person's own problem. Instead, numerous other people and institutions are involved.
    Thank heaven for dentists!


    Remember that all legal abortion clinics (private or not) are monitored (and this costs) by the State, in one way or another, to make sure that certain standards and qualifications are met and that they are held accountable if anything illegal happens.
    It's what distinguishes legal abortion clinics from illegal abortion clinics.

    Sometimes it is but sometimes the partner also thinks of it as his problem and helps pay for the procedure.

    Aren't there medical facilities that provide for other private services? Are there not private clinics of all sorts like dentists, plastic surgeons, etc.? So what's the difference? You don't seem to care that there are private facilities for other selective procedures that aren't any of your business so what makes abortion clinics any different?

    What other people are involved? The private clinics are there willingly to perform a needed and desired procedure so please who else needs be involved and why?

    So what plastic surgeons, cigarette factories, meat industries all sorts of things are regulated. So what? I fail to see how that interests you at all. Do vegetarians demand that all meat industries should close down because they don't agree with killing and eating livestock?

    Methinks you should read post #536 again for good measure

    You do not seem to care about that.

    If the argument is "your body, your problem", then there is no reason or right for anyone else to get involved.

    Whether it is cavities in one's teeth or pregnancy.

    But apparently, society functions by the principle of providing for all manner of things, even if some people see them in terms of "your body, your problem" - as if those things would not involve other people (such as those who provide those various services).


    Why should those clinics be there, if it is "your body, your problem, at the time when it is pertinent"?



    It should interest you.
    There is no such thing as "my body, my life, my problem, nobody else's business".

    Your reasoning is flawed from the onset.


    Some certainly do.

    If women wish to argue that it is "a woman's own body, and her choice, nobody else's business", then everyone else should step aside.
    Then there should be no legal abortion clinics.

    I know of a philosophy professor who demonstrates this practical refutation of moral relativism to his students:

    As they discuss ethics, whether they are relative, subjective or objective, there is usually a student who says that "ethics are relative/subjective". The professor calls his assistants who forcibly remove the student from the classroom. As the student objects, claiming this is unfair treatment etc., the professor replies:
    "You believe that ethics are relative/subjective, so what is your problem? You should not object."

    Signal the people who provide those services are doing so willingly. Do you have a problem with Doctors willingly providing a service that's in need?

    Those clinics are there for the same reason why any clinic is there, because there is a need. I mean a cyst is also somebody's body, somebody's problem but there are doctors who will get rid of it for them.

    Signal: It should interest you. There is no such thing as "my body, my life, my problem, nobody else's business" Your reasoning is flawed from the onset.

    Ah poor bubbie. Says you. Listen luv if you're going to make statements like that your going to have to provide evidence to back up your claim disproving mine Now come and give me a back rub cause I have a nick and its not my body and its your problem.

    Simply saying a reasoning is flawed doesn't make it so dearie.

    There are probably some freaks who do feel like that just as there are some freaks who would ban abortion for everyone but it doesn't mean we have to give in to them.

    Yes physically forcing someone out of class on the whim of a professor is comparable to people trying to force women to physically go through with a pregnancy and telling them they shouldn't object. That professor wasn't really very effective was he.

    congragalations. that has to be one of the most idiotic arguments I have ever heard


    that's like saying someone's health is their own business so there should be no legal doctor offices.

    My former boss used to have a saying about people like you... 'shoulda been swallowed'..

    But congratulations, you have just won at the 'internets'..

    Which reminds me, we really should have a dumbarse comment of the day thread and this one of yours would win for a year at least.

    If the pro-abortion camp wishes to argue that it is "a woman's own body, and her choice, nobody else's business", then the anti-abortion camp is doing them a favor, because by delegalizing abortion, the women can then fully own their body, their problem.

    If it was ever you who made the first move, then you have attempted to control the other person.

    I am not the one arguing that "it is a woman's own body, and her choice, nobody else's business".
    The pro-abortionists are.


