Great idea, but since politicians are the ones making the rules, it could never happen.
You got that right!
Of course, we should all bear the consequences of our actions.
The War on Drugs comes to mind.

Excellent idea!
I'm afraid you overestimate the integrity of most left-wing feminists.
I agree with you that a child is a separate human being from its mother; however, it relies on her body for sustenance. The mother should have the right to withdraw her body's support if she wishes, but that doesn't imply that she or anyone else has a right to actively destroy the embryo or fetus. If it can survive outside her body, then it should be allowed the chance to do so. And if there are people willing to pay for the extraordinary measures that might be needed to help a very premature baby to survive, so much the better. All that said, the thought of abortion, particularly during the 2nd and 3rd trimester, is very disturbing to me. I salute you in your efforts to persuade women to choose other options.
You are right. Many doctors are reluctant to prescribe pain-killers in sufficient quantities to help those in excruciating agony. If I or my loved ones end up in such a state, I would hope that a doctor-assisted death would be an option.

You are so right! It is my understanding that most of the 9/11 terrorists were Saudis, yet we didn't even give them a harsh talking-to never mind invade their country.
