Smart Girls

Winnie Cooper from "The Wonder Years"

Blossom from "Blossom"

I was going to do a story about child actresses who don't end up in porn but then I ran accros this post.

I'm not going to go into how fucked up this guy is in assuming that IVF isn't Gods will. Perhaps the Grand Architect of the Universe has decided that it's time for mankind to use the gift of his science to solve infertility. It's no matter that no one knows how many embryos fertalize naturally and fail to implant compared to those embryos that are counted in the lab.

If I knew how hard it would be to have children I would have started much earlier in life. The overwhelming message from the media is to have an education and career in place and start a family later in life. For many women who buy into that message they find out the painfully hard way that it's too late to have a family.

Our culture infantalizes our children until well into their most fertile time frame. No beer for a teenager who just held his buddy in his arms while he dies in the dusty streets of Kandahar. That boy is a MAN. He deserves a beer more then I do and a job where he can support a family when he marries his high school sweetheart. Instead he has to wait until he's 21 for that beer. His girlfriend is going to college because she knows she'll have to get a job that pays more then minimum wage just to keep the family afloat. There's no time for her to have babies. It will be years before her boyfriend is home and finished college. It will be years before that couple can afford to have children. Hopefully she'll still be fertile when her college loans are paid off.

Wow, that guy is a cobag! A total cobag. Another example of AG's concerns with freedom of speech.

No matter how hard I try, it always seems that I'm going to Hell.

Ah well.

Yes, the Catholic church is pretty unequivocal on IVF, the guy in your article there was basically explaining the Catholic position. I got sick of the Catholic church over the issue of contraception, and the fact that as I sat there in Mass I knew I was really not welcome or wanted, as someone who thinks there is nothing wrong with contraception. Almost anyone who really investigates the church would find that they are doing something "wrong" and do not belong there... Maybe everyone except me knew this all along!

When will people start to realize that we don't need organized religion in order to be spiritually fulfilled?

Most people who go to church in America don't get that from it anyway.

Ron Reagan said something that I thought was interesting about all of those embryos that get frozen indefinitely. Obviously the comment was in the context of stem cell research and its impact on diseases like altimeter's. but it might apply here, to paraphrase: Embryos don't suffer people do.

What is altimeter's? If it is a disease why is it in the possessive with the 's?
Just asking.

Spell check strikes again. I believe it's Alzheimers. Altimeters sounds like something a plane would get.
