Re: Supreme Court is preparing to overturn abortion rights, draft opinion shows

A few points on this. 1. I am pro-life, and although I am a Catholic my pro life views despite being hammered from the pulpit are not shaped by my faith. If I gave up Catholicism for Atheism my views on this matter would not change. 2. I do believe that the Roe V Wade decision was not legally the c...

Re: Supreme Court is preparing to overturn abortion rights, draft opinion shows

Suppose a fetus is a person (I personally don't think this is true, but let's suppose). What gives that person the right to occupy space inside another person against their own will? Good lord.
