I cannot vote, because in my side of teh world, our lovely government officials -corrupt lot- have colluded with teh Catholic church -more corrup lot, washing funds for the drug cartels- to keep this option away from the masses, as well as any other resemblance of birth control, or control over anything.
Meanwhile, hundreds of girls under 9 die every year or are yes, literally, "punished with teh burden iof pregnancy" and children they cannot afford to feed. If they live, they are ostracized from societey, education is a distant dream, and men in general think they are like "batism pools" where everyone can get their hands in. In summary, a social disaster.
Then the kids grow up in teh stteet, as mom works and there is no social network to take care of teh kids, and we have the gangs, which in turn are gunned down regularly by extreme right groups who feel that is the best way to keep the rich neighborhoods safe and control crime. Which is really ironic, since those same right heads are also leaders of the drug trade, colluding to invest funds with the Catholic church...
You get my meaning.
I just pary that someday we will have a reliable, cheap form of contraception, that can be used in children, so that they will at least have a fighting chance. That, and that the karma sowed will be reaped.

If any new arrival needs assistance in Taipei, I can provide it in exchange for Star Trek or Supernatural
(the TV series) stuff or other sci-fi materials. Let me know what help you need by PM, along with what you have to offer in return. And yes, I am serious.
