commented on Why Are Conservatives Fighting Contraception?
I am deeply, deeply offended at the fact we citizens explicitly support rampant reproduction by having to make up for the tax deductions taken for children and for donations to religious establishments. This is more expensive with respect to conservative religious fundamentalists they breed irresponsibly, tithe, and suck up more resources than single, childless people.
I think deductions should only be allowed for things that are actually in support of society.

From my own experience as a volunteer guard (called "an escort") at a Planned Parenthood in New York, I am certain that this will result in the anti-choice protestors blocking individuals paths in order to have one of those "quiet conversations". I could imagine myself being pissed that I was being delayed and shoving one out of the way...and getting arrested for assault and never getting inside. I think they would have thought of that. Its a plot.
