Not to derail the thread, so please read this and then get back to the topic, but I've been thinking of setting up a sister site like Bullshido, about social issues like this.
What do you guys think about a Bullshido-esque site devoted to current affairs, politics, racism, and other social issues? Sort of one, big version of the off topic forum?

Seriously though, if you think this site gets a lot of traffic, whoa! Could be very cool. Definitely has potential.

I think the off-topic section is sufficient for us, so long as the posts there don't outnumber GD, but how would the sister site form a member base, and what would the hook be that hasn't already been done before (i.e. no holds barred social discussion like takes place on FARK and other boards)?
I think it would be good though, if a population of martial artists frequented such a forum, and by sharing their insights with the general public, were able to increase the popularity, or at least familiarity, of the arts, NHB, and the like.

I only agree with it when its celebrities who would rather illegally adopt babies from strange foreign countries instead, doing it.

If there are no abortions, where am I supposed to get my stem cells from?!

Good point. On that note, if I were to get you a foetus or two, do you think you could grow me a rottie?

I think it should be up to the mother, for the most part. Especially where cases of rape or incest are concerned.
One particularly disgusting incident occurred in Edmonton about 3 years ago. A man had admitted his pregnant 13 year old daughter into the Royal Alexandria Hospital for an abortion.
Because of the way he was acting, one of the nurses called the police to investigate. After asking a few questions, they found out that the father of this baby was actually the girl's father. I believe the man is now on trial for a number of charges stemming from the incident.
Truly depraved and terrible, isn't it? So, keeping this in mind, does anyone here who thinks abortion is a bad idea still maintain this opinion?
Before you answer, consider what kind of life this child might have if he were to be born. His life would be hell the moment he was born.

What you're saying is it's ok to kill a newborn child.

But the question seems to be "is a fetus a child?".
I say no, since they have no funeral for the abortion. Even if there was a miscarriage....still no funeral.
Isnt it a living person?
