Age of Consent?

I noticed that the issue of parental notification/consent and opinions on statutory rape has come up a few times. I thought it might be interesting to get people's opinions on the concept of a legal age of consent. Do you think it's a good thing, or should the gov't not be legislating in this matter? Thoughts?

"I eat meat - but I do not kill animals for pleasure. I take what is needed to sustain my life and only to sustain my life - not out of some twisted pleasure. I don't think most people are killing animals for pleasure - albeit some do."


~And? Most women do not have abortions "out of some twisted pleasure" either.~


Agreed.

~Oh, brother. Not the "you treat the unborn like slaves" argument again.~


I don't buy that line of argument either, esp. given that hundreds of thousands of IVF embryos get frozen (and usually die upon thawing and soon after) or tossed and that's not a problem for some who are prolife.

Can you please explain how you deducted that TOC has no morals just because she doesn't feel there should be consent laws? I'm the mother of a daughter and I happen to agree with toc, so I'm also curious to see how you've deducted that I have no morals since you don't know a lick about me.

If I had even one computer literate brain cell I would make my own.

Actually one that said "I have morals, just not yours" would be better
