Been kinda busy the last few days and havent had a chance to study the proposals or listen to the debate (It doesnt get much coverage in the media here) but I can never understand this "limited circumstances" concept.
Either a foetus is a baby (and deserves full protection) of it isint (In which case abortion should be available on an unlimied bases). I think some vauge notion of "limited circumstances" is a bit of a simplistic fudge by people (perhaps put off by the extremists on both sides of the debate) who dont really want to face up to the issue.
I think the fact that the politicians have put the issue on the back burner for so long shows that they just want the problem to go away too
