Well I think there are many differences to consider. For example, there are maternal deaths from botched abortion "procedures." There are also cases of mental health problems in women following an abortion "procedure." I'm guessing this happens to women who want to terminate their pregnancy, but in some cases it's probably the result of pressure from family or the boyfriend/father. Look into why Lorena Bobbitt cut off her ex-husband's male member.

A hitman's also a "good old capitalist making a few dollars" & I'm not for legalizing that profession either.

In general, I don't see capitalism as a very good system. Unfortunately it's the only and better alternative we have to waging war with each other over scarce resources.

I want capitalism in lieu of something better, which so far isn't available, but I also want it kept to a minimum. That's why I'm a free-market system proponent; the opposite of a free-market system is command and control, central planning, or socialism; they mandate capitalism - they force people to purchase something, whether they want the good or service, or not (it boils down to agents with guns sent after people to enforce it). That doesn't mean I'm opposed to taxes within certain bounds or that I'm an ancap (without the state, there is no capitalism).

Basically I don't see libertarianism and pro-capitalism as necessarily the same thing. I do support transition to what's referred to as a post-scarcity society.
Thanks from Sabcat

You see, Republicans aren't "pro life", they are "pro birth". They couldn't give less of a shit about human life or the quality of life. Hence all the programs that benefit poor children which the GOP is gutting or trying to end. And the only reason the GOP is "pro birth" is their usual gutless pandering to the dumbest segment of American society: the idiot hypocrites of the Southern Baptist Convention who can't even be bothered with the fact that the Bible is PRO ABORTION.
How many have you signed up for, I have an adopted daughter, and sponsor an young man in Uganda. How many families entering illegally have you taken into your home. The Bible is most certainly not pro abortion moron.

And it's Kavanaugh.

He doesn't believe a sitting President can be indicted, or even questioned, much less subpoenaed. Which leads me to believe he thinks Trump can pardon himself.

So it comes as no surprise Trump was thinking about Trump, and nothing else.
Thanks from imaginethat and RNG

CORRECTION: He doesnít believe ďRepublicanĒ presidents can be investigated. The hypocrite worked for Ken Starr during the Clinton investigation and was willing to settle on a blowjob.

I thought it was going to be Barrett as well. I think that is choice number two if the Socialist somehow force another confirmation

I am libertarian, which means that I'm opposed to the state intervening or interfering with anyone eating, drinking, smoking, snorting, or injecting themselves with whatever they want. That means if a woman wants to take some herbal substance that can induce a miscarriage, then the state should not get involved.

So as you can see, I'm not opposed to a woman being able to terminate a pregnancy if she wishes. What I am opposed to is someone else coming along with sharp tools for terminating a pregnancy so they can make money. I support women who say, "stay out of my vagina." Abortion chamber operators, stay out of women's vaginas.
Your beliefs aren't offensive to me. I'm not crazy about the idea of fetuses being terminated, either. I just recognize it's not my right to tell a woman what she can do with her body. That's a decision the woman alone should have the privilege of making. People say that the fetus isn't "her body", but those people aren't going to be raising the baby, paying money for everything it needs, they aren't considering the health of the woman, etc. Religiously they simply don't have a leg to stand on. The Bible is quite clear on the topic of the body: if the mote in your eye offends thee, pluck it out. Same for a zygote, I'll wager. Not to mention the Bible is hardly "soft" on the topic of killing, even of one's own children in certain circumstances.

So, it doesn't offend me if someone is ant-abortion. That's their privilege. But when they claim there is some sort of Biblical proscription against it, that just flat pisses me off, because they are lying. The Bible actually advocates the regressive use of aborton (against the woman's will), in Numbers 5: 11-28. So the so-called Christians advocating against abortion on religious grounds are just lying sacks of shit.

Want to see liberals really freak out? Wait until President Trump appoints a replacement for Ginsburg or Breyer.
