    And there's the rub, because liberals tend to broadly define "health risks" to include the mother's emotional and mental health, which in many cases amounts to nothing more than the typical distress a woman might feel if she didn't intend to become pregnant.

    Yeah, at least here in the states most want to see abortion further restricted than it is now, although for some odd reason the MSM always buries or completely spikes that. Meanwhile, on the left, they are racing to remove every conceivable limitation including legalizing abortion right up to the moment of birth (and then wildly celebrating it where they've succeeded) -- and even in some cases after the mother has given birth.

    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    Those who characterise the opposite point of view as being that abortions should always or never be allowed are arguing against the extremes, not the majority. Possibly because such arguments are much easier than thinking.

    I don't think for a moment that that is true. It certainly isn't true of the liberals who post here.

    But it is an excellent example of the characterisation to extremes I referred to.
