Just to be 100% clear, like houghtam I'm not "pro abortion" in any way, shape or form. But I do think the abortion rights issue is far more complex than many understand or are willing to admit. And in my post you're responding to I'm pointing out the blatant contradiction displayed by many of those who are so strongly against abortion rights but also strongly against any policy whose aim is to help those in need. Abortion is largely a socioeconomic issue.
