I had a depressing thought, too

If you liberal nut jobs had your way, these fetuses would have been killed before, during, or after birth. that is what "choice" means, isn't it?

Just like Scrooge - "decrease the surplus population" though abortion.

Off your meds, eh?

Your reply is the most outstanding argument I have seen yet in favor of Obamacare. There is no need for paranoid schizophrenics to suffer needlessly in solitude when medical advances in mental illness make conditions like polly's treatable and make life worth living again.

Oh sure. Cause all liberals

Oh sure. Cause all liberals LOVE abortion and we want to see as many abortions as possible. Abortion, abortion, rah, rah, rah!

Good grief. Take your nonsense elsewhere.

From the Wikipedia entry on "Choice"

Choice consists of the mental process of judging the merits of multiple options and selecting one or more of them. While a choice can be made between imagined options ("what would I do if ...?"), often a choice is made between real options and followed by the corresponding action. For example, a route for a journey is chosen based on the preference of arriving at a given destination as soon as possible. The preferred (and therefore chosen) route is then derived from information about how long each of the possible routes take. This can be done by a route planner. If the preference is more complex, such as involving the scenery of the route, cognition and feeling are more intertwined, and the choice is less easy to delegate to a computer program or assistant.

More complex examples (often decisions that affect what a person thinks or their core beliefs) include choosing a lifestyle, religious affiliation, or political position.

Most people regard having choices as a good thing, though a severely limited or artificially restricted choice can lead to discomfort with choosing and possibly, an unsatisfactory outcome. In contrast, unlimited choice may lead to confusion, regret of the alternatives not taken, and indifference in an unstructured existence; and the illusion that choosing an object or a course leads necessarily to control of that object or course can cause psychological problems.

“You’ll see I wear only gray

“You’ll see I wear only gray or blue suits,” he said. “I’m trying to pare down decisions. I don’t want to make decisions about what I’m eating or wearing. Because I have too many other decisions to make.” He mentioned research that shows the simple act of making decisions degrades one’s ability to make further decisions. It’s why shopping is so exhausting. “You need to focus your decision-making energy. You need to routinize yourself. You can’t be going through the day distracted by trivia.”
