After resisting since the beginning, I finally, reluctantly, joined Twitter. It was originally intended as a faster and more direct way to contact politicians, to let them know that we at FLAW opposed or supported their positions on bills. But it turned out to be a great way to interact with others, as well. Today I had fun with a Canadian Pro-Personhood guy, possibly a priest, below the fold.
I saw this on a friend's Twitter feed, and had to jump in:
From the Old Guy (I doubt he'd give me permission to use his Twitter handle):
@Fortitude_1 (FLAW member) If unwilling to get pregnant then don't have sex. Pregnancies come from sex. I thought everyone today knew that.
Me to @Old Guy But sex is the most fun we can have with our clothes off. God built our bodies for sex. Procreation is a side effect.
Old Guy: Great, have sex if you want to just be responsible for likely consequences. No right to kill another. #cdnpoli #m312
Me: Oh, I am. But isn't it better for little souls to go to Heaven than be abused on Earth by parents who didn't want them?
Old Guy: So you endorse infanticide? Eugenics? #cdnpoli #m312 #abortion
Me:No. That's my POINT. All children should be WANTED and LOVED. Like MINE. It shld be solely the parents' decision. Not yours
Old Guy: So as soon as a parent doesn't want their child anymore they are free to murder him/her?
Me: Hee, hee, you're funny. No. They shouldn't be forced-by law-to have them in the first place. Duh.
Old Guy: By your logic if parents want a child, bring her into the world, but then change their minds it's ok to kill her. #cdnpoli
Me: No--are you crazy? Twisted? Matricide or patricide of a living-i.e., BREATHING-child is illegal. Zygotes are not breathing.
@Fortitude_1 to me:
* so Old Guy agreed to have Personhood Funerals for embryo people shed in menses, and now won't talk to me. Thinks IUD Abort. #M312
Me to @Fortitude_1 He's busy trying to argue with me :-) Not succeeding. I have a Jesuit education.
