    This is a very good diary. You make the points that drive so many of us nuts! Obviously Bush is exploiting it for the political effects -- he doesn't give a rat's ass about human life, human freedom, or women's health or rights. Thus, a logical approach like yours is worthwhile in defusing the fanaticism surrounding this issue among the theocons.

    A study of zoology and developmental biology is also very useful in making your case. Every animal creates many more possible offspring than actually survive -- it's the way of nature. To attempt to legislate nature away is idiocy.

      actually, ignorant of what a Tica is...

        ... is a Costa Rican gal.  The Bribri are a Costa Rican tribe in the Southeast of Costa Rica.  There probably are also Bribri in Panama.  I assumed you were a lady from the voice in my head as I read your thoughtful diary. Sorry to be presumptuous!

          no - bribri is just a nickname given me by my sister - but now I want to visit Costa Rica. I'll let the gender ambiguity remain for a while, since "on the internet, no one knows you're a dog."

            The sooner the better. Before it gets too Disneyfied. It's so gorgeous, especially out in the areas less traveled. The hiking, diving and kayaking is astounding. And the people are wonderful.  Very enlightened, and more biologists and naturalists per capita than just about anywhere else. Costa Rica got rid of their military in 1947 and have enjoyed peace and increasing prosperity ever since. They have free education and socialized medical care. They have the highest proportion of land in national parks and reserves of any country in the world -- around 30%. Ecotourism is their main moneymaker. Very smart people!
