Subject: RE: BS: Abortion: Here we go PART 2
Oh, we can't do forced contraception, not and remain a free society. My point was meant to state that *since* we can't and won't take charge in that way (we can't even agree on universal contraception education), then abortion *will* remain with us in one form or another. As to why I even considered such an idea, well, I read too much science fiction. Would I really help implement something like that? I doubt it. But many SF stories talk about societies where parents must apply for a license to have a child, with financial penalties if you choose to ignore it. I've always been intrigued by that.
