A persons right to choose should be looked at through the understanding and history of the eugenics movement which was inherrently racisist and a matter of class structure.

Here's another article referencing previous information about abortion laws in the U.S. The surprising history of abortion in the United States

"...

So how did we get here?
With the help of Reagan, author of "When Abortion Was a Crime," and the nonprofit Our Bodies Ourselves, we set out to learn what abortion was like in America before 1973.
What we found was full of surprises.

The view from centuries ago

In the 18th century and until about 1880, abortions were allowed under common law and widely practiced. They were illegal only after "quickening," the highly subjective term used to describe when pregnant women could feel the fetus moving, Reagan said.
"At conception and the earliest stage of pregnancy, before quickening, no one believed that a human life existed; not even the Catholic Church took this view," Reagan wrote. "Rather, the popular ethic regarding abortion and common law were grounded in the female experience of their own bodies."
Though it is considered taboo in Christian traditions, until the mid-19th century, "the Catholic Church implicitly accepted early abortions prior to ensoulment," she explained. "Not until 1869, at about the same time that abortion became politicized in this country, did the church condemn abortion; in 1895, it condemned therapeutic abortion," meaning procedures to save a woman's life.
Abortions would become criminalized by 1880, except when necessary to save a woman's life, not at the urging of social or religious conservatives but under pressure from the medical establishment -- and the very organization that today speaks out in support of abortion access, Reagan explained...."

Abortion clinic protests should be allowed even if women's dignity hurt: lawyer 

Anti-abortion campaigners tell the high court that safe zones breach their political freedom

Anti-abortion campaigners should be allowed to protest outside clinics, even if it harms the dignity of women entering the clinics or hurts their feelings, lawyers for anti-abortion protesters argued today.
On Tuesday the high court held a hearing into anti-abortion campaigners’ constitutional challenge against Tasmanian and Victorian laws prohibiting protests in “safe zones” outside abortion clinics.
Guy Reynolds, the counsel for the protesters, Kathleen Clubb and Graham Preston, argued for a radical expansion of the implied freedom of political communication to include a general right to protest in public places.
Reynolds began his case with criticism of Tasmania’s “eye-catching” safe zone law – which he said was a “straight up” ban on protest in relation to a particular topic – abortion – which is “often political in nature”

On religionists, Rick Warren, and other religious cults groups why do people look down instead of  look up (to the future)?

My understanding is religionists believe  heaven is in the stars..

Apparently I'm wrong about this.

Comment by Chris on September 11, 2018 at 2:47

I often wonder if religionists  opposed to  birth control - including abortion also oppose any kind of birth control that includes the use of condoms, IUD's,  snipping (surgical means)  Vas Defferens, or Fallopian tubes to prevent "Conception" and etcetera.

With them is anal intercourse between a man and a woman okay?

That in my opinion is disgusting.

What is it with pro-creationists who want more people to have babies while denying the mother and child the care needed.

At the same time it appears the same thought goes into mass incarciation and the death penalty.

I don't get it.

Argentinians formally leave Catholic church over stance on abortion

More than 3,700 people submit apostasy requests in protest against anti-abortion campaign

Thousands of Argentinians – most of them women – have started formal proceedings to abandon the Catholic church, in protest of the church’s campaign against efforts to legalise abortion in the country.
In the month since the country's senate voted to maintain a ban on almost all abortions, more than 3,700 people have submitted apostasy applications to the Argentinian synod, according to César Rosenstein, a lawyer and founding member of the Argentinian Coalition for a Lay State.
The figure is a tiny percentage of Argentina’s population of 44 million, but apostasy activists say that the movement’s growing profile indicates a cultural shift in what has always been an overwhelmingly Catholic nation.

I read the book years ago.

I liked the 90s film The Handmaids Tale with Natasha Richardson, much closer to the book. Like you I've not seen the recent TV series.

Comment by Mrs.B on July 29, 2018 at 16:08

The show is very popular, but I've never watched. The ads kind of bother me, so I won't.
