Proposition 85: Teen abortion

If you’re looking for a new way to knock a girl down after she’s been knocked up, I’ve got one for you.

You do it every day. It’s almost like breathing; you don’t even know you’re doing it. You’re making a choice. Fall is here, and it’s that special time of year where people get into a apathetic state about voting. The common argument is that a voter’s opinion doesn’t matter.

But the peaceful evening was violently interrupted by a disturbance on Oct 27 involving disruptions from a drunken participant, culminating in two arrests.
