if i had a dollar…

If I had a brick

sorry if I’m off topic but I’m so sick of people characterizing violent crime as “musta been mental illness” it throws us mentally ill people under the bus by perpetuating the stereotype that we’re dangerous

cant we just say there was something going on with that one guy?

ur totally right, many men don’t react violently when faced with rejection.
it was only this one guy.












Do you know what statistically insignificant means? Do you know what lurking variables are? Do you know what cherry picking is? Do you know what confirmation bias is? Because At least three of those four of those things are in play here.
Arguing that, because some people in a given population behave in a given way, the entire population must be designated as being also that way is a ludicrous statement and constitutes profiling. If I said “don’t try to tell me muslims aren’t violent, look at all the muslim terrorists!” I’d get accused of being discriminatory and bigoted, and rightly so. The same can be said of “all black people are criminals” or any other issue in which a relatively small portion of a population, due to lurking variables (things OTHER the population-determining factor which cause the observed effect) commits an act which we find wrong and then characterize the entire population as opposed to considering a lurking variable.

So I was talking with my grandfather today and we touched on the topic of cricket. Apparently, the person who uses the bat continues in his position, scoring as many points as he wants, until the bowler has knocked the whickets over. Games have been known to go on for two days in the professional circuit.

That was when I realized it.

This is where JKR got the idea for the golden snitch.

Holy shit…abortion is not murder. Murder is legally defined as the intentional killing of a human being with malice afterthought. (Malice meaning the intention or desire to do evil)Women don’t get abortions because they are these horrible people who like or even want to kill. They all have legitimate reasons. Pro-lifers don’t even really care about the fetus, they just care that it’s born…after that the baby can starve and freeze for all they care. They’re just pro-birth.

Exactly why do you think that abortion differs from murder? I want to have an honest discussion here.
Yes, we do care about the fetus, please don’t make claims with neither backing nor relevance to a discussion. If a parent does not properly care for a child, that parent is punished and the child taken away to somewhere (theoretically) better for it.

Because if you’re going with the life begins at insemination thing then statistically every mother is also probably a murderer. 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miscarriage
"The National Institutes of Health report that “around half of all fertilized eggs die and are lost (aborted) spontaneously”
You can check the sources there or dig through your own. I don’t feel like pulling a bunch again for like the 80th time.

Here’s the thing: miscarriage, while tragic, differs fundamentally from abortion in the respect that abortion is a deliberate act whereas miscarriage has no intent with it, it is nobody’s fault since nobody chose to do anything. By the definition of murder you gave of “the intentional killing of a human being with malice afterthought.Murder is legally defined as the intentional killing of a human being with malice afterthought,” this comparison has no weight at all.

Good, now replace miscarriage with manslaughter in your own argument and it still works. That should tell you something.

Actually, that’s not correct. Manslaughter is defined as “when a death is caused by a violation of a non-felony, such as reckless driving” -http://dictionary.law.com/Default.aspx?selected=1209
This has nothing in common with a tragic accident of biology. The mother in the case of miscarriage has no choice in the matter, and has no way of stopping it.

last time I check a miscarriage isn’t a felony. You can be guilty of man slaughter and not actually lift a finger. Cars brakes go out while you left it parked? That’s man slaughter. Even though you weren’t in the vehicle. Roof caved in on someone while in your house? A kid eating something he’s allergic to while in your house? I could be here days listing hypotheticals but the point is so even though you did nothing, you are in fact still guilty. The only difference between that, and a miscarriage is that that a miscarriage isn’t criminalized. So by the own definition of manslaughter you have provided abortions are not murder, because they are not criminalized.
So lets recap here.
You can accept that manslaughter should regard all accidental deaths. Just as murder should regard all intentional deaths. Therefor classifying miscarriage as manslaughter. 
Or you can accept that something not being criminalized is proper grounds for it not being classified as a crime. Therefor divorcing miscarriage from manslaughter but also abortion from murder.
Or you can accept that life does not begin at fertilization and abortion and miscarriages are neither manslaughter nor murder. 

Actually, a non-felony means something that you aren’t allowed to do which is not a felony; things like assault fall into this category. If the death was not planned beforehand, it is manslaughter.
Manslaughter does not and should not include accidental deaths; manslaughter includes all deaths caused by an individual’s action that the individual did not plan beforehand. Things like miscarriage don’t fall into this category since the individual had no choice in the matter and could not have prevented it.
Actually, whether or not something is presently criminalized is irrelevant to whether or not it ought to be criminalized.
I most certainly do not need to accept that. Moreover, how would this follow from the arguments you made? None of them even touched upon the beginning of life.
