    --for your question here, Cali, when I went to Catholic school:

    ...there's a chance that there will be a fertilized egg that, for whatever reason, does not implant into the prepared uterus to start the 9-month (approximately) process. In addition, miscarriage rates (medically known as spontaneous abortion) are approximately 10-20% in the early weeks of pregnancy (up to 20 weeks). So if these folks are really concerned about the unborn, why not ask God why He is killing all these innocent lives?

    Because, by the logic of the anti-choice right-wingers at the hellhole that was my Catholic middle school, "it's God's will, not yours, when an innocent child is allowed to die." And according to this "logic," that's why bad things happen to good people so very, very often. It's God's will, not yours.

    And the still-practicing Catholics in my family wonder why I'm an atheist...

    Seen on Facebook: "Rich people are not the cause of a robust economy, they are the result of a robust economy."
