Coming Out Pregnant!

Coming Out Pregnant!

Commented Nov 23, 2011 at 11:35:38 in Black Voices

“I've always admire your work and your words Ms. Chin. Congrats to you and the child you're carrying, they will be so lucky. I'm a black lesbian who intends to remain single until my dying days and I won't ever have children. How lucky we are to live in a country where we can make choices such as this: to have a child, to not have a child, to have 2 kids versus 4, to have a partner, to not have a partner, etc.
Best of luck to you and I am sorry to hear you have had to be on bed rest.”

“Yeah, it's not really a shock to me.
It's a very poor state and they more than likely teach abstinence in the classrooms.
This is a disgrace.
People there need to demand more.”

Commented Feb 21, 2011 at 14:37:08 in Politics

“This isn't about the government funding abortion, this is about women's access to reproductive health services.”

MissAngela on Feb 21, 2011 at 14:56:03

“Thank you! Planned parenthood provides so many services, including those that reduce the likelihood of unplanned pregnancy for women AND men.”

"Abortion" Fuels Intolerant Thinking

Commented Feb 21, 2011 at 14:36:14 in Politics

“No one is FOR abortion.
They will always happen and I'd much rather they be legal and safe.

I'd be in favor of a single-payer health care system that also included coverage for abortion.”

"Abortion" Fuels Intolerant Thinking

Commented Feb 21, 2011 at 14:34:37 in Politics

“Have you ever been inside a Planned Parenthood?
There are plenty of women who go there for PRE-NATAL services.
They counsel women on ALL their choices including adoption and keeping the baby.

The only trauma women experience post-abortion is having people call them horrible names simply because they had a legal medical procedure called abortion.”

“It's hard to take him seriously when he won special exemptions for his predatory pre-paid debit/credit cards.
I'm all for businesses hiring more people rather than hoarding the money because they're greedy/want to give the CEO a bonus.”

“Why not do something that will actually get these people employed?
Why not give tax credits for companies and individuals who purchase solar panels and wind turbines made in the USA by workers receiving a living wage?
Why not get the ball rolling faster on these high speed rail projects.
Let's end the tax breaks for companies who are shipping jobs overseas.

People want to work!”

PROstrength on Feb 8, 2011 at 02:10:04

“Thats fine, but do you know how long it takes to get a business like that up and running before you actually start to even make one part ?

Thats the thing, an extension isnt a permanent thing. The 99ers are seeking assistance until all of these JOBS magically appear, especially the ones the RepubliCANTS have been promising. But first they need to strip all the womens rights away from them, reclassify rape and battery, and whatever other ways they can find to dehumanize women.”

UnderempAmerica on Feb 8, 2011 at 01:19:26

“The um was rude, I apologize.”

UnderempAmerica on Feb 8, 2011 at 01:14:50

“Um, production for solar panels and wind turbines are now moving to China.

Who is building this high-speed rail? Do you know who the unemployed are? Who the heck can afford to ride it once it's built?

End tax breaks for companies overseas? I can hear Congress laughing now.”

“I never donate enough for a tax write off and that's quite alright with me. When I donate, I'm not doing it with ulterior motives.”

tnlcallen on Dec 14, 2010 at 02:16:08

“I hope you realize how ridiculous your post is. If someone is in a 35% tax bracket, and they donate $100 to a charity, they get a $35 break. If they hadn't donated at all, they would have paid the $35 and had $65 instead of the $35. My point is that those who give to charity are still sacrificing. The tax break just makes it more attractive for someone to give more than they would othewise.”

“If we can get unemployment down to about 4-5%, everything will be gravy.
I would love to live on my own but I have a part-time job and I'm in school full time. I realize one can work full-time and go to school full-time but it's no picnic.
I'm 20 so I'm not in a HUGE rush to move out.”

“When I had AT&T, I didn't have any serious problems. For a few months they were overcharging me and they never really did refund me the full amount but oh well.
I'm now with Verizon and sure I think it's more expensive than it's worth, SO FAR I'm happy. Get back with me in a few months and that might change.
I switched from AT&T to Verizon because Verizon has unlimited data and I really liked the Droid X.”

“Nah. Repubs only protect fetuses, and then when the kids are born, they're on their own. And non-American children don't count as lives when they are waging a war.”
