    From our Declaration of Independance:
    "...endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. "

    Which word comes first pinko's?

    LIFE

    :cool:

    Abortion was legal in the colonies. The conventional Protestant view was that abortions were allowable up until quickening, which roughly corresponded with the first trimester.

    Back up a little ways.

    First comes the definition of 'Man'.

    One can be a classical liberal and believe the mind makes the person (dead people are not people who merit the same legal rights as the living, even if they do vote).

    Hence CL and PC


    not that complicated, people...

    Jesus christ the arguments on here just get more and more dumb. It's like a bunch of children posting on here or a bunch of backwoods, inbred rednecks. It's an embarassment to human intelligence.:cuckoo:

    "Abortion was legal in the colonies. The conventional Protestant view was that abortions were allowable up until quickening, which roughly corresponded with the first trimester."

    Even if you're sources are entirely correct and true (which they are not), So what?
    How is your version of Protestantism relevant to Classical Liberalism's respect for all individual human life?
    Are you speculating that Puritanism is Liberalism?
    :eusa_eh:

    "What about the liberty of the host body?"
    Again,
    "LIFE, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness"
    Which word is it that comes before liberty?
    Are you arguing abortion only to save the life of the mother, or something more?



    "dead people are not people"
    Are you seriously proposing that the in-utero baby is merely a lump of dead human tissue?

    Yea, our founding fathers issued a grant to John Hopkins University to do a DNA study on embryo development, that was the same week George Washington's doctors treat his quinsy using calomel (ingesting mercurous chloride) and bloodletting...

    Maybe you should instead use your tiny little pea brain to contemplate that 'endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life' would signify that health care is a RIGHT, not a privilege...
