The UK is debating whether to lower its abortion limit from the current 24 weeks.
The Daily Mail reports today that Britain's leading abortion provider has conducted a study that shows - shock - abortion needs to remain legal throughout the first six months of pregnancy.
The reasons given indicate that most of England's late term aborting mothers are stupid:
- "For the majority of women taking part in the study, the signs and symptoms of pregnancy were not recognised until an advanced stage." [So the morning sickness, disappearing menstruation, extreme tiredness, breast tenderness and engorgement, widening girth, and increasing abdominal movements were due to... ?]
- "A minority of those taking part were aware of their pregnancy early on, but either 'in denial' or forced to change their minds about having the baby by a change of circumstances." [We are talking about babies who are viable or 2-3 weeks from viability. Mothers who "change theirs minds" at this point could terminate their pregnancies with liveborn results.]
- "One woman told how her partner beat her with a baseball bat when he discovered she was pregnant. It was at that point she decided not to have the child." [So she decided to treat her "child" worse than the way she was treated - to dismember and kill her or him - so as to maintain a baseball bat relationship with the guy who beat her?]
Now we have the "stupidity exception"?
There's a saying among shrinks "And the youngest kicks the cat." It's a reflection on family dynamics of dysfunction, where there's a pecking order and everybody gets abused, and the smallest and weakest just lashes out at the cat.
Where are women in the pecking order if we need a legal means for them to pass abuse on to somebody smaller and weaker?Posted by: Christina at July 12, 2005 8:39 PM
