  1. Allowing for the sale of meat incentivizes the production of meat. A cow has a larger cerebral cortex than a fetus.
  2. Who is harmed by selling a fetus for money for use in stem cell research? Abortion is already legal.
  3. I don't support people doing these things. I just support people's freedom to do ridiculous things. Society is only truly free if the line between what you are allowed to do and what you are not allowed to do is deep into ridiculous territory.
  4. For health reasons, perhaps a restriction could be justified...
  5. Likewise, if its fine to buy and sell cow corpses, it should be fine to buy and sell fetuses. In addition, by allowing for the pricing mechanism of the glorious free market, this will allow for a more economically efficient allocation of finite resources (in this case fetuses) to scientific research.
  6. 'Pro-lifers' should stop eating meat, because otherwise they are hypocrites. A cow has a bigger cerebral cortex than a human fetus. If it's fine to eat a cow then it should be fine to abort a fetus.
  7. Absolutely. And sadly, our social-conservative PM Trudeau still denies the rights of gay people to buy and sell eggs, sperm, and surrogacy services. A right that gay people in the U.S. have.
  8. Here's a good video by freedom advocate John Stossel on designer babies.
  9. So which views scare you in particular? 1. The legalization of cocaine and other hard drugs? 2. The legalization of third trimester abortions? 3. The support of a mixed health care system, which includes private clinics? 4. Acknowledging that transmen can have abortions? 5. the legalization of the sale of a fetus for money? 6. The legalization of designer babies?
  10. Broad-based taxes (i.e. taxes on everything) are generally more economically efficient than a complex tax system of micro-taxes where the government picks and chooses winners and losers instead of allowing for competition, let alone a system of mass regulations and subsidies. As a comparison, current estimates of efficiencies of various subsidy programs for renewables or electric cars are typically in the range of a few hundred dollars per metric ton of CO2. In comparison, the marginal cost of reducing emissions for a tax is equal to the level of the tax (so in Canada's case $30 per metric ton). Taxes would also generate revenue instead of wasting revenue.
  11. Not only should it be legal to have an abortion in the 3rd trimester, but it should be legal for a transman to choose to abort a designer-baby fetus in a private clinic and then sell the fetus to buy crack cocaine! I am very very pro-freedom and pro-choice.
  12. Or you could implement a tax on carbon dioxide emissions, which is simple and the most economically efficient way to reduce emissions...
  13. Wrong. It's called radiative physics. We've known the physics for nearly 200 years, since Fourier first proposed the greenhouse gas effect. Antarctic ice cores do not show this. Antarctic ice cores only go back a few hundred thousand years, in a few cases over a million years. The last time CO2 levels were this high was 3 million years ago during the Pliocene. Proxies other than ice cores were used to reconstruct CO2 levels that far back in time.
  14. Waterloo has warmed at a rate of 3 degrees celcius per century in the last half century. http://berkeleyearth.lbl.gov/city-list/W Climate change is a factor, but it is not the only factor in the current warmer winter.
  15. What are you going on about? I support the Hong Kong protestors. Are you sure you don't have me confused with someone else?
