  •  I like facts and data. (none)
    I like reality based discussion.  But this seems to be extremely rare in the political realms.  I used to skip over to redstate regularly but I don't anymore.  The last abortion diary used statistics but mostly for shock value.  They mantioned that Russia has an abortion per live birth rate of at least three times the quoted rate for NYC.  The first question to my mind was why the rate in Russia so high?  Was it a lack of education or birth control?  Was it easy access to abortions?  Was poverty causing women to opt for abortion?

    No one asked these questions.  The only relevant comment implied that Russia(and other majority white Christian countries) were dooming themselves by lowering their birthrates.

    When ideology and morality trump everything else, it is difficult to have discussions about facts and data.  

    We must never lose it, or sell it, or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.
