    Have you noticed that almost all of the jerks who oppose abortion/choice are MEN? I'm sorry, but you guys don't have a horse in this race. It doesn't affect you. Unless, of course, you believe in sympathetic magick... you don't, do you? I mean, you don't think that if something that has part of you in it gets hurt, it affects you.... do you??? Hmmmmm.... maybe their brains ARE that dinosaur-ish.

    I like men who understand the issue. That's why I like liberals ;)

    As long as prejudice exists in this country - in this world - we are all its victims. ~~ Keith Olbermann

    •  I've noticed that (6+ / 0-)

      Back when I lived in Buffalo near an abortion provider, I noticed that most of the protesters standing outside trying to stop people from going in (and, as I pointed out earlier, usually just ended up annoying people who were trying to do their shopping) seemed to be men, and most of their leaders were as well. (Including, I'm sorry to say, a couple of brothers from my home town.)

      (Incidentally, that clinic was the reason why I met my husband - we met at a pro-choice rally organized to try to do something about those protesters, and the first thing I noticed about him was that he was wearing a sign that said, "No More Back Alley Butchers."  How could I not go out with a man like that?)
