Well, seeing as how even after birth the child is still less intelligent than a common rat(which most people have no remorse killing) I think that it is no less horrible to abort then to set a mouse trap in your house.
Also, the consciousness of a fetus in the womb during the latest period it can be aborted is about that of a lizard, then yes abortion should be allowed. How about we concentrate on the sanctity of life for the thousands of children who starve to death every month. With each child born, where one could be adopted from one of these horrible places, it is much worse than abortion.

Well, in social reform, obviously some laws would have to be changed. It has been done before when the government stuck it's nose into the whole marriage thing, why couldn't they do it again?
Personally, I think marriage(the government's version), is outdated and should be done away with completely. It made sense back in the dark ages, when women were not allowed to work, and it was one person working to support a whole family. That is just my opinion.
