Macleans: It's time to talk about abortion

Says Andrew Coyne:

This is not about abortion. This is about democracy.

It is about how we decide things, and by what rules, and how we treat each other when we disagree. Indeed, it is about whether we are allowed to disagree; whether dissent on a contentious issue is respected, or even recognized; and whether, in the face of clear evidence over many years that an issue is not settled — that it was never settled — a democracy should be allowed at last to debate and decide it. Like a democracy.


When it comes to abortion, we are literally a lawless society: the only country in the developed world that does not regulate the practice in any way.

Pro-lifers, I believe this is called progress.
