Have you seen the online request by a Minnesota couple asking you to vote on whether they should get an abortion or not? Apparently they've had a history or miscarriages. They are rumored to be getting lots of votes on their site. Do you think they should make such a decision by popular opinion?

I think it is just looking for their 15 mins. No matter what everyone votes they STILL have to decide if they are going with popular opinion or not. Having a poll does not get them out of making a

I thought we'd already discussed this here. But just as an odd side note, inside the article was a link to an ad. The ad says "1 trick of a tiny belly: Cut down a bit of your belly every day by using this 1 weird old tip." And there's a line drawing of a woman whose stomach, looking quite pregnant, shrinks down to nothing. Imagine the inflection in my voice when I say, "Irony!!!"

Disturbing. I don't think it does the pro-life/anti-choice movement any favors to stoop to a hoax like this. a rep from NARAL said, and I agree, that it really demeans the women who have to make this very difficult decision in real life.

Excellent point, Spencer. It does take away a lot from the hard decision to be made by many.

Sound like they're trying for their own reality series or something. Definitely seeking something other than sound, professional counseling...
