Those who may have thought that abortion was no longer a debate to be had in America have been sadly disabused. State after state is passing unworkable extreme laws the lawmakers have no intention of putting into practice. No abortion once a foetal heartbeat is detectable, 99 years in prison for any doctor who performs an abortion. No abortion in cases of rape or incest. It's mind-boggling. I am the last person to wish ill on the lawmakers or their families, but I wonder how they would react if it was an 11-year old girl in Terri Collins' family who became pregnant by her rapist, or a doctor in her family who was given a whole-life term for carrying out a termination on that little girl? Just as all politics these days seems to be utterly polarised and sensible compromises cannot be reached, the abortion issue too is being treated like that. Where are the sensible adults?
