Any attempt by Republicans to make Abortion rare, such as banning Partial Birth Abortions Robin, have been vigorously opposed by the Pro-Abortion crowd, as you well know.

Tch.  And I thought it was part of the conservative quarrel with Ted Kennedy--all Kennedys, really--that it was all too easy for him to get laid.  Remember those lovely smears about Ted's deliberately killing Mary Jo Kopechne because she was supposedly pregnant by him?  Kinda like the ones about Hillary having Vince Foster killed because he was her lover.  ('Course, that's only when Rushboites aren't claiming she's a lesbian.)

You forget those smears about him cheating in college . Except that is why he got dropped out of college. But to hear the press they will jump out to attack those saying even truthful things about the Senior Senator for Mass.

So those dastardly Republicans forced Kennedy to be driving around at night with a hottie who was not his wife?

He must have been ministering to her needs, as Clinton did. What a pal!

I agree those smears were over the line.

We actually have no idea why Ted deliberately killed Mary Jo. :humble:

Maybe Joe Scarborough could shed some light.  You know, the Republican Florida Rep who resigned "to spend more time with his family" just as his female intern was found dead in his office and his wife divorced him.

What are you talking about?  Late term abortions are very rare and are only done under extreme circumstances (i.e., to save the life of the mother).  Most abortions are carried out much earlier.  And nobody's using abortion as birth control; I think everyone already knows this.  There's already another board on ExIsle for fantasy fiction.   :p  

The best way to reduce abortions is to promote contraception and encourage responsible sexual behavior.  Republicans don't do this.  Instead, there are Republicans who oppose certain forms of birth control, such as the pill, and support abstinence-only education.  In other words, Republican policies don't reduce abortions.  

Back to the topic: do Bush supporters have a political ideology?  And when a Republican (such as Dick Cheney) is caught making a boo-boo, why do conservatives say, "But Democrats/liberals/the other side does it toooooooo"?  For example, Cheney's hunting mishap has nothing to do with Ted Kennedy's sleazy antics.  Yet conservatives became very defensive and brought up Chapaquiddick after Cheney's accident.  Both were wrong, but they're unrelated.

Shhhhhhh!  They'll bring up Gary Condit!  "Lay off Joe!  Democrats do it toooooooo!"   :rolleyes:  :lol:

Abortion rallies are only about abortion-on-demand, using abortion as the first choice in contraception.

This is so incredibly overblown and ridiculous on the face of it that I'm frankly surprised you're not embarrassed to say such things.  

"Abortion as the first choice in contraception."  Jeez.  Even when they're legal, you've got to know that abortions are incredibly unpleasant, dangerous, stigmatizing, and expensive.  Claiming that abortion is anyone's first choice in contraception is like claiming getting false teeth is someone's first choice in dental care.


It's a whole lot easier, cheaper, more convenient, and discrete to use a condom, a sponge, foam, a Norplant, or any one of the dozens and dozens of other means of birth control available to the country.

But, since you're claiming that abortion is "the first choice in birth control," you're saying that there are more abortions performed in this country than there are condoms sold?  Fella, there've been occasions where I've gone through around a half-dozen condoms a night with a girl, and zero abortions.   Abortion definitely ain't the "preferred method," and making claims like that is really, really silly.   You do realize that, no?
