Optimist – Changing Attitudes More Important Than Political Posturing

A survey reported in today

  • maca

    “Around 12pc say that a woman should be able to choose abortion if she is not married and 9pc say it is acceptable for a couple who simply cannot afford another child”

    I wonder how the questions were asked?
    Many use the silly example of the 14 yr old who is raped and gets pregnant.

    It’s the argument that’s silly in my opinion Davros, not the act itself obviously. It’s the classic example used in pro-abortion arguments.
    That’s why i asked how the questions were put by the researchers.

  • Davros

    It’s a terribly difficult issue.

  • maca

    It is certainly, with valid arguments on both sides.
