I'm against abortion, too. So I have never had one. But it's not my choice. It's each woman's choice. And nobody has any right to make her do anything to "qualify" for it. It is LEGAL in this country. Period.
Why do so many men think that it's not a difficult decision? It's not like a woman just casually says; "Oh, I think I'll get an abortion today after my manicure." It is a VERY difficult decision. And making it harder on the woman is not going to do anything but cause undue emotional trauma. It's hard enough already to get an abortion, what with so few qualified doctors (who can blame them when they are used for target practice by the religiously deranged?) and with self-righteous jerks yelling at you as you go in the clinic (even if you're only there for a check-up you'll get yelled at because these idiots don't care). This is, plain and simply, a religious roadblock to womens health care. And we don't make laws according to religious dogma. This is about control. Men controlling women. It has always been about control. If you'd read my article, you'd know this.
You want lower abortion rates? Make birth control cheaper and easier to get. Teach sex education in the schools. Tell teens about the consequences of unprotected sex. Show them pictures of STD symptoms. But making abortion next to impossible to get will only give us more poverty and sickness and starvation and death. Because, while these horrible religious nuts care SO much about a fetus, they don't give a rat's arse what happens to an unwanted baby after it comes. Hypocrites.
