I don't understand why there's a discussion about abortion going on here. First, as I already said, there was no abortion-rights issue in Destiny
. The baby was inevitably going to die (as far as anyone knew at the time). It's not as if Ree's decision would've changed the baby's fate -- only the mother's fate was in question. I think that trying to cast this as an abortion-rights issue is profoundly misreading the facts of the case.
Second, this debate is about something that happened in Destiny
, so what is it doing in the thread for Over a Torrent Sea
? Aren't we getting off topic here?
