jigawatt's first rule of slashdot: Every scientific discussion on slashdot devolves into a heated argument about what science actually is.
No one is pro-abortion, you moron.
Some people are. And some of them work for your local Planned Parenthood affiliate. See - http://liveaction.org/projects - for more details.
Because planned parenthood provided free services to those who can't afford to pay, not to everyone they're trying to manipulate?
So offering true pertinet information to someone in an effort to help them make a more informed choice would be manipulating them? And I suppose things like lying about fetal development and covering up rape are not manipulative? Cause that's what Planned Parenthood does to help moms make their choice.
Some (not all) pro-choicers are de facto pro-abortion. Why does Planned Parenthood charge moms for ultrasounds while cpc's all over the country give them for free?
Interestingly, the quote at the bottom of slashdot right now is - "Everyone is entitled to an *informed* opinion." -- Harlan Ellison
This is exactly what an ultrasound does - it gives the mom more information and makes her more informed. Why do some Planned Parenthood clinics (like in New Jersey) not even do ultrasounds unless the mom already wants an abortion? Why do other PP clinics do ultrasounds but not let the mom see them, even if they ask? I'll go ahead and answer: when moms see an ultrasound they are way more likely to not abort. A more informed mother means less money for PP. Simple as that.
I expect to see opposition to this from some pro-choicers.
Back in 2008, I only expected Obama to be as bad as Jimmy Carter. He surprised me by having all the badness of Bush (Dubya), Carter, and Nixon.
If Obama completes his two terms, then Richard Nixon should get an apology. Watergate would rank pretty low on the list of scandals if it happened now.
Yes, I have never texted anyone who uses facebook. I can say that with some sort of credibility due to never texting. I'm one of those odd people who prefer to, ya know, make PHONE calls with a PHONE.
Way to go. I take it back.
Facebook didn't get any kind of information from me. Take a wild guess how I accomplished this feat.
Hint: They can't exist without us. We can exist just fine without them.
So you've never texted anybody who uses facebook?
You can close your mouth now.
