Abortion: A very touchy subject

I decided to add a Dutch and a German newspaper to my daily and/or weekly reads. They may help put national and international issues in perspective.

In the Netherland's where medical diagnosis for birth defects can be performed into the 20th week of pregnancy, late-term abortions is considered good public health.

The New York Times reports that the President of the United States wishes to grant more protection to health workers who resist performing abortions and an article in The Washington Post references speculation about pushing for a means to reduce the number of abortions as over-turning Roe vs. Wade seems unlikely.

I suppose that like gay marriage, I don't fully understand why so many believe it is their moral right to interfere with other people's choices.
