    In pursuit of that, they will back any policy that moves their agenda forward.  The biggest evil, in their minds, is abortion therefore anything that limits the number of abortions is good.  It is about zealotry, logic plays no part.

    •  I think logic place a part in, for instance, FOX (3+ / 0-)

      giving such fanatics air time. Ditto, Big Businesses that fund conservative groups.

      Their corporate owners profit from more pregnancies.

      Giving birth (giving life) should be a gift not an obligation or women and poor people are 2nd class by definition

      ...and reduce the number of abortions, then they'd heartily support the Prevention First Act, which seeks to provide comprehensive sex ed to public high school students and low-income healthcare patients, and also provide low- or no-cost contraception to people on low incomes.

      But of course, the righties killed this bill in Congress (and state-level equivalents of it in state legislatures) on the logic that it would "promote promiscuity," which lays bare the intent of the righties thus: NOT to reduce abortion, but to dictate people's, and more specifically women's, sexuality.
