Out of Christmas
My friend told his kids that Santa is not real and whoo boy did he catch hell from the other parents when THEY told the truth to their friends.

Abortion is a victim of it's own success. There was a reason it was made legal - many reasons actually. Rich people had no problem jetting off to Europe to obtain an abortion, the poor were left stateside to pop out unplanned baby after baby. You couldn't give away kids for adoption, orphanages were bursting at the seams. And yes, people who couldn't afford a flight to Europe often had illegal abortions, sometimes to horrifying effect.
Back in the 1970's the evidence for safe legal abortions was everywhere and everyone knew someone with a horror story. Now, 40 years later, thanks to safe legal abortion, the problems have largely disappeared. So it's harder for people to understand the need, which is the clearest reason to keep abortion safe and legal, so we don't backslide into the house of horrors that spawned the need for legal abortion in the first place.

There are all kinds of horrid, disgusting movies out there with murder and mayhem passing for entertainment. If the religiously delusional want to go see this movie, by all means they should knock themselves out. But, through their upbringing and cultural indoctrination if someone, as an adult chooses to be religious, or chooses to be in an abusive relationship, then that's their business. They must be getting some kind of benefit from the abuse - maybe it's their kink? AS long as they don't try to force their perverted world view on the rest of us and are only screwing up themselves and their progeny then it's all OK by me.
