    That is what I was saying about Sanger

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    So provide all of those other services and divorce yourself from the abortion issue. People that really want an abortion can find a place to have one on their own.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    But it doesn't work. Pro-choice is an accurate description. If you are on the other side of that position you are anti choice. Pretty simple stuff man.

    The lady in Dirty Dancing learned that one the hard way.

    Dirty dancing was set when? The early 60's? Quite a bit of difference today.

    If you really want to fight this issue you lose on all accounts. The federal government does not have the power to fund PP and when they breached the constitution to give themselves this power they also took the power to take it away.
    If you completely ignore the real-world implications of such funding, yeah, sure...

    It's very easy to say "It's not in the Constitution!" and have that be the conversation ender. It's harder to consider the real-life impact of funding PP.

    PP isn't the only one who runs free clinics. And no, I don't suppose Texas did let these folks know where to shop for free services. I imagine they'll do the leg work themselves if there really is the need.

    Here's a clue for you, the state does not have to support abortion, period. If you're saying the majority of PP's mission is to be a condom provider, then machines would and should easily replace them. It comes down to this, if they continue to provide abortions they don't get public funding. Why don't you and all your buds get off yer duffs and send them some money if you're so hot to support them. Do it with your own dollars.
