AT&T has access to certain cable channels, Comcast has access to other certain cable channele, while Verizon has a different access.
Now since they have a "non-competing clause" they don't involve in each other's markets, now with certain channels available to certain providers, that now limits as to what content each provider provides. IE. Comcast broadcasts NBC, AT&T broadcasts Time Warner or CBS, while Verizon broadcasts ABC (As a pure example.)
NOW the Telco's *COULD* and probably will, cite freedom of expression, but.... this will ultimately also lead to a limitation of sharing and dissemination of information, while also curtailing the freedom of expression to choose what news to consume by the consumer.
**CAVEAT** This is a purely hypothetical situation at this point, but it is also the path that I see the telcos going down.
Let's ban encryption, yes a literal fuck-ton of bad shit will happen. Chaos will reign, and the FBI/CIA will be totally useless, as they will be overwhelmed with calls of computer/identity fraud/theft.
On the other hand we will no longer have to take govt officials to court over emails that they don't want made public, because they will by nature, be public anyway because there will be NO encryption.
here's the problem, and it highlight Trump's presidency, and Sanders' run. Establishment politics. Legislators in Washington have tribal mentality, on BOTH sides.
But really, this highlights what, at least myself, has been saying for a while now. It's about trust, we don't trust our government. And now the NSA/FBI surveillance defenders are learning that lesson the hard way.
1) at what point does a fetus become a human. I would say at birth. However, what is currently on the books (at least in the US) generally is 2nd or 3rd trimester (unless either the mother or the fetus is in imminent danger).
2) At what point is taking a human life unacceptable, this is a lot more complicated as it is dictated by circumstances present at the time, there are laws and court rulings and military reviews detailing as to the legality of taking a human life. But to humor you, I will go with my previous statement as to the 20-24 week. That seems to be the best balance between the two viewpoints.
biologically speaking, a fetus is nothing more than a tumor, or a parasite.
I am partial to Mike here, Educate the person/persons on the procedure, the risks, etc. IF she still wants to go through with it, then it is up to the govt to provide a safe (as can be) and clean environment to do so.
