Pro-lifers: Come on---why have you abandoned this discussion when it turned to solving the problems, some of which, you've had an influence on?

Are you speechless? Afraid? Guilty? or is it true that you don't care? (so...you care about the fetus but not about the child????)

I have some solutions...

1) Promoting use of contraceptives, even using tax dollars to pay for them if we have to

2) Comprehensive sex ed in all public schools

3) Adoption reforms to make the process simpler, quicker, and more viable

4) Free health care for all children

5) Free Vasectomies for all men, and a serious national campaign to encourage them to do it.

How about free crainiotomies for people who want to sterilize other people.

That kind of thinking won't solve any problems...it just wastes time.

'However, at the same time they said that they are very committed to the idea of being able to choose. They are as much pro-choice as they are pro-life.

Does this make sense to anyone?'


Response : Its a Baby if they want it, and a Fetus if they dont want it. (You dont kill the first, but its okay to kill the second and have it sucked into a sink ) .

No, a fetus is a fetus. People who want a baby resign themselves to toughing out the fetus part first , in order to get the baby afterwards. Some people are actually capable of intellectualizing this.

Not really. He isn't saying 'forced' vasectomies, just FREE. Like the condoms PP hands out. I think it's a good idea myself, but I doubt it's feasible.
