The Truth About America's Abortion Problem

The Truth About America's Abortion Problem


By: JBB  •  203 comments  •  16 minutes 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 20 8:48pm @5.1.65 I am pro choice so I never said abortion should not be available. I was just saying if we tried harder, we could reduce them.
Sep 20 8:42pm @5.1.63 True, you don’t know who is telling the truth. I think a lot of it is carelessness between them.  
Sep 20 8:40pm @5.1.61 From the Guttmacher Institute fact sheet. That was in 2017.  So then if it’s half ( which is a lot) then how would you explain the rest?  Also, some people double up. They both use protection....
Sep 20 8:03pm @11.2 Then again, you can’t tell people how many kids they can have either. 
Sep 20 7:40pm @5.1.58 Who knows... not everyone has common sense. Frankly, it’s very noticeable with some on here. So it’s hard to determine who would be responsible or not when it comes to sex. That’s too personal....
Sep 20 6:11pm @5.1.56 I don’t think you understand what I am saying. Yes, some do not take it seriously enough. Notice I am not being sarcastic, just straight forward.  
Sep 20 4:29pm @5.1.54 I never said that using birth control is irresponsible, however, I did say that having sex without birth control is. I don’t seem to see too much on here about behavior if they are not on any kind...
Sep 20 4:11pm @5.1.51 Using protection is wise, and thinking before you act is wise too.
Sep 20 4:10pm @5.1.50 Also downplaying being responsible for your behavior isn’t either. 
Sep 20 4:08pm @5.1.49 I still think you can find some sort of community center that may help you. There is always someone that can guide you. Around 89% can get it, so the other 11% must have someplace to go. 
Sep 20 4:04pm @5.1.47 Do you agree with my comment?
Sep 20 3:51pm @5.1.44 That I agree with. Also, modifying your behavior would help too. Unless it is by accident thinking you are okay with the method of birth control you are taking, to be more careful with your sexual...
Sep 20 3:42pm @5.1.42 What about Medicaid? 
Sep 20 3:41pm @5.1.41 There is not too much you can do about it then. If the doctor feels it is unethical then you have no choice. The only suggestion would be is to force them to do it. Is that the solution? Fire the...
Sep 20 3:24pm @5.1.37 I was under the impression that The Affordable Care Act helped with that. It’s does not?
Sep 20 3:18pm @5.1.36 I read that on the link, but it also said if they refuse to do the procedure, then they should provide the patient with information where they can be treated.  Would a doctor refuse and not give...
Sep 20 2:57pm @5.1.33 The question is, what percentage of abortions are for this reason. In order to cut down on having abortions, we need to find out what is the biggest reason that woman are becoming pregnant when...
Sep 20 2:51pm @5.1.32 I am going to look more into this, I have family members in the medical field that I can talk to. 
Sep 20 2:39pm @5.1.29 I would think only for health reasons.  Something does not sound right with that.
Sep 20 2:37pm @5.1.28 They can use other forms of contraception. Some woman do not like the idea. They may have health issues too.  That is a last resort other then hysterectomy, but they will not do that unless you...
Sep 20 2:27pm @5.1.25 "..." That is considerate, but is that legal?  It's his body, just like the woman's body. When he signs for the operation, I can't see his wife having to sign it, just him.
Sep 20 2:20pm @5.1.23 "..." Are there any hospitals that are not run by the Catholic church? Most women that can afford to have their tubes tied could travel a little further to one. Plus the GYN usually works out of...
Sep 20 1:58pm @5.1.19 Really? If I went to my GYN, he would do it with only my permission.  Like I said, it is a operation, so they have to consider your general health too. Do they ask for a wife's signature if they...
Sep 20 1:55pm @5.1.18 I am sure many GYN's would do it if you wanted it done.  It's really up to the patient, I don't know why they would refuse. Unless you have a health problem that would risk your life or other...
Sep 20 1:15pm @5.1.11 Okay. I do think that now, it would be more available. That happen to be a insulated incident.
Sep 20 12:51pm @10.2.3 "..." Not all republicans are against abortion. There are a lot of moderate republicans like myself that are pro choice and more less conservative on other issues and not the social issues.
Sep 20 12:48pm @10.1.1 "..." I was referring to the whole country. I do understand that if it is left up to the states, that would make it much harder to get an abortion. 
Sep 20 12:37pm @10 Abortion is a HUGE issue and I think it would be catastrophic if they attempted to abolish it. Most politicians realize that. 
Sep 20 12:31pm @5.1.6 "..." It's time for her to find another doctor, what a stupid thing to say to a patient.
Sep 20 12:19pm @2.1.11 Lets face it,when two people get in the mood, sometimes they do not think of the consequences of what can happen. There are some occasions when birth control did not work, but most of the time it...

It's now looking like the lockdowns may have been a huge mistake


Via: Nerm_L  •  47 comments  •  one week ago
First of all it's necessary to understand that the country never locked down.  Essential workers didn't have the option of hiding in their basements.  The lights had to stay on, the internet kept running, trash collected, packages delivered, and store shelves stocked.  Those producing necessities still had to go to work.  The lockdowns only applied to a select few whose importance seems to be...

More good news coming from Sweden.
Sep 09 6:26pm @6.1.5 It is more then just property. It’s in many cases their life’s work. Oh... that’s okay, it’s not mine so I don’t have to worry about it. Nonsense, the riots have nothing to do with those people....
Sep 09 6:23pm @6.1.4 Exactly, very well said. Criminals take up for criminals.
Sep 09 4:42pm @6.1 I think your ideology is backwards. There is no justification of destroying property of innocent citizens. 
Sep 09 1:56pm @5.1.4 Actually the police are too busy trying to protect us from all the criminals that think they can resist arrest whenever they feel like it. What fears? Most people like feeling safe. I worry more...
Sep 09 12:17pm @5.1.1 That’s why we need law and order. Supporting our police department will help stop individuals that practice less responsibility for their actions. 
Sep 09 12:15pm @4.1.1 I still like freedom of choice, I still would not leave my country. Although, if you feel that strongly against the country, you can always live someplace else.
Sep 09 11:08am @4 Behavior is a huge part of it.  If everyone followed the guidelines it would make a big difference. Although, I still feel some things are not ready to open yet.

Sep 08 5:29pm @5.1.15 No Perrie, it’s different. If you like him go ahead and vote for him, I think he should not be running. He is not up to this. He is just like my father-in-law in the beginning of dementia. 
Sep 08 3:32pm @5.1.1 I watched it and it sounded like more of a fumble of words. He knew it and tried to cover it.  Biden can’t cover it, I see his frustration too. My father-in-law would be the exact same way. Biden...

Comfort food-we've all had it. We all want it. And if you do not, I pity you. Comfort food is food that brings emotional joy and gratification, even if only for a short time. Maybe it's something that invokes a happy childhood memory. Perhaps it uplifts our spirits. For example, what's better for dealing with a relationship breakup than a tub of chocolate ice cream (other than possibly...

There's a lot of scents that I love; all for different reasons. The smell of tar on a spring morning reminds me of the home I lived in until the age of 8.
