Grueling Day

Today was a very interesting day. After attending my classes, I went for a jolly ride through the Avenues on my bicycle. Then it was of to protesting a bunch of far-right rural and Utah County legislators who want to waste the money they couldn’t spend on the U to bring abortion out of the health clinic and into the alley.

Though I am morally opposed to abortion, I think banning it would do nothing to stop the problem. Abortion is best controlled by comprehensive sex education, which the self-proclaimed “pro-lifers” are against, along with anything that will benefit fetuses after their birth. That is why we need to work to elect moderate Republicans and Democrats to the legislature. We can’t let the old men of the Utah Senate override gubernatorial vetoes again to push something NOBODY in the great and glorious state wants. They did it last fall with vouchers, and unless we break their supermajority, they will do it again with this. I urge you all to vote to see that your tax dollars are used responsibly and rationally, not emotionally. Look at all the good electing Democrats has done for Montana.

Later, I went to Temple Square and had a jolly stroll through the flowers.

    No intelligent person believes that abortion is a good thing, but banning it outright would have more negative consequences than positive. Instead we should be working towards the point where nobody ever has to get an abortion for non-medical reasons.

    Abstinence-only doesn’t work; the abstinent remain abstinent, but the promiscuous keep bangin’. I came out of my seventh grade sex ed class not exactly sure what this ‘sex’ thing actually WAS. Clearly, something went wrong here.

    A half-truth is a whole lie; but truth is the most powerful positive force on the planet.

    addendum:

    while radicals == 1
    print truth
    print rationality
    print freely
