I haven’t been keeping tabs on what goes on in Iowa lately, but this little commentary caught my attention. It’s titled, “There are worse things than pregnancy” and hey, it’s a short entry so I’ll just cut and paste it here for you:
It’s ironic that Christie Vilsack’s inspiration for her work with the newly formed Iowa Initiative to Reduce Unintended Pregnancies is the biological mother of her husband, former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack.
(Ha, that IS ironic!)
If Christie Vilsack and the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation had existed when Tom Vilsack was conceived, he would not have been born. And look how poorly he turned out.
The worst thing we can teach our sons and daughters is that the only side effect of sex outside of marriage is pregnancy. Whose foundation will follow up with funding to teach our children about sexually transmitted diseases, cervical cancer, genital warts and sterility caused by promiscuous sex?
