  • Deb Morrow. Facebook: Wall Post Comment. 17 February 2012."Instead of focusing on how to improve behavior of others whose lifestyles you find unseemly, think how the current national agenda can affect you personally. Do you want your wife denied a life-saving procedure because it's against the conscience of a hospital employee? Do you want your daughter told to hold an aspirin between her knees to handle family planning? For years, Democrats have warned about infringement on women's rights, while Republicans reduce it to one emotional and false claim, that we supposedly favor abortions." (www.facebook.com)
