Planned Parenthood's "Monthly Abortion Quotas"
I welcome all fellow Pro-Lifers and all all Pro-Choicers alike to discuss their reactions/thoughts about this interview with a Ex-Exec from PP in a CIVILISED AND RESPECTFUL MANNER. Is this the right direction? If not, what is to be done? I know its Fox News, but its what she says that matters.

Looks like the video isn't up any more anyway. The idea of quotas for abortions I find personally repulsive, though. But I guess the corporates need their baby organs.

Assuming this is a profit driven exercise, obvious solution is to have the federal/state government pay the cost (making it not-for-profit). So you don't have planned parenthood having to pressure people to keep their operations open.

Of course the other alternative is to go backwards like the 66 countries which currently don't legally allow abortion (Ireland included) and cause untold damage from the unsafe abortions which occur in these places.

Remind me again why we are supposed to be respectful of people who peddle a lot of inflammatory lies? I mean, you'd think taht being a slaver kind of removes you from consideration in the "should be treated with respect" category.

Margaret Sanger spoke at a KKK rally: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/may/5/grossu-margaret-sanger-eugenicist/

@Orathic
True, I believe that we cannot abolish abortion completely and criminalizing it will only lead to illegal & unsafe abortion practices. I personally think we should spend more money educating children on birth control and improving it. Open to change my mind and welcome POWERFUL ideas! :D
Ogion (3982 D)

Well, yes, the fact that the anti-choice forces are dead set against any of the measures demonstrated to reduce abortions pretty much is proof positive that they abortion is NOT what they're concerned about. Anyone who is genuine in their concern about abortion would be providing education, health care, and contraception to women of all ages.

However, i'm not sure starting with a fake video by a known con artist is the best starter for that debate.

Why don't we just kill the babies right after they are born? Seems much simpler and more efficient. We would need some sort of a cut-off date beyond which it would not be permissible, I imagine.
orathaic (1009 D (B))
23 Aug 17 UTC
@ND do you support actions which are empirically proven to reduce the number of abortions/unwanted pregnancies, like comprehensive sex ed? Do you support easy and cheap access to contraception?

Do you agree with the proposition that unwanted oregnancies and unwanted children can lead to higher rates of crime? And that women who don't want to have children shouldn't be raising children?

Do you agree that every abortion is a tragedy, and we should collectively (meaning federally funded) take whatever actions which have been proven to reduce them?

@Supersteve, we don't because we don't need to. The new born baby may not be a person, in that it doesn't have any personality to speak of. And it may not contribute anything to society yet, and require a huge investmen of time and money before it will. But there is no reason to kill it and depriving it of the right to life.

At any earlier point, the right to bodily autonomy must allow the pregnant person to at the very least remove this parasitic growth. If that growth can survive independently, then their is no need to kill it. If we figure out how to do this safely, and freeze or implant unwanted embryos in wanting parents, then that rights position may vary. But until then we should be taking effect steps to minimise the number of abortions.

@orathaic has a good point. I like the idea of implanting the embryo in wanting parents! With the rise in self-proclaimed homosexual relationship or ED, etc. this can fill the demand. Nice!
orathaic (1009 D (B))

And the first successful uterus transplant. Which should allow any man accept an unimplanted embryo. I recommend starting with law makers trying to restrict access to safe healthcare.

Stakes Diplomacy Game
Would anyone be interested in a tent stakes diplomacy game? The notion is that we'd all chicken-wire together some tarps into a tent sitting in the backyard of a trusted party, and fasten it to the ground with tent stakes. The pay-out is that if you solo, everybody else has to sleep out in it at the end of the game, with Krellin visiting the tent to wake y'all up every morning.

Has there been an actual WW1 simulation/approximation of Diplomacy?
Meaning orders & outcomes that best represent the events of WW1, which I assume would result in some sort of draw in the end, beginning either 1901 or 1914? I'm sure it's been done, but I'm a curious newbie.

What do you all think about Faustian stories?
Diplomacy is a great playground for turning on friends for personal advantage, and I'm pretty sure everybody might compromise their held virtues for a little harmless gain in most places of their lives. Do you all think Faustian narratives are on point the more we all trod into the great 21st century, or is the devil obsolete and unversed in the digital age?
