    ahhhhh... i will say that i do disagree with that late of a deadline (i mean, if the babys a baby, then you should give it up for adoption). just adding my opinion.

    its more of the point that when people eat an egg, they dont think of it becoming a baby chick. they think of it as an egg. its the way you look at it. when you say fetus, you say "potential human." but when you say egg, you think either "egg" or "breakfast" - not "potential chicken." still - its a piece of life. think about it. person x is pregnant. its not like person x is carrying kids inside of kids inside of kids and so on. person x is carrying potential kids, and as those kids grow, THEY start growing potential kids. life does come from a single cell that forms and grows. and while tounge cells dont do that, were not trying to compare apples and oranges. THEY'RE JUST CELLS. and unless they can function, its not life. im not saying cut a person in half and say "har-de-har-har, they're just cells," but if you have skin cells - they're just cells. together they form life. im not talking about the potential, im talking about right here, right now. *starts singing HSM3* what do you mean by that? like you care for them like a grandparent in a nursing home? or is it that they literally absorb half of your food? parasite |ˈparəˌsīt| noun an organism that lives in or on another organism (its host) and benefits by deriving nutrients at the host's expense. • derogatory a person who habitually relies on or exploits others and gives nothing in return. Parasites exist in huge variety, including animals, plants, and microorganisms. They may live as ectoparasites on the surface of the host (e.g., arthropods such as ticks, mites, lice, fleas, and many insects infesting plants) or as endoparasites in the gut or tissues (e.g., many kinds of worm), and cause varying degrees of damage or disease to the host. ORIGIN mid 16th cent.: via Latin from Greek parasitos ‘(person) eating at another's table,’ from para- ‘alongside’ + sitos ‘food.’ then yes, it is a parasite. yes. that may sound crazy, but yes. thats like cooking a chick. before the egg hatches into a chick, will you boil it? yeah, sure! YUMMY! but after? you wouldnt just drop a chick into a pot of boiling hot water! or would you? cause if you would...we need to open up a thread about animal cruelty. i know you place less of value on animal life than human, but think about it in terms of animal life. again, the chicken and the egg. we're all mammals. so if you think an egg is going to be fertilized, is it bad to take it for your own good? (aka, dye it/eat it) ...its a metaphor, or whatever you call it. analogy? its a parallel. its my version of saying, how is that other argument wrong? fine. lets say no present. the more and more people that earth takes on, the worse it will be. we're still recovering from an ice age, and global warming isnt that things are rising, its that they're rising at a larger rate. at some point, if we have the technology, well move onto other planets or SOMETHING. but do you wnat to increase the number of people living on the streets/the number of people in general? wars take out a good number of humans, but at some point...ever heard of Malthus's Law? (I have sources for once! ) (if you cant read ^^) quantity vs. time, after a while there will be the stripes or "crisis." - - - - - = population –––––––– = resources

    ...and off to the side stood percy making out with penelope ravenclaw. I love how somewhat random the relationships are in the books. not the main character ones, but bill first fleur in book 4, and then they get married!

    wait - maybe i read it wrong, but you were saying that if the baby should be aborted, it should be after the baby's born? like "have a 30 day trial, and if you dont like it, kill it" sorta thing? o.O

    thats not the point. the point is why should you have anything to say about what another person does to their body, because a fetus is part of her body until it can survive as a separate "being." Its her body, not yours. thats the point. hows it an invalid argument? there is a point in time where a fetus is able to function and is able to survive. at that point where it could leave the mother, its a functioning being. im sure, if the mother wanted an abortion, tests could be done to determine the stage the baby was at quite easily. the "line" isnt dead set. its the stage the fetus would be in. no one knows when it would be able to fuction as a separate being. so yeah, i think its quite late and that people will get one before then, but until its a functioning being, its a parasite. oh - and look at the quote in my signature. unless you want to become catholic, you must draw some sort of line. thats like saying dont not pick at your skin because then the dust mites wont have any food. if the baby's aborted, does it make a difference to now? no. we dont do that to sleeping people, but we have bombed cities as part of a war, killing people who are just there. id say that was quite worse. So no, i wouldnt do that. but what about the point that i made. is the fetus going to affect anyone other than the parents? will it ever influence someone, or make an impact on someone's life? yes, theres the possibility of the future, but it wouldnt change the present.
  16. k, but im not giving them a link to here...they're juniors now, seniors next year, and one of them is my mon this year AND next year. DANGER.

  20. yeah, other than as a game at home, ive never encountered people who play it. it was aweosme to watch, although i could barely understnad. I figured out Steven played "god" and i think angel was the mafia because they kept saying her name over and over. o.O
  21. I know this is random, but i would just like to say that i encountered the best thing in the dining hall just now. I walked it and saw some of my asian friends, so i sat with them. cathy looked up and said "we're playing mafia, and speaking in chinese. is that ok?" I said yes and watched as they proceded to play mafia. in chinese. It was awesome.
