    Has a lot to do with his own dishonesty, while he deflects the question by calling others dishonest. Once again, he who smelt it dealt it.

    It is bullcrap because it did not work then and it does not work now.

    Girls got pregnant in the 1800s, 900s and forever outside marriage. It was a disgrace back then and the reality hidden from public... it was taboo.. but it did happen. Was the grip of fear by religious dogma much higher back then? Sure, and I dont deny that brainwashed people lived up to the abstinence bullcrap out of fear, but no matter what, girls did get pregnant, did have sex and so on. And that was when there was no safe forms of contraception...

    but guess what.. Today we do have contraception, and premarital sex is no where near as taboo as it once (hell it is only 40+ years ago it was taboo really) was and the grip of religious fanatics has been weakened considerably. Only blind stupid and moronic people would deny the populace any and all methods to protect the health of people based on some warped religious dogma indoctrinated over the centuries.

    Abstinence is and always has been, a way to control the female part of the populace... submit to the male dominated world view, and refute your own sexual urges till you get married..because it is good to be a virgin on your wedding night since then the man will know you are pure and free of sexual transmitted diseases. and now he owns you.....Christianity urges this, Islam urges this.. same crap to control women.

    Actually, while Conservatives don't believe in abortion, they take a position that it is up to the states to decide, and none of the Federal government's damn business, one way or the other.

    Its called deflecting away from the issue because you are either ashamed of the facts, and/or disagree with the facts... a classic right wing tactic used for the last many years..

    Not all conservatives don't believe in abortion. Goldwater for example felt it was a personal choice.

    But MrVicchio's lean says he is "very conservative", so obviously he knows more than you do about conservatism.

    And why do they want the states to decide such things?

    Is it because they know they cant win on such things on a national level.....

    oh yea, states rights... sure...

    I'm pro-choice and I think it would be better left up to the states to decide. Federal authority = bad.
