“I saw the video too and a lot of the posters neglected to see the woman rush him with fists flying! We weren't there but I don't care if she's a woman or not there is a limit to what a man is require to put up with in the situation that I saw in that video.”
“I'm old and had to Google your reply. Apparently you don't understand or spell the English language properly. You must be 20 something. Sad. Get an education, learn how to do something useful. You will not only help yourself but you will help the country as well. I wish you the best.”
“That first sentence was incomplete, I apologize. It was meant to read, "...field of study, had come out and definitively said that "brain development" was the clear cut life/not-life borderline." Again, sorry for the fragmented sentence.”

“I was unaware that, "science," as if it were its own entity and not simply a broad field of study. But addressing that point, why does that definitively determine the life/not-life border? What about babies whose brains do not develop properly? Are they not life? What about adults who become "vegetables" with such severe brain damage that they are essentially infants and less in their brain capacity? Are they suddenly no longer considered life? Do you see why brain development is an arbitrary and slippery standard to go by? Not to mention, what do you consider brain development? There are many steps in the process, the brain does not simply appear all of a sudden.”

“The baby was 10 weeks in the womb in July...This is October, right. How many weeks does it take in your mind to form a human being?”

“So, when does it become a baby, in your opinion? The only logical point at which we can agree that life begins is when the fertilized egg attaches to the mother's uterus. From that point on, it will continue to grow and develop, barring any outside interference. Any point past that is simply arbitrary and based on what it looks like or what it might be able to feel.”

Great post. I'm not a woman but I can't imagine a court ordering me what to do with my body.
Also, if the girl in question were the daughter or niece of the judge, a different ruling would have been handed down.”
“Your statement is factual incorrect....I have read plenty or articles (as well as know some people from highschool) that are now on the sex offenders registry after doing some time for this exact situation...and they are heterosexuals...so what now?”

“Your right, I missed two words in my comment while typing it. Embarrassing, but I can only apologize. To clarify, let me repeat the sentence that is factually incorrect in a correct form.
"Because there is no social stigma against heterosexuality, these relationships almost never result in court cases."
Unless you're prepared to argue that every or even most relationships between teens under the age of 16, and every or most relationships between teens where one is over 16 and the other isn't result in criminal prosecution in Florida, my point remains valid. This law is indifferently enforced, unfairly punishing some teenagers for a victimless act while turning a blind eye to the majority of cases. Whether you agree with the law or not, it cannot be considered a just or fair law if most cases are ignored.
Do you consider it to add to the safety of children that those teenagers you know are listed alongside actual pedophiles and rapists as sex offenders?”
“Regardless of sexual orientation.....you had a sexual relationship with a 14 year old....a 14 YEAR OLD. There are peopel in jail for the same thing...heterosexuals. If an 18 year old had any type of relationship with my 14 year old daughter you can be sure I would either beat the living crap out of that person, or have them prosecuted.”
