I'm pro post-birth abortion, especially once the fetus is old enough to be religious and vote.
As to why it is legal? Because medical doctors love to kill babies, duh.
"A good martial artist does not become tense, but ready. Not thinking, yet not dreaming. Ready for whatever may come. When the opponent expands, I contract. And when he contracts, I expand. And when there is an opportunity, I do not hit, it hits all by itself." - Bruce Lee
It's not like the babies will know what hit them. What difference does it make if it's a ball of cells or if its already formed. It's going to be the same thing in a couple of months anyways.
After the appetiser, did they have a BaByQ?
Seriously now, I think the right way to tackle problems like these is to find some line that is logically and scientifically defined.
When we learn more about human consciousness, we'll be able to see when a baby 'starts up'. A cluster of cells is hardly a human any more than the cells swimming in my balls (literally) or the cells that fall off my skin when I scratch my arse.
With a clearly-defined and measurable biological limit, it's easy to draw a line and stick to it.
We could say: "Before an abortion, a consciousness test must be conducted. If the baby is not conscious then proceed. If it is, then early conglaturations, Mother."
Right now people on both sides of the abortion argument are stabbing in the dark (which is ironically how this whole mess got started). Everyone is making noise but nobody has anything definite to base a solution on.
TLDR: We need good, solid science and logic to solve the abortion problem.
There are so many couples out there that want children in the worst way.. To watch or hear of this makes them all the more saddened.
I can understand if it meant the life of the mother or it's a result of incest or a rape. But those are the ONLY reasons I would ever approve of a abortion.
It's not up to us though is it.. It's up to the person pregnant and the father of the baby. That is as it should be.. Once you take their rights away for their lives then others will follow suite to figure out what is good for your life.
It's very hard to draw that line and not over step personal rights.
Today I was reading a news story about a woman washing her baby, her mobile rang and she went away to chat on her mobile. 30 minutes later she came back to find her baby drowned. My point being is that parents are getting more stupid, people shouldn't be pressured to not have an abortion because the parent will fail and the kid would be brought into a loveless/careless world.
On a side note, it is a sad irony that religious people are among the strongest opponents of abortion, when their Holy Bible explains the famous story of how their patriarch, Abraham, prepared to stab and burn his son to death because he believed he heard the voice of god instructing him to do so.

The world of Britannia will be doubled in size. Each shard will contain a consent only PvP land and an enhanced PvP land. The current base map was used to create the new lands. The lands will be similar in physical structure, however, they will look different.
What sound does a baby in a blender make? I can't remember, I was too busy fapping.
