dairygirl4u2c
bp_1138

(we could also consider pregnancies that are beginning to be delievered, a...

Ban Trade With China

Matthew3.14
MasturDbtor

This is a debate of whether or not trade with China should be banned. The parameters are to be set for trading with the US and trading is limited in definition to being only for tangible elements or items not including intellectual items. This was a class debate.

if a healthy infant can be saved instead of aborted later in pregnancy... it should be requried

dairygirl4u2c
Stephen_Hawkins

in cases where mother's life is at risk, but the healthy baby can be safely removed instead of aborted... this should be required. after six months or so, abortion in the US is restricted to only cases involving health of the mother. (to be sure, this includes much abuse for 'mental health' etc) if even a healthy baby MUST be aborted to save the mother, msot would agree it's the right thing to do. to be sure, however.... healthy babies are too often aborted in the name of saving the mother,...
