  •  there are places (none)
    where I have "seen legislation trying to force women to have an abortion for the good of society."

    China, for one - and they supported by the Bush Corporation, to boot. Oh, they protest, Bushie and his shills may - but when it comes down to brass tacks, they want only profit.

    That is what guides it all  in GOOPer-land. Profit, and keeping the hoi polloi under control.

    It is a damn insult to progressives and liberals to imply that we, as a group would ever encourage abortion as a solution to a social or economic problem; it IS not beyond extemist capitalists to encourage abortion for the sake of profits.  

    It's certainly not beyond such stellar GOP figures like Bill Bennet to let slip what he REALLY feels - and I think he speaks for a lot of 'right to lifers' - a lot of them - "it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime ... you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down."

    Liberals and progressives that have tried to ensure since the early days of labor unions, health care, prenatal care, environmental protections, living wages, fair working conditions, fair and equal housing, education should not have to answer to those who bring this up in this manner.

    I have NEVER EVER heard a 'liberal' or progressive say that abortion is an answer to economic or societal issues. I would challenge anyone to post such a quote.

    Let's see those rich elite GOP white bastards that are so high and mighty with their 'right to life' provide the basics to those in need, first, before they open their damn mouths. What they need to do is to stay the damn hell out of out lives, and let us decide individually ourselves what is best for us.
