Killing children...because the term "fetus" is too medically accurate.

Here in the south, republicans are a dime-a-dozen. I suppose I can survive the republicans okay. It's the extreme religious right that drives me into an un-checked rage of violence.

Example: Pregnancy and Abortion.

Moral issue? Definitely. Matter of choice? Apparently that's debatable. If you go to this website http://www.virginiapregnancy.org/ and look around, especially at the pregnancy>abortion link or even the info>contraception link, you will find an organization posing as a clinic. They are not, however, a clinic. They are an NGO with absolutely no doctors on staff and no medically trained personell whatsoever. Instead of providing medically accurate information, they use language to deter people from having abortions, using contraception, or having sex at all (unless it is under the pretense of having a child in wedlock). When "educating" people about abortion, instead of refering to the unborn as a fetus or an embryo, they call it a child or an infant. What the fuck? A fetus is a fetus. A fetus is not a child. Call it what it fucking is. Calling it a child implies that it is walking and talking and thinking, instead of acknowledging it for what it is...a parasite with the POTENTIAL of becoming a person.

But these people do not stop at the medically inaccurate guild trip--oh no. They take it to a religious level. Girls who are looking for birth control options or who have found themselves pregnant and seeking an abortion, have unwittingly turned to this organization seeking help. Of course, who wouldn't, with a name like "The Pregnancy Center of Central Virginia"? It sounds ligit, does it not? Instead of finding information and help, these girls get lectures about God and Jesus and abstinence. They also find themselves being encouraged to marry the man who knocked them up--to avoid going to hell.

Assholes.
