Scandinavia needs all the babies it can get IIRC.

No Europe has such restrictions because it is socially advanced. activities detrimental to society may be regulated for public good, this is not controversial.

:lol:


Wait... are you being serious?

Why do people think Europe is so enlightened?

I never understood that, even after spending time there.

It's a cool place but it has its backward attitudes.

Dead serious. I like Frances abortion laws in particular.

I am not opposed to abortion to the point of wanting to ban it, but American pro-abortion advocates have made it to where in many cases abortion doctors can operate freely, you need more licenses to operate a tattoo parlour in my state then an abortion clinic

Liberalism is in full retreat in Europe, due I think more to poor execution than bad theory.

I guess Americans always look at Europe and imagine every one of its countries are the same - well. They're not
.



There are 50 states in the USA and some of them have very different attitudes about lots of issues.

Coincidentally Europe has 50 countries with lots of different attitudes also.
