The House passed a bill today that makes it illegal for adults to take minors across state lines to get an abortion. This is good news. Finally the Republicans are doing something right. I would encourage you to read the article linked here to see the opposition's arguments. They're actually almost comical, saying that this bill will be dangerous for some girls. Possibly the funniest part of the bill was that the opposition was trying to get an amendment passed so that grandparents and members of the clergy could take young girls across state lines for an abortion. Can you imagine?!?! Grandma taking little so-and-so for her first abortion?!? Or Father Michael taking her?!? Agh! When would that be a possibility? This world can be a very backward and strange place.

All aboard "Father Michael's first-trimester don't-ask-don't-tell-Mom bus tour and prayer retreat."
"No pushing and shoving girls, there's plenty of room."
"Now let us all bow our heads and pray for safe delivery, er, arrival that is, for all of us, er, those of us that've been born and baptised that is, to Connecticut's famous, yet discreet, medical facilities. Amen."

(Yeah, I'm pretty sure that should be illegal.)

LOL. I couldn't have said it better myself! Sick thought, huh?

Oh, btw, I'm sorry I've been slacking on adding you to my blogroll. I'll get that taken care of right now. Thanks for commenting!

How do you want me to list you?

Sick thought indeed!
"Captoe" is just fine, that was very kind of you! Naming your blog "Collected notes..." is alot like naming your dog "Dog", it is accurate, just not very helpful.

A picture of the dog named "Dog":
He wasn't my dog, just a good one.
