  1. I’m comfortable saying there should be no restrictions on abortion. I also don’t give a man’s opinion on abortion much regard.

  2. The one thing I learned from my personal experience with choosing to terminate a very much wanted pregnancy for medical reasons, it is so much more common than you could imagine. Getting news at your 20 week anatomy scan that the child you very much want to have and have been fighting to have for years, either isn't viable, or is likely to lead a severely difficult life, starts this insane countdown clock in which you have to make a decision before you get to 23 weeks and it becomes much more difficult to get an abortion; even in a "uber liberal" state like California. So you're running around from specialist to specialist, pulling strings and calling in favors to get bumped to the front of the list for specialists and even then you feel like you're making the decision with a gun to your head. And once you do it, I cannot tell you how many people will send you a private message or pull you aside and tell you something like that happened to them. It's purely anecdotal but for those limited times that it happens, people in difficult positions deserve to not be treated like monsters and should be free to make those completely unwanted, absolutely soul-crushing decisions.

  3. The economic and social challenges that confront large sections of American society face in ensuring that children live healthy, happy, well-adjusted lives are the "utter nonsense", not my statement. If anything, my statement ensures a lesser degree of suffering and is therefore inherently more moral.

  4. Courts saying regulations in general are unconstitutional is not great.

  7. Yep, I adamantly disagree with the “maybe there would be some merit” part.

  8. If you have Game Pass / EA Play it comes with a free timed trial. There's really no reason not to give it a go. I played it and it's good, just not amazing. I honestly think the Live Acton cutscenes hurt it though. They're not horrible, but they're definitely not good. And for god's sakes you'd think game companies by now would realize that mock-interview footage will never not be cringe.

  9. If American society actually gave a damn about the overall well-being of its children, then maybe -- just maybe -- some of these arguments for stricter limitations on abortion would have some greater degree of moral merit. But American society sure as hell doesn't give a damn, so these arguments sure as hell don't.

  10. Ectopic pregnancies alone are 2% of all pregnancies each year per AAFP this is dumb as hell when you don’t know what you’re talking about

  11. This 1000% as someone who has dealt with this twice. So everybody else can fuck off with their BS hypothetical discussion points.

  13. "Globalist" Yeah - I'm doing what I should've done ages ago, just like I did on the Discord server. Thanks for the helpful reminder, asshole!

  14. That detonate app bit was pretty good. I can't remember but was it ever said what kind of people Barry was sent to assassinate? Were they bad people, or just people someone wanted dead, and paid to have killed. Kind of chilling to see the wife and son of the guy he murdered in the first episode, which you rarely see in shows about killers.

  15. Speaking as someone who has taken acting lessons at The Second City (they even use the exact same SC chairs in the show), I couldn't help but laugh at some of the acting exercises in the show because that's pretty much what we do, and it's admittedly a little ridiculous.

  16. Yeah I agree with you otherwise though - in some ways the show is weirdly like Dexter, you can be on a killer's side if they're killing people you know are bad but once they're killing people to protect themselves from getting caught or because they themselves are going through something emotionally or personally and are "acting out", you're gonna lose most audiences.

  17. Georgia students sue over blocked protest against rebel flag - The Washington Post WWW.WASHINGTONPOST.COM Several Black high school students suspended for trying to protest Confederate flag displays on campus are suing their school district This story is fucked up. I watched an interview with one of the parents on CNN just now. To be clear, there were black and white students who organized the protest. Only the black students were suspended This is Marjorie Taylor Green's district btw

  18. Don't ever forget that black men sand women get shitty health care because health professionals just assume they're exaggerating. ‘Doesn’t Look Like He Needs an Ambulance’: 17-Year-Old Boston Student Has Stroke In Class. School Nurse Argues with His Mom to Pick Him Up Instead of Calling 911. NEWS.YAHOO.COM A 17-year-old Boston high school student suffered a stroke while in class but did not receive the medical assistance he needed after officials called his […] 17yo black kid has a stroke in school. The mother, who is wheelchair bound, gets called to pick him up. She can't and asks the nurse to call 911 instead. Nurse refuses, waits half an hour, and then calls child protective services because mom didn't show up to pick up her son. Only then did they call 911 where he was picked up and later diagnosed with a stroke. I like even better that the school told other parents that paramedics were called because the kid was having a diabetic episode. The school is really sorry and would have you know race did not play a factor here.
