SHARON OSBOURNE was still so angry with her mother for pressuring her into an abortion, she refused to attend her funeral.

Osbourne - the wife of rocker OZZY - became pregnant when she was 17 but her mother HOPE ARDON convinced her to undergo a termination.

Following the abortion the rock manager-turned talent show judge suffered complications which led to three miscarriages, and she still blames her mother - who died in 1998.

She says, "I didn't get on with my mother. I didn't want to see her alive so why would I want to see her buried?"

What's your point, that we should outlaw abortion because it's possible that someone, somewhere, might be forced into having one?

The same could be said about any activity you could think of.

Another example of anti-choice people trying to control women's bodies, yes. Of course Ms. Osborne should be angry with her mom, just as much as if her mom had tried to prevent her from obtaining an abortions. Anti-choicers desire to control women is disgusting.

That's terrible. The whole point of being pro-choice is to be pro-choice. It's unethical to force a woman either way.

From the article: she "became pregnant when she was 17 but her mother HOPE ARDON convinced her to undergo a termination."

"Convincing" someone is a long way from "forcing" someone.

And her mother died in 1998 -- I'm not sure how Ms. Ozborne not attending her mother's funeral consitutes "news" today.

I doubt it is legal to force someone, even your own minor daughter, to have an abortion, but I'm not sure about this. Does anybody know?

So when an uncle rapes his neice...he's not "forcing her" if she spreads her legs and doesn't scream?
