Healthier attitudes towards sex and contraception, including limiting the role
of religion in the conversation, would go a long way towards preventing unwanted
Setting aside the question of whether a newly-fertilized egg is a human being --
a question of philosophy and religion, not science -- if the State of Texas
wants to minimize abortion, they would do well to increase sex education so as
to reduce the number of pregnancies getting started due to ignorance, and make
contraception inexpensive and readily available to anyone having sex. While the
people attending these "pro life" rallies may indeed be delighted that
they gave birth rather than ending the pregnancy, those events aren't
attended by people who found unintended pregnancies to be a path to permanent
poverty and hardship.
As long as prevention in the first place plays a huge role in this.... I am all
for it. We need to focus less on the treatment for the problem, and worry more
about preventing the problem in the first place.
This is not even a winning proposal in heavily right leaning Texas.
Poll after poll shows that 40 years after Roe vs. Wade, a clear majority of
Americans support abortion.And Rick Perry, is against it.This is how the GOP faded into absurdity.
Texas is, Texas does. What do we expect. They will teach that the Earth is 6000
years old in school and that abstinence works every time. Too bad
abstinence doesn't work every time it's relied on, just every time
it's accomplished, which is rare now days.
Hutterite,Limit religion in the conversation. Further proof you libs have
little regard for the constitution.Pagan, Actually polls are
back and forth on support or opposition to abortion. Most people oppose
unlimited abortions. You should lay off the msnbc koolaid
Wow! Texas not for:* abortions* gay marriage* state
income taxes* gun controlWhy are Californians, and New Yorkers
getting away from their elected officials, and moving to Texas?Please don't bring your political views here.
Thanks worf, for showing why people in utah are 'great'....Who claims that every one in NY and California is moving to Texas...?Just you. Once again, without any evidence or supporting statements.Why is Texas afraid of people from New York and California? Maybe
you can learn something...
Pagan:I'm in Texas, and yes, it's common knowledge of
Californians moving here, as well as Arizona, Utah, Idaho, and Colorado. People
from New York buy property here, and Florida, because we have less taxes, and a
lower cost of living.These two states have failed elected
leadership, and many can't afford living there, so they are moving out.
These two states have the highest taxes, and the most people on welfare. We can learn something? Forget it. I don't hear Governor Perry
telling successful people to pay more taxes.Texas has a better
economy then the rest of the country put together. There's a reason for
How could we have been so stupid as to allow someone OTHER than the brilliant
Rick Perry to be elected president? Now remind me - WHICH executive departments
am I in favor of eliminating???
If Texas were to secede,--it would become the strongest country in the world,
and the USA would be crushed without its tax revenue.Say what you
want about Rick Perry, but he's miles ahead of Obama.
Perry is miles ahead of Obama?Who is Governor of Texas?And who is sitting at over 50% approval, in his 2nd term as President?
