Paule is running for the newly created , which includes Lake Elsinore, Wildomar, Murrieta and parts of unincorporated Temecula.

SPB: You are missing a key point, Abstinence has never been taught in the schools. They refuse to teach it, instead giving out condems and sex education that encourages sexual relations amongst teens. Sex Education is not needed as sex does see to come naturally for most. Abstinence does work when it is promoted as the number one way to prevent pregnancy and STD's. You cannot give someone a car and tell them not to drive it...thus the way sex education leads to sex. High goals put sex second and accomplishment first--for teens anyway.

LBV: If a blastula was not a person you would have failed to exist. Basic human biology shows that the blastula became you. Who are we to judge whether that person has value or not? Glad your Mom was pro-life. :)

Hi Jennifer. A blastula is not a person. In fact, you cannot discern what type of creature a blastula will grow into by simply looking at the blastula. Why not? Because all animal blastulas look the same. Human, chimpanzee, starfish… they all look the same. [1] And what makes you think my mother was prolife? Because I was born? You’re assuming my mother was in a situation where she had to choose whether to terminate her pregnancy. She wasn’t. She married my father, they wanted children, and here I am. 1. http://bio1151.nicerweb.com/Locked/media/ch32/embryonic.html

LBV: Not sure about yours but my blastula was human. We can try to play God all day but in the end...your products of conception...made you what you are today. Your parents gave you life...and others should not decide for that unborn child that he/she..their blastula..whatever you want to call it...doesn't have a right to exisit. If you care so much about rights...care about the child that is forming. Adoption is a better option for everyone and saves a life to boot. Sounds like we will never agree, sorry to say. You might volunteer your time at the local abortion suite and change your mind after seeing tiny parts.

@ Jen, ummm... are you sure about that? Abstinence only education has not only been taught in schools, it has been statistically shown to not meet its stated objectives. Its good to tell kids not to have sex until they are ready, but just pretending like it doesn't exist isn't smart policy. The kids already have the keys and the car, all I'm calling for is a little drivers ed.
