I know PL are working to reduce abortion, limit abortion and end abortion.

We start young and inform them in middle and high school so they have better information when they get to that point. Also daycares in colleges would help too.

I'm proud to say that my alma mater created a Women with Children program years ago, and has had onsite daycare for even longer. Their program has been a model for other colleges. They re-fitted a dorm to accomodate single moms and their kids.

Universal Healthcare would not teach sexual responsiblity though.

Lots of private insurance won't pay for non-emergency abortions as the system exists. I don't see why a universal healthcare system would be any different. Elective procedure=private funds.

Why does it have to fall back on making fun of Christianity or Christians?

Actually, yes, if we'd recently had hundreds of posts insisting that our government should be run by Allah-fearing men and Muslim dogma of a specific nature

I think that what is insulting with the generalization insinuated on laughing over Christianity is that you lump us all in when you post no exclusion.

In the UK the NHS pays for elective abortion, and if they don't have the facilities to do an abortion in a particular town/city they refer the woman to a private clinic and it is still funded by the government.

Nobody is in uproar about paying for elective abortions and it's financially more viable than paying for pre-natal care, delivery and all the on going costs once that child is born.

There will always be something that the government spends their money on that people don't agree on whether it be childfree people being "forced" to pay for the education system,or money wasted on the Iraq war, the government can't be all things to all people.

Ummm...again, it was a tongue in cheek comment in specific relation to posts on this board.


If you don't get that, there's no other way I can think of to explain it.

Oh, I totally agree. I was just pointing out that if the US would adopt a Universal Health Care System, it wouldn't necessarily have to cover abortion.
