On The fence

I used to be on the fence on the abortion issue. Both sides were convincing. The only way out I could see would be technology to reduce the need for abortion (e.g. completely reliable conception). Oddly, the pro-lifers also opposed contraception, sex education and condoms for sexually transmitted disease avoidance which I saw as pillars to obviate abortion. Further, the dishonesty, viciousness, self-righteousness, misleading terminology, misleading images, religious superstition and general irrationality of the pro-life forces convinced me I needed to fight their improper tactics. So I had to get off the fence to promote a nuanced rational debate.
