I agree. We should do everything in our power to keep children from being born into bad situations by making contraception more readily available. I just don't believe it's right for a life to be taken because of someone's irresponsibility. Things like rape and life-threatening situations are extreme cases which it should be taken into account. And although teaching the younger generation about moral decisions won't eliminate the problem, it is one of the many things that can be done to help even the slightest. There are more steps that can be taken, but that's up for debate.
I'm not sure how much Obama advocates abortion and for what situations. I don't support abortion except for extreme cases as I've said. But his decision to open up the door for more contraceptives would help reduce abortions and foster children, and I believe that's a good decision for everyone.
I believe birth control should be a readily available option to prevent unwanted pregnancies; same with condoms, spermicide, etc. This is just something that should be obvious because no matter how much you expect people to be responsible, it's ultimately their decision.
However there is a serious problem with the younger generation and the idea that sex is just an itch waiting to be scratched. Responsibility begins at conception. Abortion for when someone is raped or the child threatens the mother's life is understandable, but when the person in question is just irresponsible it should not be an option. The media is partially to blame. The younger generation should be better taught and informed about meaningful relationships in order to avoid bad decisions.
Sure I'm Republican. I'm also the fairy queen of Narnia. You must be a desperate troll picking a fight with someone who plainly stated that they're tired of the war between parties. But whatever. Believe whatever helps you sleep at night, hun <3.
I already said that I don't vote. I don't hate people who are different than me, but obviously you do. I hope you're not trying to represent Democrats by saying that everyone who doesn't agree with you is wrong and should be called out for it then that's a pretty arrogant and selfish view. It reminds me of someone else's view who was particularly active in the 1940's.
I'm not saying anyone is right or wrong I'm trying to be neutral here. All I'm saying is that I don't find the need for someone like Clay Benett or Mallard Filmore to chuck rocks at each other's party in a childish 'your dumb' type of manner. I actually have seen Conservative and Patriot1's posts and I don't agree with most of them. Are you trying to say that I have a wrong view for remaining neutral and not automatically siding with a party?
If it had no bearing, why would you ask?
I don't have much of an opinion of her since I don't know a lot about her.
Are you asking if all blondes are dumb? No..
..What bearing does that question have?
If you're asking are some blonde people dumb, then saying something is dumb or intelligent is completely subjective.
I'm not a Republican. I actually lean more toward Democrats then I do Republicans, but I never registered to vote because I don't like either. And I don't like either because they have their pros and cons as does anything, but instead of having completely opposite white and back views about things they should compromise instead of fighting with eachother and find common ground within a gray area.
I guess you're right on that. I've only looked at Clay Benett's stuff on the newspaper for about a year now, he might have done better. Some of his stuff does point out obvious flaws and issues that Republicans botch, but for most of the cartoons I've seen it just seems to emanate hate in a way that comes across as 'I'm red, you're blue' type of deal.
I'm not really sure how Clay Benett won an award.. I've seen his cartoons for a while and it's mostly 'democrats good, republicans bad'. I guess I might be missing the point of a political cartoon? It seems to me that his cartoons lack creativity. I don't like either party, but there are issues out there that he could be expressing. Like, there are more than just two parties despite what is often expressed in politics, and there are issues within both major parties to which cause conflict with their members. Like I said, I might be missing the point here but it seems he has a serious vendetta against everything republican.
