    But I would imagine you might be encouraged to verbally dissuade her from proceeding, using compassion, patience and understanding. That would be your duty. Though, judging from your posts, I suspect that you would have her do the direct opposite of what any Christian might wish her to do.

    That's your nature.
    No I'd be inclined to let my sister make her own decision as she is an adult woman. Its my job as her brother to support her whatever she decides.

    And if I look at it any other way she'll soon set me right. You haven't met her- on top of which she is a lawyer. Rather you than me, sunshine

    The Borg is quite an apt comment, IMHO.
    Who brainwashes them? I have heard pro-lifers argue for the Right to Life, but I have never heard them argue for the right to tell others what to do with their bodies.

    Ah. Thats good so. What happened that time when such groups attempted to remove a girls right to travel by applying for a High Court warrant to prevent her going to England for an abortion?

    Was that someone really weird in the 'prolife' movement that the rest have disassociated themselves from?

    Does she share your levels of intolerance and blind spots?

    What was the response you were looking for? I fear we may have disappointed you.

    Depends. I was just going to ask before we start our usual routine whether you intend to be a feminist in this debate (empowered women deciding their own lives) or catholic pro-lifer (stop the *************************- that's our baby)?

    I ask merely in order to save time.

    It was the police who were responsible for that intervention. The police do typically take an interest when they have evidence that someone is due to engage in illegal activity at home or abroad. In the area of abortion, the national authorities now have to respect the individuals freedom of movement and freedom to avail of services abroad.
