The Truth About America's Abortion Problem

The Truth About America's Abortion Problem


By: JBB  •  216 comments  •  a minute ago
Making abortions illegal does not reduce the steady demand for terminations by even one case. The real abortion rate in Mexico and Czechoslovak, where elective abortions are mostly illegal, is at least twice that of the United States which plainly illustrates the only pertinent point. Making abortions illegal does not stop women from aborting. What it does is to make criminals of the...
Sep 21 7:40am Kathleen @5.1.77 That’s high, hope you keep a good eye on it. I take BP medicine too. I am on a new type, so I take my BP everyday and I keep a chart. It runs in my family. 
Sep 21 7:30am sandy-2021492 @5.1.76 "..." Ah, if only.  But thanks. Yeah, it was 118/68 the day I went to the doctor.  She told me to take my blood pressure a few weeks in, and to watch for signs of blood clots, due to my age....

Sep 21 1:30am Bob Nelson @11.2.2 Do you really want to go into the swamp of economic injustice that leads to ignorance...  That argument is dubious, and opens a huge can of worms. 
Sep 21 1:26am Bob Nelson @5.1.75 "..." You're probably right. Your conclusion seems indisputable. OTOH, that doesn't change our obligations as a society. We know that an unwanted pregnancy will probably lead to serious...

Sep 21 12:23am sandy-2021492 @5.1.73 I've always been pretty careful, and have never had an unwanted pregnancy, but I've also always had access to contraception.  Starting in my mid-30s, though, I could no longer take the Pill (caused...
Sep 21 12:01am Kathleen @5.1.72 I disagree with your assessment about where my comments were going.  I more less brought up another important matter that you did not like. I am giving this a rest. Bedtime.

China's Persecution of Uighur Muslims: How COVID Has Inflamed the Crisis

Is it repression or is it being 'woke'?  The Chinese government seems to be following the playbook used by American liberals.  Or have American liberals only been influenced to adopt Chinese methods? American liberals have also used the COVID pandemic to impose repressive measures on the American heartland.  American liberals are censoring free speech, curtailing religious practices,...

Sep 21 3:37am Tacos! @6.1.3 "..." "..." That is irrelevant to what is being discussed. You either respect the terms of the Constitution on this matter or you don't. And if you don't, you have no credibility.

Joe Biden To Announce He Will Nominate Michelle Obama To The Supreme Court This is neither satire or fantasy, but rather speculation.  Michele Obama is by some accounts the most popular public figure in America.  She is a lawyer, and has a legal mind, even though that is not a requirement for nomination to the Court.  By Biden announcing he will nominate her in 2021 he...
