I just read a short bit on a web site called Bio-Edge about this news article and the report it refers to from Old Blighty, where it seems down is up and verse visa. The fellow mentioned that over there 98% of ladies who get their wombs hoovered do so to avoid the mental distress of giving birth and raising a kid. They are very kind in Blighty.
“I simply can’t bear the thought of having this around all that time and missing the Queen’s birthday, or Ascot and all those lovely hats.”
“Not a problem, Lady Snuffem. We’ll have this out of you in plenty of time for tea.”
The writer asks if the report means that now 98% of British abortions are illegal. Good question. Who’s lying to whom? And, what about the odd duck who does commit suicide, or feel bad for years about having had an abortion. Would she have felt as bad had the child been born and lived, and was living now? Is the stress of child rearing a good enough reason to have them all killed…or 98% of them anyway of all of them who are headed for the recycling center? Shhh! There are questions which politeness requires us not to ask.
Good Lord, it just occurred to me that may be the reason why the British have all of those fogs and mists and moors to wail upon. The whole place is neurasthenic.
It is encouraging to note that the doctors who have done the study seem to think that there is some stress accompanying the decision to end a pregnancy before a pregnancy ends. That may be, if the 98% number tells the truth. Of course it must tell the truth. Don’t we all know numbers don’t lie, because , well, who really wants to be pregnant?
“Oh, Dr. Slippenfall, Montague says we just cannot visit Majorca this summer if I am still preggers. There is such tension at home.”
“Now, now, Adelaide, I know Montague. His practice requires a rest every once in a while, and you do have that lovely little bulldog Chelsea.”
“Well, if you say so. There are all of those new things I bought which would just devastate me to leave behind.”
And, so, they will probably conclude and recommend that more should be done about this problem of unwanted pregnancy. The solution, since ending them seems to be about a guilt free as getting rid of the trash, will probably be to recommend more abortion.
That’s what I think will happen, anyway. Given the trend toward the death option over there from both ends of the average life span, I figure the place will be empty in about 50 years.
