@wat0n You said it, for them. I want to understand why, though.
Why what? I think this is an excuse to continue a fun argument.
People who support abortion will often just say the fetus isn't a person, because reasons. And people who are against will say it is, also because reasons.
And THAT my friend, is why the legality of abortion is solely a political decision AS I HAVE REPEATEDLY BEEN SAYING. You don't want to talk about that. You want to talk about when a fetus is a kid and nobody, but nobody in power gives one rat's ass about that. Understand?
If we're just gonna dig in and refuse to put our beliefs to test here, then it's pretty much impossible to make any progress.
All evidence to the contrary. The anti-abortion people have made very dramatic progress to fulfilling their goals. The pro-abortion people have just about lost the war in many states. Isn't that what this thread is about?
At best, we can decide what to do about abortion with an election but saying something's good/bad just because most voted for/against it is hardly satisfactory, yet this is the type of topic where the losing side can refuse to accept the result.
And this differs from other pitched political battles, how? And, of course the loosing side can whine and snivel about their political defeat. But what does "refuse to accept the result" even mean? They can disobey the law? That is always a possibility.
Not one of you who are pro-abortion has stopped your emotional tirades long enough to really consider what happened. The SCOTUS had decided in a way that ensures that abortion will be legal in the US. All of the states that allow abortion and want to continue to do that scores just as big a victory as the states who want to ban it. Both of them have equally been allowed to decide for themselves. What could have happened is that the new Republican congress with a Republican president in 2024 could have banned abortion completely throughout the US. Thing deeper @wat0n
Oh well, at least the US has a federal system so if Roe v Wade is overturned, the stakes are lower either way. Thankfully.
I don't understand this comment. Please tell me what you mean.
