Re: Should Black People...

Isome ·
No, no, no we should not and are not responsible for them being comfortable. One of the biggest obstacles we face is their propensity to view themselves as the center of the universe and all that they do, think and feel as the norm, or as the normative standard to which everything is compared and judged. Much like spoiled children, they need to learn that the sun does not rise and set upon them. A little discomfort is just what the doctor ordered.

The fact that Bennet and his wive are virulent anti-Abortion activists is not enough to have you to admit how unlikely such an event is likely to happen under him as you said little about the ABORTION DOCTOR in Arkansas who offered to abort Black babies for free. The Black people coming out of New Orleans had enough to deal with - why deal with a kid? Too much of a hasle. Right?

Al Qaeda No. 2: Bush must admit defeat in Iraq (CNN) -- An Arabic language news network has aired a video of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden's top lieutenant, in which he called on U.S. President George W. Bush to admit defeat in Iraq. Al-Jazeera said the video, which is about a minute long, was made in December.

Frenchy, I think I hear ya. But the "attractive attorney" or "doctor" and the "pretty boy" may be just other versions of "Denzel": widespread cultural ideals of what we're "supposed to want". I don't ever hear people setting their sights for the attractive engineer or mathematician or dentist. Much less the ambitious and intelligent young janitor.

Hey Frenchy, The first question I have is what type of arthritis does your mom has?

She has rheumatoid arthritis. I don't know what the monthly injections were.

My father ended up taking her to the Emergency Room this afternoon and they...

Re: RU486

Frenchy ·
I remember there being a big outcry about RU486 here. The perception is that you just pop a pill and that's that, which is far from the truth . I believe you can get the RU486 combination from any doctor who can establish how far along you are and treat you if something goes wrong, which is pretty dodgy. I don't think the demand for it is very strong here. I think surgical abortions are much safer and much more reliable and less stressful/traumatic on the woman.

I'm a bit surprised by this. The RU486 combination of drugs requires the woman to see a doctor for 3 separate visits, as opposed to one visit for a surgical abortion, it's not as effective as the surgical procedure, and the side-effects are much more severe and longer-lasting. Seems like it would be much more difficult for women who live in remote areas. Much applause that the counseling aspect of abortion isn't being ignored, though. And certainly women should have as many options on the...

I'm wondering why you think RU486 is not as effective as a surgical procedure? Do you mean a successful abortion or you mean health-wise.
