The context I saw was pretty clear and unspliced with respect to how the conversation was playing out. These people didn't see a fetus as a person. It is very likely that this is a defense mechanism to rationalize what they are doing. If not, then the number of active sociopaths is higher all of a sudden.
General Welfare clause. Is that anything like the 14th amendment equal protection = everyone gets the same stuff? We should start quoting the Social Contract clause that is clearly stated in the Constitution any day now.
Last I checked, we went to war following Congress' approval as per the Constitutional mandates. I fail to see where PP is part of a governmental function as per this same document. But by all means, sling about your fake outrage
I can't speak for anyone else, but I can say that having money confiscated from someone that doesn't support abortion in order to support an organization that provides it is pretty foul. I wouldn't extort Muslim butcher to pay taxes to support the guy down the street that sells pork. It is simply wrong and anti-liberty at its core.
I think the opposite. If a fetus isn't a person, then we are on the platform of speaking on a level with animal rights at best. However, given that this cannot be known, considering the alternative bears out some pretty horrific ethical cliffs. Quite frankly, watching and listening to a number of people on this forum (much less those in the video) speaks volumes about where ethics plays out when presented the possibility.
There's a company in Colorado that seems to have developed something that can revolutionize our power grid. They can effectively turn the otherwise unused real estate that is our roadways to turn it into a giant diversified solar power grid. It would also function as an innovative smart road
The reason your discussion gets as far as it does is because you outright rejected the possibility of a fetus being a person. If you are honorable enough to admit that we don't know when someone becomes a person, then you are immediately thrust into a known medical dilemma of useful medicine being drawn from immoral acts.
It is further complicated that if we consider this possibility we are not even given an option of leveraging knowledge at the expense of evil people. If a fetus is a person, they are, by definition, innocent.
Hence, the question.
