good point on the "social conservative" aspect.
i'm an atheist , but i find the "pro-choice" arguments to be abhorrent. except of the case of rape or incest, if you make yourself pregnant , then you dont have the right to kill that kid. thats my take on it. there has to be a stronger option or promotion of allowing us to adopt these kids , if the girl or woman doesnt want them.
It used to be, here in the US, we had one of the best child welfare systems in the world, where teenage and unwanted pregnancies were efficiently handled and the babies quickly, often before birth, found homes with parents looking to adopt.
The problem now, on both sides of the pond, is that we've raised a generation or two of adults who don't know what to do with children, who are taught not to have them, and that they are a "burden" and intrinsically undesirable. So, you have narcissistic singles and couples who lavish money and attention on pets, projecting upon them the attributes of human beings, all to fill that unseen void. Of course, those who do decide to have them, having lost a tradition of child-rearing, try to treat them like little adults and then scratch their heads when it blows up in their face.
Worldwide, particularly in the West, many tens, maybe hundreds of millions have been aborted. It's a silent genocide and part of the reason for Europe's demographic implosion.
