    Yeah, you're right. Lousy job interfering with my USCHO time.

    I hate when that happens.

    I'd be interested to see if paying 50x as much gives us anywhere close to 50x better results.

That's not realistic.
    It sounds like you are saying that our current method of Child Protective Services isn't working. Maybe we should move some of that burden away from the government over to charities that would be delighted to care for those children? Have Child Protective Services do triage, and the courts to make the decisions, and then use a process that actually would succeed in keeping those children safe?


    There is a series of articles underway right now in The NY Post describing how many times NY City protective services have failed to rescue children from abusive environments, after multiple warnings, and then those children were killed. Some people might argue that those children would have been better off had they not been born; others might argue that they should have been removed from those abusive households far earlier; a few on the fringe even try to argue that women who abuse their children should be sterilized, an idea I find totally repulsive (yet it still needs to be rebutted).


    How is partial-birth abortion anything other than child abuse?

    That's one hell of a pivot.

    Two videos - don't worry, neither of them show an abortion or the results of one.

    Consider the source. I also see videos under that account with very sensational titles, such as, "Planned Parenthood Aids Pimp's Underage Sex Ring"

    While the videos are well produced, they are clearly propaganda and thus are unconvincing. I've always taken you as smarter than to buy into something like that.

    Not to mention, if you are buying into the math of the first video, you are minimizing the importance of the wide range of other women's health care options provided, which, I would think, is insulting to most women.

    Abortion at the top of the Federal agenda now that Republicans are back in power.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/26/u...smtyp=cur&_r=0

    Never ceases to amaze. It's not what gets them elected but it's what they'll spend all their time on.

    I disagree. We're it not for a clear stance on abortion they'd win far less often.

    It gets them their ~40% perhaps. The number one thing that gets the elected though is the stupidity of the liberal base.

    Re: The "I Can't Believe There's No Abortion Thread" Abortion Thread

    From the video's claims:

    323,999 abortions is 3% of services.
    887 per day
    37 per hour
    1 per 97 seconds
    That tells me they are using a calendar year (365 days), not a "business" year (52 5-day weeks, 260 days) in their claims calculations. (323999/887 = ~365)
    Math says they're also using a 24 hour day, not a work day. (It is left to the reader ... )

    OK, that means 1,0799,966 services (323999/0.03).

    Using the 365 days, that's 29589 services per day.
    Wikipedia says they have "more than 700 centers in the US".
    Using 700, each center (on average) does 42 services per day.

    My observation is that those had better be high dollar services because cause at just 42 services per day (administering a pregnancy or STD tests, those aren't "high dollar", profitable services) you're not going to keep the doors of a staffed clinic open very long.

    If it were some other business like an oil change place (sorry, terrible, but I need some analogy) that's not a high dollar (profitable) service so that's why they are up-selling air filters and transmission flushes and tires to you all the time.

    So what high profit service does Planned Parenthood offer that might be something they'd try to up-sell?
