no auto (don't have a car, but do use zipcar), work pays my life insurance (yeah, it's awesome), no disability. Renters insurance $200/year. These things almost negate the insane rent I pay in NYC. [ Reply | More ]

This is a half-truth at best.

[ - ] Other programs that allow same-sex couples to abort their simulated offspring have taken hold in Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York. "Having the right to choose is crucial, and I'm not going to be denied that choice simply because's I'm gay," said Eric Smith, 34, of Manhattan. Smith and his partner, Brian Keller, terminated a simulated pregnancy at a Planned Parenthood clinic last month. Despite being biologically unable to bear a child, Taylor was given abortifacients and underwent the same procedure that a female patient would experience at the clinic. The only major difference was that a simulated fetus was inserted into his rectum and symbolically expelled minutes later. "I'll always be proud of Eric for having the courage to make that difficult choice," Keller said. "He's the love of my life, and that will never change," he added. http://nytimes.com/US/NEWS/05/05/13/male_abortions.html 5 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
