So much is expected of the New Man - that he be involved in the pregnancy, in labour, in the birthing process, in the nurturing of the new baby - is it unreasonable to expect that he might want a degree of involvement in the death sentence too? Wouldn't we brand this particular father an uncaring monster if he simply stood aside and said, "Yes, let it die"? I sympathise with the powerlessness he must feel.
I am a happy mother who would hate to live in a country where abortion was not available to women in need - but I cannot justify the use of abortion as a means of birth control. Mrs Kelly insists that no one can force her to have a child. Did anyone force her to conceive it?
