It’s not useful to frame problems in the form of what can’t happen or what you can’t do. Figuring out what you actually need can be hard when you’ve wired yourself to see problems as impossible.

Anonymous asked: Fetuses are not people

in-the-right:

Now try to explain to me with facts why a living human being is not a person.

Fetuses are only person’s when it’s “convenient” for your arguments, but when pro-lifers are faced with a lawsuit, all of a sudden fetuses aren’t persons, I wonder why that is? /sarcasm. 

Fetuses are potential persons, but they are not people, they are not autonomous, they are not sentient, and they do not have personhood, which is granted at birth, which grants you rights as a person. Fetuses cannot be legally given rights as they are intrusive violations of bodily autonomy, and when you infringe on someone else’ rights, you get yours taken away.

A person is recognized by law as such, not because he is human, but because rights and duties are ascribed to him. The person is the legal subject or substance of which the rights and duties are attributes. An individual human being considered to be having such attributes is what lawyers call a “natural person.”” [x] - Paige

Latin American author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1982, died Thursday. He was 87. Garcia Marquez, the master of a style known as magic realism, was and remains Latin America’s best-known writer.
His novels were filled with miraculous and enchanting events and characters; love and madness; wars, politics, dreams and death. And everything he had written, Garcia Marquez once said, he knew or heard before he was 8 years old.
Chilean novelist Ariel Dorfman says Marquez’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech was one of the author’s most important messages to the world.
"Garcia Marquez is speaking about all the people who are marginal to history, who have not had a voice," Dorfman says. "He gives a voice to all those who died. He gives a voice to all those who are not born yet. He gives a voice to Latin America."

There needs to be a Tumblr of every great author wearing their greatest book as a hat.
