    I'm a woman, by the way, and your post doesn't appear to recognize that. I'm not judging anyone. I said I support a woman's choice to abort her fetus if she choses. I also think if she choses to do so, she should understand what she's doing. And I would appreciate it if you didn't put words in my mouth. I not only never said, I never even implied "They deserved it for being irresponsible." You are usually a very fair poster. That was rude and out of line.
    I know you are a woman and it's still insulting that you *think* women dont "understand what they are doing" when they have an abortion. And did you not imply that there was some responsibility involved that she was avoiding...by not being probed apparently, as that was the example.

    I appreciate that you are pro-choice, and even more so because by your words, you disagree with choosing abortion, but still support the right to choose, but not recognizing that these belittling, painful (physically and emotionally), and obstructionist tactics (probes, pictures, moving facilities far from people, etc) are all completely disrespectful of women....if the law says she can have an abortion before 21 weeks, then leave her alone and stop putting up roadblocks.

    Other-its the individuals job.

    Morality and virtue are things the individual must control, especially when he/she does not NEED to. Thats what virtue and morality are.

    Ethics is a different issue altogether.

    Absolutely, and thats the point. If you are doing it under threat of consequences its not actual morality, is it?

    For a disturbing thought-consider how many dont think like this.

    It is the job of our government to prevent a violation of peoples rights. No more, no less. The kind of governments that judge, decide, and regulate morality are more often than not those that are religious in nature. Like many countries in the middle east. And I wouldn't exactly call those 1st world countries.

    Which is why it is so important that it be said.

    As an owner of a Fender Jag Stang, I like you plenty.

    But the job of govt is more diverse than simply a violation of peoples rights. Perhaps you consider national security as an example of such and if so I agree.

    First world is a different meaning, independent of morality, I think. Its most likely I dont smell what you've been cooking in your post.

    But in general, the fxn of govt is the bare minimum as I see fit.
