Comment 1: Loren M. Lambert - Something that the fanatical and over zealously religious do not understand is the great, incredible, and body and mind altering process that pregnancy and conception can have on a women. I, obviously, am not a woman, but am smart enough to realize that this is the case and it is not appropriate (even though I have my own opinion thereon) for me to interject myself between a doctor and a woman determining when to carry a child to term. Moreover, what such people don't consider is that genetics do affect personality, mind and body. While God may not make mistakes, people do and those mistakes imposed upon the parents and are passed on to children. This is not to say we directly should practice eugenics but it is to say we don't allow rapists to practice eugenics indirectly by using force to impregnate a woman against her will. Lastly what such people do not consider is the huge legal apparatus and cost that setting up an abortion review and prosecution system would invariably necessitate. Let that battle rage over ideas and morals but leave the current legal practices alone.
