You want stats on adult males having sex with underage girls? Are you saying you honestly believe this doesn't happen? And you don't think that a man would use the law to cover-up his tracks?

I'd like numbers on the % of the case gizmo presented (parental molestation/abuse) vs the case you are presenting, I think that is a pretty fair question to ask since I believe you mentioned earlier in the thread that gizmo's case is the minority.

How does that make it not a nanny-state measurement?

What's wrong with a 48-hour period to give the teenager and her parents time to discuss the matter and decide what's in her best interest? Of course those in the abortion industry do not want the 48-hour waiting period as they would lose profits for each abortion that does not take place.

CESpeed, what size is your tinfoil hat? I can see the opposing viewpoints in this, but so often your posts seem to be ruled by paranoia. I think you need to relax and see that the world is not out to harm you or your family.

It sounds like you'll be a lot happier in AR, I think they still believe its 1958 there.

Your point? I was simply letting the other poster know that it is quite hypocritical at this juncture to call Democrats proponents of the Nanny State when Republicans are into bossing people around on abortion, gay marriage, and stem cell research not to mention the Patriot Act.

Ah you're right, banning gay rights is a liberal measure because everyone that voted for obama is liberal.
