Turnout for pro-choice rally

pro choice protest

Gungahlin Al has sent in this photo of the pro-choice protest outside ACT Health this morning as advertised last week.

We note a lack of trucks and stopped traffic.

One can only hope the time rich catholics who usually protest there have found somewhere else to get there weekly social engagement.

What’s Your opinion?

Why are these people protesting, anyway?

Because of attitudes like yours.

They’re protesting against freedom of opinion then? Abortion as a form of retroactive contraception is morally distasteful at best, at worst the killing of a developing human being – and anyone has the right to think it’s disgusting and try to see that as few take place as possible. I’m not religious – I just find the whole business extremely unpleasant and in 99% of cases (rape and incest excluded), completely preventable (contraception, self control). I also believe that if you’re going to give women the “choice”, potential fathers should also be offered a form of “legal abortion” where they can sign away any financial responsibility (and hence any kind of legal access) to the child if they wish to.

Way to miss the point – they are remaining vigilant.

Pro choice to me should not be an attack on those who disagree with it, everyone is entitled to their own opinions.

It’s a difficult issue, but I agree with 2604 and darkfalz on this. Abortion should be available, but should be a last resort. I also agree that ‘pro-choice’ is a poor term, as the undeveloped child has no choice at all.
