Abortion

I start this conversation with this caveat : As a gay man I have never felt I had a say in the abortion debate because I thought a) I will probably never a girl pregnant, and b) a woman's body is her own property and matter. I wouldn't want anyone telling me how I should run my body, unless it there was a major health concern at issue. I don't like the killing of a living thing but it's not my right to judge. But abortion, it seems is making a comeback. Lots of states are trying to severely limit access to abortion, or criminalize it out right. In fact I think North Dakota has outlawed it. And some back alley quack in Philly was performing late term abortion( or alleged late term abortions) in the worst and most unclean way. It would have been cleaner to do it in the bathroom in " Trainspotting". Now he is on trial. And should the morning after pill be available to my thirteen year old niece? Or will that access lead to fewer abortions or more randy sex. It seems that this culture is still confused about a woman's equality and her sexual repercussions . Women carry a greater burden having sex. Both from a physical strength point of view and an after effects one. Why on earth would a free country entertain the notion that you can control a woman's body,and ultimately her sexual desire, if you close off a safe exit plan? And rich woman in America, as early as the 1800's, were able to get safe, clean abortions. There is also a class problem underneath the bigger question. But I want to hear your thoughts about abortion. What do you think?
