I see, so local ordinances don't have to meet federal constitutional muster in regards to choice? The Supreme Court would disagree, and so would every court that has heard the case so far.

We got all sorta local ordinances on alcohol, cigarettes, smoking in public, transfat in restaurants, etc. around here. It's a local Government decision. Supreme Court ain't got nothing to say on it.

The same woman enters her favorite pizza place and asks "may I have a 32 ounce soda with my slice of pizza?"

The man behind the counter says "No, New York law says you are limited to 16 ounces."

The law, originally started by Mayor Bloomberg, is still being championed by New York's current mayor Bill de Blasio. The law has been struck down at every level of court in New York yet he plans to take it to the U.S. Supreme Court if necessary.

Funny thing is, abortion is so insignifigant. If god truly cared about the person being aborted, it could so easily put a stop to it. It makes no sense to me.

Truth seeker.

Well if god were real, the argument would be that he gives us free will, so he can't stop it, or that would be taking away that free will and he couldn't properly judge you for your actions.

Since we don't believe in god, our morals and humanity must dictate our actions. I agree with astronomer and atheist Carl Sagan on the issue of abortion, that at the beginning of a pregnancy when the embryo is just a mass of cells, abortion is morally ok. After that, when a fetus can feel pain, its a risky game of what defines humanity and do we terminate something that is inherently very human, especially in a brutal way?

I'm not a liberal. Just pointing out the absurdity in your post. seriously read what you wrote and have a long hard think about how you cant possibly compare the two in any way.

What does volume of flavored corn syrup have to with freedom? Why stop at the volume? why not complain about the limits on additives to food? Or the concentration of alcohol in whatever you decide to drink. Or even the concentrations of chemicals in medicines? Why bother regulating any of them, its clearly an act of oppression to do so?
Surely the only just thing to do is to stop regulating anything and allow people to freely choose to take in dangerous levels of whatever in one sitting. I mean after all Diabetes = freedom.

Behold the power of the force!

Well the courts have already decided the rule overstepped the authority of the people that wrote it, so in the end, freedom won.

I'm confused by your post. If the business is prohibited from selling more than 16 ounces of soda to a customer, how is that not limiting the customer? The law takes away the choice of the customer by preventing the sale of something bigger.

Can't they just buy 3 16oz drinks for a total of 48oz?
Maybe a buy 2 get 1 free if I show my "I aborted today!" sticker?

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.
