    yes, but in 95% of abortion cases that are not related to any of these red herrings, no

    I may disagree on moral grounds, but it is her right and I would in no way interfere with her right to do so.

    I support a womens right and a doctors right to make the determination. It's not the governments business. Or the churches.

    I neither support nor oppose someone who is the victim of a crime doing whatever they feel the need to do. I support trying the responsible man for murder if it results in an abortion.

    So, the rape is not worth a criminal charge if a pregnancy ensues?

    I don't think it is a matter of rights to do this or that.
    It is a matter of freedom NOT to be coerced this way or that way.

    At this point neither prochoice nor prochoice groups promote free choice.
    Prolife groups seem more serious about funding alternatives to prevent abortion.

    The Nurturing Network is one program that offers better financial and educational/career options, and less coercive choices for women.

    Such freedom depends on economic and social resources and choices.
    It cannot be legislated by laws.

    The rights and freedoms already exist and need not be legislated to be protected.
    That just requires respect for rights and freedoms, including and especially the
    right not to be raped or abused sexually in the first place!

    If you get rid of rape and abuse you will get rid of unwanted pregnancy and abortion.
    That is where you will free women, and all others, from coercion and abuse, not by
    imposing more laws but respecting the laws rights and freedoms we already have.
