A friend of mine, a Reverend (yeah, one that has a church AND sheeple) posted this very hilarious meme-pic of Andrea Bocelli and some quote that he supposedly said that goes like this, “A young pregnant wife has been hospitalized for a simple attack of appendicitis. The doctors had to apply ice to her stomach and when the treatments ended the doctors suggested she abort the child, they told her it was the best solution because the baby would be born with some disability but the young brave wife decided not to abort, and the child was born. That woman was my Mother and I was the child.”
To which I responded with sarcasm and maybe a drop of wit… but mostly sarcasm… however, it was friendly sarcasm.
Then someone on this friends list jumped in with, “I believe in babies rights… I just do.”
He followed this inanity with “It is only a baby if the woman wants it to be, otherwise it is nothing more than a dispensible inconvenience.”
To which I responded with, “Those are great opinions Dave, but unless you are a pregnant woman? They should remain NOTHING MORE than YOUR opinions.. they sure as HELL shouldn’t be laws controlling another humans body AGAINST THEIR WILL… a thinking, breathing, ACTUAL human…”
Now it’s important to state here that I use caps as a form of emote. I like to point out the pieces of my text that if I had said them in person, they would have been emoted or verbally highlighed… stated with some intensity due to my opinion and belief.
Well, Captain Baby Champion steps in with the following:
“What Brian, your statements are fact? I have a right to express my opinions, you certainly express yours. I have seen your CAPTIAL LETTER rants before, in fact, that is all I ever see you do, is rant. I will continue to exercise my right to express my opinions, on here or anywhere else I please; whether you like it or not. Abortion is wrong in most cases. Fetuses are often pulled out of wombs, living, crying, breathing and ACTUAL human beings. The only difference is that when an aborted child is yanked from the womb, it is usually in pieces and if it its little heart is still beating, all those parts are left piled up in the specimen pan until the heart stops.”
To which I am responding via a tumblr post… (it’s important to note here, I have this feeling that once this response is visible on the thread that the OP (my friend the Reverend) will remove either MY posts or the entire OT, which is why I am saving this discussion for posterity.)
Let’s take this guys post apart one piece at a time.
