    an shall I say impassioned witness to his own views, I think we will be ok. If you did not see it - he spoke of being involved with a gal - they both knew it probably wouldn't work out long term.  She got pregnant. They mutually agreed to an abortion. He said - I was not ready and it wasn't the right relationship. He then spoke of his current wife and their child. And made a very interesting comment which - I think is accurate. When my wife and I went for the ultrasound and I saw our child, I questioned my stance on abortion. And I'm paraphrasing now.. But I think that I made the right decision in the past and it would be wrong to take that right away. 40 years! There is an entire couple of generations of people who have never known of abortion being illegal. Nobody WANTS a fucking abortion. Nobody. These fucking asshats who say that - deserve all the derision we can give them.

      in St. Louis, and am passionately pro-choice.  But when I was pregnant and when my partner and I saw the ultrasounds of our son, I too questioned abortion.  I didn't ever think it should be outlawed; but I understood how difficult it is for so many women to make the choice.  

      Sure, my son couldn't survive outside the womb at 12 weeks-- but you could see a little teeny beginning of a person in there, and that is powerful.  Yet abortion, should a woman or her partner/spouse need it, should be available.  Because we make a distinction between a "child", and an embryo, and a "baby" and a barely-formed nugget of a fetus, for a reason.  When people say, with joy and hope, "I'm pregnant!  I'm going to have a baby!"  that is one of the greatest blessings on this earth.  But if saying those same words brings with it a sense that one's life is shutting down, one's dreams are dying, or one's ability and means to care for that child is nonexistent, then it is the hallmark of a sane society to make it possible for such a pregnancy to be ended.  As far as is possible, every child should be a wanted child.

      That's one more thing to add to my long list of small problems. --my son, age 10

        Lots of problems in society today (reactionary political movements, etc.) are caused by former unwanted children.
