I said one of the few. I care about things that directly affect people's lives. Abortion definitely does. Health care is important to me. War is important to me. But very little of what is discussed actually does interest me enough to add something.

And Martha, could you please clarify what "more equal" means? I really don't follow you.

More important. Equal, as it's used by many in political terms, doesn't really mean equal. Levels of "equal" do exist when the word loses its meaning like it has.

See my journal for some real bullshit about "equal."

Is murder permissible according to ones' gender?

I think anitram was questioning the "directly affecting people's lives" portion of your statement.

It'll directly affect mine someday. I would say that spending 18 years worth of time, love, money, and general support on one person would directly influence my existence.

That's parenthood, not abortion.

Abortion prevents parenthood. They're definitely linked.

They're linked, but not in the way that you made in that post. I think anitram's point was that abortion doesn't directly affect your life, since, you know, you won't be having one. Whereas, health care does, because, you know, you have health.

Yeah, I get what she's/you're saying. I just wish she would have told me that straight on instead of attempting to make me look foolish by asking my gender.

Really, cut back on the sarcasm, people. This isn't a pissing match, it's supposed to be a discussion about Mike Huckabee's political positions.

And me. That's why I should be able to make my health care decisions without your input. Or any other complete stranger's.

No dear. It's the way people think. Somehow a collection of cells has become more important than a living, breathing woman. That's how they are more equal than me.
Like I said. A collection of cells has more rights than I do, according to you.
