    I do not find that a good analogy. An intruder forcefully entering your home tends to have malicious intent. I unknowing trespasser would be a more apt comparison in my mind.


    That is a more apt comparison. Although, I don't see why a person should have to carry around an "unknowing trespasser" in their stomach for months. As someone said, it interferes with the right to pursue happiness. At some point, compulsion is required.

    The trouble is that most people think the needy are getting food stamps, housing vouchers, etc, so they don't give very much to charity. I think mutual-aid societies should be given more room to flourish.

    After all, yes the money is there to help. But abuse of that money creates larger problems in the long run, such as an even greater debt.

    Now, I have no idea how you would weed these people out nor can I condone spending money to research and investigate this, as that will do more harm than good.


    Many studies have been done on welfare, and comparing the statistics with all the variables can be a nightmare to make any sense out of. I think it's better to just examine the incentives in place.

    And I don't have the solution.The solution obviously lies in education,telling the truth.The question lies in how?How do we explain to the electorate at large that the country could split apart if the wealthy gets it's agenda in place,and in full.


    One alternative is to reduce the sphere of influence that (wealthy) politicians have over our lives. That is one way of reducing the impact of government getting into bed with big business.

    The OP's argument is based on rights, not religion.

    What do you mean by "try and enforce by threats and violence"?

    -Right to choose implies ownership of your own body. If you do not wish to have another living creature feeding off of your body, you have 20 weeks to make a decision.


    I would take that example further. If you own your body, then it doesn't matter whether the fetus is a human being. You would have the right to forcefully expel it from your body as if it were an intruder in your home.
