NEW YORK -- In response to the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, the 1973 ruling that enshrined to the right to abortion in the United States, Mayor Eric Adams spoke about how abortion prevented his life from being derailed when he and his girlfriend accidentally got pregnant when he was 15 years old. During a press conference in front of City Hall on Friday, the mayor described his experience, called for Democrats to expand the Supreme Court and pledged New York City would provide aboritons for those who don’t have access traveling from out of state.


I guess getting a girl pregnant a age 15, then aborting it, is a badge of honor in NY City.

It's bewildering how infrequently birth control is mentioned in the news. Watching those shrieking Ultra-Karens yesterday in front of the Supreme Court, you'd think there's no such thing as birth control. Brings to mind the Georgetown U. student of years ago crying about the difficulties of acquiring birth control pills, until it was quickly disclosed they were available within a few blocks of the campus (M. Street, NW) at the cost of $9.00 for a month's supply.

Typical of the community, don’t want any responsibility. The misnamed their flagship. It should have been Unplanned Parenthood. Yeah cmon in, we’ll fix your mistake this time (keeping the baby parts to sell to our labs) and then give you birth control for free all at taxpayer expense.

HE didn’t get pregnant, SHE did. And if he knocked up a 15-year-old girl, he committed statutory rape. He should never have been a police officer. Eric Adams is a phony and a flake.

Abortion kills a living human being, and is thus wrong. People on both sides of this issue seem not to realize that all of the emotional stories that tear at heart strings do nothing to change that fact. Abortion is murder.

Very typical of him. A lot of guys won't use a condom, it'll diminish the pleasure. And the girls are sometimes ignorant to smooth talkers. Yeah and you know she had better get an abortion if she knows what good for her. How many times have you read in the news about a boyfriend murdering his pregnant girlfriend or beating a child to death?

If you look at this as a spiritual thing, the killing of an unborn... a blood sacrifice... has to kill a piece of your soul no matter how much you justify your action. I would think once that is done other cold and cruel acts become easier.

The entertainment industry has gradually, since the late 1960's, shown sex as something couples engage in the moment they meet and feel a powerful attraction to one another. Heck, now they have sex and then go out to dinner. Most of us watch these programs and don't protest or boycott them so we contribute to the idea that sexual gratification is our due regardless of the consequences. Is the word "chastity" ever heard anymore? Do our young even know what it means?

Adams’ girlfriend made the decision to have an abortion after he was arrested at 15. “She said ‘Eric, you’re arrested, you’re not going to school, what future is this baby going to have,’” Adams recalled. “She made the decision that was smart for both of us, she made the right call because she was empowered, she was in control.”

#39, I rad your comment and it popped into my head..... I remember, years ago, reading a news article.... Back when the HornDog was governor in Arkansas, the woman he selected as (either 'education' or 'health' department head) contracted for the agency she ran to buy condoms for free distribution to the students in the high schools statewide. I do not recall the brand or supplier's name being mentioned, but apparently some tests were conducted on a sample of the condoms supplied, and the test results showed that a large percentage of the ones tested were defective....leaked. The woman (HornDog's appointee) then HID the results and continued the distribution of the defective condoms to the high school students throughout the state. That was the end of the story. No mention of the number of unwanted pregnancies that resulted.

ATLANTA, Ga. - Democratic candidates endorsed by gubernatorial hopeful Stacey Abrams won their runoffs on Tuesday, while two of former President Donald Trump’s preferred contenders lost their congressional GOP bids. Abrams now has a unified ticket of down-ballot candidates to support her bid to unseat incumbent GOP Gov. Brian Kemp on Nov. 8. Here are the results of the Democratic statewide runoffs: Lieutenant governor’s runoff Attorney Charlie Bailey defeated former congressman and Atlanta city councilor Kwanza Hall, setting up a race against GOP nominee Burt Jones this fall. Jones, who has Trump’s endorsement, won a crowded GOP primary last month.
