“Considering that along with blocking abortions Republicans work to block access to birth control and sex education that teaches kids/people how to use it? No.”

“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.”

“Iowa is a blue state with some deep red pockets, unfortunately. Most Iowans find King utterly reprehensible, but hard to get rid of. His district is very rural and very uneducated.”

“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.”

katterfly on Jul 3, 2013 at 17:30:10

“I actually agree with you. I believe it would be better to change it to 24-weeks. One of my high school teachers had a son at 20-weeks. He had major medical issues and was blind and died at a young age.”

“They don't even care about abortion. If they did, they would support comprehensive sex education in schools and affordable birth control for all to prevent unwanted pregnancies in the first place. What they care about is punishing women for having sex. Because if a woman has sex and doesn't get pregnant? She gets away with it.”

“These folks invoking "God's Law" - aren't they the same people worried about Sharia Law? The idea that an oppressive religious law shouldn't trump secular law? Hmmm? For as much as they claim to hate the religious fundamentalists overseas, they sure do act like them.”

MoeB on Jun 28, 2013 at 10:51:23

“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.”

“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.”

“Oops.

Whenever I read about complaints like these, I automatically assume it's Middle America, as they seem to be always offended by something or another.

I am somewhat surprised that the Brits would have issues with this ad. I would expect them to find the humor clever, not frightening.”

lwaterbury.....that is a lovely sentiment ! Just perfect....

There is really cool Cherokee expression....

so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice."”

“I agree about that last paragraph. It is so absent of bitterness, showing sorrow and grief, yes; but also amazing hope for the future. Wonderful advice we could all follow on a daily basis.

As you said, "beautiful thoughts from a family in their darkest hour".

Thanks for a good comment.”
