    Re: Why are you here?

    I'm pro-choice, pro-abortion, pro-murder, whatever you want to call it.

    A year or so ago we had a move here in the UK to reduce the legal time restrictions.

    We had an intense debate in the media and in Parliament, it was a free vote in the house of commons,MP's were allowed to vote with their conscience not with the Party line.

    There were some great minds on either side, the move for reduction was soundly defeated.

    So nothing I read here is going to alter my stance.

    It is a Womans right to decide what to do with her body, within the guide lines of the law.

    I'm having the same experience Jerry.

    My views haven't changed per se' but they have been greatly refined and fortified.

    I'm happy to say that as trying as some of the more radical opponents may be,... I have learned some new little details in trying to reach them.

    It's been one of the better forums for that,... for sure.

    Like it was for the 100+ years before Roe was decided and abortion was illegal?

    did the medical technology for abortion even exist back then? this argument is a bit of an anachronism/red herring

    It's not an argument.

    We have had elective abortion illegal before in our nation's history,... and there were no 'draconian' methods employed against women at that time.

    So, claiming that there would be ,... in the event that abortions were to be further restricted,... is simply ignorant of the historical record.

    That's all.

    Ethereal,.. can you tell me how our laws against rape and child molestation are 'feasable' and how a law against elective abortions (by the same measure) would not be?

    Please?

    I would really like to see you break that down for me.

    This is totally untrue. Women were subject to the authority of a patriarchal power structure. Women were expected to fulfill a certain role in society and the idea that they weren't treated like second class citizens is utter BS.
