That's our opinion. A lot of people will disagree, including my grandparents. Sigh, let's hope they are not in the majority.

The Support of Euthanasia is based on three precepts:

1) Lack of faith in medical technology and knowledge. In the near future, one injection will repair a person's brain completely.

2) Underestimating the value of life. The only life not worth living is one that threatens the safety, well-being, and life of others that are innocent. Terri Schindler shouldn't die, her life is still worth a lot. But I could name a lot of people whose life has nearly no value.

3) A desire to control ones life or the life of others. To play God has always been man's first temptation. Life is not ours. It is God's. Although He doesn't actively control when we die, He can intervene if He chooses too. That's why miracles occur all the time even in something as horrific as 9/11 or the tsunami. We are not supposed to be depriving each other of life. We should not even be executing thosewho deprive the life/lives of the innocent. As a matter of fact, we are not even supposed to die. But when man left paradise, a host of forces now have control over his fragile candle light.

As humans, it is our duty to protect as many candle lights as possible and snuff out the black flames of others who are a danger to the safety of those with bright orange/yellow lights. One day we may not have to snuff them, just merely hold them. But until that day comes, the safest custody for those whose candles burn with the black flame of evil is the grave.

The Women's Movement hates the Bible and hates God and hates that He has asked us to LOVE and SERVE and be a SERVANT to others. This is what they have always intended to undermine and destroy. He told us to Love others, to lay down our lives for others, that there was no greater love than to lay down our life for a friend. And who are our best friends? Our husbands and our children and He calls us to love them so much and serve them --- And rebellious feminist hates this!!


Mat 20:27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:

Mat 20:28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Mat 23:11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

Well, actually, I know quite about about how sex selection works, since I'm a doctor of biochemistry, and learning that kind of stuff was necessary to get my degree.

In humans, the sex is determined by the X and Y chromosome present in the sperm. But there's more to it than that. There are genetic conditions that prevent the development of a zygote into a boy, even when it has the Y chromosome, because it cannot use the male hormones. So the baby appears to be a girl, but (s)he will never have children.

The article you posted here is interesting. The only way that I can see it being practical to select for sex at such an early stage is if you are trying to get pregnant by IVF, then you can select which embryos to implant. Even then, I think I would tell the doctor, put in one of each, and maybe I'll have twins. My cousin did that, and she now has two lovely children (although the boy has some severe medical problems).

The spouse who makes the most money--usually the man--fares far better after divorce than the one who makes little or nothing, as well as the children for whom she usually retains primary custody.

That is patently false. Feminist Lenore Walker's statistics WRT to men having more money after divorce have been proven to be contrived (made up) many, many years ago but still the clueless repeat the bogus femspeak as though it were Gospel.

So far as fathers being routinely discriminated against in child custody matters, that remains the obvious truth. Many to most are legally run out of their children's lives when the mother so chooses to do it. Under those conditions many family court judges are as helpful to mommy as Judge Greer was to Michael Schiavo yet no one in the MSM mentions it.

The rest of the article was spot on.

It's a form of invisibility. Pretty cool. I like the idea of being the guy lurking in the hadows, eavesdropping on friends and foes alike.

Like this guy:

Samuel Fisher. NSA.

The War on Terror: the way it should be, and probably is being, fought.

Beware the Triclops.

"Where is Kombayn Nikoladze?"

Aim. Breathe in. Hold breath. Pull Trigger. Reload. Repeat.

The balaclava mask makes him look cool and also makes him harder to see.

OUCH!

One of the few games you can beat up communists. :)

Oh, those look like the kinds of games my son plays. I can't play them because I get motion sickness very easily.

Interesting. Virtually every game has the "seizure warning" on it. I always find it hard to believe that someone could choke while playing a rousing game of Computer chess but better safe than sorry I guess.

I think if the games have a lot of sudden movements, flashing lights, and loud noises, it could bring on seizures or sickness. This definitely applies to more modern games because vidoe game production have been elevated to the level of movie making with cinematography, scenery, casting, voice acting, visual effects, and storyline. As opposed to picking up mushrooms and stomping on turtles, modern games like Halo and Half Life could easily be made into movies. Drooooolllllllllllllllll...

Ahem, um ,anyway... The game that I was talking about in my previous post is called Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell. That's right. Tom Clancy. He helped came up with the plot, characters, and technical advisory. If you ever watched this game, it is very clear that this could easily be made into a novel. SC is a pretty slow game, where you rely more on your cunning and stealth than your firepower and brute strength. You spend a lot of time lurking in the shadows and avoiding or incapacitating enemies. If you play this game really well, you will kill less than ten people while other games the blood just flows out of your monitor. It is quite a cerebral exercise and I sincerely believe that a) you will not get sick from playing it and b) you'll become hooked.

Besides, what other game out there lets you whack goons from the People's Oppression Chinese communist Fascist Army. :)

=== My cousin did that, and she now has two lovely children (although the boy has some severe medical problems).


Were they unable to detect them in utero so he could culled?

Did she consider suing the fertility clinic for malpractice in selecting a defective from what were probably other, more perfect, siblings?

It's funny ... I have a marine biologist/physiologist friend who was chatting with me about this yesterday. I'm terribly weak on math and science though both fascinate me and I'd completely forgotten sex, via chromosomes, might be the easiest of all selections to make. I appreciate your pointing out it's not perfect though and I'll look forward to your informed opinion on things in the future if you happen to be around.

Regards.

I don't know that my cousin would have wanted to "cull" her son.

Did she consider suing the fertility clinic for malpractice in selecting a defective from what were probably other, more perfect, siblings?

As far as I know, she did not sue or consider suing. At the time, a little over 4 years ago, I'm not sure if the technology was yet developed to detect genetic defects before implantation. Since that technology is here now, I would certainly want the embryos screened before implantation, if I do IVF at some point. She still has some embryos in storage; if she decides to go ahead and have more children, I don't know if she will have the embryos screened first.

I appreciate your pointing out it's not perfect though and I'll look forward to your informed opinion on things in the future if you happen to be around.

And I'll be happy to share my opinion!

that is why I never even look at the keywords. Too many morons that are afraid to say out loud what they think of the post. It lets them be an anonymous ass that way.
