Who needs horses and Logan Tavern when you have Kansas and pro-lifers?

While others in DC were having all sorts of great times, (thank you May and Steve for multiple drunk dials all weekend about how much fun you were having), I was visiting my ex-ish boyfriend in Kansas.

One highlight included going to Mass on Sunday. I am not Catholic or particularly religious so I got really bored and checked out the church's main lobby. And, rather than finding a bulletin board with cute pictures from the nunnery or whatever, I found an entire table dedicated to anti-abortion and the ol’ poke-and-pray (Natural Family Planning) literature.

For those of you who are all wrapped up in your liberal / nothing-west-of-the-Hudson blankets (and Lord knows, I understand why) here are just a few highlights of Middle America a.k.a the flyover states.

Fav Mass Moment:“Here, honey,” said 21 year-old mother to her toddler girl as she hands her child the plastic replica of a 24 week old fetus being displayed to demonstrate the various stages of a fetus’ development (located right as you walk in the church door).

Fav Logical Argument: “‘Every woman has the right to her own body’ sounds sensible doesn’t it? But not when it is used to defend abortion…the dictionary defines woman as a ‘female human being.’ Since sex is determined at conception and over half of those aborted are ‘female human beings’ then obviously not every woman has the right to control her own body.”
—Language of Illusion: The Abortion Slogans

Fav Anti-Abortion slogan used: “Think outside the box…and inside the womb.”

Fav Q&A:
Question: Should a parent discuss “how far you go?” with their teen?

Answer: “You bet! What a fair question, and one that needs to be answered in a way that teens will understand. I tell teens that if they rev up the car motor, they intend to go, and if they rev each other up, it will be real tough to turn the motor off! Teens need to know that foreplay leads to sexual intercourse, and that if they don’t want to go to a destination, they should not keep going in the same direction! You need to tell them the difference between AFFECTION and ARROUSAL. If they cross over into the arousal stage…necking, petting, prolonged kissing…then it’s harder for them to turn back, and if they mix it with alcohol, it’s DEADLY! Alcohol deadens the conscience and heightens the passions.”
