    what!!... why?

    Sorry to other runners and riders on this thread for the off topic excursion but I'm concerned for the well being of Dogtowner! The reasons for the inability to consume a good ale at luchtime is more important!

    This story serves to illustrate what a heinous crime rape really is, making a woman make the most difficult decision of her life. Then, politicians like the one in the OP want to compound the pain by taking that decision away from her and giving it to the government.

    I appreciate the concern.
    The three martini lunch died somewhere in the 90s. But in the 80s or so when I was working for Coca Cola we had the mother of all expense account budgets and boy did we use it ! "Staff meetings" at lunch or after work ran up gaudy bar tabs. Travelling for ICI was outrageous as well.
    --sigh--

    Rape is heinous unless there is a better term to better capture heinous er.
    I see this as an understandable use of plan B pills.

    That's just it. I do know what it means to be a real Christian.
    And Pope Francis happens to agree with me.

    Evangelicals are merely pharisians, so despised by Christ.

    No, it is not, as it PREVENT or DELAY ovulations and prevents fertilisation of the egg.

    As I understand it, no. If you wait till after fertilization and implantation then yes but within a matter of hours, no.

    As I said, you would need to understand it.

    More specifically
    If taken within 72 hours (3 days) and preferably within 12 hours after a contraceptive accident or unprotected sex, it can prevent pregnancy by doing one of three things: Temporarily stops the release of an egg from the ovary. Prevents fertilization. Prevents a fertilized egg from attaching to the uterus.

    Maybe you need to understand Christianity. Obviously, you have bought into the Pharisiens (Evangelical Talibans) propaganda about "being a Christian!"

    So sad!
