    The RCC pro-life position is no less or no more rigorous than the ethical vegan argument for not eating meat.

    Science "confines itself to" (or at least it should) empirical verification of plausible hypotheses. You're confusing normative value judgement with science.

    As it stands the state is more likely to force businesses to let trangendered (or those who claim to be so) men use female changing and/or toilet facilities. So state meddling is almost certainly to be in the opposite direction to what you're proposing. I oppose both.

    While I think reasonable accommodations should be made (at the discretion of the business owner), it should be remembered that such individuals are a minuscule percentage of the population. This is a non issue.
    Business owners need the state to set their toilet policies no more than they need civil servants to wipe their backsides.

    It did look a bit heavy handed when I checked it out. The amount of convoluted manipulation going on is just unreal.

    The Catholic prolife argument is to save as many lives as one can including the pregnancy situation. It's both rigorous and logical. Nuthin' to do with veganism.

    I'm outlining the limitations of science and my previous remarks are on point.

    The state should not be endorsing the "transgender" lunacy full stop.

    It's of a dogmatic, first principle nature and impractical, just like the extreme animal rights nutcases.

    I think you're confusing normative value judgements with empiricism.

    The state shouldn't be involved, fullstop. This is a non-issue.

    LOl. they deleted all the comments and blocked further comments on this video - there were about 50 comments - all very critical of this woman and her arrogance. It seems TEDX are all for free speech - as long as it's their own lying propaganda that being spoken.
