We danced this dance last night. There's no question Sanger was strongly against abortion and promoted contraception instead. Something Planned Parenthood, the organization she started, should be doing a heck of a lot more of.
But she did publish a pamphlet, Family Limitation, where in her own words she said:“If you are going to have an abortion, make up your mind to it in the first stages, and have it done. On the other hand, there is often a feeling of the strongest desire to continue with the pregnancy. It is for each woman to decide this for herself, but act at once, whichever way you decide.”
I did not make a false claim.
Actually, I was quite shocked Margaret Sanger and I were on the same page emphasizing knowledge and prevention instead of abortion.
So far, the majority of your claims are full of BS.

I believe I was talking about prevention being the best cure for abortion. Like Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood.
She and I both apparently share common sense.
Knowing what causes pregnancy is not common sense. That's been explored.
Knowing that the rails that you saw don't meet has not been explored. That's common sense.

You have no common sense and can't add two and two. Logic says, if you can't have an abortion here in this PP clinic you will go to another where they do them.
"Commons sense" is not proof. It's what someone says when they have no proof.

I already knew you did not.

Yes, you did make the false claims that I mentioned.

You were "shocked", because you'd never bothered to do the necessary research before. You simply believed whatever flawed source you are still reluctant to name.

You're confusing "common knowledge" with "common sense".
Literally they might seem the same. But figuratively they are not.

Either they refer them to a clinic that does abortions or they don't help the woman get what she wants. Isn't PP there to 'help' women have a choice. Not referring them wouldn't be 'helpful'. Would it? I know it's hard but try to make sense.

The abortions are simply referred to another PP clinic that does perform them. It's all in the family.
Of course. Abortion is very lucrative for PP. It is where they make their most money. Pushing the abortion alternative is in PP's best financial interest. Bitner knows that. She is just playing stupid. Which is not very difficult for her.

My point stands. Your descriptions of yourself as an "Atheist" bear no resemblance to the reality of Atheism. They are what an Evangelical Christian BELIEVES, without any real knowledge, that Atheists believe, feel, think and do. You were never one.

You have no idea how the SCOTUS works, or what its duties are. RvW was based on an appeal based on the texas abortion law--which is how they got involved. The court found the law to be unconstitutional--which is their main function. And sinc every state that had abortion laws were based on the same terms and circumstances, they all were equally unconstitutitonal.

The mob does not get to vote on rights.

BTW--there are two SSM cases going to the court this year. We'll see.

I made no false claims.
If each state had been given the right to vote on something as significant as abortion, each state would then have the legal right to do so or not based on a democracy of majority rules.
If a pro-lifer lived in a state where it was made legal, they would have to live with that decision.
If a pro-choicer lived in a state where it was not made legal, then they would have to do the same.
However, 9 people in a population of over 300 million decided this major and moral controversial issue all by their lonesome.
Why are states given the right to vote for same sex marriage and not abortion? Of the 31 states where the issue of same sex marriage has been put directly to the electorate, it was voted down.

So because one state contested it, all states have to be subjected to "Their Highnesses'" ruling?

It's always one woman who decides what's best for all of us when no one was complaining.

No wonder Eve ate the fruit from the fobidden tree first.

Madeline Murray O'Hare complained when no one else did. Ironically, her son became a Christian and actively spoke out against his upbringing by his own mother.

Norma McCorvey, aka "Roe", complained when no one else did. Ironically, she became an anti-abortion activist.

Not only did they change the landscape but left a maze we've gotten lost in. Talk about going completely overboard losing all perspective.

Your failure to provide proof of your claims doesn't mean I'm not making sense.

Are you suggesting that the only place to get an abortion is a PP clinic?

Now that I had to dumb it down for you, please provide proof that they ONLY refer to other PP clinics.

Your misogyny is showing.

Yes, since it's the SCOTUS's function, they DO get to decide. And since all state's laws were based upon the same unconstitutional premise, they have to abide by that decision. That is how our gov't works.

If it hadn't been McCorvey, it would have been someone else. It was time.

Yes, complain about teachers not being able to preach at a captive audience of children. I have no doubt that if they were allowed today, and your child's Wiccan teacher wanted to lead the class in a ritual invocation to the Goddess, you'd be the one complaining. So, kindly can the hypocrisy.

You're the one losing all persepctive here. Your melodrama is duly noted.
