I see a supreme court precedent for those being fired from their jobs for refusing the vax: "a woman's right to make her own medical decisions"

A tragic victim even having lived. Many children grow up and discover their parents don't love them or love them enough to be good parents. I cannot imagine discovering that your mother tried to kill you before you were born but failed.

How evil was Norma McCorvey was if this is true: “Later in life, she became a born-again Christian and she switched to a pro-life stance. “However, in a deathbed confession first released in 2020 documentary 'AKA Jane Roe', McCorvey claimed she faked her conversion in exchange for hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments by an anti-abortion group.”

It angers me that one of the answers given by the proabortion crowd is that many more children would be born into poverty and abuse were it not for abortion, as if those two are inseparable. Like poor children's lives are less precious, less meaningful, less valued than those of rich kids. Some of the most devoted parents I have known we're monetarily poor. The flip side is mom stayed home and raised her kids and dad worked 2 jobs. Everything the kids got meant something because everything was a sacrifice. The time dad spent with them was priceless because it was a sacrifice on his part. It's called being a grown up, a mature responsible human being. So again, why don't poor unborn lives matter as much as rich unborn lives? Classist garbage.

I read the comments, but I have a question. If abortion is now performed up until time of labor or even after birth, why does any woman need to take birth control and why do taxpayers have to pay for their monthly pills? just wonderin

Shelley Lynn Thornton says "I don't see why the government has anything to do with it" regarding abortion. Well, I guess that answers the question concerning where she now stands on the issue. It seems she has three living children. I wonder how many others she aborted?

My mother was a pro-choice (so poor people don't have babies) retired Methodist minister. When my daughter was pregnant, I sooo wanted to tell her that my daughter had an abortion. My daughter didn't have an abortion. Is abortion ok for other people's great-grandchildren but not for your great-grandchildren? My Br-in-law always wanted to ask her which of her 5 children she would have wanted to abort.

Hopefully, she will point out that she is alive because she was not aborted.

In remarks from the White House on Monday, an exasperated President Biden addressed the looming October 18 deadline before which Congress must vote to raise the nation's debt ceiling or face defaulting on its debts on the heels of last week's failure to whip enough support among congressional Democrats to move his domestic legislative agenda forward.Failing to raise the debt ceiling is "reckless and dangerous" according to Biden who attempted to explain the situation in layman's terms. Such a vote, Biden claimed, is "paying what we already owe, what has already been acquired" and "not anything new.""We're able to borrow because we always pay what we owe,"

Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp all remain down in what is now a four-hour-long global outage that experts say was caused by an internal error on Monday morning. Between 11.50am EST and 11.52am EST, Facebook made a series of updates to its border gateway protocol (BGP) which caused it to 'disappear' from the internet. The BGP allows for the exchange of routing information on the internet and takes people to the websites they want to access. Facebook's changes included withdrawals which removed its properties from the domain naming system it operates and essentially made it impossible for anyone to connect to the sites

The best way to do that: Vaccination and booster shots, he said. "We've just got to concentrate on continuing to get those numbers down and not try to jump ahead by weeks or months and say what we're going to do at a particular time," Fauci said.

On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Yasmin Vossoughian Reports,” Rep. Ritchie Torres (D-NY) argued that the $3.5 trillion price tag for the Build Back Better Act reconciliation package “is a modest investment” for an economy the size of America’s. Torres said, “[T]here’s misconception about the price tag of the Build Back Better Act. The Build Back Better Act, the original draft, it is not 3.5 trillion over the course of a year. It’s over the course of ten years. So, it’s $350 billion. Which, for a $20 trillion economy like ours, is a modest investment. So, I think it’s shortsighted to focus on the price tag.”

Benedict Cumberbatch is reflecting on playing a closeted cattle rancher who falls in love with a young man in 1920s Montana in his new movie “The Power of the Dog.” The Oscar-nominated actor plays Phil Burbank, a hypermasculine rancher who inspires fear in awe in those around him—a reign of terror that comes from a deeply closeted sexuality. His made-up persona runs into some trouble after his brother (Jesse Plemons) brings home a new wife (Kirsten Dunst) and her queer son (Kodi Smit-McPhee). Phil torments them until he finds himself exposed to the possibility of love.
