Question of the Week #51: Women

Question of the Week #51: Women

The Pro-Life position is a win-lose scenario (baby wins). The Pro-Choice position is also a win-lose scenario (woman wins). What would a win-win scenario, a third alternative, look like for this women’s issue?

My two cents (but please share yours):

The money spent by Pro-Life and Pro-Choice groups might be better spent on finding a third alternative.


  1. I don’t think of pro choice as win/lose. I am adamantly pro choice but I would never choose to have an abortion. I just want your right to choose to be yours. I can’t imagine any other choice. but that’s just me.

    • Thank you so much for sharing your view, Louise. For issues like this, I tend to look for additional options. Cheers, Ashley

  2. I’m thinking the choice could or should come before conception, with more effective, safe birth control. The controlling side of me says mandatory birth control until you’ve finished your course in child rearing. Yes, classes so you can do a better job of raising a child instead of parking them in front of the television.

    • I agree with you, Mona, on both the need for readily available and improved prevention and child-rearing classes. Cheers, Ashley

  3. I’m with MonaKarel – prevent the need, with better availability of and education on birth control – then no one has to lose. The woman wins, and this is no child.

    • Hi Jennette, You’re right. It’s always better to prevent a problem. But I’m also thinking about what technologies would be needed to cobble together a win-win even if pregnancy occurs. The pieces would probably need to come from the medical community, not the world of lawyers. Cheers, Ashley
