I am heartily sick and tired of this abortion business.
Do I have an opinion on the subject?
Of course I do.
What is it?
That’s none of your business. Nor is it anyone else’s business. And that’s the way it should be. What right have I got to make decisions about another person’s life? Why should I impose my beliefs on someone else’s life and death decisions? What right have politicians? Most of all, what right have the religious mob?
It is my opinion that the law should be kept out of the operating theatre. If a surgeon has to make a snap life or death decision, is it right that he has to first consult with some lawyer, barrister or judge first?
Today we see another example of the law interfering in someone’s health decisions. The law today condemned a woman to a lingering undignified and painful death and denied her a right to determine her own end. The judge can sit back in the smug knowledge that he has upheld the law, but is he going to assist her in her suffering? Is he going to take some of the burden of her pain? Is he going to share in her indignities?
When will they realise that it is often better to scrap a law rather than amend it?
