    And it would be, if not for the fact that many women PREFER to back off their career goals in order to be more involved with their kids.

    Not every woman has the same personal, social, or political views you wish they did. Therefore, it's 15 percent, not 50.

    No kidding, that's a mountain of TNT ready to derail the thread and throw the whole train into the upper atmosphere.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    This is not about my political "wishes". You can wish all you want, and pray to an invisible sky wizard... that's great. But I don't do that. This about a society in which both sexes are provided equal opportunity. Crap about women being nurturing (and men being less capable of such) is nothing more than neanderthalic grunting. I reject your societal dogma and substitute reality.

    Doesn't matter on the article. You are arguing its best for a family to have 2 parents to create a stable loving home and I am wondering if it applies to all types of families.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Yep, every thread here tends to devolve into gay marriage or Hitler. LOL

    It is best for a family to involve THE mother and THE father in a happy marriage, yes. But again, let's please not let this digress into a gay marriage thread. That will take this discussion a million miles away from the OP. Let's at least wait until page 80.

    This is nothing to do with gay marriage but the perception on what an ideal "good stable family" has to be.

    So if Hitler and Eva Braun were the only parents available for your child (assuming the child isn't Jewish), why would you NOT want them to adopt?
