To prevent, in other words, means to avoid. The person is already pregnant and being gay does not solve the problem of abortion. If our parents were gay we won't be here today. The best way to prevent having an abortion is to accept the fact that you weren't ready for a child and to think of the joy this child can bring into your life. According to the King James Version of the Bible, " Before you were conceived in your mother's womb I knew you" (Jeremiah 1:5).
You might have to restate to something like, "How to Prevent Pregnancy." Simple Abstinence which is 100%, contraceptives which are 98-99.9% or castration which is 100% if successful.
I appreciate your thoughts, but, the KJB is, in my opinion, a book of mythology, and not a book I would live by. That's not saying it doesn't have its good points, it does. I agree with Samuel Clements (Mark Twain) on this: "It is full of interest, it has noble poetry in it and some clever fables, some blood drenched history and some good morals, a wealth of obscenity and upwards of a thousand lies." Then there's Thomas Edison: "All Bibles are man made."
I was kind'a joking about that "gay" thing, though it makes some sense …. abstinence?? Once you put on the ring, good luck with that. :-)
I don't have any idea what "socialists" want. I'm not one. I just know they have SOME useful ideas that can be integrated (to big a word??), with democracy and capitalism, to make things better for the "common folk" (the less than 1% ;-).
I have NEVER been for killing babies after they are born … or taking away any health care that their mothers, maybe, can not afford. To me, after they come through the birth canal .. (not sure what YOU call THAT ;-), it's a whole different ballgame. I don't even know who Ralph Northam is, and likely, don't want to.
Welcome to CreateDebate
CreateDebate is a social debate community built around ideas, discussion and democracy. If this is your first time checking out a debate, here are some quick tips to help get you started:
- Arguments with the highest score are displayed first. Argument replies (both in favor and in opposition) are displayed below the original argument. To follow along, you may find it helpful to show and hide the replies displayed below each argument.
- To vote for an argument, use these icons: You have the power to cast exactly one vote (either up or down) for each argument. Once you vote, the icon will become grayed out and the argument's score will change. Yes, you can change your vote.
- Debate scores, side scores and tag scores are automatically calculated by an algorithm that primarily takes argument scores into account. All scores are updated in real-time. To learn more about the CreateDebate scoring system, check out the FAQ.
- When you are ready to voice your opinion, use the Add Argument button to create an argument. If you would like to address an existing argument, use the Support and Dispute link within that argument to create a new reply.
