I've been reading the lounge area quite a bit lately and realize it's much more that just hobby talk. It's a place where we can find out how our fellow merbites think on certain subjects. I find this quite interesting in the psychological aspect. Can we determine some patterns in our way of thinking. For example; I would tend to assume that an overwelming majority of us are in favor of legalizing prostitution. Can this be said of other subjects ?
I propose a thread on the abortion issue. Do you believe in the womans right to choose or in the rights of the unborn child ?
To start this off, here's my opinion. I believe in choice. I am against bringing a child in this world if it is not the will of the parents. I also believe that the ultimate choice belongs to the women but the men should be consulted. If a mistake is made, the result should not be to go through the whole birth giving process. I know that many couples are looking to adopt these babies but the initial decision should not be imposed.
I accept and respect that others will not agree with my position on abortion. I also know that it is a very compliated social issue. So let's see what people are thinking and keep it clean.
