I would imagine that there are plenty of fundamentalist republicans who are baffled at that result.

Ow! My eyes! My doctor told me I shouldn't get Obvious in them!

This is genuinely shocking news.

*shaking my head*

Premature births are the leading cause of death for children in Detroit? That's awful. Hopefully, with broader access to healthcare that will change. Although homicide at second place isn't a much rosier alternative.
 
2014-05-27 03:46:11 PM
what will be really sad will be the statistics we'll start to see in red states that have closed a ton of clinics, like mississippi and texas. i'm guessing we'll see a spike in deaths from septicemia and an increase in horrific kermit gosnell stories.

correlation vs causation


When the economy sucks people fark more. People who are farking more but don't have money for the babies get rid of the babies.

Well, everyone who isn't being purposefully obtuse.

Science 2.0?

Even by your standards, that's pretty farking stupid.

Skewed libby-lib LIE-beral reporting.

The next thing you know, they'll be saying tax cuts for job creators doesn't boost the economy.

Or that science is a thing, when it isn't even mentioned in the bible.

Damned libs are all gay-brainwashed by core curriculum is what it is.

That explains the lowered birth rate during the Great Depression and the subsequent baby boom after the war.

It's amazing when looking at the long term how much cheaper contraceptives or abortions are vs society raising unwanted children.  There should be ubiquitous and free birth control, practical sex education, and hell, free abortions for everyone as well.  It's such a simple change that would save this country so much money and trouble in the long run.

/tiny flags for people who aren't happy with these ideas, of course.

Not their representatives. They know full well that properly funded family planning programs reduce abortions. That's why they oppose them.

A lot of right wing politicians owe their political careers to the existence of legal abortion. Without that bogeyman, there'd be nothing to thump their Bibles on.
 
2014-05-27 03:57:45 PM
I'm surprised there is so much sex going on in Detroit.

IIRC, there was a big down turn in '46 and '47 that put Truman very much at risk in '48.
 
2014-05-27 03:59:37 PM
Yes, but, not unlike drinking and driving and marijuana laws, if you outlaw abortion all together, it'll magically go away.
 
2014-05-27 03:59:49 PM
Next headline: for-profit abortion clinics franchise.

I think we all know the true cause is not letting our children pray or read the bible in school.

That is a rather outlandish assumption, considering they never let facts impede their agenda before.

Is that always true? IIRC there's research that during an economic downturn, people are too depressed (or too drunk) to fark.

Anecdotally speaking, there is literally nothing that prevents Mrs. Baull from farking.

It's been well understood that republicans cause abortions for a while.
 
2014-05-27 04:12:44 PM
Republicans don't want to stop abortions, they just want to run women's lives and punish them for being "sluts".

Abstinence only sex ed doesn't reduce unplanned pregnancy?  That's unpossible!  Gosh, Bristol Palin told me it worked like a charm!

Guys, seriously, how simple could it be?  You can have your conservative approved sex ed, or you can have low unplanned pregnancy numbers (which turns into low abortion numbers, and even if they drive out of state for it, it is still an abortion).
 
2014-05-27 04:18:29 PM
The objection to family planning, contreception, sex education has absolutely nothing to do with changing the number of unwanted pregnancies.  It has everything to do with forcing women to be punished for sex.  Period.  Even if she's married and has sanctioned sex, if God gives you a babby you take it whether you want it or not, whether you can afford it or not,  and for some extremists, whether it'll kill you or not.

No kidding?  Get serious subby.

I mean no one in a million years thought this would be the case.

Next thing you'll tell me is the predominant attitudes towards sex and sex education in this country cause an unnecessarily high STD rate too.

On the bright side, this will give conservatives another opportunity to blame poor people for being irresponsible, so they'll continue to have something to live for.

Having grown up in rural Michigan (The Thumb) and having family that are in the suburbs of Detroit and Flint (yeah, my grandparents were part of the white flight out of Flint, renting out the house they had lived at and moving elsewhere)... they don't surprise me.  It's just makes me want to scream.

I mean christ, these are people, same as you and me.  The differences are miniscule.

On the contrary, we found something that stopped Mrs. Samurai - gall bladder surgery.

The doc walked in for the pre-op and said, "First thing's first. Absolutely not, for at least two weeks."
