or my views its about you and yours (yes I'm talking to YOU) so tell me How do you justify the so called "pro-choice" stance?
I believe your position is based on a piece of unsound reasoning, mwm1331. Children aren't aborted. Infants aren't aborted. Babies
aborted. Abortions are performed on unrealised potential
human beings - so to be opposed to abortion is no different to being opposed to male
So what's the "morally reprehensible" choice? To remove, surgically or medically, a cluster of cells, or bring an unwanted, unplanned, often
unsupported child into an already-overpopulated world?
Edit for an additional thought: Though the mudpit is no more, this is still the forum for political
discussion. Wouldn't this thread be
better placed on BTS?
