Copy of flyer distributed at Peter Jennings!

This is a copy of a flyer that was placed on all the cars in the parking lot
at today's peter jennings KATU "count down to war"
The cops at first didn't want to let us in to the high school, but later said we could come in if we didn't distribute flyers or have posters. We snuck them in and tagged this flyer, as well as a few others, on all the cars.

there are more abortions in the US every year than that..

Whether or not abortion is murder is a separate issue, besides how does this negate the stats posted above?

Xtain wingnuts 10.Feb.2003 15:14

I.Rate

These Xtian wingnuts can't resist getting their agenda and false reasoning into every debate.

1. A foetus is not a human being, it cannot sustain life on it's own outside it's host, ergo a foetus is a parasite.
A creature that draws its sustenance from it's host.
Abortion is not murder, it is a woman's choice whether or not to carry a foetus to term. The foetus does not belong to the male, it is not him or part of him, and requires nothing of the male, nor is dependent upon the male for sustenance or life.

2. Analogizing abortion to the wanton murder of REAL people, especially women and children, as will surely follow the Awe and Shock tactics of Rumsfeld when they blast Baghdad with nuclear tipped Tomahawk Cruise Missles is a not only a logical fallacy (false analogy) but a barbaric anti human act.

3. And for those chicken hawks, FReepers and Patriots, think of all the sons and daughters who will die, in the slaughter, or suffer and die in the aftermath after they move through the nuclear wasteland produced by our tactical nukes and depleted uranium weapons.

The Vets of Gulf War I are suffering "mysterious" illness and lukemia from exposure to depleted uranium munitions.

xian wingnuts? where? 13.Feb.2003 21:06

nefer

yer a jerk! a "foetus" as u put it is life. talking a life is murder! abotionists are murders!! fetuses are humans. they're not parasites even if the body cosiders it one! have respect for life u retard! sldiers are murderers too!!

A fair question to the anti-abortionist 14.Feb.2003 23:33

Beemer

So, pray tell, due to these sanctions. How many Iraqi foetii have perished? Maybe this flyer isn't damning enough for you? Find out, and add a line please. I will be most grateful for your help. - Unless you are of course playing the devils disciple over this, which I do not for one moment doubt!
