All through this thread (and it has been a good one, and I thank you all, because I feel a bit more sane than usual by actually making an attempt to engage in a proper discussion) I still see this massive disconnect between the very real, indeed rather massive, risk of unwanted pregnancy, and the "pro-choice" posters' apparent appreciation of said risk. I know you're all clever people, I'm sure I could hit you over the head with statistics all day and I wouldn't be telling you anything you didn't already know, but somehow most people just don't react to this risk the same way I do.....I could give various reasons why but then I would be venturing in to such a broad, unprovable social/psychological analysis that it wouldn't help the debate in any way.
Suffice to say the whole thing is tinged with an almost surreal madness for me that things are the way they are. It's like....if I can't get absolutely off-my-head mad about literally tens of millions of abortions every year, how am I supposed to get mad about any of society's other ills? Does anyone on the other side of the debate at least understand what I mean?
