    Once again, have you not been paying attention over the past few years?

    Man, this is such a fucking meaningless statement.

    Regulated how? In what way? Will they actually improve safety? Will they expand access? Will it limit access?

    "regulations" is meaningless, you need to specify what types of regulations you're cryptically hinting at.
    Well, ask the people pushing those regulations, they seem to be very proud of them.

    Those regulations have long ago been covered. Wider hallways, mandatory ultrasounds, admitting privileges, and even restrictions based on gestation.

    If you think abortion restrictions are a fantasy, then you haven't been paying attention.

    Already have, it was around the time you were calling me an anarchist.

    Yep, and they will be even more regulated in the next decade in the United States.
    Liar. You confirmed it in this thread. For instance, my desire to actually do something to block such actions is painted by you as being opposed to liberty. That’s you openly supporting the abortion restrictions existing. Add in you saying you support the group’s right to push such legislation through even more lax election laws. Add in you supporting the access to any such clinic coming with tolls. Yeah, you’ve shown us all how two faced you are. You claim to oppose legislation that you openly desire more of. You aren’t morally superior by saying you oppose things when you don’t do anything to actively oppose them. What you actively do supports them. Feel free to point out where my reasoning is wrong. We’ll all be waiting for your lip service with nothing backing it up.

    Liar. I shilled for an industry. Which has benefited from the legislation. The only gigantic corporation that is being shilled for is the one you support. You know, the only one that has an exemption. Thanks to their money. Meanwhile, as has been pointed out, the industry has grown. If you really cared you’d be pointing at prohibition which is the real roadblock to new companies.

    Naw dog, I'm asking you. Again, you keep trying to deflect every time you get asked questions about things you post. Their your posts and your words you typed. If you can't answer for them, then just copy/paste from elsewhere so we know you're not actually saying anything.

    Some of which we've addressed already, and some of which you haven't addressed as to why we should take the notion that these regulations are for the safety of patients seriously.

    The way you speak of regulations lacks any specificity, nuance, subtlety, or really any basic understanding of what they are. You speak of them generally as if they're some restrictive bogeyman that needs to generally be gotten rid of.

    It’s weird how he refuses to even try to dispute the counterpoints. He just sticks his fingers in his ears like a first grader.

    Ask the people making the initial argument, dog.

    The people pushing it are claiming that, and they will likely have the votes to make them legally stick. And, as has been discussed, the government is the arbiter in such things, and is the final justification.

    That’s you dog. You’re making false claims that nobody agrees with and then claim other people made them.

    I was literally opposing this legislation JD was pushing.

    So, I guess you can take JD off that list.

    You literally don’t. You say you do, but you support the ability for corporations to purchase legislation. Or did you forget that’s what you support?

    He's pretty much a shining exemplar of deregulation. He had the liberty to run his legal business anyway he wanted.

    Speaking of which how about that deregulated opioid industry?

    The GOP will at least deregulate other stuff.

    How's those electricity prices in Texas working out? There's low taxes everywhere in the Deep South! Florida has almost no taxes at all. Its a veritable liberty bonanza. Surely that must be worth decreased abortion access right?

    Typical ploy; Libertarian logic 101
    Libertarians are for "individual rights", and against "force" and "fraud" - just as THEY define it. Their use of these words, however, when examined in detail, is not likely to accord with the common meanings of these terms. What person would proclaim themselves in favor of "force and fraud"? One of the little tricks Libertarians use in debate is to confuse the ordinary sense of these words with the meaning as "terms of art" in Libertarian axioms. They try to set up a situation where if you say you're against "force and fraud", then obviously you must agree with Libertarian ideology, since those are the definitions. If you are in favor of "force and fraud", well, isn't that highly immoral? So you're either one of them, or some sort of degenerate (note the cultish aspect again), one who doesn't think "force and fraud must be banished from human relationships". In a phrase I'll probably find myself repeating "I am not making this up". It's important to realized that what might sound like hyperbole or overstatement really, truly, will be found when dealing with Libertarian arguments.

    Again, no. You repeated it so clearly you think it has validity. Why? I'm responding to you, not someone else. Stop deflecting every time someone tries to get you to start being more specific about your views.

    First off, the Peoples Democratic Republic of North Korea claims to be a Peoples Democratic Republic, I guess we just have to believe them since they said it. There's no way we could qualitatively look at the country to analyze if they are in fact a Peoples Democratic Republic or a dictatorship. None whatsoever, I guess.

    Beyond that, it's possible, but it's always possible that the courts might do something like that. Again, welcome to reality. That's why it's important that people get engaged and fight for causes they believe in. That's why it's important that legislatures (especially the Federal Legislature) be pressured to ensure legal protections that are not subject to the changing makeup of the SCOTUS.

    Ok...and? This is another thing you keep saying that like...doesn't mean anything in this context/discussion. That's the kind of axiomatic nonsense that gets passed off as something more than functionally saying, "Water is wet."

    Opioids are heavily regulated.

    The GOP wants to regulate the shit out of marijuana, which is a shame.

    How's the water in Flint, Michigan working out?

    Your desire to ask me shows that your issue isn't with the argument, but with me. That's fine.

    Progressives pretend to care about all sorts of things, but we know that's also a lie. Just look at all the rich people they ant to eat.

    I am fighting for what I believe in, which is liberty.

    Anyone want to start a corporate punk band? I once saw a band, I think it was called Librarians... they read classic literature to thrash metal. Maybe we can read SOP and thrash?

    What does this even fucking mean? Is this a dig at the BLM chick or something? What does this have to do with literally anything I posted?

    I'm sure you believe that, but you've managed to convince precisely 0 people in this thread of it.

    You do you fam, I guess I don't have much left to write if you're never gonna actually respond to the content of my posts.

    Take it up with the people making the argument in the first place, mein duden.

    You seem to forget, I don't really care if I convince you. I fully expect liberals and conservatives to go on pushing as many regulations as they can when they are in power. I have been saying this for years, almost nobody actually gives a shit about liberty, they just want to be in charge. The cycle will keep on going, until you and the conservatives fuck it up beyond all repair.

    I'll be here, watching the world burn.
