April 7, 2013

Jan Brooks, Minot Does anyone in this state remember why Roe vs, Wade was enacted? Before Roe vs Wade some pregnant females were aborting themselves with homemade methods....

What does the choice entail, willgrr?

Ending the life of another human being.

Not much of that makes my day.

Restoring the legality to use a drug to facilitate the loss of "potential" human life makes willgrr's day.

Because anyone who supports death penalty, less gun regulation, and considers healthcare a priviledge, cannot seriously call themselves "pro-life" If you are pro-life then make it so in every facet. Don't get me wrong there are extreme cases where death penalty is warranted, but personally if someone killed me or a loved one, i would rather they rot in prison for many, many, many years. Disgusted, try for once to form your own opinions, don't eavesdrop on the conversations of your borhter husband and recylce what you gathered into your ultra conservative views. And since we wish to ban this medical procedure, then face-lifts should be banned because they look stupid and creepy...the government should regulate everyone's caloric intake so there are less fatties, and ban salt because it raises blood pressure...see where this is going. You pass a law regarding someone's body with the cover of "protecting a fertilized embryo", where do we go next?

LOL i just noticed that MDN blocked out condo - minium bulding when i spelled it correctly. In other words, the word C O N D O M is offensive? LOL well then again if you're strictly religious then any kind of contraceptive, even if it is a disease preventative is offensive i guess. remember folks, life begins at conception. for now, pretty soon it will be "life begins at last call", then "life begins at phone number exchange" Digusting, if you can go and make a substantial donation to a children's charity (which you won't and wouldn't do even if you could- i don't believe you have the means to do so, otherwise you wouldn't be on here ALL the time with your crazy opinions on every single possible subject, from street potholes to the death penalty and a president with the "wrong" skin color, you can't possibly have a job. But if you did do something that benevolent then i can at least respect your anti-aborition(because anyone who supports death penal

-Continued: you mentioned once how you believe certain jobs are "demeaning" such as that of hotel/******inium building doormen/doorwomen because "people can hold the door themselves". Though i explained there are other duties including building security you said "police provide security" which is wrong because police cannot patrol private buildings...at any rate I assume you think those who have those "demeaming jobs" should quit them? what do they do then, collect welfare? Which apparently anyone who collects government assistance is somehow stealing from you because you are so whopping rich and pay huge taxes (again this is all from previous comments you've made in the past but the point stands) With all the Jerry Falwell-esque opionions you have about the country and others,I assume you listen to one person only and draw from there If you like most of the country you're overweight and that means your medical bills are making my insurance

Digusting aka Digusted, I simply love all your constant opinions on everything. As noted in another letter on here, you like many consertatives "holier than thou", only care about a fetus, and once it is a newborn baby, you absolutely cannot stand the fact that maybe the child's mother cannot afford to feed and clothe the child herself and therefore would need assistance from the state or federal government...you believe they have no right to it. I find it strange this being so hot button for conservatives, who claim "less government is better" but then want the government to regulate the goings on inside your uterus. It is appalling that we believe making this procedure illegal again would somehow stop it from happening...there is no need for a new generation of back alley abortions and draconian penalties for having one. I personally couldn't have one, but being a man i will never have to make the choice of having an abortion and i can't imagine it would an ea

DustOff, we've always liked ND and have strong family ties to the state, but the influx of oil and developer wealth is creating big burdens for middle-class people like us. It's amazing how much total costs of living have gone up. We're here until we're not here, I suppose. :-)

Well, in Kentucky, I guess people can still use their noses and act accordingly.

Sen. McConnell remained firm in stating that his office was bugged, no matter how the spin machine whirled around him. It is an interesting case, for sure. We'll see how much coverage this gets...

Surely there are other less "backward regressive pipsqueak" states that would appreciate the presence of certain others gracing their virtual and/or real landscapes.

Find a job and go, or don't find a job and go, but go if this atmosphere doesn't suit your sense or sensibilities.

A super-regressive thing to say, I know, but one might say I don't care at this point.

Verts...I feel you are so right on...might I change the saying to "Left on..."? Yes, immigrants have moved this country so far forword, just how can anyone argue that fact? Those immigrants were so great for our country, and we should learn from that and just open our borders. We could even get rid of that nasty "illegals" connotation, and just call them all "immigrants"....I also feel that not only being born here gives you the right to citizenship, but if you can get across the border, which will not be monitored any longer, that in itself gives you auto-citizenship...

Left on, Verts....

So, in democrat-speak, the word "republican" equals evil incarnate? That's a hard act to follow, any time, any place.

Now that I understand the democrat-speak terms, somebody should think up what the term "democrat" should mean in "republican-speak." No doubt it'd be something equally all-encompassing and vastly over-reaching, because republicans and their speak shouldn't be outdone, right?

Personally, I think it's rather silly to blame all the ills of a society exclusively on some political party or its members. I'd say the same thing if someone blamed the democrats for everything. It defies logic, but there must be enough warm & fuzzies in the practice to keep it going, huh?

if protecting the lives of the unborn is such a travesty who's next to be on the chopping block? The elderly, the infirm, the mentally challenged, the handicapped or maybe anyone on welfare.... where does it end?

"""Does anyone in this state remember why Roe vs, Wade was enacted?"""

I know...I know....it was enacted so as to get rid of babies of American born mamas , and make room for the babies being born of those here illegally. That is only "fair", as the citizens having babies still way outnumber those of illegal origin. And an added benefit of Roe is that we can allow so many more into this country by whatever means, as those tissues we get rid of, DO make more room for those crossing the borders. I feel especially thankful for those people....as they do vote for my Democrat Party....bringing their culture here can only move this country forword....

Great info in your post, disgusted. Some libs in ND should be glad they live here instead of KS, eh?

The "back alley abortion" thing has an equal in our Roe v. Wade time of abortion "safety" and liberty.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell, abortionist in Philadelphia, is on trial for the murder of 7 babies born live, and for the death of one of his patients. During her abortion procedure, the patient was administered Demerol by Gosnell's under-qualified staff, which resulted in her death.

It was only a few years ago I suddenly realized that if women waited to be married to have children we would have very few children. It's probably not a perfect system but the bravery of so many women is incredible.
