Beto O'Rourke says women should be able to choose abortion even the day before birth

About two years ago, maybe slightly more, someone said I was being ridiculous and spouting hyperbole when I said that eventually, abortion would be allowed up until the point of birth.  No, we are not there yet.  But I think we are VERY close.

  It's a little early for nonsense arguments. Can we at least have time to finish our coffee's (or artificial substitutes) before we get to this.

Feel free to avoid the nonsense.  You'll probably enjoy your day more.

 

As for me, I started my day FAR earlier than I wanted to.  Grrrrroowwllll.

   I actually will. Heading out for a bike ride in a few minutes. Great morning to get some fasted cardio in. 

 

   I probably should have stated that in a better way earlier. Your points on this subject are generally quite cogent. I don't think the one liner helped make your position stronger.

We're lying in bed watching England v. Bulgaria, halftime now. A little boring first half. Scotland lost yesterday to Russia so if England win this match I'm not allowed to get too excited. 😕

Do something else in bed, hopefully it won’t be boring too.

Yeah, that's kind of what he's saying too. :rolleyes: Not my fault Scotland lost yesterday!

 

2 goals so far in this half for England, currently 3-0. MUCH more interesting than the first half, though I always feel like I'm going to have an anxiety attack when I'm watching England.

No, you were spot on.   I was using riduculosity to make a point.  While it sounds ridiculous on the surface, I feel our society is heading toward a place where abortions after birth and more "rights" for criminals may become the norm.

 

Fear not, I took no offense to your curt reply.  It was well in order.  Hope your ride was an enjoyable one!
