Faktrl is Best Pony
10th September 2007
It seems we can never go too long without bringing up this controversial topic. But given the events of the past week, it's perhaps more relevant now than ever. At least until the next ultra-conservative gets elected. It's the age old series of questions: Is a fetus a human being? Is abortion murder? Is it right to abort a fetus under certain conditions and wrong under others?
I included the above video just for a little bit of levity and maybe to get the conversation going. It's such a weighty decision as there are so many variables. The health of fetus or child, or whatever word you choose to define it, has to be considered, both short and long-term, as well as the health of the mother. Though I suppose the overall theme here is should the right to choose be a part of government sponsored healthcare?
