Came across an interesting an argument relating to the abortion discussion.

To paraphrase - it goes like this (and this may relate to US law rather than here):
- You have complete autonomy over how your organs are used while you're alive and after your'e dead.
- If you die, and you have a perfectly good heart/liver/cornea/kidney - it CANNOT be used to save another life if you did not consent to it prior to dying.
- If you are alive, and have a perfectly functioning kidney - you are under no obligation to give it to someone, even if it would save their life.

Ultimately - your life, your organs, are yours to use as you see fit. Even if you can save a life, even if you can save the life of your own child there is no law saying you have to do so.

But with an unborn fetus/child/baby (whatever framing you use) people want to change that. People want to say "no - you must use your organs to fuel this unborn - you must. You shouldn't have a choice - your choice ended".

People make it sound like an abortion is like going down to the Telstra shop and cancelling your phone plan. (Which isn't as easy as it sounds). But an abortion, if you've ever been there with someone going through it, is a damn difficult decision to make. Nobody does it for FUN. Nobody does it lightly. It's an incredibly difficult choice to make, so to force women into only having one option in that situation, in my view, is f’ed. It's so limiting, it's such a violation of freedom.

Free pro tip - if you're going to use an alt account to get around board bans, it's best you don't kick sand in the face of the mods who are giving you a break by posting quite terrible personal insults, very dubious accusations and label everyone who disagrees as an idiot. It probably won't get you far.

What 'gem'? I'm no fan of hers but that's just straight up abuse.
You come out and constantly blame "men" for everything gone wrong in the world. Do you not think there's going to be a few out there that will use social media to take a shot at her when that is the only forum/pulpit they have?

Some will, but it's not clever or in any way beneficial to whatever cause they might have. Play the ball. Or better yet, ignore her.

It was a PM so she clearly had some sort of relationship with him.

It should have stayed private rather then reposting.

Lack of sympathy here

Getting a PM over a social media platform like instagram doesn't automatically indicate a clear relationship. What's the relevance of that anyway, either way it's not a great look abusing someone online if you have a close relationship or not
I don't think she's in the business of chatting with random men

I take it your not familiar with her vitriol.
Because if you were you'd understand that's the game she plays.
You get what you give

I don't and I wouldn't personally behave like that.
