    And the only organization that doesn't oppose it as well as comprehensive sex ed is the National Right to Life Committee which takes no position on it. Event he so-called "Feminists For Life" oppose it.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

      You know those polls that show roughly 40% of people being 'pro-life'?  Well, obviously 40% of 300 million aren't out there protesting abortion clinics, nor denying themselves contraceptives, and so on.  So there are a large NUMBER of people like I am describing.

      All this wasted time learning and acquiring skills... And all along I should have just squinted to see Russia

          And besides, it makes sense that in Fundy country you are running into a lot of anti-sex people.  That's where they are.  But again, if you think everyone who is anti-choice is a fundy or living out there in the red areas, you are wrong.  

          About 25% of Americans identify as white evangelical christians, a percentage that has held remarkably steady for the past several decades.  About 40% of Americans identify as pro-life.  That's a considerable number of pro-life people who aren't 'Fundies' in the sense that we usually think about it.  Maybe those people aren't where you are, because where you are is full of fundies.
