Subject: RE: Real story of Vin Garbutt & Cambridge
I didn't say that. I said that the ISSUE is one now used by the far right for their own political purposes. There is a debate to be had as to when abortion is appropriate. If that doesn't include the interests of the pregnant woman, who has the foetus actually inside her, it's not a real debate.
And yes, there is a debate about euthanasia, that pivots around the thorny issues of the possibility (probability) of people applying pressure to the old and sick, for their own convenience. And that has to be balanced against the interests of those unrelievably and painfully sick, or others who feel that their quality of life is irrepairably unbearable. It isn't black and white, but there are those who want to make it appear so.
