There were and still are al qaeda camps there. They may have politically disowned him, but they are anything but staunch allies against terrorism.

I can only suggest you do a little more reading on the Saudis. They disowned bin Laden and were targeted with several terrorists attacks. They are a staunch ally against terrorism.
Some Americans also joined the enemy. They were from America.

She was on the fence based on her own statements and writings over the years.
It is ironic that the woman who started Planned Parenthood said this about abortion:“It is an alternative that I cannot too strongly condemn. Although abortion may be resorted to in order to save the life of the mother, the practice of it merely for limitation of offspring is dangerous and vicious.”[The Nation, Jan. 27, 1932]
This is contradictory to giving out abortion information in the first edition of her birth control methods pamphlet, Family Limitation, published in 1914.
The only "abortion" information she "gave out" in that publication was to say that though there are times when it is "justifiable", that preventing pregnancy will prevent abortions. Given the direct quote above, any reasonable person would conclude that by "justifiable", she meant to save the life of the woman.

Simple perception.
Personal perception is not the most reliable of sources for fact. Especially when one begins with a belief they want to see proven. Your "perception" of the 1914 publication you referred to in your previous post proves that it's not reliable.

I asked for your source, and you couldn't answer. WHERE does your "perception" come from? WHERE do your supposed "facts" come from?

The gospel is simply the good news.
The disciples and followers of Christ continued spreading the good news so that by the time the New Testament was being written less than three decades after Christ's death, early churches had already been established in many places.
You're avoiding my question. Why?

Truly ironic. Sanger sounds more pro-life than someone who started Planned Parenthood.

“While there are cases where even the law recognizes an abortion as justifiable if recommended by a physician, I assert that the hundreds of thousands of abortions performed in America each year are a disgrace to civilization. I also assert that the responsibility for these abortions and the illness, misery and deaths that come in their train lies at the door of a government whose authority has been stretched beyond the limits of the people’s intention and which, in its puritanical blindness, insists upon suffering and death from ignorance, rather than life and happiness from knowledge and prevention.”(MS,“Birth Control or Abortion?” Birth Control Review [Dec. 1918]: 3-4 [MSM S70:0809])

"Knowledge and prevention". That's what I've been talking about.

Odd that Margaret Sanger and I would have the same message.

I don't know where you got this but the exact opposite is true, e.g. if you look down the railroad track and the rails seem to come together; do you perceive any reason why they don't? No. But common sense tells you that they don't.

I know. Odd, huh? On my soap box, I speak out about prevention as the only sure fire way to prevent abortions too.

She did say that if a woman chooses to have an abortion, she should put her mind to it in the first phases and get it done.

But we have the morning after pill now. Wonder why that's not being emphasized more by more women with a pulpit.

What point in telling people things they already know, or can learn easily if they wish?
And there WERE no gospels when Jesus supposedly lived.

Maybe this will force Texas into this century. In my state, a pregnant teen has sole decision-making powers over her own body regardless of what her parents want. That should be how it is in more states. But the rights and responsibilities come with teens being able to make their own medical decisions at an early age -- which includes mental health such as counseling. So it's not all rainbows and sunshine when the same teen can refuse treatment and/or refuse pregnancy against the parents' wishes. It does go both ways when these become law.
Why does she have to be pregnant to have sole decision-making powers over her own body regardless of what her parents want? Why isn't she given tht ability when she isn't pregnant?

Publications are not perceptions.

However, common sense needs no explanation by it's definition. Same as common knowledge.

It's connecting the dots. You just have to connect them all to see the picture or the picture is distorted.

It's emphasized. It's simply not regular contraception. It may have escaped your notice, but it's other name is Emergency Contraception. It's not mean for everyday.

By they way, the only people here who are against prevention are those Catholics who think it's a sin, and they tend to be on the anti-choice side.

No one is talking about the Torah, or the Jews. Do try to pay better attention.
