    I was surprised that the abortion went ahead seeing as the 3rd test (the definitive one, it seems) hadn't been finished, or at least, the results hadn't come back. Kind of defeats the purpose of doing that test to an extent. Bearing in mind this was after the 12-week limit so a reason needed to be given, and I'm surprised the results from the first two tests were considered sufficient.

    I had forgotten all about this subject on Current Affairs until I saw the latest post from The Fly and Osarun.
    And as I read through the posts I came upon this one.
    In any event, I wonder if you have been following the news stories from America this week?
    As it happened the state of Alabama followed Georgia in rejecting abortion, although they (Alabama) have gone all out and rejected all abortion even in the case of rape and incest.
    Missouri followed suit and currently there are 16 states which have rejected abortion.
    For the record, I do not believe in abortion, but having said that I would find it really difficult to disagree with anyone seeking an abortion in the case of rape or incest.

    The country, it is safe to say, is headed on a collision course on the subject of abortion and, shock of all shocks, the Democrats are in uproar that anyone, let alone a whole state, would oppose abortion.
    But the consensus of opinion in America points back to that decision by and subsequent celebrations of the New York State Legislature to grant abortions even after the baby has been born (remember I got laughed off the stage when I brought it up a few months ago).

    The link below touches on the events of the week.
