  1. Someone says:

    People want their children to be safe. Public schools don’t offer that anymore.

    “Abortion Is Central to Universal Health Care.”

    What a ridiculous thing to say. And presented along with a dishonest, language twisting argument, too – “universal” refers to who is covered, not to which procedures or conditions are. Personally, I think abortion should be virtually unrestricted. Further, I do think it should be covered by a national health plan, but if I had to choose between that and say dental care, which is often neglected by national healthcare systems, I’d vote for the teeth without hesitation. Or for doing away with deductibles and co-insurance. There are a lot of things more important than the pet liberal wedge issue, whether you happen to be pro or anti choice.
