    It's Atlanta Blazer Man. He used to live in Atlanta, a very cool city where I was born.

    Officially and as defined by the Supreme Court and by the Medical profession that's not science.

    You may want to re-phrase that. I have no idea what you are trying to say.

    In the Book I read/follow, it's called conception.

    Pregnant women who can't handle giving birth to a fetus for one reason or another.

    Look, I understand your concern but you have to give ground to the vast majority of the country. Your efforts are counterproductive.

    I'd shift my effort from preventing abortions altogether to helping mothers and their children who have big problems. Now, there's something productive.

    Yes...and tender and wise counseling way upstream to educate these girls regarding the potential physical, emotional, social, spiritual, etc. dangers/problems that having an abortion can bring.

    I've already said that many times in here.

    It’s ok to have that opinion, but in a functioning society we can’t make laws based on what books certain people like to read. Obviously the right answer is laying somewhere in the gray area, but neither hardcore religious people or hardcore liberals are able to see the color gray. It’s gotta be either “throw lady in jail because she got raped and wants an abortion” or “women should be able to abort a 9 month old fetus”

    Radicals on either side control the argument and rational people get drowned out.

    I was scheduled to get a reduction next week due to a large volume of complaints. Also canceled.

    The same could be said about girls being forced to having an unwanted child.

    I hear all that, and understood, but the Tennessee Governor's recent decision surrounding all this was/is the right one, IMO.

    Whoever you hired to do that should be in charge of curing the virus. If he can fix you he can fix anything.

    I'm pro choice. Republicans are brain-dead on this issue.

    He's not a single issue voter. He's lying about that.

    You can entirely have that opinion...and I'm not attempting to change it. I'm simply relating my own. Stuff like that happens around here.

    It’s just seems like grandstanding to me. Plenty of abortions are non-essential and I think hospitals around the country will make that decision where they see fit without the help of a Tennessee governor.

    You'd be right if they really cared about it.

    They just have to take the opposite position to make sure the country is perfectly divided.
