    Not sure why LO would use such a stat. He's typically better than that.

    •  Do you think the debate favors us right now ? (0+ / 0-)

      Honestly? But we can be right all we want but the winning the minds and hearts are important here.

        And the Catholic diocese has many arms with which to immediately spread their wishes and desires and intentions to shut down discourse.

        We will have to see what the blowback entails from the Catholic hierarchy attempting to manipulate the typical old "state rights" and "mandate" control mechanisms.

        The Catholic Church is tax-exempt and has far more monetary ability to take over hospitals across the country without the liability that others would have.

        I prefer my hospitals to be secular institutions. Or at least non-conforming to any specific religious doctrine.

        So, no, it is not balanced that the Church tries to twist this knife into women's backs.
