I have progressive. </p>

Any idea on if progressive. Any idea on if and how much my insurance and how much my insurance will go up by adding him?

Asshole-ish question?

I have a feeling this has been asked before, but anyway. This isn't a I-wanna-judge-you post  or a I-wanna-convert-you post, but I'm really curious here. It honestly took me 16 years to decide that I was 100% pro-choice (even if the reasoning has nothing to do with women's rights,actually after some discussion this really isn't the truth either).


If you are a vegan or vegetarian for moral reasons are you pro-life or pro-choice or other? What's your reasoning?

Also, for everyone else, why are you pro-life or pro-choice or other?


----
[Why I&apos;m pro-choice without true regards to women&apos;s rights]
My reasoning might be considered a little messed up/stupid/twisted. I'm more of an advocate for children, although a woman's choice comes into play, it's not necessarily for her benefit that I care. I had a rough early childhood, an even as a very small child I remember wishing I had never been born because it was so clear my biological mother and everyone else didn't want me. I hate the idea of a child being forced to grow up with individuals who might not want them or be ready to have them... and that includes any reason at all, even reasons I consider to be horrifying... like they didn't want a boy. To me, infants are the most perfect humans on the planet, how could people advocate them being a punishment for not using birth control or having sex? Even the argument that the infants can be given up for adoption makes me ill. I'm guessing people don't have statistics on infant demand or have never lived in a group home with people who told them the only reason they had a home was because of the money that came along with them. Plus, it makes a child seem like some sort of object. For me, it's all about the quality of life the mother thinks they can give the child. I'm guessing very few people get abortions for "funsies", but even if they were (I highly doubt the existence)... how can a person want to force a child to live with someone who was like that? If a person doesn't want an infant for any reason... I can't bare the thought of a child having to live life with that person. Yes, sure, people can change their minds about wanting children after they have them, that happens, but I'm not going the bet the life of a child on it, what kind of person would? Yes, sure, some great people have risen above shitty-circumstances, but I'm not going to bet the life of a child on it, what kind of person would? If a woman thinks she can do it, and she wants to try, then I support her choice because just having a parent who loves you means a lot, but is she doesn't think so... I support her choosing not to put a child through that.

EDIT: I suppose it does have to do with women's rights. I wouldn't force a pregnancy on someone for any reason either... I mean that seems like down right torture. I mean a person chooses to drive a car, if they get in a car accident knowing full-very-well that it could result in a car accident do you not offer them medical care if they end up hurt in a car accident? I don't see how someone could say "hey they knew sex could result in pregnancy" and say they should have to suffer with the consequences either. So, maybe a bit about the mother's rights I suppose I just never really looked at it from that angle either. Part of me has a hard time sympathizing with adult's consequences... but on the other hand I don't advocate torture (and I could see being forced through a pregnancy and birth to be a form of torture) so how can I say that a mother should have to try to carry a pregnancy to birth for any reason? It sucks yes, but like I said, I doubt people have abortions for fun.

TIA!

My husband just passed out while in the bathroom. One second he was getting ready to do his business, the next he felt cold/nauseated and fell over face-first into the bathtub. He got up, and says he's fine now. I'm worried.

Is randomly passing out for seemingly no reason not a big deal?

ETA: he wasn't pooping. "Did you poop too hard??" was my second question after "omg are you okay?"

How often do you print out your digital photos? Where do you get them printed (photo store, drugstore, home printer, etc.)? After you print them, what do you do with them (photo box, album, frame, give away, etc)?

I am stressed the fuck out.  I need a drink; partially to calm my nerves and partially so that I don't feel my broken ankle while I have to hobble from room to room.

My mother is having some complications from a surgery that she had on Wednesday.  I am not happy about not being by her side, but I have 6 days to pack up and move out of my apartment.  She promised to call if she needs anything, but she is INCREDIBLY stubborn (she wanted to drive herself to the doctor today - 2 days after having him cut into and stitch up her eye!) so I am worried.  If she does call, I will have to drive 40 minutes to her home.

Yes, I know driving with a broken ankle is not a good idea, but I don't have a choice.

Do I make my drink, pack my shit and hope that my mom is okay or stay off my ankle, cry and stress out?  What would YOU do?

What are your holiday traditions?
Does your family fight during the holidays?

Every year it seems that my sister fights with at least one of our parents, this year being no exception, even though she's not even here yet. Now my sister refuses to come visit.
