  1. Duke is in Durham, NC, not Raleigh. It's correct on the GayNews page this post's link leads to.

  2. "Fetal Personhood"? I guess you can just make it up as you go along?
    Rand Paul is a serious mess of a human.

  3. Who is going to pay for all of these infants/babies And what about the pre mature infant?
    With huge strides in technology we are able to keep alive the most nano of infant but at an incredibly HIGH cost. Are you willing to pay for that care?? The single mother who could not get any counseling let alone an abortion for her unwanted child gives birth to a extremely pre mature infant and it costs MILLIONS to keep the child alive. Who pays??

  5. Trevor Donovan is a classically handsome northern German man.

    Without exaggeration, it is a great tragedy that his career did not hit earlier.

    Trevor Donovan in his twenties would have been the ultimate dream date.

    His agent must have been an incompetent.