    If the pro-abortion camp would argue something like this:
    "The female body is flawed because it can conceive against a woman's will. Therefore, the whole society should show solidarity with women, just as it shows solidarity with many other common problems (such as illness and unemployment), and make sure that women have easy access to abortion."
    - then this would be understandable and an argument to work with.


    But by using the argument that "it is a woman's own body, and her choice, nobody else's business", the pro-abortion camp is cornering itself into an indefensible position.

    What's your problem?

    If you wish to argue that ethics are subjective - well, then live with it!

    Do you really think that others owe it to you to accomodate your relativistic view?!

    You're getting confused mate. You addressed a response to your own post. But anywho…It may come as a kind of shock to you but a woman owns her body whether abortion is legal or banned. Its just one of those things you see walking around with yourself. Wherever you go it seems there you are arms, legs, mind and uterus. Funny that.

    Signal: If it was ever you who made the first move, then you have attempted to control the other person.

    Control is boring and the antithesis of seduction. But you wouldn't know that would you.

    Signal: What's your problem? If you wish to argue that ethics are subjective - well, then live with it! Do you really think that others owe it to you to accomodate your relativistic view?!

    I have no problem Signal. The spring is coming and the sun is shining and abortion is legal, ethics are drawn from the individual…oh wait…I neglected to ask you. What informs your ethics Signal? I mean we know you've given up your physical ownership like a good little slave boy, who designed your ethics for you? Who's standards or ethics have you uploaded?

    The argument you have been going on for about 5 pages about women who utilize state accredited abortion clinics being independent>
    Is this a response to my question or something else?

    I will try again :

    I still don't follow the connection you are trying to make between something being popular and something being ethical

    Sure - hence you find one code of ethics in civilized culture (such as "the strong protect the weak") and one code of ethics in barbaric civilization (such as "being dependent absolves you of the right to claim justice")

    you said that no one was dependent on you - I just gave a few examples off the top of my head. If you don't abide by your obligations to those who are dependent on you, you face a repercussion ... at least in civilized society.

    Then discussing abortion exclusively in terms of zygotes appears to be yet another tool of your intellectual dishonesty

    If the process of preventing them involves killing a figure at least 100 fold, I think it at least warrants an inquiry more detailed than "abortion is no one else's business than a pregnant woman's"
    So technically a murderer could strike on the operating table to get a reduced sentence?
    Or when the pregnant mum opened the door of the clinic?
    Or maybe the door of her car on the way to the clinic?

    How does this work exactly?
    If they went there with the express purpose to kill their child and die in the process how does that work?


    If you are turning a blind eye to a mortality figure that is probably about 100 fold times greater, I think the real question is why you are you so callous.


    Well yes, so you think - the reason you give is because they exist in a state of dependence.

    Hence my question : Please explain to me again how being in a state of dependence places one outside of issues of justice.

    As independent as the women who go to a state accredited university or doctors office yes.

    LG: I still don't follow the connection you are trying to make between something being popular and something being ethical

    You claim abortion is unethical, there is no public standards that says what is ethical or what is not, abortion was considered illegal and now it is not. A persons personal ethics are governed by their individual standards. What you consider 'ethical' is not shared by others. We all do not agree with the standards which change from belief system to belief system, culture to culture, society etc Capice? Your standards towards abortion are yours alone and you're free to believe what you want and endorse what you want for your own life, what fails is when you attempt to create a community consensus when the community at large doesn't share your belief system.

    LG: So technically a murderer could strike on the operating table to get a reduced sentence?Or when the pregnant mum opened the door of the clinic?
    Or maybe the door of her car on the way to the clinic? How does this work exactly?

    You didn't understand what I was inferring. If a woman dies having an abortion it is not considered a death of two people only of one.

    LG: If they went there with the express purpose to kill their child and die in the process how does that work?

    Are you claiming the woman deserves to die?

    so, what did I miss? LOL
    abortion is not about the baby. Its about the mother. If she is a stupid slut who had unprotected sex, then she is a murderer for having an abortion. If she was raped, then its understandable to kill the result of such a horrible deed.
    See, its not about the unborn innocent child. Its about the Mom.
