Imagine a world where abortion was treated legally and morally according to its actual nature?
I tend to think that the implications of this are far too radical for it ever to come to be.
What do I mean? Outlawing abortion implies:
First, respect for life, and that would similarly entail a new understanding of war, euthanasia, sickness, old-age.
Second, it would also imply a new understanding of, and appreciation for, motherhood, with obviously corollaries for family life, work, child-rearing, education, and sex.
(The consideration of these things makes risible Elizabeth May's juxtaposition of 'economic greed' and the environment. What about the more important cost to human life that economic greed implies?)
In the end, abortion is about greed and selfishness. To outlaw abortion is to outlaw those two latter things. Impossible for men.
But we should dare to dream. Why else live?
There are no good people who believe in abortion. Addiction to the system is the height of folly, as Plato was perhaps the first to so famously point out. Today's heroes are tomorrow's criminals. How do I know that? Because abortion kills, and the living will judge.
