    Even if the Nazis had made an exception for __________, people would still have complained.

    Of course people would still complain. My mentioning the lack of rape/incest exception was an afterthought, easily the least abominable thing I read. I'd love to hear someone try and justify the second bill.

    It doesn't affect me at all what Oklahoma does, but unfortunately the people hurt most by the bill are the ones with the least capability of just packing up and leaving when their states go to hell.

    People with the same mental faculties as a fetus or embryo would not even be able to function beyond rudimentary bodily processes.

    Of course I am. Iran has long labeled the USA that. And the USA is nothing but the sum of its citizens, so yeah :)

    Nonsense, the US is its Constitution and its constituent states. No citizenry involved... what do you think this republic is, some sort of democracy?

    But, unfortunately, the Nazis were too busy deeming some groups of people as non-persons to bother making exceptions. Kinda' reminds me of some other group, actually...

    A state is going to Hell by making it harder from one group to kill another at their convenience. lolwut?

    You're right. I should stop posting while being filled with bitterness and annoyance.

    Why not start a world government making it illegal to deal with other governments that commit murder.

    Too simple?

    ...that would be redundant as there would be no other governments to deal with?

    Was there an alternative, such as in-womb surgery to fix the baby's heart? I mean, I do keep hearing about how advanced US medical technologies are.
