You're more epic than if all internet memes from the past, present, and future were all rolled up into a katamari ball and exploded in a supernuclear blast that wiped all Twilight-related materials from the entire space-time continuum; and then Picard double-facepalmed.

I got a good opening argument for that.

"Your awesome is as awesome as homemade banana bread...while it's still warm"

Oh god I have the flu and...I'll respond to the debate when I feel better.

Right now the best response I can come up with is "On man yeah that's totally true, dudette."

aaaggghhhh I said I wasn't gonna let you sucker me into a debate tonight because my shitty internet would drive me crazy. Now here I am yanking my hair out and screaming invectives at SQL and 404 errors onscreen. You are a wily and seductive wench, you are.

AHA so it was you!

I was thinking as I wrote that post that "Hmn, I do know ONE person who came from the foster system and turned out allright...who was it again?"

However, I used to attend a Christian school that decided a great thing for the students to do would be to volunteer at the local juvie hall, and a few other places. Almost all the kids in there were foster-system products. They all knew each other and were friends and regarded the system as a social outlet more than a punishment method. They were all heavily dependent on the criminal lifestyle and the formalized justice system. To them, a life in the slammer rated about the same as a college education to the rest of the world...an accomplishment to work for, as it would provide a living for the rest of life...but pretty much guaranteed, not particularly difficult.

Perhaps that biased me against, but I've never seen any statistical analysis that state my opinions are wrong. Again, I wish I could provide statistics to sum up what I want to say but can't find good words for. Really, it's a multifaceted opinion, factoring in both foster children AND the kids who come from, baseline poverty enforced on people who can't afford their kids but feel obligated to try and raise them anyway and the resulting resentment and abuse-prone environment that stems from that. Factoring both how many criminals come from the foster or adoptive systems, and how many of the foster/adoptive system children grow up to be criminals; ie; the correlation flows in both directions.

All children should have a right to live; but all children should know they are loved and wanted; and we simply do not live in that utopia. It is up to us to find the least repugnant solution to this problem.

Also, people who use the 'rape victim' argument for pro-choice should be shot in the face. Rape victims only account for a small percentage of total abortions. I'm pretty sure they're beaten out by 'medical requirement', as in cases where the pregnancy, for whatever complication or reason, poses an active threat to the mother's health and even life. If my internet was working, I'd do a fact-check on this and be able to post percentages with citations...but alas, it is not, so I am without any supporting evidence beyond "I remember reading..."

Not to mention; rape being something that already calls for court involvement; even if pro-life laws are enacted I am quite sure it would be well within the legal range of a court to order that an abortion be allowed a victim who becomes pregnant from their abuse, since said court will already have established that a rape DID occur and the sexual contact and resulting pregnancy were therefore and by definition forced upon the mother without her consent and against her choice. I consider rape victims to be a non-sequiter argument relying too much on emotionalism and not enough on significant statistical backup.

I can only argue pro-choice. It's not that I don't think babies have a right to live; it's that I think babies have a right to live a QUALITY life, and that's something that many parents, most of the adoption system, and the entire foster system, cannot give them. I'm always a believer in Quality over Quantity; I cannot comprehend how someone could condemn innocent unborns to lives of emotional anguish and worse; living on welfare at the expense of taxpayers who did NOT get pregnant unintentionally; or even worse; crime...especially not when those innocents could have been quietly laid to rest before they developed consciousness. It's not a question of "Murder or not murder" it's a question of "Everybody dies eventually, do we torture these first, or do it painlessly in-utero?"

Unfortunately, my internet connection is driving me bananas with being super massively slow. I'm thinking I may have to ask for a rain check on this...

I do have a few other topics I like to argue, such as eugenics, assisted suicide for the terminally ill, death penalty, genetic modification of food plants/animals, maybe even likelihood of alien life. If you'd rather do one of them, you've maybe got a few days to think it over.

I'll PROBABLY be online tomorrow night, but I can't be 100% positive about that, sadly.

That'd be an interesting one. I have no particularly strong feelings either way about the matter; so I as well can take either side of the issue.

As an ex-smoker, I have to say, I'd be a tat more comfortable on the pro-legalizing side; but I could argue quite effectively for status quo also. You?
