    limit it do not also support contraception and sensible reproductive rights teaching early and often, as this is the sort of conduct which prevents many abortions, but they don't. Nothing could have prevented the one described in the diary, and for that abortion would have been the only remedy. The judge who said 'not near death enough' should have been pitched off the bench.

    Of course, one reason could be the census information in this morning's NYT, which indicated that the seismic shift from a majority white US is now well underway, because the generation of children is dropping among white folk and not dropping but increasing everywhere else. But I do not believe that any such demographic effects can or should be avoided by this forced birth, death-accepting ideology.
