Loveschild -- what about families where the children are indoctrinated that God hates them and wants them to burn in hell forever because of how they are? Should those children be taken away by the corresponding authorities?

@72 -- yes, Margaret Sanger did say that... because she wanted to make sure that people weren't misinterpreting their mission in a time when black women were sterilized against their will.

For example, my grandfather worked in USAid and would go to third world and developing nations and dig wells, build irrigation facilities, and generally help people develop their farmlands into stable, sustainable fields through careful water management. He had to deal with a lot of superstitious local clerics who would try to tell people that The Americans Had Come To Poison Us All, and so if pressed, you could probably have heard my grandfather say something to the effect of "We do not want word to go out that we want to poison the wells, and the minister is the man who can straighten out the idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." In other words, we should make sure that the ministers know what our agenda is so that they can stomp out any misinformation of exactly the sort you yourself are spreading at the first sign of it.

Sanger knew that being able to control one's fertility and limit family size was the first critical step in stabilizing one's family and giving your family an economic future. Shame on you for spreading lies about her mission. You know what lies make the Baby Jesus do, after all.

@80 -- they successfully practice abstinence--until they don't. That's the problem... there's no longitudinal data that supports that teens wait more than a few months longer to have their first intercourse when they pledge abstinence than when they don't. But by golly they sure don't know how to protect themselves when they do finally act like most normal horny teenagers do. A few teens can make it and marry right out of highschool so that they can finally have sex and divorce by the time they're 20.

I tend to value the living, breathing women who will be slaughtered as a result of your desire to outlaw abortion as opposed to the little bundle of tissues.

I know, we don't really matter.

call'em like we see'em

You're absolutely right, you shit-smeared asshole who can only achieve climax by furiously masturbating to thoughts of naughty sluts getting punished for having forbidden sex.

I've yet to have an anti-choicer actually answer the "how much time should she get" question honestly. Although there's enough misogyny in these Mars Hill trolls we might just see a full display. Exciting!

You stupid bitch.

Aw, you're not even going to pretend to respect women when you're telling us what we can and cannot do with our bodies?

Ugh, so much anti-choice trollage.

What should the punishment be for a woman who has an abortion? How much jail time should she do?

And don't say "none" because if I hire someone to kill my husband, I do time. If Abortion = Murder, then hiring someone to commit that murder is just as much a felony as any other hire job to commit adult murder.

So how much time should one in four american women be forced to get for having an abortion?

While we're at it, I would like to remind you that in the days before abortion was legal, women who had back-alley abortions that went wrong were routinely denied medical care until they confessed that they'd had an abortion and ratted out the doctor or boyfriend. And no matter how good and Godly and life-worshipping you think you've raised her, anti-choicers: that could be your daughter, scared, alone and dying of a perforated uterus while being yelled at by a police officer in her last moments.

Pro-life my ass.

I remember the first time I saw that commercial I wasn't sure whether to laugh or throw something at the TV.

You know, as a cash-strapped mom driving a brand-new hatchback trying to make ends meet and the pennies adding up, eliminating the daily soda allowance might also free up a little extra cash since you won't have to buy all that ritalin and insulin for your hyperactive, diabetic children.

Also, in the words of John Stewart: Close your trunk, lady.

Don't give them any ideas. Christ on a cracker.

My favorite Bible Quote to throw in the faces of the homobigots is from the New Testament [Mark 7:15]:

Nothing outside a man can make him 'unclean' by going into him. Rather, it is what comes out of a man that makes him 'unclean.' "

Now, Jesus may have been talking about kosher laws at the time. However, he was a cryptic user of parables. He may not have been talking about shellfish. He may have been talking about another man.

Caveat... Tops: You may be in some trouble when it comes time to ejaculate.
