    Look around, Star. The sex ed that's happening now is not working.

    So pro-life is really about population propulsion, not living quality?

    In your view we'd be no better off than China or Russia.
    In my time I've been a; bartender, oilfield worker, sailor, steel plant worker, I worked a chemical plant in brazos county texas, chicken plant worker, I turned gloves inside out at a glove factory, been a salesman and I've worked more restaurants than I care to remember. I don't have a problem with hard work. The fact of the matter is if one is alive, one can make choices about what it is one wants to do. If one is dead.......

    As an aside why would it be better for us to hire our crappy jobs out to mexicans rather than doing it ourselves? My parents picked cotten when they were young. My mother was a fruit picker up north when I was conceived. I just happened to come from a long line of people of meager means but not too damn proud to work for what they had.

    Wrong as I will document at the end of this post, and once again you try and tell others what their position is, and as always get it wrong. Teaching abstinence is important, but it is incomplete. If I want to know what I think, I will ask myself, I don't need you to make up ****.

    The characteristics of an effective sexuality program include:
    o Focusing on abstaining from sexual activity and/or using a form of contraception3
    o Addressing social pressures to engage in sexual activity as well as refusal skills3
    o Reducing sexual behaviors that lead to unintended pregnancy and STIs3
    o Involving the participants in a manner that allows them to personalize the information3

    Awesome

    I am now in the pro-life crowd. . . lemme go get a license plate.
    While I have nothing against you advertising a pro-life stance you would be misleading people.

    Yes abstinence only sex ed does not work. In places where there is a comprehensive sex education, unwanted pregnancies are lower, as well are STI's.

    what does that have to do with my statement that people falsely claim that educating kids about sex will make the amount of kids having sex go up exponentially?

    Like I said. You want to screw with definitions? This is what will occur.

    My position, and definition of pro-life is simple. I'm not responsible for your lack of comprehension skills.

    That's a tall glass to force someone to drink alone when it takes two to tango.

    Unless you're willing to force men into being equal-partners and pull the weight of their decisions.
    You are aware babies command a high price on todays adoption market aren't you? Adoption is a very real alternative to killing.

    I have no idea what you mean by "natural unemployment." would you please explain it.

    shhhhhhhhh we'll just ignore that common sense and logic because if you comprehend capitalism its a non-factor

    yep without all those abortions we would have just made Americans that would ALSO work under the table for less than minimum wadge, no health care and do jobs that the majority of Americans DONT want, thats brilliant
