Okay, this is irritating on several counts:
1. Gratuitous use of the word "ironic." Ironic does not mean "bad" or "hypocritical," it means ironic. When a homeless advocate is mugged by a bum in San Francisco, that's ironic. When a government does something bad... it's just bad.
2. Subjects are different from slaves. Pick one, or just drop the hyperbole. You may be amazed to hear this, but some of us have read entire books on the subject and are not going to be persuaded by exclamation points.
3. Mindless anti-Americanism / Europhilism in assuming that because it's done differently in Europe we're somehow a step behind. Newsflash: one billion Muslims the world over think abortion is evil. Another billion Catholics agree.
Many congressman are talking about passing legislation which would put women in jail for having an abortion.
And I'm supposed to take your word for this? Post a link to an actual document that proves this. What are the extenuating circumstances? Which congressmen? Has it been put up for a vote yet, or is it just stuck in committee?
I don't understand your ramblings so I will just ignore you.
