174. Perhaps.
And you know what, I do see why you might see things differently and that it's a complex issue wrought with passion on ALL sides. And if it's 100% about personal conviction, then have the guts to SAY that (not you, you just did).

More importantly, if the desire really is to reduce the number of abortions, then WHY, in God's name, WHY didn't Stupak include a TON of assurances that full access to contraception and full women's wellness and prevention programs be included? This is what I don't get. At all. Not even a little.

I started this thread yesterday after getting some knee-jerk "Not with *MY* money!!" responses and didn't really get many people really answering the question.

In this thread, it was directed at a poster who has dismissed women's health care issues, accused me of lying, and repeatedly not answered a rather direct question.

But, thanks for taking the time to answer... honestly. :)
