Heavy Tshirt but good article. I think that legislature would have better things to worry about.

lets see now they have taken away a parents right to parent. they are now taking a way a woman's right to control her body and future. and they are calling procedures murder, just when does a woman have any legal rights anymore. so when your born if your a female you have all the rights until you reach puberty. no, i'm not having the government dictate how i live my life as a woman.

I think it is Americas's BIG stick that is getting us in more trouble stiking to countries where we do not belong... and it is much dirtier since war is a dform of raep of one country by another and as in the aftermath of WWII in Germany more rape once it was over.
Meanwhile all women face the risk of death in pregnancy and childbirth and should have complete medical freedom of choice in estimating the risks involved with their own life without pompous legislators, church officials, doctors, lawyers, newspaper, Fox News, Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter, the Pope or God or anyone else butting in. If God doesn't like what was created then do it again this time with more feeling.

Just think, if men wouldn't use their unprotected penises, there would be no need for abortions.

Ok...I guess the next thing we need to do is have a week where everyone goes about town wearing a t-shirt with the word, vagina on it. Is that what it takes for this country to act like it has any sense at all?

Ummm, can Care.2 writers try a bit harder to use proper grammar? The word "vagina" is a single word, not plural, hence the word "are" after that is not correct. How difficult is it to have somebody proof-read before submitting for an article?
