Fiona says she thinks abortion should be legal. I have a feeling this will get quite emotive and probably personal judging by those in the Blogosphere who are against abortion and those who are keen supporters of the right to bodily integrity. Fiona also seems to lay down a challenge:
I have yet to hear a rational, non-emotional and non-theological argument against legalising abortion in Ireland.
I’ll definitely be tuned into this one because I think it is going to be topical for a long while in Ireland and seems far more emotive than the divorce debate ever was.
Edit: Forgot to mention that from my blinkered view of this I have never seen any debate about how to prevent unwanted pregnancies and how to create a society where unwanted pregnancies is a rare thing. There’s the Crisis Pregnancy Agency but they seem to also try and “help” women to change their mind about having an abortion. What do pro-choice people say about a group like this? Is it a front or a genuine organisation?
