"Their idea of reducing unintended pregnancies is more sex education and distribution of contraceptives. ... That's not the solution, that's part of the problem.
"If they want to start promoting abstinence, fine — but they won't."


Dear Tony Perkins (and others in the Family Research Council),
To the men among you, I hope you have daughters. I hope you have daughters and sisters and nieces and female cousins who you love very much and are very close to.
And I hope they get pregnant because of what you teach - or, more accurately, don't teach. And are forced to keep it by family and church who scream hellfire and damnation and murder of innocents.
And I hope it ruins all of your lives. I hope the difficult, costly, time-consuming business of raising and caring for a child destroys their dreams and your dreams for them, because they weren't ready for it yet.
And I hope their children grow up knowing that if their mother had been able to wait maybe even just a few years to have kids, or had been able to avoid having so many, life would have been so much better.
I have to hope for these horrible things, because you cannot get pregnant. But if you could, I would wish upon you what I wish upon your wives, your sisters, your daughters - unwanted pregnancy after unwanted pregnancy. Dangerous, difficult pregnancies, producing children you can not afford to feed or care for.
The only problem then is that I would not for the world willingly give you a child to mold in ignorance and fear.

Also, an interesting article about the experiences of physicians and abortion clinic staff in helping anti-choice women who decide to have abortions.
