I love "I don't want to get into an abortion debate" being a disclaimer on what is an abortion debate.


"if a woman can get out of all her responsibility by aborting the baby, the man should be able to get out of his responsibility by just walking away. yeah, maybe it's not the right thing to do, but then neither is aborting a baby. i don't know what the law should actually be in this situation, but i do know that i think the woman should take into account what the man wants to do. a lot of them don't."

The only people who need to have an opinion are the sperm donor and the egg donor.
Why does everyone else *care* so much about this? Why is this so endlessly debated? Why is it just assumed that this is *so* important?
The only person whos opinion will ever really impact my life (as long as the status quo remains and abortion is legal) is my partners.
None of these people are my partner.
Why should I care?

I SHOULDN'T
And I don't.


In other news, they're cancelling Allie McBeal.

People care about this because some of them want to make it illegal, of course, and because some people can't leave half an argument hanging in midair.

I read in todays paper that a bill passed the one of the houses banning abortion rights for minors and its waiting approval in the other house. (I forget which house, though. not sure if it's senate or reps)

Well that's just fucking excellent. Let's go back to the good old days of family unity, good old fashion values, and alleyway abortions!

It's an over reaction, but that's all I can think when the legislature starts taking steps to constrict Roe v. Wade.

Re:
Well, it's been rejected twice by whichever of the houses is dem controlled. So, with this third attempt, it's likely to get rejected again.

if fails
we all need to move to europe. or canadia.

Hmmm.. either one is looking like an *excellent* damned choice to me.

Re:
I've got my eyes on Canadia. It's soo much more affordable, and I live in Michigan so i'm only a few hours from it.

I would like to tie this all together by pointing out that Ally McBeal probably has insufficient body fat to get pregnant.
