Do you support affirmative action for women in educational settings? I'm asking because you write on both feminism and education and was interested to see if you had a different take on it than most concerning the gender gap.

Best wishes.

You're a brave man and a great soldier.

So because a woman decides to have sex and thus opens the possibility of becoming pregnant even when she is apparently too poor to be a parent, I, as a taxpayer get to fund an organization whose primary solution to said above problem is an abortion. This is in spite of the fact that I am morally opposed to abortion, but under compulsion to remain a taxpayer.

I am a little confused how two congresswomen's "experiences" with their own pregnancies and abortions somehow vindicate the use of taxpayer money for a service that is consequence (in most cases) of a personal choice to have unprotected sex. I also am uncomfortable with the notion that Planned Parenthood abortions are the only solution to an unplanned pregnancy for people deemed too poor to have children; or the implication that Planned Parenthood somehow is doing the poor black community a favor by offering taxpayer funded abortions.
Life is about hard choices and there are consequences to our actions (good or bad) but forcing the public to fund a "solution" so that kids don't have to eat ramen noodles or watered down formula, seems . . . well, wrong.

Oh what bliss is ignorance, and somehow supporting the public funding of Planned Parenthood is enlightened, brave perhaps to the point of being courageous.....But it is too much to ask that a person of limited intellect as Ms Moore, or other "enlightened" idiots know the history or original design of planned parenthood and the genocidal intents of it's founder and supporters; specifically targeting Blacks and other minorities as inferior...as Founder Marget Sanger eloquently put it:
On the extermination of blacks:
"We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population," said Sanger, "if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."
On sterilization & racial purification:
Sanger believed that, for the purpose of racial "purification," couples should be rewarded who chose sterilization. Birth Control in America, The Career of Margaret Sanger, by David Kennedy, p. 117, quoting a 1923 Sanger speech.

On the right of married couples to bear children:
Couples should be required to submit applications to have a child, she wrote in her "Plan for Peace." Birth Control Review, April 1932

On the purpose of birth control:
The purpose in promoting birth control was "to create a race of thoroughbreds," she wrote in the Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921 (p. 2)

On the rights of the handicapped and mentally ill, and racial minorities:
"More children from the fit, less from the unfit -- that is the chief aim of birth control." Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12

Yet here we have Obama, Moore, Clinton (list goes on and on) clueless and blindly making public comments that the above quoted Sanger is such a role model...either they do not know who she really was or we need to really look at their core values and beliefs but you can't have it both ways. Moore in her typical incoherent babbling suggests that because she was poor and had to feed her children Ramen...that it is OK to decide to instead kill the unborn and have someone else pay for it? How does her not having money when she was 18 (how many of us did?) make it a reproductive right to have someone else fund your abortion? She should put corks in her ears to help the brain from leaking out completely.
