My guess is that more and more teens will move away from the church.

Won't matter. This court has a case next week that might strip all federal agencies of rulemaking, which would include Dep Ed rules about funding and teaching religious doctrine in public schools.

Just keep in mind, these people are admittedly, openly falangists. They intend to enforce a Christian maximalism using state power.

Seventy percent of americans didn't want R v W overturned and yet it was the states who started this fiasco so it seems the states went against the will of the people. Next.
I don't care if one hundred percent didn't want it overturned. If it's against the Constitution, it needs to be overturned.

Of those 70% don't like it, they can change the Constitution.

Abortion was legal and widespread for the men who wrote the Constitution.

The constitution where all white men of privilege were created equal and the rest of us had no voice. Am I wrong?

Yes, and they still didn't criminalize abortion. Says something.

But in this issue it is the DEMOCRATS who strong oppose the individual states having power to decide abortion laws, not the REPUBLICANs.
This was a codified national right less than 36 hours ago.

Does it bother you being so utterly wrong - on both accounts?

smh

So for instance, when conservatives opposed women’s suffrage and interracial marriage were on the right side of history?

They passed their Fugitive Slave Act and the Conservatives said BS we are not going to abide by it. So the progressives started a war to get the changes they wanted. S

We are seeing the same things today. Progressives are threating Succession because they are opposed to the Supreme Court Ruling. Progressives only want their way or the highway.

I notice you didn’t attempt to confirm one single progressive belief that the Confederates had. Thanks you admitting you are lying.

Arguing about who were the "conservatives" versus the "progressives" in the 1860s is like talking arguing about which nations were socialist versus capitalist during the Middle Ages. It makes little sense because these did not exist as coherent ideologies, much less political movements at the time.

Conservatism most definitely did exist at the time. And the Confederates were conservatives.

Good Lord, enough of the drama, already!!! Abortion rights were simply handed back to the States where they were, back closer to the people to decide. The real fascists are the ones accusing others of being fascists, just like they do with racism, or insurrectionists, etc......they always accuse others of the things they actually are.....stunning to see.

With respect:

"Drama"?! Christofascist, stop pretending like Republicans haven't been making it harder and harder for women and girls to make their own reproductive decisions. It's almost like you aren't aware that Republican scumbags stole supremacist court seats and installed Federalist Society injustices who just overturned Roe. That's so they can outlaw abortion in Christofascist states, at the minimum. And you're also acting like January T**** trying to overturn the election is fascistic. What's stunning is how some otherwise normal people are following fascists.

Also, most people don't seem to know that Republicans stole the 2016 election.

Not sure where this came from but true it is.. >>
.
For decades, conservative White evangelicals have championed a rugged, even ruthless "warrior" masculinity. Believing that "gender difference" was the foundation of a God-given social order, evangelicals taught that women and men were opposites. God filled men with testosterone so that they could fulfill their God-ordained role as leaders, as protectors and providers. Testosterone made them aggressive, and it gave them a God-given sex drive. Men needed to channel their aggression, and their sex drives, in ways that strengthened both family and nation.

Generations of evangelicals consumed millions of books and listened to countless sermons expounding these "truths." Within this framework, there was ready forgiveness for male sexual misconduct. It was up to women to avoid tempting men who were not their husbands and meet the sexual needs of men who were. When men went astray, there was always a woman to blame. For men, misdeeds could be written off as too much of a good thing or perhaps a necessary evil, as evidence of red-blooded masculinity that needed only to be channeled in redemptive directions."
-----
Basically evangelicals use the King David excuse on Trump, Herschel Walker etc --In the bible, King David sent Bathsheba's husband to his death, so he could have her as his own. But because King David, a warrior king, was doing God's will politically and militarily all was forgiven.
Extremely well written.

Women hold all the cards in the game of sex. We all know this. In a male dominant society, this power must be quashed. God got us started with Eve's Original Sin. "Holy shit, Adam. We're naked!" And God is male, so...

Men, women, sex. That's all this is about. I think I'll look to nature, science.


Conclusion: sexually aggressive (violent) male chimpanzees sire more offspring than less violent counterparts.

This would seem to correlate to the 'rape and pillage' behavior of humans. We are closely related to chimps.

We are also closely related to bonobos.


Bonobos: they’re just like us.

Researchers studying the sex habits of bonobos say sexual activity plays a crucial role in the social society of the primates.

Bonobo society is a bit more peaceful than that of their cousins, the chimpanzee, but, like in any group that lives closely together, conflicts do arise. When it does, bonobos use sex to diffuse the tension, according to research led by Zanna Clay and Frans de Waal at Emory University.


(Saying female bonobos in heat are very receptive is an understatement of enormous proportion.)

To a female chimp, sex is a conflict. To a female bonobo, sex resolves conflicts.

We are both. There's your yin and yang, 'scientifically' demonstrated, about the only issue left when you boil humanity down to its essence: sex.

Yes it was. The point remains; it is the Republicans who, in this instance are FOR states rights.

(As i have said I am strongly in favour of choice.)

No just anti-black and racist.
Nope. Not that, either.

You got any more nonsense you want to toss against the wall?

Every Man His Own Doctor: The Poor Planter's Physician, B. Franklin, 1734

"[The book] starts to prescribe basically all of the best-known herbal abortifacients and contraceptives that were circulating at the time," Farrell said. "It's just sort of a greatest hits of what 18th-century herbalists would have given a woman who wanted to end a pregnancy early."

"It's very explicit, very detailed, [and] also very accurate for the time in terms of what was known ... for how to end a pregnancy pretty early on."


The rise in Christian political power did not occur until well into the 19th century.

Sorry you don’t like the truth. We know your allergic to the truth as you still spout trumps big lie as well. What is it about trump supporters that causes them to be so dishonest and scumbags?
