Junk mail button is better, that way your family doesn't think you died.

I'll never forget the look on my mother's face when at 16 I told her if 
she was going to sign the family name on this church sponsored 
anti-abortion advertisement that she sign each persons name 
individually and make sure mine wasn't on it.

Please please please don't take this as a pro/anti abortion fight 
picking, just a comment that I thought of when I saw that.   Personally 
I'd never want an abortion, but then I can't get pregnant in the first 
place.   We had to try very hard to have our first little one with 
in-vitro and were even semi-shunned for doing that since 2 eggs were 
put in and only one came out.   Had some 'family friends' decide that 
was bad, and got rather hostile when I informed them that actually 13 
eggs were fertilized.

I sit here watching the now almost 3 year old playing on 
Playhousedisney.com with a computer and know I did the right thing to 
work very hard to try and bring that special little life into the 

Of course for Christmas 2002 we found out our second one was coming 
that was 'medically impossible' according to the person that did the 
in-vitro four our first child.   So someone was looking out for us, I 
just don't feel that I could ever want someone in office that feels 
they need to legislate their someone onto my someone when 2000 years of 
history wrote and re-wrote the dogma that this someone is built off of.

But what do I know.
