@the old switcharoo
"I'm not seeing people on the right beg women to NOT have abortions and offering to help them in any way possible." Then you are not paying attention. There are thousands of pregnancy counseling centers (who don’t enjoy Planned Parenthoods government leach status) and there are adoption clinics run by charities AND there are also a lot of "right-wing' parents who try to convince their children to be sexually responsible so as not to need an abortion in the first place.
Abortion: More than any other issue brings out the bigotry of left-wing bullies who are completely intolerant of any one else’s choice and simply demand that others pay for, prescribe or perform their abortion regardless of the other person’s choice: Pro-choice has devolved into militant hypocrisy.
Posters who support the banning of a pro-life group from campus merely verify that the left is morally vapid and has become the consummate censors and extremists

"that argument took place thrity years ago and resulted in Roe v. Wade, that is now the law."
The Real Maverick
"The issue of abortion was resolved like 30 years ago."

The Supreme Court also once agreed that blacks were not fully human - that did NOT resolve the dabate - it merely prolonged the hate

Regardless: Are you actually supporting campus censorship? Then why should I ever have any respect for your ironic brand of "tolerance"?

counter intelligence..believe what you want, say what you want, but the law is the law, and it is the result of this same debate and you bring nothing new to the discussion. You have no new facts, no new evidence just your same old beliefs. That's the point. If you had something new to add to the discussion we could show you tolerence and have an open discussion but you don't, so I tolerate your right to believe what you will, but I'm not going to tolerate listening to your opinion you have nothing of value to say I haven't heard before. Then you make the leap of logic and insinuate that some here want to ban some univeristiy groups. That leap makes no sense.

If I'm not mistaken - you once mentioned that you are gay.

So, don't you think telling other people how to live their life --
while telling others your situation is "none of your business" is spectacularly hypocritical?

Um - that was what the article was about: violating free speech and banning a pro-life group at John Hopkins University under the phony guise of tolerance - did you not read it before condemning others?.
AND you didn’t respond to my point - that laws are sometimes unjust - you merely lapsed into typical uniformed left wing bully format to obfuscate the question.

However, thank you for that little moment of clarity when you admitted you really have no tolerance.

But regardless; protecting human life IS everyone’s business
(after all - if abortion is unrestricted and homosexuality is genetic - you could snuff me out and call yourself "tolerant")

CI..no tolerence for your outdated belief based opinion..yes. And my response was to you acusing me of not tolerating campus discussion when I simply disagareed with you. I didn't make any comments about that part of the article..stay on topic. Yes, sometimes laws are unjust..but again you bring nothing new to the discussion outside of your beliefs. The overturning of unjust civil rights laws happened because of facts not religious beliefs.

Re: "I'm not seeing people on the right beg women to NOT have abortions and offering to help them in any way possible."

Unlikely.

Or, to be charitable and ecourage diversity, maybe you're just not looking.

The "sidewalk counseling" that is so threatening and hateful to Johns Hopkins' [and all academe's] "diversity" crowd is that very thing.

1. My Mother and my wife have both been in life threatening situations during pregnancy and delivery. I was thankful that my Mother and my wife and their Doctors had all resources availabele to make the best decisions possible without having to face criminal charges in life or death decisions and without being victims to political ideology.

It's nobody's business.

2. My younger brother is gay. We love him, and would NEVER had an elective aboration based on that.

3. Ironically, the same one who are against gays, are also against abortion -- so I'm not the one in the catch-22 dilemma. That would be a pure hate crime, based on bigotry - not based on rape, incest, life/health of the woman, or viability of the fetus - which is how I interpret my being Pro-Choice.

4. Yes, I am indeed tolerant, brother.
