Does having children

give you better insight about DU and duers? Or perhaps that's backward, does having been DU admin for so many years give you help in dealing with your children?

I think you have a couple, forgive my aging memory if I am wrong.

Happy holidays to you and yours.

"Anti-choice", because words matter

I am pro-choice, for keeping abortions safe and legal. Those supporting the terrorism and murder of 3 people are in no way "pro-life". If you are happy about murders you are by definition NOT pro-life.

What they are is anti-choice.

They do not think women should have the choice of a legal, medical abortion. They are against that choice, anti-choice.

I am pro-life in that I am against killing those I disagree with, against the death penalty, against bombing random people.

Those protesting outside clinics are pro-death.

They are also anti-choice and IIIwill continue to call then that and explain why with these 2 questions.

Should women have the choice of legal, hygienic medical abortion?
Is it OK to kill people who are associated with clinics that provide abortions?

Late term abortions

If you wish to learn more about them, I highly recommend the documentary After Tiller. I believe it's on instant video also. Please watch it, learn more, please it on. I donated money and other support to the makers of this documentary, but think it very necessary and helpful in countering stupid claims and ignorant fears.

Beware media facts and assumptions while incidents in progress

Media will report things to keep viewers tuned in. Rumors multiply. Inaccuracies are reported as fact.

The PP shooting is still happening and please beware of believing pretty much anything at this point or making assumptions as the situation is fluid. Eventuality the facts wiki come out. Patience, please.

Thank you.

WILL there be a military draft?

I am NOTasking if you support one, instead what do you see happening in the next year or 2. I know there are too many variables to accurately predict, like who is the next president, but still, the concern persists in my mind.
