And the state of my current residence isn't in terribly great shape, either.

It seems that Democratic (naturally) State Representative Beth Wessel-Kroeschell- an ELCA "Lutheran-" thinks that abortions are a good idea because babies have colic.

She takes this position in opposition to a bill passed by the Republican-controlled house banning- wait for it- webcam abortions.

If there's anything even wackier than an Iowa Republican, it's an Iowa Democrat. Of course, having one's spiritual values formed by the theology of the ***A doesn't exactly help one deal rationally with ethical values, either.
