    A True Benefit to Society; Yes to Society.

    They help out society, culture and planet from unwanted kids, and also help protect the mothers that choose to be parents, and also educate and inform.  Now if only the self-proclaimed moralists and myopic politicians would GET OUT OF THEIR WAY!

    Little Thanks

    I'm sure I should direct this to someone who can use it to help others, but for now, I'll start here. When I was 16, I had a steady boyfriend.  I was educated about sex.  AIDS and HIV were not yet publicized as a threat.  Herpes and genital warts were whispered...
