I find the notion that a womans rights should never be taken away to be absurd. Peoples rights are taken away all the time: society has deemed many things unacceptable and parliament has legislated accordingly. Women cant do whatever they want now. They cant walk down the the street nude, cant leave their baby in a car in 40 degree heat, cant pay a surrogate to carry a baby for them, can't ask someone to help them commit suicide...
I don't think an act involving a woman's body should mean a free pass to do whatever. As with other things, if society deems something to be past the point of acceptable, then parliament should be able to legislate against it.
I acknowledge however that despite my own personal views at the moment there isn't enough public support to ban abortion. I think I was disagreeing with the reasoning behind the argument if that makes sense.
- no offense intended!
