    ha it's probably a bit more complicated than that but yeah it does feel like that is the viewpoint of some. pragmatism and maintaining objectivity is a lot more difficult than most people realize.

    Some claim it, some don't. Do you even file your own taxes? Itemize, or EZ? Because you should know, that just because you give to charity doesn't mean you get to write it off. And there's no extra money given back from a write off. They get to keep a little more of what they paid already by paying more.

    And precisely why IUDs are contraindicated.

    You missed the point completely.

    Not being a resident of Colorado, its laws are not my business.

    It does not appear that they outlawed the practice, just didn't assign tax money to it. It was previously privately funded, why not try to find other donors? Just because there is a solution doesn't mean it has to be a government solution, and responsibility for side affects could lead to lawsuits against the state, which in turn gets paid for by their citizens. Talk about government being all up in your business....

    But seriously, I would support a project like this, as a private venture, not a state one.

    No, you just think so because you don't understand what write offs are or their effect.

    Has an attempt been made for finding additional private funding?

    when I hear democrat, I think of someone who is a member of the democratic party. an actual member. not someone who usually votes with them. I usually vote democrat because currently, their candidates usually resemble my beliefs more closely than republican candidates. I've voted for republicans plenty of times, however, and depending on the campaign I will likely end up voting republican in the upcoming presidential election. I'm a liberal, but I'm not a democrat.
    Which is true of most people, and with the majority of democrats and republicans all on opposites sides of issues, most people end up choosing one side even if they dont register that way

    Really OT but this is one of my main curiosities about politics today people who vote for both democrats and republicans. Which beliefs exactly entail you to pick a republican over a democrat in 2016 if you mostly align with democrat values?

    and yeah, here in Colorado you can register to vote and simultaneously register with a party at the DMV when you get your drivers license. I was actually surprised at how smoothly it went when I had to get rid of my old VA license.
    In Texas if you vote republican youre a republican, if you vote democrat youre a democrat. Were crazy like that
