Thread Name: Abortion: Here we Go...
Subject: RE: Abortion: Here we Go...
Agreed, there are some people who should not be parents, and I would agree with some sort of procedure to prevent them from getting married but thats not going to solve the problem. It's strange that lawyers are needed when divorce looms but nobody is required to advice a couple before they get married. But married or not children will still be conceived, and in this day and age with all of the contraceptives, creams, condoms etc openly available there is absolutely no excuse for hunderds of thousands of innocent children being killed, no excuse whatsoever, and believe me I am not putting the blame or the responsibility solely on women, ( Kimmers - i'm sorry, but has uur husband never heard of condoms?). With all the arguments presented above, there is one statement that stands clear = We do not have the right to say who lives and who dies" period. I am normally a very complacent quiet type of individual but this topic gets me hot under the collar. About the type of life the child will have, true it may be hard, there may be a broken home, no money, little clothes but give any of these children the choice and they would scream I WANT TO LIVE. If we were to abort a child because of poverty, physical handicap, alcoholic parents. etc - we would have aborted Beethoven ! I give thanks to my mother every day for not aborting me.

LJC - I just realized who you are, sorry for not making the connection sooner, I worked as the alternate act when you were With Ralph O'Brien and the boys in the Windsor house. Nice to see you are still alive and kicking.
