A message to
Planned Parenthoodwomen’s rights supporters from President Obama.
It’s actually sad these things still need to be said in a “civilized” country like the US.
Most of these Republican candidates are as bad as the dictators in the Middle East. Obviously, religious fundamentalism isn’t just a problem in Islamic countries.
And it scares the crap out of me that actually a lot of Americans blindly support these religious fundamentalists, and want one of them to be their next president. I’m a Catholic myself, but I’m convinced that blending politics and religion is the root of a lot of evil in this world.wow , no body could have said it better , you know that alot of things that I’ve heard Rick Santrom say , I’ve heard in Iran also , like you can’t have an abortion here , is this what you want your country to be like ? or the punishment for pre-marital sex for a girl is execution , and you just never even mention homosexuality , it does not exist , this is exactly the world that Rick Santrom paints and I hate to tell you , I’m living in it and it’s hell . you bring religion into your laws and eventually it will influence everything . you may not see it in a year or two but 30 years have past , and I’m seeing it now , and believe me it is not pretty .
I was recently asked to contribute to a book of scientists’ and writers’ answers to little kids’ questions about life – this is my answer to 9-year-old Ottilie’s question about why we have books. Read more of the questions and answers, including contributions from Sir David Attenborough, Brian Cox, Noam Chomsky, Mary Roach, and Paul McCartney, here.
