    Nothing new in what I've just said, and I don't doubt you will hasten to misinterpret it as you have done before.

    But I've always said that enforced pregnancy is a breach of a woman's human rights. That's because it leads to people like you proposing that raped teenagers may be restrained against their will to force them to continue a pregnancy.

    That you don't even realize just how revolting that idea is to normal people merely indicates how far removed your worldview is from that of normal people.
    If you view “enforced pregnancy” as a breach of human rights then you must support abortion without restriction in regard to term limit or reason.

    We're getting back into antichoice cray cray now! Most abortions happen in the first trimester. The later ones are down to FFA, not women and girls waiting 30 weeks before deciding they don't want to be pregnant anymore.
    All the world's a stage... That we're just going through.

    But the ‘pro-choice/human right not to be pregnant’ view is that the choice should be available for the duration of the pregnancy.

    I wouldn't be concerned too much about the O'Taliban. Their days on this issue even around abortion clinics are numbered now.

    I note an article in the Guardian today on the 22 of the 26 counties being covered as regards GP referrals on abortion. The GP featured in the article, who is one of the 220 who have signed up openly to the list received a call from another GP who isn't on the public list and handled a request for the abortifacient pill for the aforementioned and their patient.

    It'll take a short while for the wariness around the village priest and the creaky O'Taliban in Ballygokandahar to dissipate and then the O'Taliban can be left to chew on their pap in the corner, having lost their grip with contraception, divorce, gay marriage and abortion- their Four Horsemen of de-de-de 'Pocalypse.

    "The vasectomy itself was physically close to painless. We made small talk throughout but it was impossible not to think about what was happening. I’m glad I won’t ever have to do it again. It was over in 15 minutes – job done!

    "I drove home and spent a quiet evening relaxing. Those of you with young children will know what a rare luxury that is. I was extremely careful in the following days and took pain relief now and again but there was no real pain.

    "After a week I was back to normal. The only side effect was that I could now legitimately be described as harmless. The procedure wasn’t nearly as big a deal as I had built it up to be and I have absolutely no regrets.

    "Vasectomy Ireland quotes a price of €450 for a ‘no-scalpel vasectomy’. This compares favourably to the alternatives. Most health insurance policies don’t cover vasectomy, which is hard to understand given how much a vasectomy could save them financially.

    Opinion: I was always adamant I'd never have the snip ... but I did

    "SAME-SEX COUPLES will be able to use the label ‘parent’ on birth certificates of their children under new legislation approved by government.

    "Social Protection Minister Regina Doherty said the changes will resolve a number of difficulties in the registration of donor assisted births and will be brought forward as a priority."...more

    Yep. It's a woman hating, antichoice myth that women wait for months into a pregnancy before they choose to end it.

    You still don’t seem to understand. You cannot proclaim your support for unrestricted choice, and then argue in your defense ‘sure it’ll never happen’.

    Off-topic, though probably from the same agenda, an agenda that ignores or denies reality!
