I guess "I" missed your outrage over the planned choo-choo train from Milwaukee to Madison, Mark.

Don't worry, you can talk about your love for it, the "religion" of public transport has not yet been banned "from" the public "square".

"why" are you "placing" words in "quotes" like that?

Honestly, what's more barbaric: the fact that the girl paid a man $150 to bring about a miscairage, or the fact that she couldn't have an abortion and felt this was her only option?

Doesn't anyone see what a law like this will do? I'm frightened that there was little debate over this. With this kind of mind set in power, the idea of criminalizing a refusal to conceive doesn't seem so distant or impossible.

as someone who has lived in Utah with someone who had a miscarriage,
i say we hang or sterilize any women who tries to beat the shit out of a fetus that is sill in her body.
more power to Utah justice,love it or leave it.

this is a state in the union that calls it's own shots and always will, but at least they have principles, and red rock canyons.

Because Kevin does.

for the record, i was being sarcastic, too. (about some of it.)

i fear that just by mentioning it I will find it banned at the library,
but cf. The Handmaids Tale by Atwood.
