Quote from: Sir Perceval of Daventry on May 08, 2011, 10:24:31 AMIn some matters, things are very black and white. Right now we're in a battle for this nation's future. The Republicans want to take this country back 100 years and undo every social program and institution put in place, even simple regulatory bodies like the EPA and FDA. Personally, I prefer the world of 2011 to that of 1901.
Quote from: Blackthorne on May 10, 2011, 06:23:03 PMYes, and if there's anything I hate, it's the sentiment "If you're not with us, you're against us." That kind of rhetoric is thrown around by both sides, (Left and Right) and it's utter crap.I mean, earlier in the thread Percival accused Baggins of being a "conservative" when he clearly stated he was a moderate - or at least quite middle of the road. But that wasn't enough for him, and he started a "witch hunt" to discover who his "political heros" were. That's utter crap - and both sides do it, and accuse the other of doing it. Crap crap crap.
QuoteWith a total budget of some $1.1 billion, more than a third of which comes from the federal, state and local governments, Planned Parenthood offers family planning, H.I.V. counseling, treatment for sexually transmitted diseases, cancer screening and other services as well as abortions, mainly to low-income women. Congress has long barred the use of federal money for abortion, but it provides more than $75 million a year to Planned Parenthood affiliates to support family planning for low-income women. Millions more in federal dollars are provided for sex education and, indirectly, through Medicaid and other programs.

Quote from: KatieHal on May 11, 2011, 09:20:26 AMAs well, a large portion of the people who look into family planning are not teens but adults, often in committed relationships or even married.And let's be honest. People have sex. They like to, they want to, they should be able to, and indeed they do. Does that mean they want to have children? Not necessarily.
