There is nothing as obnoxious as a Liberal’s supercilious self-righteousness.
It’s quite ironic that the author calls those you believe in life “Draconian”.
Maybe he should check a dictionary for the definition of Draconian:
1. of or relating to Draco, 7th-century Athenian statesman and lawmaker, or his code of laws, which prescribed death for almost every offence
2. harsh: draconian legislation
This good news is hard to believe. Who has the Moral Absolutes pinglist TOL?
Perhaps Andrew Belonsky should stop being such a racist cultural chauvinist and recognize that mobile apps do not have to be designed solely for the tastes of rich, white elitists from the Northeast in order to have value.
Now that I think about it, this kind of makes sense.
From Isaac Assimov. “The Three Laws of Robotics:”
1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

The app is in the Android App store - and authored by a company called Dextera - the only connection Verizon may have to the app is selling devices capable of fetching the app from the Andriod store. To represent it as “Verizons Android application” is patently false.
Sucking the brains out of a baby whose head pops out of the mother is not draconian at all. It is such a civil event.
Trying to download it from the Android Market now, but no luck - keeps error-ing out on download.
‘course, it even says it’s Alpha software...probably be a while before they get all the bugs worked out.
I'm sure Siri, et. al. could find you a "Family Planning" office without any trouble.
