I've noticed several accusations of irresponsibility on the part of women seeking abortions. Women who have abortions, by definition, cannot be totally irresponsible, by getting an abortion, they are doing the socially responsible thing.

All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume. -Noam Chomsky
Having sex creates babies. Men are 100% necessary in the process. That makes them equally responsible for birth control. If, during the heat of a moment, if a women doesn't have a contraceptive, then the burdens falls on man, period. Simple, huh? NOT.... That's NOT THE REAL WORLD. That's not the reality.
What some in this forum may be saying is the following (which might be a statistical sample of our nations mindset):
Women get pregnant, they automatically become irresponsible sluts. So the burden of her future circumstance of her pregnancy becomes hers alone because SHE FAILED to do whatever was necessary to prevent a pregnancy so she has to suffer the consequences.

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
