    I would expect this is because we have increasing numbers moving toward government subsistence as a way of life, coupled with the unemployment situation.

    I refuse to regard anyone as impoverished who has never truly known starvation.

    I refuse to regard anyone with a computer, smart phone, ipod, or car as impoverished. Did you just buy your son $160 Michael Jordans? Then I don't care about you.

    What an asinine thing to say.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    ...and any meaningful discussion is out of the window.

    seeing these nation-wide, cross-cultural & cross-racial issues, PURELY through a racial lense, is suspect & makes honest discussion very difficult.

    Yeah, I'm glad someone else noticed the games the article plays with the figures. They switch blithely between percentages and actual numbers as if they represent the same thing.
