Next?

You would not tell a 12 year old's family that it is immoral for them to kill the person they suspect raped their daughter?

Face it, you lost with your baseless accusation.

You think a fertilized egg is a human being? Seriously?

I think he's saying a fertilized egg is a SLEEPING human being.

I don't need to be OK with it. It's not my business to interfere.
I'm not god. I'm not the judge of rightness or wrongness of people's actions.

Your consistent....I admire that. If there was a test that could test for homosexuality in utereo....you would be okay with mothers aborting babies simply because they were gay.

I disagree with you...but I do respect you consistency even when it leads to allowing people to engage in completely despicable behavior. These questions shouldn't be hard as one poster alluded too and they don't seem hard for you. Your world view might be warped(from my perspective) but at least it is consistent.

We do of course need some laws in order to function as a society but we don't need laws for morality's sake.

So for example if you want to raise a Downs child then you can, if opportunity knocks, and if others want to abort then they can. Everyone is happy and govt don't need to intrude.

So I take it you are okay with a mother aborting a child only because the father was black? Or a mother aborting a child only because it is a female?

In the first or second trimester it's just fine.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

No Banjo....you lost when you implied that society has no right to impose its morality on to the family of a twelve year old. Apparently, it seems, society does have a right to impose it morality on the family of a twelve year old when you are their target.

Again, I don't have to be OK with it. It's not my place to judge or to interfere.

Yeah, but...

On what grounds do you disagree with me?
If you are saying that people ought to use force to ensure others conform to someone's moral standard then you are advocating a "Might makes right" scenario. Which leads to violence and bloodshed while people fight over whose morals it is that get forced on others and then more violence to get people to conform to those morals.
YOU are endorsing this violence.

All the while you believe that it is your own "all powerful" god who defines right from wrong. Why don't you leave moral justice upto your perfect and just god. Surely in the afterlife your god will make "his" judgement.
And his judgement and punishment will be perfect and just. So why do you advocate that humans make a fumbling and corrupt attempt at moral judgement on Earth?

By whose authority is something judged as being despicable behaviour?
I do feel that many people have a fear of giving up control. A fear of letting other people make their own decisions.

Not hard for me at all.

Thank you, I appreciate your honesty and recognision of my consistency.

The child told her dad you were her rapist. So the dad is going to hurt you bad. A simple DNA test will show that the child testimony is wrong.....but that doesn't matter in your world because in your world no one....except an innocent Banjo....has the right to impose societies morality onto the family of a 12 year old.

Your attempt at demagoguery has failed Banjo. Society can and does impose its morality onto others....including the family of 12 year olds.

From a physics standpoint, there really is not much difference between a fertilized egg and a random ethopian on the other side of the world. In both instances I can travel through space and time and find a person....unless of course the human being is killed before I arrive.
