So a politician wishes to share her abortion story in the hopes of educating others regarding the importance of birth control, to prevent other girls from being in the situation she faced, and she then receives death threats. Lunacy. Who on earth would threaten someone with harm when all they have done is share past experiences in the hopes of helping others?

Nevada, which has one of the highest rates of unintended teen pregnancy in the nation, is considering updating its abstinence-only education policy to require more comprehensive sexual health instruction in public schools. This week, in a debate over that proposed legislation, Nevada Assemblywomen Lucy Flores (D) testified in favor of the bill, sharing her own personal story about the consequences of inadequate sex ed — all of her sisters became teenage mothers, and Flores herself decided to have an abortion when she became pregnant at 16.

The right-wing media jumped on her quoted testimony, with headlines proclaiming “Democratic Legislator: I Don’t Regret Killing My Baby in Abortion.” That coverage may have inspired some people to reach out to Flores, because local television producer tweeted on Thursday that the state lawmaker cancelled her appearance on a political news show after receiving death threats from people who had heard about her abortion story.

Kind of ironic if true. At least she got a warning.

I'm not one bit surprised. Anti-abortion folks are only concerned about a fetus as we have seen time and time again in this forum.

No different than the threats made and violence o the other side. its socirty today with a few nuts as we have witnessed time and again. Might be tha the 60's justification of violence to move positions is to blame.

The consequences of inadequate sex ed? More like the consequences of her own making. Typical Democrat. Blame society for the fact that she's a floozy who can't keep her legs closed.
