I finally found a reason abortion is good

I think overall the extrapolations are good. It's seriously funny that the sacrement of thr Democratic party is destroying the party.

The one flaw I see in the extrapolation is that they are assuming all abortions would cause one more human to be born. My guess is that some of the women who have multiple abortions, if forced to give birth would stop having children.

Lets say a woman has had 10 abortions, would she have carried 10 children to term? I doubt it. But overall I think it has serious ramifications for the Democrats. :-b

Can anyone explain to me why the WSJ, one of the most respected newspapers around would decide to publish their opinion page as it is? The WSJ opinion page is the National Enquirer of editorials. They twist and distort and the sad thing is that they're taken seriously- because of the high quality reporting in the rest of the paper.

England's Worcester Canoe Club set the world record for paddling a hand-propelled bathtub. The 25 man team covered a distance of 55 miles, 425 yards in 24 hours on September 28 and 29, 1979.

whats confusing about it?

I agree that having it in a major newspaper like the WSJ is pretty bad - at least its an editorial.

I think the numbers are pretty far off - but the underlying point remains.

I'm just curious, does someone want to say where the numbers are off? I am the only one who has pointed out a fallacy and I'm on the side that believes that overall this holds water and will be a problem for the Left.

I'm still looking for WMD's (Wayoff math aggregates) 8-o
