Women in UK Want Abortion Restrictions!

Perhaps in my previous blog on abortion, I gave the subjects on the UK too little credit for seeing the evils of abortion. Today's Observer has come out with an interesting poll.

"A majority of women in Britain want the abortion laws to be tightened to make it harder, or impossible, for them to terminate a pregnancy.
Evidence of a widespread public demand for the government to further restrict women's right to have an abortion is revealed in a remarkable Observer opinion poll. The findings have reignited the highly-charged debate on abortion, and increased the pressure on Tony Blair to review the current time limits.
The survey by MORI shows that 47 per cent of women believe the legal limit for an abortion should be cut from its present 24 weeks, and another 10 per cent want the practice outlawed altogether. Among the population overall, reducing the upper limit was the preferred option backed by the largest proportion of respondents, 42 per cent, made up of a 36-47 per cent split among men and women."

There's hope for Europe yet!

Chas,

To further our discussion of common ground on this subject, I got an email that contained the following bullet item:

Preventing unintended pregnancies and reducing the need for abortion with our nationwide Prevention First campaign.

So I followed the link to:

Personal Freedom, Personal Responsibility: Prevention First

America has long been divided over abortion rights, but we believe all Americans should be able to agree that women, families, and this country would be better off if we could reduce the number of unintended pregnancies and the need for abortion. NARAL Pro-Choice America's Personal Freedom, Personal Responsibility: Prevention First initiative is designed to do just that.

The other thing that I discovered on the Internet is that there actually are some liberals in Texas!
