How is it that a person can think their reproductive system is 0% my business yet 100% my financial responsibility as a tax payer? Just askin.

I don't expect you to pay for waxing sessions, if that's what you're getting at.
"See now Oblivion shimmering all around us, its very tranquility deadlier than tempest. How little all our keels have troubled it."
- Lord Dunsany -

"The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born? "
- W. B. Yeats -

1) I find your claim dubious.
2) the same way in which I disagree with air strikes in various parts of the world, but am 100% responsible for as a tax payer.
Here we have an advocate for Islamic arranged marriages demonstrating that children can consent to sex.

In response to 2) Even if you disagree with how far we go to carry out said duty, do you discern between the duty to uphold natural rights and sustaining them? Like just because I have a right to buy a mansion does the government have a duty to buy it for me? If not why is what you want any different?

You do not have a right to reproduce or have sex. If you do then you have no idea what a right is.

You do not have a right to reproduce or have sex. If you do then you have no idea what a right is.

What.. you don't have a right to have sex? That is an extension of the right to liberty, as is the right to reproduce, both are actions, liberty is unrestricted action, we can only restrict liberty insofar as it violates others rights or if there is a significant harm to societal welfare. Please tell me more about how I don't know what a right is..
