    This is getting ridiculous (energy prices)

    I have seen people insulating walls inside a house but I would worry about lost space inside and looking odd around doors and sockets sorry if already covered but . can you get external insulation, ie maybe putting something down then covering with hardie plank or something.

    Abortion, Roe v. Wade

    I think werewolf makes a good point. it WILL punish the poor more than the affluent. and it is absolutely true that some people are happy to make rules but then decide it does not apply to them (and we do not need to look far to see examples of that on our doorstep) your blasé comment about...

    Abortion, Roe v. Wade

    I can believe that............ however i know a couple of women who were (are AFAIK) supporting of the right to abortion in principle but fully admit once they were pregnant - even unplanned - they realised how much harder it would be to go through with hypothetically even if they were initially...

    Abortion, Roe v. Wade

    really? i am painting with a wide brush but IF i had £1000 to bet, i would suggest there are more men angry at the fact that they desperately do not want a child but feel trapped into having one and thus paying support than there are men who desperately want to have a baby but the mother...

    Abortion, Roe v. Wade

    I am give or take happy with the rules as they are (like i said personally I would make the final decision point a few weeks earlier unless medical exemptions) but in general, to me they are balanced, however given that adoption of new borns is a thing, and there are many many people desperate...

    Abortion, Roe v. Wade

    i would love a male pill... most of the women i talk to say they would never trust a man with it, but that is fair enough, i take one, they can take one, double bagged!. as for side effects..... maybe it is different for different people but most women i know who i am close enough to talk...

    Worried about the Queen

    indeed..i hope i have as good as innings as she has had.... when she goes she goes. I dont bear the royals any ill will, they probably bring in more money to the country than they cost us, but equally cest la vie. it still sticks in my craw an article in a news paper years ago about the queen...

    Abortion, Roe v. Wade

    I think the difference of opinion (and i could be wrong) comes down to what you consider life, vs the potential for life. you it would seem consider it to be the moment of fertilization? others consider it the moment of birth. I think the point of viability outside of the womb is the...

    Abortion, Roe v. Wade

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fUspLVStPbk yes it is a serious problem but i see no harm in keeping it friendly (and I cant be the only one who thought of this song in this thread ) ;)

    Abortion, Roe v. Wade

    it is a horrible truth that that should ever be a thing........... however surely if the worst was to happen to someone in that case surely the 1st thing they woudl do is take (multiple) morning after pills and make damn sure there are not 2 lines when they pee on a stick for the next few months...

    Abortion, Roe v. Wade

    I always agreed that legal abortion is not murder sorry if i was not clear. however I dont think that any moral society would change the law to allow incredibly late term abortions because that would be murder.... so i guess it is a chicken and egg scenario. you say it is not murder because...

    Abortion, Roe v. Wade

    fair enough..... but presumably it was the people qualified to do so who already came up with 24 weeks? as medicine gets more advanced if anything the notion of what is viable or not to be able to survive is imo more likely to go backwards not forwards so i would say if the law gets changed in...

    Abortion, Roe v. Wade

    actually right now it is!....... we are talking about the suggestion that it should be ok to abort a child at any point what so ever until it is born, which is currently against the law

    Abortion, Roe v. Wade

    out of curiosity how would you propose such an abortion was carried out, I mean from a practical point of view. I am no expert i would be interested to know if there are any actual medical doctors here for their view But you have a viable baby ready to be born, and the doctor has to "abort"...

    Abortion, Roe v. Wade

    not sure why only women should have a voice....... they may be carrying the child but the men have some input as well. I thought society was all about equality these days? Now you may well be right that this forum is skewed. That is surely just because overclockers (at a guess) happens to...

    Abortion, Roe v. Wade

    I am pro choice, 100% behind that... but pro choice until birth is simply a none starter. I mean, what doctor in their right mind would kill a baby which is fully formed and completely capable of surviving on its own, it is just that it has not popped out yet? I think the current UK limit of...
