I just lost a debate to someone way lower than me, and I don't think it even touched it. Do ELO's even go down? It's not something I pay attention to but I don't think I've ever seen it

Who cares. It doesn't mean anything.

They can but not because of losing. It just recalculates, but I don't think losses are a negative

It means that a majority of the time someone is not dense enough to debate that abortion is murder

nevermind the fact that there have been several cases now where people have been charged with murders for illegally causing an abortion. Right?

winning or losing against you and your vote bombing pansie friends will not change the fact that abortions are murder AT LEAST in the situations like the one I just shared.

Ever notice how these types of things are normally said by those who have a bad ELO?
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

Who cares. It doesn't mean anything.

It means that a majority of the time someone is not dense enough to debate that abortion is murder

nevermind the fact that there have been several cases now where people have been charged with murders for illegally causing an abortion. Right?

Because it was murder at the point of viability. Which is not murder in all cases

You really don't have a clue. Do you.

Viable at 8-10 weeks?

We went through this in the debate. If you want to debate it again, I would be happy to hand you another loss

winning or losing against you and your vote bombing pansie friends will not change the fact that abortions are murder AT LEAST in the situations like the one I just shared.

you are still dense enough to believe it lol

I'm obviously less dense than you are about it. It will be interesting to see how many murder convictions of the killers of prenatal children it will take for the Supreme Court to reconcile the more recent fetal homicide laws with their own haphazard ruling on Roe.
