  •  If they put 1/10 as much of their time (3+ / 0-)

    Into foster parenting, into soup kitchens, into food banks, into Big Brothers and Big Sisters, into tutoring, into providing respite care for the parents of disabled children or volunteering at an after-school program or a shelter.  

    If they put 1/10 as much of their time into making a difference in the lives of the children who are already here, maybe they would begin to understand why the rest of us get so angry when they direct all their attention on blastocysts, and ignore the crying, hungry, abused real live human being who desperately needs their help.

    But they won't.  "Personhood amendments" and controlling women are clean and black and white.  Real children with real problems who need real help are messy, and there are too many colors involved...
