Since now that the republicans have won all the seats that they have and are now touting banners (so to speak) about repealing Obamacare, I would love to see how these people would treat the idea of free birth control to any woman capable of reproduction (any age) who wants birth control to have it.

If they want to scream no, ask them if they are pro-abortion.

To me, refusing a woman the right to be able to prevent pregnancy is akin to condoning abortion. Plus the fact, that if women are forced to carry to term babies that they can't afford to keep, don't want,under the age of 15, rape & incest, they either will; have the abortion anyways, abandon the baby (if we are lucky, at a hospital/police/firestation), or kill the child. From what I understand, adoption has become much harder to obtain, plus the added fear of having one of the parents showing up on the door and saying that they want the baby back, or in the case of the father, that he didn't agree to the adoption.

The expense that the community will bear due to overpopulation will break the bank in a good economy, I am not sure if we could economically could recover any time soon with this additional burden.

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
