Thursday 14 August '08 show

  • Guest: Kristan Hawkins, Students for Life. Does the new Planned Parenthood ad targeting teens about oral sex cross the line? She's offended by the videos on web site put up by Planned Parenthood, Oregon where kids of any age could see it, but she's only upset because it is public funded - he organization does get some public funds. She is calling for defunding of Planned Parenthood.
  • Bumper Music: Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This),Eurythmics (video).
  • Why can we talk about murder that few do, but not about sex that most do?
  • Article: Georgia War a Neocon Election Ploy? Robert Scheer.
