Re: Democratic seeks to ban vasectomies
My general standard is, If you chose to have sex, you accepted the risk of getting pregnant.
If you chose to have sex with an irresponsible trophy collector, than you also chose single parenthood.
THAT however, is applied in a broad spectrum.
I think it is impossible to outlaw abortion, because while it is easy to say that and cover everyone with a general blanket statement, there are so many different situations where it is NOT proper to bring a child into and adoption although an option, isn't always the best solution. There are situations where health of the mother or fetus are a big concern or risk, or situations like the 12yr old rape victim who's parents had to drive her out of state to get her an abortion a few years ago, or a woman who finds herself pregnant and homeless, or a woman struggling to get by has sex with her monogamous boyfriend and cannot afford to have a child.
There's just too much gray area to blanket everyone, and I know I am always there to drive someone who has chosen the abortion route.
Do I support carelessly sleeping around unprotectedly or not even sleeping around, just having regular unprotected sex, doing nothing to prevent and then aborting as a means of birth control? No.
I also think it is ludicrous for a man to sue a woman to carry a baby full term when there are plenty of willing baby machines ready to reproduce out there for him to chose from.
But there is no way to add discretion to abortion laws. I can't tell you if I would or would not have one, but there is no way it should not be available in safe, professional setting.
