Abortion Debate Poll

I am putting my current poll on hold for a while to deal with the more important question of Abortion. Some blogs are weighing on the issue at the moment. So I think a poll question to see where attitudes lie is important. So you shall she the poll on the right. Please vote. Edit:some people can not see it for some reason. So can get poll here as well. Edit: The debate is building up. by the if you click the here you can see the pole

Edit: BTW Extreme case would be life and death decided by doctors so would still not be pro-choice.

Edit: Just realised the problem with the poll had to do with Internet Explorer.I am using Firefox and the poll worked fine. But I just checked it in IE and there was the problem. Sorry about that all. Or maybe it is Bill Gates that should be sorry. Anyway I think that is fixed now. So go vote on the right. If you still can't see it tell me and also the browser you are using. Sorry about this again.

personelly i don't have very strong views. but i can't speak of the others.
maybe i will try to poke holes in everyones arguements :)

Cian said...

oh the luxury. Still even that role is essential in an argument such as this which reuires some grounding in reality every once in a while!

The abortion debate is an interesting one. The reference to the "desires of the mob" raises the question of when does law have force. In the case of the last abortion referendum the Government attempted to insert criminal legislation into the constitution, an untidy way of giving legislation constitutional status which didn't fit with the overall scheme of the Constitution as a series of very general principles (some woefully outdated) which require legislation and common law to flesh them out. An analogy with a criminal trial may be helpful. In a criminal case where a jury is split 50/50 there is an acquital. The country is split approximately 50/50 in relation to the abortion issue. Are we a hung jury? Is it the case therefore that laws which criminalise (or equally laws which provide for) abortion are in some sense not laws properly so called or not entitled to the force of law. Merely theorising here...just an idea.

"Desires of the mob" was referred to by Niall in his post.
