06:21 pm: License Plates
Yesterday I saw a Virginia license plate that was VGNA LVR and our motto is "Virginia is For Lovers," but that wasn't what I thought when I first saw the plate.

In Virginia and Maryland, NARAL and similar groups are investigating so-called "Crisis Pregnancy Clnics." Many of them lie about what happens when you use a condom or have an abortion. Maryland has required them to change their names to something that doesn't sound so medical and helpful. Virginia has a "Choose Life" license plate and some of the money goes to an organization that gives it to these kinds of centers. NARAL has been checking up on the centers, and a lot of them don't exist or are still lying with old brochures or testifying: "...center counselors told women that the risk of suicide and cancer increases after abortion. In one video shown to a volunteer, a woman told of her abortion and how she eventually became a "crack whore in prison." When asked if that could happen, a counselor at the unnamed facility said, "It's a possibility,""

I'd like fewer abortions, but I'd like that to happen via stopping conception. Once you have the embryo, the woman should get to choose.

My PeaPod order is due to be delivered soon, which is good because the sleet is supposed to start soon. It's not forecast to be a big deal except for commuting in the morning and school in the outer counties.

Miss Girl is still using the secluded litterbox. She keeps this up and I'll buy her a little bed to replace the towel.

I had no idea anything like those 'Crisis Pregnancy Clinics' or their disinformational brochures existed. I haven't heard of anything like them in this area - not to say they aren't around.

The fake "help" for pregnant girls really makes my blood boil.

Yeah, it's possible that somebody who has an abortion will end up a "crack whore in prison" later. Also that someone who doesn't will. Unfortunate either way, but there you go.

And there's tons of those "centers" in Virginia but only one place that does abortions (other than emergency for the mothers, and some hospitals will do those).

VGNA LVR

HA! It took me a minute to get it, though, I was so stuck on "Virginia is for lovers."

Hear, hear...

As for myself, I'll be a good boy and refrain from suggesting what I think you thought when you saw that plate.

I'm with you on the approach to abortions. Education, and I mean real education would be a good thing. But, after that, nobody should make decisions about your body.
Good news on Spirit.
Oh, BTW, it took a while for the penny to drop before I got the VGNA LVR and how can we all be sure it isn't NOT Virginia?

Oh, we can't. It was just my mind that grasped the other first. I was behind the car in traffic and I didn't think pulling up beside and asking was a good idea.
