I’m so pro-Abortion that I’d even allow a Woman couple of months after the baby is born to get rid of it.
Ok, that’s very facetious of me, but I just can’t tolerate people who feel they have some right to tell women what medical procedures they can or can’t have.
As far as I’m concerned, an abortion is a medical decision between the woman and the Dr doing it, it really has sweet bugger all to do with anyone else.
Yes, sure there are some Men who feel that as the impregnator of said women that they have some say over what happens, and they would be very wrong.
Chaps, let me spell it out. As a man, you only get a say once the woman has decided to keep it, and all you have at that stage is a deeply depressed acceptance of the decision to keep it and an even sadder agreement to meet the child support payments.
Welcome to the debt circle of life and wear a condom next time no matter how many times she tells you she’s on the pill.
News that some women however are not getting the easy ride through our ridiculous loophole of abortion legislation is proof that we need to seriously amend the current joke that is our abortion laws…
Hundreds of “not justified abortion” certificates were handed out to pregnant Kiwi women in 2016.
Even as the overall abortion rate has trended down since 2010, the number of women told their abortion would not be “justified” has remained steady.
Abortion is technically a crime in New Zealand. Two certified medical practitioners must deem the abortion medically necessary or justified for it to be legal, but in practice the law is routinely subverted by both doctors and patients.
Last year, 252 “not justified abortion” certificates were issued. Close to 1500 have been handed out this decade.
…this reeks of Christian Drs declining abortions under their ‘life-is-precious-even-the-embryonic-life- that-hasn’t-even-been-born-yet-praise-Christ’ mindset.
The current joke law claims that women have to be mentally disturbed by the pregnancy before they can get an abortion and these women then have to jump through this 2 dr approval crap before they can use the abortion loophole to get one.
Which when you think about it is bullshit.
If a woman wants an abortion, even for the most vain or selfish reasons imaginable – they should get their bloody abortion without needing to convince two drs of anything.
This is a medical procedure, and like any medical procedure, if you have given your consent in good faith and this is what you want, then you should bloody well get it.
As a man, I wouldn’t accept this patronising bullshit if I needed or wanted a medical procedure performed, so why the hell should our fellow sisters have to perform this degrading and condescending two step to get a medical procedure they want?
Men wouldn’t accept being treated like children, why should women accept it?
The law needs updating and it it needs to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. Unfortunately we have a God fearing Prime Minister who is the most socially conservative leader we’ve ever had, if National were serious about standing up for women’s rights, they would make this a priority.
