I give quarter to life.
I would never support the re introduction of death penalty to UK.
Do you know one of the few last women who were hung in UK happened because she killed her husband after years of abuse, she was suffering from battered woman syndrome and she had suffered a miscarriage 10 days previously after he beat her.
Just a random interesting fact for you

So it is acceptable to murder children if the "womans mental well being is in jeopardy"?Originally Posted by Reverend
That doesn't really answer my question.
That still doesn't answer my question. What I am asking you is how you make the distinction at a certain period in the pregnancy when it suddenly becomes an 'innocent child.'at 8 weeks, science still considers this an "embryo", and I will reluctantly defer to the known science that this is still a stage where things like miscarriages and what not most often occur. I would like for it to be like 2 weeks, and as soon as one finds out. if it has to occur at all.
"I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."
Is it acceptable? No not really. But its something I am willing to compromise on, until we as a society put the value of life where it belongs....

How about when brainwave activity can first be seen. What is that 6 weeks?
I change my position from 8 weeks to 6 weeks.... Based on scientific information.
What science do you have to support 24 week and later abortions as not killing a human?
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
Abortion on-demand is nothing more than the decision to terminate an innocent human life out of selfishness, If there's a greater example of selfishness, I'm not aware of it.
