"We maintain that a woman possessing an adequate knowledge of her reproductive functions is the best judge of the time and conditions under which her child should be brought into the world. We further maintain that it is her right, regardless of all other considerations, to determine whether she shall bear children or not, and how many children she shall bear if she chooses to become a mother.
-- Margaret Sanger"

What is wrong with these people that they want the government entirely out of regulating food safety and the EPA, but they want the government all up in one's knickers about who one marries and when/if one has children???

Because the Bible says its murder!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Very much up for debate.)

Curiously enough, they don't seem to care about the parts of the Bible that don't support *their* lifestyle.

Funny, isn't it? You'd think they'd have noticed that Jesus was all about CURING blindness, not practicing it selectively. Yet another reason to be a happy pagan.

Oh, just the stupid Personhood USA people at it again, this time in Colorado. I shouldn't let it irk me so much -- it's unlikely to pass, since they've tried twice before there -- but on top of all the recent attempts to defund Planned Parenthood and other governmental posturing they really get under my skin. Grrrrrr.

Strange. Unheimlich in the best sense of the word.

Our view of America is mostly formed by Hollywood and very few people realise how conservative and religious large parts of the population are.

I hope sanity will prevail.

I'm not sure how large that portion is, but they're very very vocal LOL!

Well, just as an example, you'd never see a German Chancellor go to church. I have no idea whether any of our politicians belong to any religion and nobody would think to ask.

On American TV it is always made such a big production - the President went to this or that church, the preacher is known for saying this or that... (What the fuckery??)

When I was living in PA, people who said they aren't religious still attended church regularly. Here, anybody who goes to church for anything besides Christmas, weddings and funerals is seen as very, very, very religious.

Yes, it's very very odd. I can't figure it out and am hoping it's a temporary aberration. Myself, I could not care less what religion a person is. Quite frankly I'd be happier with an avowed atheist, since I assume they'd be relying on reason to make decisions rather than on some arbitrary mystical voice that might change its mind at any time!

*snort* That would not surprise me even a tiny bit. Wag the dog, baby, wag the dog...
