  •  If I am not mistaken, Red States (1+ / 0-)

    have a higher incidence for terminated pregnancies than Blue States but I also know the wingers explain this by claiming the problem is that women in Red States go to Blue States for terminations (which makes no sense on the face of it) and argue that if no states had clinics, then the rates would be uniformly low.

    What most of them miss is that the best preventive for terminations is not morality but prevention through education and a prosperous economy. Very few women have 12 children just so they can get a monthly check. (the welfare queen myth...most fraud I see in the newspaper is by or in collusion with middle class DSS employees who are in better position to perpetrate a fraud.

    •  Condoms help too (0+ / 0-)

      but not if the fundies prevent school nurses from handing them out.
