The second step would be costly but the first step is not feasible by now. To steer away of the shit storm they brought upon themselves Facebook would have to admit the initiative is flawed and drop it. It would get bonus points if it went for number 2 but money says it won't happen.

This mindset misses the salient point of free choice that there is always a consequence for your choices.
So what? I may choose to use marijuana like there is no tomorrow (where it is legal for instance). Sure I may become some sort of addicted zombie or have health issues in the long run but it is MY choice. I can make it even knowing the consequences. I can choose to go banzai parachuting even knowing that I may miss the parachute and die as a consequence. Same as many other things that one can choose to do that are totally legal and present serious consequences. This alone makes every other point you present null and void. What we must do is to warn the women that choose to go the abortion route of the many consequences and provide psychological support (in case of the Govt providing as it would be the case here) and wage awareness campaigns.
It is a serious disruption to an already undertaken biological process and from my reading of the various techniques used, quite stressful (I am being understated here) on the human female body.
So? This does not mean a woman cannot choose to undergo abortion knowing all these issues. If you choose to undergo a surgery to fix something that wouldn't otherwise cause any serious risk you are accepting the risk of a difficult recovery an possibly death. You can choose. That's the whole point.
Jesus Christ died for all of us, the good, the bad, the ugly and the indifferent.
An atheist couldn't care less. A Buddhist neither. I sympathize with this but I still refuse to impose it to others that chose not to believe.
In the end I believe we were arguing whether abortion should or should not be allowed by law and the clear answer is that it should be fully allowed and supported under any human law. I mean, not praying to Allah while turned to Mecca is bad for you so let us make this the law, shall we? Obviously not. So why are we meddling with the choices other people can make? Didn't God Himself bestow us with free will even if it ultimately led to a world of problems (bringing the discussion closer to your beliefs it seems)?
As you already noted before the new rules are only bad news for the companies that are already misbehaving and abusing their dominant position. So what's the only solution in the short term? If not to cease the bad behavior, then just decrease it while you survey the new waters you are sailing into. If the FCC keeps moving ahead in its newly pro-consumer stance then we'll see things get better and better over time with a few interventions where the major players will intentionally slip to test the new waters.
My standpoint is that human life, at all stages, is precious.
Your standpoint. I disagree vehemently. I see that it would be a cruelty to allow abortion after the fetus has developed a nervous system capable of experimenting pain in the abortion process. Anything before that is good to go.
You see, I don't like abortion for religious reasons (I'm catholic) but I also believe the Government should encompass everybody. Which means I do not have the right to make a law that robs women of their power to decide over their bodies. I do believe, however, that limitations must be imposed as I discussed above. "but, you are against abortion in your core values!" I hear you saying and I agree. I would do everything in my power to prevent a woman from performing such thing but ultimately it's her decision. The catholics could raise awareness to their cause and educate women on the many psychological and spiritual issues of performing abortions but that's as far as they can go. Instead of enacting laws prohibiting abortion we should be providing a social framework to support those women who do not want the children and make them feel comfortable to give the newborns for adoption instead of aborting. Along with safeguards (ie: compulsory sterilization if a woman keeps having kids and not wanting them and this too would need proper discussion as it's my opinion alone).
The phrase "sacrificed on the altar of women's rights" is a commentary on the feminist viewpoint that women have absolute control and choice over their reproductive capability.
Yes, they have. As a last resort if every other means of birth control fail they can abort.
They have taken unto themselves the "god prerogative"
You are placing upon them. Take God out of the context and it's just mundane birth control. Stop thinking with your religion or your morals and start thinking scientifically.
It is easy to get outraged and react violently, it is a lot harder to try and understand your enemy and then to reason with them.
You are doing precisely that. Y&ou are failing to understand what you see as the enemy (bad choice of words eh?).
You know, I've never seen any Voltage movies but in my view (that is shared by others) if they feel the need to extort money out of people then I don't need to watch any of them because they must be so shitty that they made little money so the company turned to trolling. I mean, you see anti-piracy efforts for huge hits like the Avengers but they don't rely on petty schemes like this. And it usually comes from the MAFIAAs of the world, not the studios themselves.
Now it seems said ex-employee is now in a sticky situation. I assume, as it is done here, that these things are published to the public since it regards Government activities. So unless Brazzers are hiring he is going to have a hard time to find a new job since he blew the last one so spectacularly.
Any puns that may arise from any statement here and in the following comments will probably be totally intended.
The last video is a good example of cops acting exactly within the law and their reach. However I do think the citizen could have been more polite. Politeness and respect works wonders to make social life better.
