Why isn't the fact that PP is the biggest reason that unwanted pregnancies and abortions are at an all time low since 1973, ever brought up? That's the reason PP is a good thing. Forget Sanger and all the other arguments anti-PP. It has helped poor women access to affordable health care, family planning and higher birth-rates of healthy babies and less abortions. End of discussion. You can't used doctored videos as proof.
I believe it is now 7 states that have investigated PP. And Rick Scott, Fla. gov., deemed it necessary to delete the findings since they proved nothing illegal was done. The question comes down to two things at least.
1. How many unwanted pregnancies, dangerous abortions, ruined lives, devastated families and even possible future welfare kids would come of defunding PP, our best tool for healthy womens lives.
2. How does a government shutdown that cripples the whole country's economic system at a time when the GOP is crying, wrongfully by the way, that we are still doing horribly, help either the women or the country?
Every one of the GOP candidates who are for defunding for moral reasons is ready to start a war Day One. Hypocrisy knows no limits.
It has Russell. But the problem is the time frame. What used to take hundreds of thousands of years is now taking a decade or so. The glaciers, which I have seen some personally, are disappearing in a matter of years, not eons. Scientists have been able to read the atmospheric changes from ice cores, tree rings, etc. and no time in the past have changes happened so fast as now. Of course they have always changed. The argument always makes climate changers into people who don't understand time frames, whereas it seems that "deniers" don't understand time frames. When a 300,000 year change occurs in 15-20, you gotta problem.
It's too bad that "deniers" can't be separated on a bit of land somewhere and their "way of life", disbelief of "human involvement" in the "degradation" of their air, water and soil, would be theirs' and theirs' only. And those "environmental religious wackos" could try to clean things to the point of a "better earth" where allergies, cancers and all the "negatives" of a poisoned world would be a "thing of the past".
Can I get an "Hallelujah"?
Dan K, who in their right mind would want a SC that is not in line w/their thinking? And may the good Lord help us all.
Dan S. Thank you for the support. You've done well vs. the madding crowd. I suggest stepping back and letting them continue ad nauseum.
Good luck, Sen. Bennet. I wish you well. Maybe we should have the congresspeople who shut the government down, pay back the parks. It would not happen again.
You're right, Scott. I had a senior moment. A bit frustrated with 14 and the county. I've been driving it for 15 years and have seen very little improvement on such a busy road.
CR14 is the second busiest county road after 129. It's a beautiful drive from Moose's all the way to 131 south of Oak Creek. It takes courage sometimes to drive in bad weather. It was a cosmetic fix and mostly what happened is they just raised the road several inches and made it easier to drive faster. I see a lot of people that take 14 to south 131 rather than go thru the canyon. I think 14 is a bigger priority before any more work on 131. Stagecoach continues to grow and it's necessary to fix the road problem before tragedy happens.
I am not a Biblical scholar but.....one is walking into a maze of arguments when one quotes the Bible to defend their view. Pretty much every side of almost every argument can be found. If you know the history of how and when and by whom the Bible was put together, you probably would decide another source might be a better choice. I would suggest reading "Misinterpreting Jesus" by Bart Ehrman, a foremost Bible scholar and theologian, who admits his faith was shaken after delving into the history of the Bible.
