I once heard an example trying to define a philosophical axiom that the whole of an object is contained in a piece. For example, if you take a pie, cut a piece out of the pie, you in essence have the whole of the pie in that one piece. All that the pie contains is in that one piece. On that premise, if you take a human life at conception, all that makes up a human person already exists in that tiny embryo - to destroy it you destroy a person. Why would Senator Clinton want to speak at a University that upholds Catholic doctrine and the right to life for every human being? Why would a Catholic University give an openning to Senator Clinton who neither believes or respects Catholic teaching or the right of human life to exist from the first moment of its conception? This is not a "Catholic issue" it is a "human right's issue." If someone cannot respect life at its very beginning, how could we truly hope she/they would really stand up for the right to life at any stage of life. Given a "reason", it would seem all human life is put at risk. Does inconvinience becomes a woman's right to end a life, or emotional upset, or even a medical danger? —RoseMarie - (talk) 04:27, 15 February 2008 (UTC)RoseMarie

You anti-choice guys always avoid the tiny fact that until the brain begins to function the “thing” is nothing but a parasite in a woman's body. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.210.104.18 (talk) 09:57, 15 February 2008 (UTC)

Clinton's Speech at St Mary's Univ. Re: debate over abortion[edit]

Religious beliefs and Politics are two separate things. Mrs Clinton is only appealing to the people to vote for her. Pro-choice is just that, a choice. We as women can not allow the chuch or government to dictate what we do with our anatomy or how many children we choose to have or not. It scares me the stronghold male dominance has on us. It also concerns me the things they do to keep that. It is effident by the number of males that just can't stand the thought of voting for Hillary, simply because she is a woman. In addition, there is no reason, other than men are in charge of the Catholic church rules, that we should be allowed to be Priests.

I wish I were a woman[edit]

Then I could hold exactly the same positions that I currently hold -- that a fetus' right to live is more important than a woman's right to kill it, that there are many worthy women who I would be happy to vote for who aren't Hillary Clinton, and that there are many religions who ordain women, and if you think the Catholic Church is wrong, then join one of them -- without being called a hypocrite.

I guess she could still accuse me of being a traitor to my gender and brainwashed by the man-centric male-ocracy, and maybe she would be right. -161.88.255.139 16:16, 15 February 2008 (UTC)
