Thread Name: BS: Roe vs Wade ByPass Effort
Subject: RE: BS: Roe vs Wade ByPass Effort
We have a local "pregnancy center", really a right-to-life organization, which publicises their promise to help women find forgiveness if they have sinned by having an abortion. With material like that around, it could be easy read the statement "abortion is bad" as "having an abortion is an evil thing to do".

One thought regarding Steve's stance, and that would be in regard to pregnancy from rape. As Steve noted some time back, the morning-after pill should be made available immediately; but there will be instances, if only when a traumitised woman does not bring herself to report a rape promptly, when that doesn't work out. I'm just thinking that, in that or other possible extenuating circumstances, it may not even be appropriate to say that the abortion itself is "bad"

This may be considered to be "straining at a gnat"; Steve's position is well stated and I respect it.
