    Press them on the issue: will only the woman go to prison for life, or only the doctor, or both?

    And when are they going to outlaw the destruction of sperm in order to put a stop to the Sin of Onan which is pervasive throughout the land?  What city, or what state, will be the first to rid itself of this terrible curse?!

    Think of it: you drive through some city at night, and you just know that along the roads where you are driving, that very minute, there are men who are busily committing the Sin of Onan.  No city is free of this curse!  There is nowhere to go that isn't subjected to its evil influence!

    If you got out of your car and looked around, you could point:  there! and there! and there! are the dark rooms where men are practically giving themselves carpal tunnel syndrome in defiance of the Lord!  

    But think of how it would feel if you knew that your home town was sin-free, and that nowhere in your city limits did a single guy indulge in the sinful pastime.  Ahh, the purity!  Ooh, the moral cleanliness!  Oooh and Aaah, the sense of righteousness!  

    "Minus two votes for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
