Well, yesterday's comment board turned into another free-for-all, and if anyone's feelings were hurt, I apologize. Emotions were running high. Just a few parting thoughts, and then I'm moving on to other pressing issues:
To anyone who is contemplating an abortion right now, please read this, from "Journal of an Insomniac". It is not a display of bloody pictures. It is simply a touching tribute to a birth mother who chose life.
Gabby said something yesterday which stuck with me. She thinks this discussion is best left for another time, because anyone seen opposing abortion is looked on as a religious zealot, and in this fragile government the subject is taboo.
I agree that the Harper government has its hands tied on this one. Therefore the only thing we can do is voice our concerns to M.P.'s from other parties who may be open enough to truly listen to another point of view. Of course, even if Parliament changed the law, the Supreme Court would likely strike it down anyway, so this may be all for nothing.
That is the state of democracy in Canada.
