“OK, so life begins at fertilization. Next, prosecute God for mercilessly terminating 10-15% of all known pregnancies, up to 40% of all pregnancies total; at least investigate God for these murders He calls "miscarriages."”

“Miscarriage isn't a medical term. The correct term is abortion. Spontaneous abortion. Miscarriage is a euphemism.”

“Not to mention the 50-70% that never implant and become pregnancies to begin with. You know... the ones flushed away as waste.”

“No, every "miscarriage" must be investigated as a possible murder by the mother. Every uterus is the property of the government and so is every woman who has one.

“Exactly! Will he have a woman arrested for drinking alcohol when she's pregnant but it's too early to know she's pregnant. It's a person after all. What about the woman (and significant other) who just have trouble maintaining the pregnancy to full term (I know one woman who suffered 2 miscarriages before she gave birth to a health child). Will he want police investigating every pregnancy that does not go full term?
Plus... does he even know how some forms of birth control work?”
“Don't be ridiculous. Placing a limit on one's own wants is not putting everyone else before one's self. It's wisdom.
And, hey, it's Biblical. The Bible commands, for example, that farmers let their fields lay fallow every seventh year. That's a harsh requirement, especially in scarce times. But it, too, is wisdom: Limit your desire for short term gain in the interest of sustainability and greater long-term growth.
It is also wisdom -- and for most, common sense -- that you can be a great and successful capitalist without being a sociopath. Something the Ayn Randians seem to forget.”
“Why stop at 100,000? Clearly the guy needs to take credit for all job creation. I'm sure he can string together enough winding since-and-therefores to get that.”

“Well since he's "personally responsible" for the auto industry comeback, since he personally rooted for such a thing from the sidelines, then he ought to include all the jobs that Obama saved in the auto industry as jobs that he personally saved. Cause, hey, he rooted for that to happen even though his prescription for fixing the problem was the exact opposite of Obama's successful plan.”
“Given the size of a lot of rural communities, it's likely that all the detailed demographic info would essentially make public not only the ID of the doctors but also the patients. Clear violation not only of right to privacy but also current federal law (HIPAA).”

“Also a clear violation of the Fourth Amendment right to be secure in your person and your home.”
