“There is an app that will tell you where you can find free condoms. The pill can be bought from Target for a whole $10/mo.
What are we animals now? Taxpayers should have to pay for you to have unlimited pregnancy-free, casual sex whenever you want and if we don't, your failure to take responsibility for yourself is somehow our fault? It sounds like your problem is that you just don't want to grow up and be an adult.”
“That is incorrect. 24 weeks is considered the cutoff point. It's called the age of viability by most hospitals in America. The survival rate for babies born at 24 weeks is about 30%, and they generally have terrible medical problems and severely shortened lifespans. A baby born at 20 weeks will not survive.”

“And that's precisely the reason they're so paranoid about Sharia Law...PROJECTION...they want to force their religious views on others, and when you have such a mentality, it's hard to think that other religious beliefs don't also have their own fundamentalists. So best to shut down their religion before it gets a chance to do what you and your religious fundamentalists are doing.”

“That's why I call them the xtian ameri-kkk-an Taliban.”
“Even a basic understanding of the female reproductive system would be progress. Heck, she can even learn what a rape kit does and does not do by occasionally catching an episode of Law and Order: SVU.
I am always amazed by those who legislate with zero understanding of what they are legislating and who they are hurting in the process.”
“It says in the first paragraph. The piece was penned by three people - each is a professor at one of Iowa's three major universities - the University of Iowa, Iowa State University, and the University of Northern Iowa.”
