    abortion is now illegal in the state of Kentucky. Kentucky is one of the top 10 most religious states in the USA. Its of course a Christian majority. It is one of the top 10 poorest states in the union. It is the #1 in abuse and neglect of children.

    The potential for life has become more important than life itself.

    Our puritan ancestors were squeamish about sex and the body. We inherited that attitude. That attitude leads to porn, rape, etc. Using sex as a weapon or something lurid is not a positive.

    For context, the abortion rate per 1,000 in the United States is 13.5.

    The poor red states will become poorer with more poor women, and children being born.

    Our rates of abortion had been going down since the late 70s until the last 2 years. The trend was already in the right direction.

    The road to hell is paved with good intentions. You're right

    I think sex is the most natural thing in the world, and the more people talk about it, the more it is demythologized.

    Exactly. It's beautiful. Can people use it in the wrong way? Of course. But, IMO, the bad folks have warped ideas about a beautiful thing.

    People are weird in what they are willing to let each other get away with.

    Yes, I'm pretty prudish about it. Can't really change that, it's built in to my genetics or culture or something.

    My wife is quite prudish as well, but when we went camping, she turned into "Wild Woman", thus we "initiated" many outdoor locations even though we're not exhibitionists. But we did get seen at least once, but it wasn't by intent.

    Malta situation: total abortion ban.

    I think Malta is a very Catholic country, hence this ban. But at the same time, the Maltese use lots of contraceptives, so the rate of unwanted pregnancies is pretty low.

    It is a very touristic country, so there must be lots of young people having fun in several parts of the year.
    I think adults might be more responsible than kids. But if teenagers get pregnant, the State will take care of the mothers, by helping them raise their own child.
