I am not sure if babies having long or short term memories has anything to do with abortion.
What an emotive subject this is. What I find illogical is we (here in the UK) do not agree with euthenasia, despite some suffering unbearable pain
in their last few days,because it is not ethical for the state to kill someone.
Yet thousands of abortions are carried out on perfectly normal fetus.
I am an advocate of abortion but things imo have got out of hand, women having three, four, five even are using it as contraception, some fetus are
got rid of because they have a hare lip or club foot. And of course women carrying i.e., a Downs Syndrome fetus are routinely talked into having an
abortion, all in the quest of a perfect human race.
Of course there are those who have an abortion because the baby would be the wrong sex.
Not so long ago it was thought new born babies did not feel pain when they were operated on, now they are anethasised because it is believed they
do. We have no proof one way or the about fetus suffering pain when being aborted, I would think those who go through late abortions do.
There will always be cases where abortion is the only answer, such as rape, health of the women and severe disability, the condom split, or the pill
didn't work, but I think women and men have to take more personal responsibility and not have an unwanted pregnacy. There are far more unwanted
pregnancies now than at any other time, yet contraception has never been better or so readily available.
