Texass had killed 470 inmates since 1976.
3x more than the leading competitor.
Popular rumor has it that over 25% of them were actually guilty of a crime.

While our justice system might be imperfect, I'd sure wish to defend the innocent more than the guilty.

Millions of abortions have a 100% rate of murdering the innocent.

I'm sure you'll be the first one in line at the TexASS Non Abortion clinic with adoption papers in hand.

If people would simply use contraception then unwanted pregnancies would virtually stop. Drawback here is that if the Republicans get their way here then even that would not be available, just like basic sex ed in public schools.

Chuggaboom, last I heard, Texas isn't the only state in the Union. The constitution guarantees the right to travel and, if you want/think you have to or want to get an abortion, visit another state.

That is correct but in reality why should one have to leave the state for something like this or in this case go to the other side of the a state the side of Texas since 42 of the 47 places that do this would now be closed down.

More on than off, go ask your mother. If you post a picture of her I might even remember her.
If she told you of this early enough or at all. Often, not even at 20 weeks it is always evident she may be pregnant you buffoon.
My 6 daughters are all adults now and like my wife are petite. We have 8 children and with 5 of them my wife did not even look pregnant until well into the 7th month. Two of my daughters have children from their husbands and neither even began to appear pregnant until 6 and 7 months for any of their own children.

I am not confused at all, you are a buffoon, plain and simple.
Probably could not hit a barn if you were in it.
I am at a place called Ruta Maya on Wednesday mornings between 10 and 11. You cannot miss me, I will stick out like a sore thumb. I do not need to know what you look like as if you miss your chance I will know what you look like when I am done with you.
