    Take your "decent morals" and shove 'em where the sun don't shiiiine lol

    Who are you to dictate what decent morals are?! People like you are an embarassment to yourselves.
    I do not embarrass myself at all, who are you to say that my morals are not decent? You provide no argument against me, I doubt you even know that much about this debate! I answered a question with my viewpoint, I have not dictated to anyone, nor was my argument incorrect! I just wanted to avoid the usual answers given about being religious! I am entitled to my opinion, or should be, but it seems people like you just want nodding dogs to post on these boards!

    Here's an idea - try reading my post before you comment.

    I did not say your morals were wrong - I said that you have no right to say what decents morals are. Simple as.

    Now chill out dude...

    This worries me a bit - I'm pro choice - but surely abortion should remain a last resort, and not a replacement for contraception?

    Oh yeah, I managed to enrol to Gender, Law and Society and now every other criminologist I know is joining me since a lecturer sent out an email to her students. :rolleyes: I was after Gender, Punishment and Society but beggers can't be choosers.
    LGS is an interesting module, particularly the abortion part!

    But sadly I found it to be the most useless of the law modules I regret taking it tbh.

    Who's suggesting otherwise? It being a "last resort" (not that I agree that it has to be) doesn't mean you can't know who is offering the services until you need them.

    Well IMO advertising it makes it like any other product you see on the telly, it trivialises it a bit. As far as I'm aware pretty much everyone is aware of abortion and that they can always ask their GP for advice about where to get one if they need it.

    So therefore people will use it instead of contraception? Despite the fact that contraception is free and an abortion from this company costs up to £750? And if everyone knows about it already, how could it possibly make a difference to tell them again?

    Sadly people already do use abortion like it's a contraceptive method, I just worry that this will increase incidences of this. Oh well, you obviously think differently so whatever, agree to disagree I guess (:

    I doubt this will increase the incidence of that, considering that these abortions are expensive.

    I assume you're advocating the stance that people should not enforce their own morals on other people in a less educated manner? If so, the criminal law is full of morals that dictate how we should live our lives even when there are consenting parties - underaged sex, incest, bestiality perhaps etc.

    I was merely saying that the previous poster's 'holier than thou' self-righteous attitude was condescending and unnecessary. I said nothing about enforcing morals on other people in a less educated manner.

    It's not consent because the ruling elite deem it not so, just like children aged 15 cannot consent in the eyes of the law. Animals are often more satient than humans like to think, mainly because a sizeable proportion of human beings think the human race are special. As unsavoury as the act is I still question the illegality of it on the grounds supposedly given. And I'm a vegan so the last thing I want is a meat eater lecturing me on animal welfare all of a sudden, not you specifically btw.

    I've got used to people using one-liners like, "Who are you to impose your morals on other people?" when they rid of the idea in other situations, like underaged sex, cartoon child porn, incest, bestiality, violent computer games, illict drug usage etc.

    Surely even those who are pro-life would rather that if a woman is going to have an abortion, she knows where to go and has it done properly?
    If you're incapable of finding how to do it properly you shouldn't be having sex to start with.

    Well looking at this:

    http://healthmad.com/health/shocking...s-in-abortion/

    That fact shows that people need more education about contraception.. never mind abortion! It needs to be tackled EARLIER. After conception is far too late.

    I don't believe in abortion, so no; I don't think it should be shown.

    Even for those who do support the current situation, Marie Stopes are manipulating women to access something which can be provided by the NHS. (If they phone up for free advice, I have no doubt they'll pressure people into using it.)

    Marie Stopes also have dodgy links to Chinese government officials.
