In my view premarital sex should be illegal. Parents should have to prove their ability to earn a living and provide for a child before they're allowed to make babies.

ajax, should the government compel you to surrender your body to another individual, to use it as they please against your will?
Do you think any abortions should be illegal under any circumstances?
Abortions have never been legal under any circumstance. The fact that you would even bother with this strawman demonstrates your abject ignorance on abortion.

What’s your opinion on my question? Do you believe that the government should compel you to surrender your body to another individual, to use it as they please against your will?
Isn't that what the draft is for men?

I'm not convinced that the sin is about preserving life. I believe premarital sex is an abuse of our procreative powers that God has given us. This is why it's a sin only second in severity to murder. In my view premarital sex should be illegal. Parents should have to prove their ability to earn a living and provide for a child before they're allowed to make babies.

That seems very problematic from the standpoint of government control over your person. That’s even stricter than China’s failed One Child policy. As well, it doesn’t address some circumstances that I just mentioned in the previous post (death of a parent, job loss during pregnancy, etc.).

It also doesn’t answer the question that I asked. Do you believe that the government should compel you to surrender your body to another individual, to use it as they please against your will?

Republicans fought tooth and nail to prevent the expansion of birth control, the only measure known to effectively reduce abortion rates. Abortion dropped dramatically after Obamacare expanded access.
But ... people who are not married having sex is against God's will. The state should not pay to enable those who commit sins to avoid the natural consequences of their wicked lustfulness.

Notice how the existence of highly effective forms of contraception is ignored here. That kind of thing has to be forbidden, since it rather spoils one of the big reasons for not allowing people to have sex for the expression of affection, or just for having fun.

So when Mom or Dad become disabled and lose their primary source of income (whatever that may be) who do they return the child to since they can't make good on their agreement as per you?

Something like an Amazon distribution center only for children whose parents couldn't continue to provide financially?

just like election fraud laws, abortion laws or morality laws in general are going to hurt right-wingers more than the left. All those good country folk out there have the highest teen pregnancy rates.

Tell that to Canpakes. The reason contraception doesn't work is because the female sex drive is to have babies not just hump. Most of these pregnancies have nothing to do with the availability of contraception. Contraception has been available for quite some time. It hasn't lowered teenage pregnancy rates nor stopped lazy and irresponsible people from reproducing themselves and leaving society to foot the bill for raising the child.
And when the Confederates saw Jackson standing fearless like a stonewall, the army of Northern Virginia took courage and drove the federal army off their land.

I know it is. But young boys need to grow up knowing that their fantasy of women who just want to have sex with no strings attached is just that, a fantasy. Nothing is free.

In ‘ethic cleansing, Adolf Hitler’ ‘s worldview forcing kids to have babies will reduce teen pregnancy, and alleviate society’s cost to raise them.

Good ****ing Lord GQP’ers are ****ing morons.
