Congress and Abortion - and Miscarriages

They talk about jobs, jobs, jobs, but what does the House bring up for debate and actio? Abortion, and yet another bill to ban federal funding.

Miscarriages are spontaneous abortions. Yes, there is almost always no intentional action by the woman or a doctor. But the result is the same. Since up to 50% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage, why don't all these pro-life people spend more time and effort concentrating on the incidence of miscarriage?

We were fold that Columbus discovered America. Sounds good but a bit of a stretch since Columbus first landed in the Bahamas and never set foot in the U.S., our "America". Better to say he discovered the Americas. Or the "New World", since the America name came later.

And not really a discovery, which took place centuries earlier by the indigenous peoples It was really a first European "awareness" of these lands.

But, enjoy the day off.
