http://observer.guardian.co.uk/uk_news/story/0,,1697424,00.html Kind of blows the feminist arguments for abortion out of the water doest it?

Whats also worth noteing is that to an extent the article disproves the idea thats its only looney fundamentalists who are against abortion as only about 10-20% of brittans attend churches.

Not really, seeing as only 10% of the women wanted it outlawed according to the article. Fits rather nicely into the 10-20% that attend church. Actually, only 10% of the people wanting it outlawed is a huge majority of people that believe it should be legal. Which makes the title of the article incredibly misleading.
