Freedom means different things to different people.
In the U.S, freedom can mean the right for a woman to seek an abortion.
Just saying..........in China, freedom might mean to some women, the right to have a second child without being forced to have an abortion.
Meanwhile, your ideas of freedom seem to be along the same lines as my ideas of freedom.
At least China is aware that there is a population problem
* Number of marriages: 2,162,000
* Marriage rate: 7.1 per 1,000 total population
* Divorce rate: 3.5 per 1,000 population (44 reporting States and D.C.)
Among the findings in this report: unmarried cohabitations overall are less
stable than marriages. The probability of a first marriage ending in
separation or divorce within 5 years is 20 percent, but the probability of
a premarital cohabitation breaking up within 5 years is 49 percent. After
10 years, the probability of a first marriage ending is 33 percent,
compared with 62 percent for cohabitations.
Polk said the median age of cars on U.S. roads was 9.2 years in 2007. That ties the previous year's record high. In 2007, 41.3 percent of all cars were 11 years or older, compared with 40.9 percent the year before.
I still think 3rd trimester abortions should only be done in cases of medical emergency, rape and incest.
Well said, sir. After reading that, it's hard to understand why we dont see eye to eye more often, at least from my point of view.
Probably because my beliefs aren't static, they depend on the situation. While my general beliefs are listed above, they may be influenced by a number of variables that lead me to a different conclusion.
It's a personal choice, and not one that the state should be able to make. The state should neither force you to give up your child, nor force you to have a child that is unwanted.
(cmon, whoever says that is beautiful has something seriously wrong with them)
