A great post and I totally agree with Aleister’s sentiments on this. The decision to have an abortion is never one that women take lightly and there is always a psychological cost. But when that decision is made, 95% of the time it is the most responsible thing to do in the situation and patriarchal governments and idiotic pro-lifers have neither the right nor the intelligence to interfere in such decisions. And where is the moral indignation of these thoughtless pro-lifers when it comes to condemning children to a life of poverty, neglect or suffering? I wish these people would develop enough brain cells to be able to see the bigger picture.
“With humans it’s abortion, but with chickens it’s an omelet.”
“Society does not need more children; but it does need more loved children. Quite literally, we cannot afford unloved children – but we pay heavily for them every day. There should not be the slightest communal concern when a woman elects to destroy the life of her thousandth-of-an-ounce embryo. But all society should rise up in alarm when it hears that a baby that is not wanted is about to be born.”
