    I'm glad I'm not a women in Alabama.

    Yes. When replying to a post it is a good idea to read the post you are responding to. Novel for some, I know. I will repeat myself for your benefit - with apologies to others on this thread. If people were better educated and had greater access to birth control there would be far fewer unwanted pregnancies and fewer abortions

    If people were better educated and had greater access to birth control there would be far fewer unwanted pregnancies and fewer abortions. I don’t believe there is anyone who wants to have an abortion. It must be a very difficult choice in most cases. However we don’t live in a world where there is no rape, incest, serious birth defects, dangerous pregnancies, drugs, alcohol or mistakes so abortion is the only answer. This thread is about locking women and medical practitioners up for life for this....which you either support or you don’t. If you don’t then you are in favour of keeping abortion legal as I am and are simply trolling as usual.

    Of course there are. Nobody is actually pro-abortion. It is about pro-choice. You are free to voice your views but it is your kind that arE threatening lifetimes in prison so who are the real bullies?

    You talk about posting rubbish and then say that we should ask a foetus for an opinion. Thinking about it perhaps it would actually make more sense than asking your opinion on anything.

    Every sperm and every egg is viable. Think how many of those just get flushed down the loo. This rabbit-hole has no clear beginning or end.

    That is why abortions after 20 weeks are rare anywhere in the world and are typically medical emergencies. Congratulations on this. How long was your daughter incubated at the hospital though?

    Actually probably better for that potential baby too. Society is not crying out for hundreds of thousands more unwanted, unloved, disaffected children and young adults mainly born into poverty unless you are thinking of the additional jobs in social work, police, prisons etc. Getting pregnant is incredibly easy (for most people). Parenthood is incredibly hard even if it you have prepared and planned for it. Bringing up children should not be taken lightly so forcing people to do that job against their will is a recipe for trouble. Far easier just to think about the act of abortion itself rather than the full consequences of considering the miserable life you are most likely fostering and the affects on others who come into contact with them. And, frankly, the biggest issue facing the human race and indeed all life on earth is human over-population. There needs to be far fewer births and an overall population decline because the planet cannot sustain the 7,000,000,000 and rising number of people.

    And 3 months is based on what exactly? What statistics there are (for Australia) indicate that the vast majority of abortions take place before 14 weeks pregnancy and only a tiny 2% take place after 20 weeks. There are plenty of debates about the suitable time periods. 28 weeks is the common scientific consensus for a baby that is viable outside the womb. Obviously the sooner the procedure takes place the better for all concerned.

    I take it you don’t mean becoming gay! In case you are unaware your vote is SECRET which means that nobody knows whether you have voted for the straight candidate or the gay candidate so you can still take your prejudices to the voting booth without being “scared”.

    You are so clueless on this subject. But if you equate every abortion that has been carried out as murder (and presumably every miscarriage stemming from a physical action, accidental or otherwise, as manslaughter) then you are an extremist in my eyes. You are far closer to Sharia Law than you are to secular liberal democracy. Sad to say.

    That’s a laugh. Since when has being gay been more helpful to anyone’s political career than being straight. Why don’t you list all the elected gay heads of state in the last 100 years anywhere in the world. Reckon you will probably draw a blank on that one.

    Read carefully what you have written and see if you can identify the ambiguity. If not let me help you by utilising your own words in another context to see if you can spot it. I believe a man has the right to rape a woman and I cannot and will not condemn him for doing what’s right for him, but I also have the right to say that raping a woman in my eyes is wrong. That statement makes exactly the same sense as yours. None!

    You may well believe that you are holding some sort of moral high-ground on this topic but until you have a world where there is:- No crime No drugs or alcohol No serious birth defects Risk-free pregnancies Education untainted by religious dogma No mistakes (or even faulty condoms) Then until that time there will be STDs and there will be unplanned and unwanted impregnation. Nobody believes that abortion is a good thing but some of us remain grounded in the real world rather than the fantasy heavenly world of the religious zealots. They should just look forward to dropping dead so that they can access their fantasy world with none of the above issues. In the meantime they should butt out of determining policy with their phoney moralising.

    Remember it well. I remember thinking at the time that I wouldn’t be able to drive a car when I became 18 because there would be no oil. They got much better at finding it and extracting it. It now seems there is plenty enough fossil fuel for our environmental disaster. Fracking is for gas btw, not oil, and it’s a very recent phenomenon.

    Of course there will still be mining. And whilst those are essential we are creating too much plastic for example. This is not a zero sum game. Even net carbon neutrality assumes that there will still be emissions - but balanced with CO2 absorption. We are showing no signs of getting close to carbon neutrality though. More coal mining is the exact opposite of what we should be aiming to do as a species. Humans are releasing CO2 which has been trapped and stored underground over tens or hundreds of millions of years at a tremendous pace. This CO2 was absorbed by plants and animals and then buried from a time when the planet was much hotter than it is now and not suited for mammals such as ourselves. Realisation is slowly dawning.....but do we care enough to adapt our lives to stave off a climate catastrophe? I believe not.
