It's fun and interesting to hear you say you like to argue, SN. :) Have you ever changed your mind about something through argument? ;)
It is the only way that I ever change my mind, is by arguing about it. I don't come here to be right. I come here to be challenged. Often times I know most of the information that others might present but have a completely different stance on it. If after we hash it out a little bit I think they might still have a point, it changes my opinion.

Seriously, sometimes I stumble onto writings that I may have done 5 or 6 years ago and not even realize that I wrote them. Sometimes I'm amazed at how wise they are Before I realize that it was me who wrote them. Sometimes I have the same opinion in a completely different form. That might sound strange but I do. For example, I now publicly hold a pro-choice standard on the concept of abortion, but if you listen to my argument it's still very much about for a life. It's not that I'm unwilling to save the children, but I don't think we should do so by stripping women of their sovereignty.

So my stance in my argument is about how can we save the innocence without violating a person's sovereignty. So did I actually change, I think so, but not really in my intent.

Interesting. It reminds of a TBM friend who was pro-choice; and then there was an atheist writer- Nat Hentoff- who was pro-life. I'm a instinctive fence sitter. On most issues I'm drawn to the middle, at least that's how I think of myself. I could be wrong. :roll:
God is Love. God is Truth

Everyone finds their place. I'm a both pro-choice and pro-life.

On the subject of women having sovereignty over their body I am extreme. We kill to protect our freedoms and quantity of life all the time. Why when it comes to woman's right to protect herself do we hesitate?

But on the issue is pro-life, it is a shame on the entire culture that we kill our unborn. But we should be pro-life before the child is conceived. Men/boys who plant seeds in hostile gardens should be held accountable to. Unwanted pregnancies shouldn't happen.
