[QUOTE=etsryan;990334]then whose is it?  and why are you posting someone else's instead of your own?  OR if it isn't  your opinion, then WHAT is it?


It's NOT my opinion. That's what it is NOT.

Or to not have my kids given condoms or bc/oc or an abortion without my knowledge??  ...


If they knew they could trust you, you would know. Besides, were is it written that you have the right to force your kids to do anything?

A kind word turns away wrath....


Then that's what you should try.

Darn tootin' it is.  How about that... 


an opinion based on emotion isn't worth much.

I better go to God...


Good luck.

ets i don't know where MM got his figure from although it is one of those 'common knowledge' stats that most folks invovled in human rights issues was aware of.

but i can say that infant mortality WORLD WIDE not just in the developing world is quite distressing. And frequent. Note in all the stats the figures are for born children.

http://www.unicef.org/sowc08/docs/sowc08.pdf

http://www.who.int/healthinfo/statistic … index.html

http://jpubhealth.oxfordjournals.org/cg … t/fdm009v1

imho morality would suggest that if improving social weflare, opportunites etc for the born improves not only born adults but also born childrens lives then it is also improving unborn lives and life opportunties .... we know this ot be true from previously shared WHO sources about abortion rates in germany, belgium and the netherlands .... imho those seeking to further restrict abortiosn are missing the path to a solution where EVERYONE invovled born and unborn alike are respected. imho.
