    So maybe you can answer then... Since this was about Buttigeg, exactly how is he weak and hurting? Or as Sam said "the poor, the helpless, or the stranger."

    These are not the same.
    Technically, this is not true. Most abortions occur long before the fetus even has a fully functioning brain. 2/3 before the heart has fully formed. While I am against abortion in most cases, this sort of inaccurate rhetoric about abortion is an appeal to emotion, not to reason.

    You seem confused. This question has no logical relationship to any of my replies, or any of the posts that led up to my reply. No-one, including myself, has implied or otherwise indicated buttigieg is weak or hurting.

    So, you're going to revert to the old liberal line "it's not even a human until...."? I have to admit, I am a LITTLE surprised.

    Since 2015 is the last year that we apparently have the numbers for, and there were, according to the CDC, 638,169 abortions from 49 of the 52 reporting areas, just how many of those do you think were okay?

    And people in comas don't have what can be called "a fully functioning brain" and depending on what you mean by that, neither do millions of people suffering from various neurological disorders. Is it okay to euthanize them as well?

    You challenged my response to Sam talking about "It is not weak to love those that are hurting." Since what triggered it was about Buttigeg then it seems fair to ask just how he is hurting (I'll drop the weak part since I misread that)?

    Or was your response merely an attempt to deflect and distract?
