Live with it.
Politically for the foreseeable future you're right, but such things can and do have a tremendous effect on the individual level, if they convince even one woman who was on the fence not to take the final step and go into the clinic.No amount of 'It's a Choice, Not a Child' bumper stickers or pictures of dead babies will have one effect on the status quo, other than to distract everything from problems with they can actually affect.
Yes, that's exactly what I'm saying. Generic idiotic exchanges aren't exciting. They evoke a sense of apathy in those who have actually bothered to think about whatever it is. We see them all the time at work, at social gatherings, on the news, etc. It's not like this issue hasn't been discussed in the exact same manner billions of times in front of us for the past few decades. It's hard to muster a lot of effort for the same old garbage we take for granted as watercooler debate. It wouldn't be an election year without everyone talking about whatever buzz-word issue that will have no impact on anything but our sense of self-righteousness.Are you saying that in order to have interesting conversations, we need better idiots? Thats a new one.
