If Roe v. Wade is overturned, than the rich white people biatching in this article will just go back to private, clandestine doctors for their daughters' abortions.  So they are correct, from that standpoint.

And watch the rate of unwanted pregnancies absolutely skyrocket in the states that most want to overturn Roe v. Wade...because those same states have the most deplorable sex ed standards (if any sex ed at all).

Renate Sims of Round Rock told the Senate Education Committeeshe strives to teach her five children that "married sex and only married sex is appropriate.

Well that settles it then.  This one woman in Texas has an opinion on what's "appropriate", so therefore the whole State should surely be expected to conform its educational curriculum to her standards.  How could anyone argue otherwise?

Didn't they just a couple of weeks ago do the math and figure out the 75M or so in cuts was actually going to cost 275M ?
Was this guy sick that day? No one took notes for him? FFS.

I'm pretty sure Planned Parenthood would be pretty thrilled if they never had to perform another abortion.

Are there people who really think abortion is their big ticket item? That they get people in the door with loss leaders like pap-smears and mammograms, and then make the hard sell that they really should get rid of that fetus while they're there, what with the sale and all?

THIS

I've always said they should take a different approach to the abortion issue: outlaw abortions for Republicans only. Eventually the self-imposed eugenics will spell GOP win, right? Right?

Upselling and bait-and-switch are Planned Parenthood's modus operandi.  Always has been.  That said, I kind of wish I had a uterus so I could get an abortion with heated leather seats.

Strangely enough, Roe v Wade being overturned would only end up with abortion being illegal in red states. Rich people would just take trips to California or NYC to do some shopping and get an abortion.
Poor people would be stuck with long bus trips. Poor teens would be stuck with new babies.

One solution would be for blue states to ban all abortions on women who lived in red states for the last 5 years. Sorry, go back home to get that abortion.

(yes, I know that would not work. and it would only hurt poor women.)
Ok better solution, women from red states traveling to blues states would be charged an out of state surcharge, means based. If you have a credit card or money, you would be charged a 10x surcharge and your name would be published online. If you are a poor teenager, it would be free and you would be given free transportation back home.

HAHAHAHA HAHA H
I really hate these people.

Yeah, this shiat was kinda funny at first (2006 or so when these idiots, who admittedly have been around forever, started actually getting their shiat into law), but at this point it's losing them voters at a pretty damned good clip.  The gutting of the prenatal and pregnancy care programs and the affordable health-care programs in general has _not_ gone down well in these parts, even with those that are religious and agree with the validity of suppressing abortion providers specifically.  The GOP is fast becoming the party that, at best, throws the baby out with the bath-water.

Maybe the Democrats were onto something to not even try to win any races in Texas, apparently the greatest 'turn texas blue' endeavors are already fully funded from the right.

//I am, however, still mad about the Dems not taking the low-hanging fruit because they stupidly wrote off the state, and ended up giving us Cruz.  I may not forgive them for that one for quite some time.

catusr: Don't they realize that many of these unwanted babies will be brown and grow up to vote Democrat?


Given what lack of abortion access statistically most strongly correlates to, most of them won't be legally allowed to vote due to the felony record.

That's why they put all of the abortions in the back, no?  My advice is to reject the extended cervix agreement, it's pure profit.

Because once you're married abortion becomes impossible. Or something?

Sex shouldn't be saved for marriage, it should be saved for whoever the fark you want to share it with. Know when you're defeated.

I'm always astounded by Republicans' belief that kids won't be able to figure out how to have sex if we don't tell them.
Do they think there's something written on the back of a marriage license that explains where the penis goes?

What always astounds me is that if you ask many of the Abstinence Only supporters how old they were when they lost their virginity many of them would say under 18. You're trying to stop the very thing you engaged in as a young teenager (this is of course assuming that not many kids under 18 are married) and is the very definition of hypocrisy. You can defend it by saying, "Well I regret having sex at such a young age, it turned out to be a horrible mistake." But what these people fail to take into account is that it was a horrible mistake FOR THEM, not for everyone else. Why was it a horrible mistake? Most likely because they were uneducated about the consequences and uninformed about the topic of sex in general. And this fits in with your point... how exactly does it help your cause to keep these kids in the dark about sex? Don't teach them about sex and they wont have sex? The real world doesn't work that way. I have never been able to understand how someone could justify this crappy logic to themselves. Gives me a headache.

That's why kids in conservative households never get teen pregnant. Right, Bristol?

Teenagers are gonna have sex. Unmarried people of all ages are going to have sex. I might never get married, and if you told me I should never have sex, I'd laugh in your stupid, repressed face.

How come the highest rates of teen pregnancy happen in the south? Because they just say "NO SEX FOR YOU!" and don't teach them how to do it in a responsible way. But studies and biology are the devil's tools. Goddamn idiots.

Often they encourage risky behavior like suggesting condoms have an extremely high failure rate because sperm and STD cells are smaller than the space between each latex molecule meaning condoms are just expensive placebos against getting preggers.

I mean this guy's just trying to appeal to his voting base by trolling... *cough* I mean appealing to their emotions.... *cough* I mean values.  Give him a break!

Something so trivial can be easily made into a grand stand for family values.  And something so trivial will almost certainly have a higher chance of passing and giving this senator a "victory."  A victory he most certainly wouldn't have otherwise.  Such a move is a desprate attempt for "victory" ammunition for his next election.

Here in the great state of OK, sex ed is not mandated but some schools are starting to have it.  Problem is that it is abstinence based.  Mrs. Xtal went to the parent meeting to see what it was about and left before the end fuming.  Part of teaching is about STDs and HIV/AIDS  but no mention of sex being involved.  Yeah, I have no idea how they do that.  The more interesting bit was that some of the parents who were there are either living in OZ or complete idiots, most likely both.  She told me one father stated his 6th grade kid has no idea about male homosexuals, that they even exist.  Unfortunately the derps in power, OK is the "reddest" state in the nation, also believe that and try and force it on everybody.  I didn't go to the meeting since I most likely would be charged with assault after punching someone.

Doesn't even have to be all that clandestine. A doctor can come up with an awful lot of reasons for a D&C, and the procedure can be done in-office. At least, that's how it was done when I was little (a kid could learn an awful lot listening in a her mom's ladies' card parties).

What the hell do they say about it then?

"In the 1980s before it was fully understood, HIV was sometimes transmitted by blood transfusions and other medical procedures.  However, with improvements in testing our blood supply has been safe for many years.  We have no idea how HIV has continued to spread after that time. One possible vector is witches."
