    Hence the word "choice". I'm pro-choice, but I would not get an abortion if I were female. But it isn't my body to decide.

    That's not virtue signaling, it's just a fact. Two competing interests, a person and inside them a potential person. The person wins. Within limits.

    And I don't volunteer to perform the abortion, same as I don't volunteer to do lots of dirty/unpleasant jobs. I don't think you need be required to perform said task to support a right to said task being legally and safely available.

    Ultimately, legal abortion doesn't force anyone who is against abortion to have abortions. The "make it illegal" side is 100% interfering with others lives.

    nor do I see anti-abortion people offering to adopt and take care of the baby throughout its miserable short life.
    In fairness, many Christian do adopt, and do contribute to charities that help unwanted kids. But certainly not the majority, no.

    Reading the FOX News comments section on articles re: the mass shooting in Buffalo is seriously enough for me to lose any remaining faith in humanity.

    It's interesting that the people who most loudly proclaim their godliness and Christianity are, without question, the least Christian-values people in human history.

    The level of racial hatred is just off the f'ing charts.

    At one point you could maybe claim they're Russian troll farms but I'm not sure the ruble commands enough buying power for that to still be the case.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Its been what, 4 or 5 mass shootings within the last 2w? The only "unusual" one is the church attack which apparently was done by a Chinese man due to hate of/against Taiwan if I understood it correctly.

    Just remember that it was always there. They just feel like they don't have to hide it any more.

    Any community pretending to be idiots eventually attracts enough actual idiots who aren't pretending.

    Yup, before it played to the well known scenario of:
    - say moronic thing
    - people respond
    - lol, jk guys, i was just trolling

    Nowadays last step is replaced by rush to defend by likeminded.

    I mean in NL biohazard material, including all human remains, are either used for research or burned. Of course i doubt its done at a power plant, does a crematorium hook up power back to a power grid? If so is it a 'green' crematorium?

    In the smooth brain conspiracy nutters head its really just a very small leap.

    Uhhhhhhh...

    Legal experts responded with alarm Monday to a ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court's right-wing majority that could lead to the indefinite imprisonment and even execution of people who argue their lawyers didn't provide adequate representation after convictions in state court.

    Justice Sonia Sotomayor—joined by the other two liberals on the court—also blasted the majority opinion in Shinn v. Martinez Ramirez, writing in her scathing dissent that the decision is both "perverse" and "illogical."

    The case involved two men, David Martinez Ramirez and Barry Lee Jones, who are on death row in Arizona. The majority determined that inmates can't present new evidence in federal court to support a claim that their post-conviction attorney in state court was ineffective, in violation of the Sixth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which affirms the right to "the assistance of counsel" in criminal all prosecutions.

    "A federal habeas court may not conduct an evidentiary hearing or otherwise consider evidence beyond the state court record based on ineffective assistance of state post-conviction counsel," Justice Clarence Thomas wrote for the majority, adding that "serial relitigation of final convictions undermines the finality that 'is essential to both the retributive and deterrent functions of criminal law.'"

    Sotomayor, meanwhile, wrote that "the Sixth Amendment guarantees criminal defendants the right to the effective assistance of counsel at trial. This court has recognized that right as 'a bedrock principle' that constitutes the very 'foundation for our adversary system' of criminal justice."

    "Today, however, the court hamstrings the federal courts' authority to safeguard that right. The court's decision will leave many people who were convicted in violation of the Sixth Amendment to face incarceration or even execution without any meaningful chance to vindicate their right to counsel," she warned, also noting that the ruling "all but overrules two recent precedents," Martinez v. Ryan and Trevino v. Thaler.

    In a piece for Slate highlighting how the ruling "will cause profound suffering and perhaps even death as people are denied their constitutional rights," University of Michigan Law School professor Leah Litman declared that the majority "took a wrecking ball to those decisions."

    This is the procedure we're talking about here and tbh there's no happy ending to this either way (Induction Abortion).
