    I find it hard to believe that you could have read it in that amount of time.  I could be wrong though.

    •  Your mother and ex are not (8+ / 0-)

      exactly motivated by the fetus if they can see exceptions.

      The real point is...why does what ANYONE think about what a woman does in the privacy of her own body is their business anyway?

      fine to debate what CHOICE your mother or ex would make, but their beliefs and opinions are no better than mine

        I said several times that I disagreed with them.  But that doesn't mean I shouldn't try to understand where they are coming from.

        And again, it is possible to be motivated by fetuses and be motivated by other considerations, and reach an accomodation within one's own head.

        then of course their beliefs are better than yours.  That goes without saying.

          ...achieve "better"?

          Some people would be better off not reading diaries they comment on, since they already have all the answers.

              ...I don't believe that 2 + 2 = 4. I know it. I don't believe that the speed of light is 300,000 km/sec. I know it. Such knowledge is true.

              I can't know an issue of morality is right. I can only believe it to be so. But my belief about such matters often clashes with the opposite beliefs of others. So how can a belief be true?

              Some people would be better off not reading diaries they comment on, since they already have all the answers.
