All laws legislate morality Nimrod!

Not everyone takes parenthood so seriously or finds it as heavy a burden. This is seen at all stages, from mating practices through to the writing of wills. There are many unplanned pregnancies as well as planned pregnancies that don't materialize. In some cases, people adapt to the circumstances: people who have had to abort a child take greater precautions, those who cannot conceive adopt. In other cases people pursue a course of action, have more and more abortions or take fertility drugs according to the case. I would hope that all children would receive a parent's love, have access to opportunity and further us as a species. But not all people have children for the same reason, the world isn't fair and our species is divisive and undefined.
Is an abortion negligent homicide? Clear cut murder? Does it lead to an immoral and arbitrary race? Does it promote social stability and offer a recourse to an accident, a tragedy? Does it discourage responsibility or in itself a responsible act? Is it always so?
What are the ramifications of policies which permit abortion as compared to those which prohibit it as compared to those which enforce it? At what point do we allow some to dictate terms that the state would enforce on the rest? At what point is freedom permitted?
Some would like to dictate guidelines, imprison others and suggest that this is freedom. Either keep the child and raise it inadequately, have a back alley abortion with a rusty hanger and don't get caught, or get caught and go to prison. Thanks for your humble opinion. You may feel that you have the moral high ground and your liberty torches will supply a cleansing warmth as the the world burns. But you are insane.
There are many people who love to murder
other people. There are many people who like to eat human flesh.
There are many pedophiles
who love to have sex with children.
There are many humans who like to torture animals.
There are people who like to drive drunk.
It is hard to name any
law where someone isn't offended or not allowed to do something they wish they could do. It all depends on what kind of society we want to live in!
