Re: What a bunch of BS!

Hugh, I know that this is your position, and I respect it, but I also respectfully disagree with it.

In my opinion, men have no business regulating what a woman can or can't do with her own body. No more than women can regulate what men can or can't do with their bodies. The bill that passed in Alabama (or was it Mississippi?) last week was particularly disturbing to me - 24 white men in a state that has an ethnically diverse population deciding what a woman could do.

This may come as a shock to some evangelicals, but men in America do not own women and have no God-given right to control them and tell them what to do. That concept is so 18th Century. Yes, it takes two to make a baby, and yes, the decision to have sex may have been made in the heat of the moment, but if the pregnancy was unexpected or unwanted (or unprevented), shouldn't most of the decision about what happens next belong to the party that's going to be doing all of the heavy lifting? Why does the guy who contributed maybe a couple of seconds to an impregnation that will take nine months for her to bring it to fruition get an equal vote - or any vote at all - on whether or not she should go through with it?
