It's extremely likely medical scientists can find a method for doing guaranteed reversible (temporary) surgical sterilization. But I suppose no one wants to fund the necessary studies.Part of the UK was still living in the dark ages regarding abortion until it was dragged into the 21st. century. I believe that while it is in some cases a poor substitute for contraception, it is an individual choice and within reasonable limits, should be available and legal.
Very true. I've long said that if outlawed here, access to safe, legal abortions will shift from a matter of health care to one of economics. Those with the means will continue to have access.Of course, this is not an issue for those who can afford to fly for their procedures. Nothing real is ever an issue for them. Reality is for other people, those with the moxie to stay with it and not let it lapse. Ever.
What was the first?My beloved grandma Rose was a nurse in the 1920's. She did home care for women dying of botched abortions. She told me of all the other children the women had, watching Momma die. One hundred years ago, dying mothers with too many mouths to feed. She was one of a very few nurses who was able to accept these types of assignments. My Rose was a very strong woman. The day in 1973 when Roe became law we were walking together. She said it was the second best day ever.
