    to terminate???

    in your perfect world, would women be ALLOWED to?

    •  Absolutely (0+ / 0-)

      But if, say, life was so starved of resources or safety that women felt unable/unwilling to complete a natural pregnancy then a community needs to get engaged, not in preventing the termination (a natural reaction to the environment) but in protecting the environment/persons.

    •  Agree. Being "compelled" has nothing to do with (3+ / 0-)

      it.  If it's an unwanted pregnancy, it's unwanted.  Creating a Utopian society where every woman who becomes pregnant would have no reason or "desire" to terminate the pregnancy is an argument used by the RW who seek to limit a woman's choice.

      •  Creating a utopian society is an impossible goal (0+ / 0-)

        ...so a false goal, illogical and unreasonable.

        Perhaps "compelled" is not the best word but used in the sense of a choice more weighty than, say, what to have for dinner or should I cut my hair, but sure, something one "wants or doesn't want".
