For no People will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when Knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauched in their Manners, they will sink under their own Weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders. — Samuel Adams
Observation: abortion is on the decline. How many of these out-of-wedlock births would have been abortions back in 1990? I would rather have the out-of-wedlock birth than the abortion.
Observation: cohabitation is not permissible. Does a civil marriage (court house) make it any better? We used to have common law marriage- a couple that cohabitates for a time are deemed by society to be married.
