This is progress. No government authority, or branch of government, should dictate to a privateRead Moreente rprise, if it is a moral issue. Even a store chain, if it is not a government-run agency, need not be subject to this sort of bullying by the judicial branch. The enhancement drugs are not the same as any form of birth control pharmaceuticals, nor do they foster the same purposes. Also, medical merry-u-wanna should be off the list. It is simply and excuse to the players to have more playing time on our nickel. It's high time that the progressive-repulsive got a little kick in the shins. You want this stuff, you pay for it. Sorry, but one person's opinion.

George: Please advise where Patch defended you? I see nothing from them in print. I'd like to beRead Moresho wn what they said. With the world as overpopulated as it is, perhaps helping control too many births might be a significant resolution to world wide problems. Think on it; you and I may not be around to see it but perhaps our kids and grandkids might like to be able to have better lives with less "unwanted" kids around. Check out the recent stories of parents abusing and killing their kids and babies. Perhaps if someone gave them some birth control these tragedies we are now seeing on almost a daily basis would not occur!

Hi LADY J - You do have some legitimate points there. They didn't defend me - I was beingRead Morefacetious. Someone was upset with my postings and swept them away as though done with a dragon's tail! Oh well, what can we do? I believe that contraception should be addressed by medical professionals, exclusively. Irresponsible women should have their tubes tied. I cannot, and will not, condone any abortion. This is not a right; it is a social illness, as well as a spiritual one. I don't even favor pre-conception contraception; however, I do not condemn it either. Now human life - in any capacity - should be compromised. Again, just one man's opinion.

George: Sorry, I didn't realize you were being facetious. That dragon's tail has also attacked some Read Moreof my comments so you are not alone. Sadly, I disagree with how you feel, but, I stand by your right to your own opinions. Yes, abortion is partly a spiritual decision and it is not an easy one to make. However, unlike you, I don't feel it is a "social illness". Women have a right to decide what to do with their lives and bodies in their own life circumstances; church and state should not interfere in what might have to be done for one's own well being.

I suppose you could, in a stretch, call it a lie that a shooting occurs "once a week". IRead Morew ould prefer to refer to it as an exaggeration to make a point. Many of us believe that a point needs to be made. Would you have been happier if he said "once every 3.2 months"?

When government increased the legal drinking age to 21, they unwittingly drove our teens towardsRead Moreill egal drugs. Since the legal drinking age was increased __ illegal drug use and the usage of dangers home cleaning chemicals has skyrocketed across the country. Lowering the legal drinking age back to age 18 is the best way to lower illegal drug usage, and the costly crimes and treatment costs associated with illegal drugs.
