It is not my place, or yours, to tell people what decisions they should make. While I would not personally seek to abort an unplanned pregnancy I believe it is the right of the mother, ultimately, to make that decision. I am not in a place to tell someone what decisions they should make and what decisions are or were wrong. I don't consider myself a conservative or a liberal but a constitutionalist. This means I believe in the rights of others to live how they see fit so long as it does not impinge upon the rights of others.

I also believe in fate, destiny some would say: if a fetus is destined to be aborted then a soul is not granted to the shell of life. The same is true of miscarriages. Are you now saying that a mother who has a miscarriage is guilty of terminating a life? To me there is really no difference. Let the fates, gods or whatever higher existence you believe may or may not exist sort it out in the after.

And for all the biblicals: judge not lest ye be judged.

Fun and useful tool

I'm working on updating my exhaust on my bike and I'm going to have to build from scratch. While I was tooling around on the internet I came across Engineering Toolbox and they had a link to Google Sketchup.

It's a 3d modeling program that's a hell of a lot easier than any others I've ever used. It's simple, so don't expect it to do extreme stuff unless you go to the pro version. Cool news: it's from Google so there's a free version! I downloaded it and just started dicking around. It's easy to use for basic shapes. I'll have to see if I can do complex modeling on it (and I'm out of practice as it is) but it's fun and integrates with Google Earth. Be interesting to see how well it works and what others are doing with it.


U go there now
