Jerome, In the 50's we didn't reward bad behavior and poor decision making like we do today so there were fewer people that think like you and more of us that think like Margaret. Oh for the good old days!

The Catholic Church, or any other church or orginazation, may have their own rules, etc. If yo do not agree that's OK. do not be part of that group. However, you can't blame certain situations on their stance. and Marcia we are glad you are alive and well even if we disagree.

Gotta agree with Paul here, regardless of one's views.

Here in VA, the Repub-controlled house/ assembly passed legislation requiring abortion clinics to meet all hospital statutes, from number of parking spaces to width of corridors.

Most are closing because of the additional cost - which was the idea behind the legislation in the first place. The state health commissioner resigned in protest.

A Recent article noted there are more complications from colonoscopies that abortions, but doctor offices aren't being held to this stricter standard.

in this case, the same people asking for less government don't object in a case where there is more government...

Kids aren't so different, but how we handle them certainly is. As for birth control and abortions, access to birth control has never been easier, in fact many forms of birth control weren't even available until more recent times, yet abortions are up, as are teen pregnancies. Sex education in schools is 10 times what it used to be. I don't have any idea what that means, other than something isn't working. The Religious Right, on the other hand, is the exact reason why our founders called for a strict separation of church and state, we don't need The American Taliban running the show.

That you Jerome for admitting what so many of us fail to. We always act like kids are so different, it must be short memories. And I agree that the religious right is doing more to jeopardize these kids by denying them sex education and access to birth control. That creates more abortions, not less.
