I’m not for or against abortion, I guess I stand somewhere along the lines of abortion being right when health is at risk. I’m not for it if it is being used as birth control. Having said that, I ask myself if I should even have an opinion on the subject. Its not an issue that a man can properly understand, and certainly not one he can experience. I will leave it at that. What troubles me is how quickly MacLauchlan jumped on the band wagon claiming his government have made the right decision. They are using the abortion issue as a political football and they just scored the winning goal. Its easy to understand the government timing in making the announcement when they did. Just a few days before the house sits again, we can be sure abortion will be top of the agenda. It is there to defect the more unpleasant questions awaiting answers. Abortion will be used as a smoke screen to avoid talking about E-Gaming, the deficit, HST increases and a host of other important and outstanding issues. Smoke screens are not transparency?so will anything really be achieved in this next sitting, not too likely the Liberals will be to busy patting themselves on the back. We Islanders must keep up the pressure to bring about electoral reform. Only when we achieve that will we get a government that has truly been elected by the people. Under this new law the first thing we must abort is the First Past The Post System.
God Bless and Keep reading
