in action…meaning their actions. I don’t have to have proof to tell you that you can get contraceptives and abortions at Planned Parenthood. That they give money to embryonic stem cell research which has yet to come up with one cure for anything, while adult stem cell research has racked up a total of 47 cures. Plus, I don’t usually carry a camera around to document what I’ve been seeing for the past few years, but here look at the exhibit for yourself:
Dare you to take a look through the entire exhibit.[/quote]
So, let me summarise: no evidence in support on to what was posted at the start of the thread; i.e. no evidence of IPPF official involvement/endorsement with regards to the video clip posted. Yet, no evidence needed, all those evils are evidenced by all the stuff you see they’ve done and are doing. Fair enough. While I can’t assess the personal experience - I find the lack of evidence posted in a thread regarding their alleged views without a bit of an analysis of what they actually say, while at the same time demonising ‘liberals’ for their alleged ignorance of facts … inconsistent.
That is then followed up by yet another link to a non-IPPF site - now with some neat attempt at eliciting an emotional or moral reaction. Let’s be clear - we’re not discussing IPPF and their policies (and their consequences) here - the lack of an official IPPF position in the thread is indicative of this. We’re discussing an utter lack of evidence to support a claim in which the main issue is the irrationality of an alleged position. Yet, it seems to be enough to get people to get excited, angry and righteous in their indignation. That’s what makes this thread so moronic.
Mak…you’re arguing against a straw man. I never said IPPF was officially involved in this event. So, you can take your argument somewhere else. And, I ask – show me where I said this. I watched the full video, I wish I would have ripped the video before YouTube took it down. I suppose you don’t find it consistent because only empirical evidence can prove something, right?
I gave a personal anecdote about what I have dealt with. I never said these people were PP, I said these people express verbally what PP does, PP deals with abortions, birth control, embryonic stem cell research. Why would I have to prove IPPF was official involved in this event, when I never said they were? Even though there is empirical evidence (of course you won’t find the studies and evidence I am talking about on a IPPF site, they won’t post science against themselves) that shows the harm in all those things. And, sure what’s wrong with soliciting an emotional reaction to an injustice? I’m guessing you didn’t look at the exhibit, that is fine. It is a wretched thing, but hey. It’s empirical evidence, that is what abortion is, those studies are evidence of what happens when you get an abortion, &c.
