This week was the 35th anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade decision by the Supreme Court. This was a landmark decision and the anti-abortionists have been doing everything they can to erode it and eventually overturn it. Why oh why would they do that? Because so many of the anti-abortionists believe that abortion is such a horrible thing that it should never ever ever be allowed (to be frank, they sometimes sound like slightly saner versions of the no gay marriage contingent). I get it that they see it as a sin. However, it isn't a sin for everyone based on that person's belief structure (if you want to start legislating against things that are a sin for any religious group; we can say good-bye to BBQ ribs, cheeseburgers, shrimp cocktail, and plan to fast during Ramadan, keep strict kosher, etc.. I don't see that happening in this country too soon.
Now, I would love to see abortions be a rare thing. ( my logic )
Abortions should be RARE
but when they are performed they need to be SAFE, legal, and respectful
. Any woman who feels that she must have an abortion has enough issues that she is dealing with. Having random people spit on her is NOT a good thing (and that doesn't even talk about the women who are going to clinics to get pre-natal care and WANT their child but have to be preached to and reviled by the masses.
