I have been using my little sabbatical to do some gardening (good for the soul), reading, reflecting and celebrating various family milestones.
I have also been checking out other blogs, and even ventured over to the dark side at Calgary Grit, where I became entangled in a free-for-all against your truly. Actually, CG is a terrific site, but it does attract some strange characters. Well, they probably think that about me too.
Anyway, I have emerged from the lion's den unscathed and stronger for the experience.
One of the discussion topics that came up was abortion. This resulted from my voicing frustration that abortions are fully funded on demand, in Ontario, but not eye exams.
In the ultimate Liberal abdication of personal responsibility, I get this response:
“Abortions are not a predictable expense…It's common sense that most unplanned, accidental pregnancies should be terminated and delayed until later”.
I replied, “I think I can predict how to avoid needing one.”
RGM also chimed in:
“How do you reckon it is "common sense" that people shouldn't have to be held accountable and responsible for their actions?”
Our liberal society sees every unplanned pregnancy as a medical emergency that is somehow threatening to the mother. I guess she may not be able to afford that extra trip south if she has one more kid. It is handled with the same level of public funding and social reaction as a cancerous tumour.
The Conservative government can’t even mention this issue, because the feminists will be screaming from sea to sea to sea. We have bought into this lie and we are funding it to the exclusion of other important medical needs.
God bless Canada indeed.
