Re: So, the abortion issue is now back in the limelight...

Actually yes, because European abortion laws are based on sound science and data. While over here fake "Crisis Pregnancy Centers" operated by ~insert random evangelical organization~ can set up shop right next to an actual women's health center, lure them in, pretend to be medical profess...

Re: So, the abortion issue is now back in the limelight...

Car wrecks are called accidents. I never understand that. Most car wrecks are because at least one person screwed up. Why is that an accident then? Accidents imply no fault, when in reality there's almost always a fault, and a driver fault at that. :? An accident implies no intention, not no fault.

You also forget to mention that those nations gave the woman the choice and in almost 100% of the cases, they still aborted the child after being fully educated on the issue.

Re: Wealth gaps between different ethnic groups

So I've been following the punditry and the congressional hearings on slavery reparations and I thought I'd bring this up since there's the common refrain now that it's not about writing checks to any individuals but lifting black people as a whole up. Why do we just assume the wealth gap between w...

Re: The Iran War

Let's see how it plays out, but so far President Trump might be the only person in his administration that doesn't have a hard-on for war and is (correctly) keeping us from a conflict with Iran.

And in the end, that's all that matters.

Re: Rural Americans would be serfs if we abolished the Electoral College

I feel like that's a stretch of an argument. I think it's perfectly fine to call out Israel/Hamas without demonizing the regular people that live within those communities. I don't think it's antisemitic or anti-Palestinian by association if you call out Israel/Hamas. I dont give a **** either way, ...

I know you in particular are not saying it, but I'll go ahead and clarify: Calling the Israeli government out is not anti-antisemitism (btw, many arabs are Semites but that's semantics). Plenty of American Jews I know dislike and criticize the Israeli government, and they make a fairly large commun...

Hopefully the girl gets the medical and emotional support she needs, as well as the choice to go to another state if required (although it says she'll be able to get the abortion in Ohio until mid-July when the law takes effect, but in-case she decides after July.).
