1. Do you have any data to back up your assertions? 2. Why do people claim to know the eventual outcome of the life of the "fetus" based solely on the present condition of the pregnant woman? 3. Why do people claim that it is better for the "fetus" to be killed than to have the same opportunity for life as the people who want to kill it? 4. Why do so many people claim to know what's "best" for someone else?

Liberal academics have been using speech codes for years. They hear an idea they don't like and it makes them angry. But they don't quite know how to defeat the idea on its own merits. So instead of either a) taking the time to cool down and offer a rational response, or b) actually changing their view, they simply give in to the impulse to censor. That is why our campus speech codes really don't reduce so-called hate speech. They simply embolden those who hate speech.

I wish I could say that this childish inclination toward censorship is unique to liberal...
