Really like Carlin, but he's wrong here. This tired old argument just isn't logically sound.

"It's a question pro-aborts endlessly badger pro-lifers with: "If you so badly want babies to be born, how many are you willing to adopt?" They hope that by casting pro-lifers as somehow not doing enough to give "unwanted" children a home, they can divert attention away from the deaths they're responsible for and guilt a few of us into shutting up. If that reminds you of a child snapping, "If you love it so much, why don't you marry it?," that's because the challenge is about as sophisticated.

Sorry, but moral high ground doesn't come that cheaply, the primary reason being that it doesn't change the tiny details of (a) who's making children they don't want in the first place, and (b) who's actually killing them and perpetuating that killing. Can anyone think of any other scenario where "I should be able to harm someone unless you aid me in some way" would be taken even remotely seriously as moral reasoning? If I forbid somebody from stealing my neighbor's car, am I therefore obligated to let the would-be thief borrow my own?"

I only have one "advanced" degree and it's in management. Hardly makes me any sort of knowledgeable on the scientific aspect of things. I just have common sense.

If we were simultaneously supporting programs that supported children as well as defending a fetus's right to live, that'd be one thing. But I don't see Carlin as being that far off, honestly. If it's extra fat, it is a conservative's goal to chop it wherever they can.

I will say, judgement on "deadbeat" parents (edgelord term for "undersupported/ill-prepared") tends to swing in from both sides, but I've never seen a Democrat shy away from funding after-school programs for at-risk kids or, you know... health care and insurance... Food programs? The answer is typically "Go private/volunteer" from the right. Where if that actually worked, social programs would be out of a job. Right?

Not to say social programs are perfect. But, again, if it was better elsewhere, social programs wouldn't exist.

Yeah that old sophist trick Jon Stewart used to employ. Make a point, albeit in a funny way. When someone challenges you on it, "I'm just a comedian bro, why you taking what I say seriously?"

George Carlin was a brilliant man. More than a comic. He's wrong here though.

He's probably trained to make those assessments.

Comedian. Sophist. Lol.

Again I agree with abortion when it's not used for birth control. If a 13 year old girl was sexually assaulted and became pregnant if she chose not to carry she should be well within her right not to. She did not ask for it! That's just an example...

Yes, women should be the only ones allowed to make decisions about baby murders.

We are probably brothers. We are definitely brothers from another mother.

I'm pro-death. I'm for abortion, death penalty, euthanasia.

How many here are pro-life and pro death penalty? If so, why? Isn't it true that the death penalty has taken innocent lives?
