    You certainly are not going to try to argue that poor people never have abortions are you?

    If by your post you are seriously looking for me to assume a rationale I would probably argue that poor women traveling to another state to have an abortion scaped together enough money for the procedure (beg, borrow, steal).
    Being poor makes it more difficult for a woman to have an abortion, and incidentally may also be why she wants an abortion.

    I don't disagree with you at all here.

    He stated that it "ensures that everyone has had time" to digest the decision. This does not assume that any percentage of women does or does not take any particular length of time to weigh the decision, but that ALL women will have at least minimal time to do so.

    Do you believe that it is wrong to restrict the rights of the many based on the particulars of the few?

    Your perspective changes once you actually go in, talk to the doctor, and make the appointment. You realize that this is actually going to happen. A lot of people don't respect that.

    I say all rights should require a 24-hour waiting period. You can never be too careful.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    I propose that we make everyone wait 24 hours before they can buy fast food. Fast food is unhealthy, and we need a "cool down" period to make sure that everyone has thought it through before making such a purchase. Clearly, you are too emotionally distraught to make such a choice, and the government has a duty to "protect" you by controlling your lifestyle.

    Funny, but wouldn't work, I'm not a large scale consumer of fast food, but when I want, I want and there will be a Burger King, Taco Bell, etc. moment in the upcoming future, whether or not there is a waiting period.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
