Indeed, VanIsle, try telling that to prolife, religious right nuts in this forum (Anna and several others). They know that a fetus is a human being since conception, that any woman who gets an abortion deserves to be put in prison for life (the current penalty for murder) and that is that.
Get a grip, Peewee. If you think I am a religious right nit, then you really need years of therapy about your problem. No, I don't think people need to be put in prison for murder. Find a post where I said that. You are a straight out and out LIAR. I stated my stand on abortion and you read it. I think the ONLY reason for abortion is for a good medical reason, no other is reasonable. The alternatives to using abortion as birth control, being afraid of the responsibilities of parenthood, afraid of how one would look, money problems, is NOT abortion, it is education, contraception, and adoption.
Bringing these children into the world is just wrong.
Bringing any child in the world that mother doesnít want is wrong. And since science and the law does not consider a fetus to be a human being, that is (and shod be permitted).
Wrong again. Science is of the opinion currently that fetuses are human. PROVE DIFFERENTLY. Find info and links that counter the ones I provided. You can't, because there are none from reputable scientists.

Not only that, but sometimes a woman is not ready to have a child for economic, educational, personal reasons etc. That should be her choice. And most Canadians do agree with at. It is only the religious right nuts, Alberta conservatives (this forum seems to be full of them) who claim otherwise.[/quote]Look at the demographics indicated in Kreskins "Where do you live" poll. It sure isn't overloaded with Albertans. You are mistaken again. And abortion is the last resort women should take. The first is not to have a child in the first place. The second is adoption or have a relative take the responsibility.
