The Abortion Polemic

Well, whew, I'm exhausted after reading this raging debate about what must, ought to or may happen to a woman when she chooses abortion over bringing another human life into this swirling mass of humanity.

It seems to me that, in these rhetorical polemics, Woman is reduced to Object. As if half the human race hasn't the capacity to decide for itself.

Perhaps men and women who engage in these discussions were better to spend their time lobbying for research funds to finalize a more effective male contraceptive.

I am reminded, again and again when this topic comes up, how often women are seen and treated as some thing others must manipulate and control.
