ROFLMAO, comparing 80 year olds dying of heart attacks and cancer to the deaths of child bearing aged women not practical or honest.<quoted text>Not even close:
About 800 women die from pregnancy- or childbirth-related complications around the world every day. In 2010, 287 000 women died during and following pregnancy and childbirth. Almost all of these deaths occurred in low-resource settings, and most could have been prevented.
More than 100,000 children in the U.S. foster care system were waiting to be adopted in 2011, according to a report by the Adoption and Foster Care Analysis and Reporting System. About 50,500 were adopted that year.<quoted text>There are waiting lists to adopt newborns, don't abort your child, let your kid live, adoption is the most generous gift in the world!
While tens of thousands of children are adopted from foster care each year, twice as many are still waiting for a permanent home, said Subcommittee Chairman Dave Reichert.Past federal efforts have increased support for adoptions and have helped states reduce the number of children in foster care each year.
You want to add a million a year to this.Again how many are you going to raise as your own???
http://www.citizenlink.com/2013/02/26/focus-o...<quoted text>Abstinence is "real sex Ed" and public schools may teach other forms too. When abstinence is practiced, pregnancy and STD risks approach zero.
The analysis of data from a large federal survey found that more than half of youths became sexually active before marriage regardless of whether they had taken a "virginity pledge," but that the percentage who took precautions against pregnancy or sexually transmitted diseases was 10 points lower for pledgers than for non-pledgers. Girls that take the pledge six times more likely to perform oral sex, and four times more likely to engage in anal sex.
I guess them girls taking it up the ass won't get knocked up.
Ya got me on that one. LOL
Why then did every Republican in Colorado Senate and Colorado House vote against real sex education for Colorado kids in 2013?<quoted text>^This is mere defamation, saying the G.O.P. doesn't care about children and anti-sex ed. The fact is, Republicans are pro sex ed and want abstinence taught in public schools.
Defund planned parenthood and this will get much worse.<quoted text>That's only true when you ommit the US makes heroic efforts providing healthcare for premature infants, where other countries, especially those with socialized medicine, wouldn't count them as mortal babies but discard as spontaneous abortion.
Here's a story about a man helping the USA catch up: http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2013/04...
Teen Pregnancy numbers have been going down for a few decades, hitting a 42-percent drop by 2008. The decline occurred across all races though blacks and Latinos continued to have higher numbers.<quoted text>We've spent billions on birth control and sex education and our abortion rates haven't fallen (and birth rates are down). This is why I value people who practice their religions, they have more children than secularists.
The dramatic decline is a huge success for those who have worked to prevent teen pregnancy, but there's still much work ahead.
