When I first heard of Roe v. Wade, it was during a conversation between two girls in my high school. When one girl said abortion should not be legal, the other replied: "But what about rape and incest?!" The teen's comment was the common propaganda in the years following the Roe v. Wade decision. The general idea was it would take someone who was cold-blooded and heartless to expect a victim of rape or incest to carry the "results" to term.
It boggles the mind that anyone would attempt to make this argument, but Shell is actually trying to claim that it is legally immune from being sued for the crime of genocide. Why does it feel the need to make that claim?
Newt Gingrich is leading a healthcare plan that provides more freedom to individuals and reorganizes current healthcare practices.

Do you think that you eat healthy? You may want to think again, even seemingly “healthy food” can and commonly does have Excitotoxins in it. Surprisingly to many, even seemingly healthy food sold at “health Food Stores” can have Excitotoxins.
A lot times when people start to think about farming, beautiful huge farms come to mind. These thoughts are admirable, though they can destroy a farm and any would be farmer when they are sought out. It’s more important and productive to evaluate which farm size works on an individual basis.
What is your view on the use of medical marijuana? I have recently read an article in Rolling Stone magazine discussing Obama’s look at Medical marijuana. It seems like the topic of medical marijuana can create extreme disagreements, some people are pro medical marijuana whereas others see it as criminal. Occasionally, you’ll find people like me that are in the middle.
New voting laws that appear to target minority voters have drawn the attention of the most prominent present-day civil rights leader: Reverend Al Sharpton. Sharpton has joined forces with the son of the civil rights icon Martin Luther King to embark on a five day protest of voting laws which are thought by many to undermine the civil rights fought for and won by American black people in the 1960s.
The protest will take the form of a march from Selma, Alabama, to Montgomery, Alabama. The intention is to draw attention to what Sharpton and King consider to be a violation of minority voting rights. According the Sharpton, as many as five million Americans who were able to vote in 2008 will be prevented from exercising that right in the November elections.
After presenting a giant check made out to the super PAC on stage, Maher explained the reasoning behind his donation, citing Republican initiatives such as mandatory vaginal ultrasounds and elimination of capital gains taxes as reasons why Americans should rally behind the President. He expressed concern that many of Obama's wealthy Hollywood donors assume he already has the contest wrapped up, and underestimate the influence of the money pouring into pro-Republican super PACs.
The answer is that he shouldn't. And yet a federal judge has ruled that the state of Washington can't force pharmacists to sell plan B to women who request it. If they don't want to, they don't have to, and that's the end of that.
Bachmann released a statement in which she accepted Pawlenty's endorsement and pledged to work with him to "make Minnesota red in 2012."
This week we saw the release of the data from the Department of Labor indicating strong job growth in the US throughout the month of January. The unemployment rate fell to 8.3 percent and the country saw the largest one month increase in jobs at 243,000 added in the last nine months. That plus the last time the unemployment rate was this low was in February of 2008. IS all of this bad for Republicans running against Obama, then?
