    You really need to stop repressing your feelings and really say what you think.

    I think it's ok for a parent to be the one deciding the reasons for an abortion - no one else.

    That's my very broad general abortion view, there. I consider the reasons to be a private issue.

    IMO, anyone who says that it's OK to abort a baby "for any reason" and also supports hate crime legislation is a hypocrite.

    Oh good - phew 'cause I don't support hate crime legislations I consider them to be unfair - I don't think the perpetrators feelings should put them in jail longer or give them a harsher punishment - it's unfair to those who are victims of those same crimes without racial slurs being tossed into the mix.

    (example)
    If Person A attacked person B with a baseball bat resulting in injury - and it's classified as a hate crime, then person A gets in jail for 5 years.
    If Person C attacked person D with a baseball bat resulting in the SAME injuries - and it's NOT classified as a hate crime, then person C doesn't get put in jail as long as person A - person C might just get 2 years in jail.

    How does that make sense? Someone is punished less than someone else while comitting the same crime? That's unjust to the victim. I think that hate-crime extreme should be the mandatory and everyone should be in jail for same time for the same crimes.

    However - I don't see a relation between the two And that's not at all related ot the topic at hand.

    It is hypocritical to say that the law shouldn't be based on motives when it comes to abortion, and then say that it should be based on motives for violent crimes when the motive in question is the same for both cases.

    Nope, just look at it from an evolutionary perspective.

    Parents typically want their genes to survive the test of time, down through the generations.

    Parents also know that men who shoot their seed up the sewer pipe aren't likely to make babies that way.

    So it makes perfect evolutionary sense for parents to eliminate a known defective fetus that's less likely to demonstrate reproductive success before committing all the resources a full pregnancy and upbringing will consume. Raising a child to maturity is a huge investment and shouldn't be wasted on projects with a demonstrated smaller likelihood of success.

    Of course a whole new arguement could be made on just what exactly is considered a defective gene. I know those that are born blind don't consider themselves defective so.... Heck they even have their own society.
