like good citizens should, then "never" damn well should apply. Keep government out of my womb.

In politics, it absolutlely applies. Case in point - postwar Gemany.

Thank you for the OP where you stated it quite perfectly!

Trying to make some ominous statement about women's right to choose. The future is created by us. It's not something that just happens.

ignorant asswipes who don't get it until they go thru something or have a family member go thru something.

They are all moral until their daughter is knocked up at 15 or their sister is raped or they find out towards the end of a pregnancy that something is horribly wrong or that the woman's life is in mortal danger what kind of rights they have lost in various states due to their ignorance and "superiority morality complex".

If they would just keep with the "Govt out of my personal life" mantra thru and thru they wouldn't look like such hypocritical assholes. If they truly wanted women to have the right to make a choice about pregnancy, their would be universal healthcare and educational services provided for all people from birth to death. That young women have a safe secure place to access birth control and STD prevention (along with young men as well). If they were really for "life", they would increase the level of care for single moms and for parents accessing day care that is safe and affordable AND they would agree that funding for war (which kills) would be far more limited than it is today.

They go to church, are preached at, mis-guided on the "word of God" (which was actually written by men in different times and in different languages that have been interperted in different ways-- and that many ancient scrolls that could have been in the "bible" may have been taken out because they didn't help the politics of a certain time period), and then they stand outside clinics and try to shame every woman going in, even if it is only to het a breast exam or pap smear or another 3 month supply of cheap birth control.

Maybe this country should divide... Those who want to live in radical fundie land with lots of guns, no taxes, and laws based on religions (we already know what Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Somalia look like-- so we know how successful that adventure would be). And the rest of us sane people can live in a country that distributes the wealth fairly, cares for people over profits, doesn't allow $ to influence politics, sets sane, rational laws, and tries to perfect the Union our forefathers were truly trying to set. Maybe we can give them Texas? They would have a fighting start with the oil... They could at least have some way for the Barron Princes to rule over their lowly serfs.

if I could. I agree with every last word you wrote and I'm ashamed that I don't often write more myself. I usually keep my replies to a line or two. I guess I expect everyone on DU to already know anything I could say. But this thread if proof that many are still uninformed or misinformed.

Thank you for your well thought out response.
