On the topic of abstinence only education;  I think one should have the right to be taught about themselves in a merely instruction-manual sense.  Abstinence only education is tearing out those pages of the manual.  PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS AFTER "INSERT ROD P INTO SLOT V"!

I don't think they skip the consequences of sex, they just skip the "use contraceptives" part so that the consequences they teach are unavoidable.

I might be wrong, though.

The report also declares it Officially Messed Up when a woman is prosecuted for taking illegal drugs or drinking during her pregnancy, because it's her body and the state has no right to it.

This is a part that I have a problem with, because this directly affects the life of another unless the woman does go through with an actual abortion.

Well, if she's taking illegal drugs she's liable for that whether she's pregnant or not.  As far as drinking...well, I'm inclined to agree with you (provided you can prove that she knew she was pregnant; drinking during the first few weeks shouldn't be prosecuted), though perhaps simply taking the child away is sufficient punishment.

Yeah, helping create a retarded orphan is certainly a fitting punishment for their parent.

so you can decide to deflect the post based off one line

I see you've managed to bring it down to a quarter of a sentence.  Kudos.

As much as I feel a person's own reproduction is their own business, I could see a case made for an untrained or unassisted abortion being so risky to the child bearer's life that it could be criminal (in the same way that attempted suicide is prosecutable).
But...
Slippery slopes and whatnot.

Eh. I can say that something maybe shouldn't be illegal while also thinking that someone is a terrible fucking human being for doing it.

You can't really have it both ways.  Either she's fucking with another human being or she's fucking with her own body.

The corollary here is that if you make abortion illegal then you must also make it illegal to smoke or drink during pregnancy, since that would be giving alcohol/tobacco to a minor.

In the case of an abortion, there is never the life of another to affect. Drinking and doing drugs won't stop the thing from being born (well, not in all cases), but it will likely have an extreme negative impact on the thing's life after it is born.

A fetus is a living human organism. Whether you consider it a person is up to you, I guess, but it is alive.

Split.  If someone can find the earlier abortion thread (we DO have an earlier abortion thread, right? (anybody who says Jail gets a posting ban.)) feel free to merge it.

...eeugh.  Maybe we should have kept it split.

I just want to say I still stand by my "Anybody who is considering an abortion should immediately go out and get an abortion" stance.  Especially in light of OVERPOPULATION BEING THE NEW SCARY THING FOR HALLOWEEN WHOOOOO!
