  1. What's new in this club
  2. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/ocasio-cortez-growing-cauliflower-colonial “What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It’s so important,” she said as she filmed a community garden in the Bronx. “So that’s really how you do it right. That is such a core component of the Green New Deal is having all of these projects make sense in a cultural context, and it’s an area that we get the most pushback on because people say, ‘Why do you need to do that? That’s too hard.’” She went on to add that growing cauliflower in such gardens is a “colonial approach” and the reason communities of color oppose environmentalist movements. “But when you really think about it -- when someone says that it’s ‘too hard’ to do a green space that grows Yucca instead of, I don’t know, cauliflower or something -- what you’re doing is you’re taking a colonial approach to environmentalism,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “That is why a lot of communities of color get resistant to certain environmentalist movements because they come with the colonial lens on them.” So, OK......Racism in community gardening.......I mean, after her statement, the conversation gets even more blubbering.......You can't make this up.......
  3. https://www.indystar.com/story/news/2019/05/22/lunch-shaming-indiana-cold-sandwich-greenwood/3765217002/ A sensible and reasonable policy by the Greenwood government schools. Yet a child's "feelings" and the parent/guardian's desire to get something for free trump personal responsibility. Sorry, the government school administrators should have stood behind their policy.
  4. Good to know that we are on the same page when it comes to the myriad of state laws designed to restrict access.
  5. Found this item of interest in reduction ... Want to Limit the Number of Abortions? Make Men Pay Child Support. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/want-limit-number-abortions-men-215224363.html
  6. So a law requiring women contemplating an abortion to visit a "crisis pregnancy center" or equivalent facility before they schedule an appointment with an abortion clinic?
  7. I'd use the word "reduction" instead of "restriction": 1. Personal interaction with and support of women who may be contemplating an abortion to see if they may have interest in some alternative course of action that is viable for them. 2. Prayer.
  8. So what abortion restriction tactics do you personally approve of and support?
  9. It's not a question of post-Roe ... with some of the actions of some of the states, for example, Texas, that's a reality that's already here. https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2014/06/the-rise-of-the-diy-abortion-in-texas/373240/ https://www.guttmacher.org/gpr/2014/03/state-sexual-and-reproductive-health-and-rights-state-texas-cautionary-tale
  10. No. No, from a legal perspective. From a moral perspective, I can't say for sure. It seems very unlikely to me, but is not inconceivable that there could be some doctors with psychopathic personalities traits, who willingly perform "on demand" abortions when they personally consider the fetus a human life. I don't normally go around judging people's action from the premise that they are a psychopath, however.
  11. A Post-Roe World Would Pave the Way for a New Black Market in Abortion Pills: https://reason.com/2018/06/28/post-roe-abortion-market/ The War on Drugs has been a colossal failure, and so would a War on Abortion Drugs. But in a possible post-Roe America what is safer, the drugs or the "back alley coat hanger"?
  12. Trump disputes Alabama abortion bill.....said he has already paid for 'em. There was collusion all over the place, but collusion isn't a crime.
  13. Wow, to think my sister-in-law or the medical professional would have been jailed 20 years ago if this law were then in effect. Such evil.
  14. So you support the tactic of restricting access to an abortion by criminalizing the medical procedure? Do you believe medical professionals who currently perform abortion procedures are murderers?
  15. Appears that neither of Indiana's overturned abortion-related laws was taken up for action by the Supreme Court yesterday. https://www.yahoo.com/news/u-supreme-court-takes-no-action-indiana-abortion-154955308.html FTA: The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday took no action on appeals seeking to revive two restrictive Republican-backed abortion laws from Indiana, even as debate rages over a new measure in Alabama that would prohibit the procedure almost entirely. Neither Indiana case was on the list of appeals on which the court acted on Monday morning. The court could next announce whether or not it will hear the cases on May 28. If the nine-justice court takes up either case, it would give the conservative majority an opportunity to chip away at the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade ruling that legalized abortion nationwide and recognized a right under the U.S. Constitution for women to terminate pregnancies. One of the Indiana laws requires fetal remains to be buried or cremated and bans abortions performed because of fetal disability or the sex or race of the fetus. The other law requires women to undergo an ultrasound examination at least 18 hours before they undergo an abortion. Both Indiana measures were signed into law in 2016 by Vice President Mike Pence when he was Indiana's governor and were struck down by federal judges the following year. The state of Indiana is appealing to the Supreme Court.
  16. I voted for Mourdock in the primary largely because I thought he was easier to defeat than Lugar.
  17. About time that someone made the point that legality and morality are not the same thing. The legal availability of abortion is not the same thing as compelling people to undergo them. You can personally believe that abortion is wrong without attempting to impose your belief system upon others.
  18. I didn't say, or mean to imply that you support criminal punishment for woman. I don't, either. But that seems like a red herring to interject -- as far as I am aware, none of these new laws criminally punish the woman. They punish the doctor or other person who performs the abortion. It was simply interesting to me that you switched from talking about this issue as a statement of principle -- a woman control her own body -- to talking about what you are or are not a "proponent of."
