I just ate a banana and did some math involving multiplications (some vector dot products).

So I have been fruitful and multiplied at least once today. (and it's not unusual that I do this several times each working day -- to shake things up a bit, I sometimes have an apple or pear, and mix in other linear algebra into it as well.)

I even get paid for the math part...

Looks like *I'm* going to heaven you losers...

The majority of abortions are performed by the eighth week of pregnancy, when the fetus is about the size of a lima bean.

And really, who likes lima beans?

Brontes: Abortions could be virtually eliminated if sex education and birth control were freely given. What is it going to be religious righters?


Wrong. So very wrong.
Birth control is abortion. Condoms, IUD's, spermicides, morning after pills, RU-486, gay sex, sodomy, the regular pill, and a baby killing doctor rooting around with a toilet auger - all of them are murder.

Howerver, vasectomies and blue-colored pills are both parts of God's Plan.

Apparently doctors hate God, or babies, or some damn thing

No prescription or doctor's exam needed: The nation's largest group of obstetricians and gynecologists says birth control pills should be sold over the counter, like condoms.


And by "sold over the counter", they mean "added to the water supply", right?

So, the GOP causes the recession, which leads to increased use of BC, which in turn cuts the number of unintended babies, and by extension, abortions.

This might be the GOP's new platform: Continued economic malaise as a means to eliminate abortions.

So, you're not pro-choice so much as anti-life.

zarberg: hbk72777: So we either have to pay for abortions or birth control. All for people who can't stop farking like rabbits

1) You say "farking like rabbits" like it's a bad thing.

2) abortions or birth control. Guess which one is cheaper, probably by at least an order of magnitude.


Anal.

Gyrfalcon: They'd be seeing a doctor for an entirely different reason.


The problem is finding a doctor to prescribe it. The US is years behind the EU in treatment of transgenderism. I'm just saying that OTC birth control pills would be a Godsend (Hah.) for more than just women.

Pretty telling that pro-choice policies lead to fewer abortions. This is how hard modern conservative ideology fails.

D) None of the above.
Obviously.
No abortions, no birth control, no sex education. Now, if they could just get a handle on humans' instinctual predisposition to fornicate, it'd be smooth sailing.

The reason for the decline wasn't clear, but some experts said it may be due to better use of birth control during tough economic times. Their theory is that some women believe they can't afford to get pregnant.

I would like to know the sales figures on the morning after pill.

Add in a dash of Psalm 127:2-5 "Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one's youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.." and you get Quiverfull!


Given that those words were written at a time where the human population is a mere fraction of what it is now, I think the Lord would allow us to take a break.

I think the leadership of the GOP deliberately favors legislation that encourages more abortions, so they can have something to drive the evangelical vote.
