    While most reasonable people would agree that abortion should probably be limited to a certain time frame, say the first tri-mester or no more than the first 16 to 20 weeks, the problem we run into is that there are those who will not settle for that, and will push for no abortion under any circumstances. The Dominican Republic has laws like these and the result is not always a good thing.

    Because of a very bad law, not only did the fetus not make it, the mother also died. The good thing is that at least no abortion was performed.

    I have had this conversation with a few Catholic blokes I know, and they don't care if the girl would die, the abortion should not be allowed, no matter what.

    Not surprisingly, none of us get along.

    Another rape/abortion thread. Just as I predicted.

    You guys are too easy.

    And by the same token there are some who will not settle for that because setting any limits whatsoever "robs a woman of her right to chose".

    Flip side to your flip side. ;)

    So your friends are nutz.
    Not worth mentioning as your friends' views never make the mainstream argument except in cases like this when someone is attempting to paint the opposition as crazies.

    I wasn't attempting anything, just stating a fact that there are many who support this type of thinking. I don't agree with allowing abortions past a reasonable time either, but there are those who say it shouldn't make a difference. I don't agree with them either, but in many cases their concern is that by giving an inch, they could lose the battle completely. It happened in the Dominican Republic, so who is to say it could not happen here?

    And you’re ‘side’ is too inconsistent.

    I was referring to Noomi who is on record in support of abortion up to the moment of birth. Is THAT where we need to go in order to protect the precious right of a woman to chose? Especially when said woman has already proven a propensity to make bad choices?

    The issue boils down to abortion does it not? I stand by my prediction
