wrong http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/dcp171778_410897.pdf Teen pregnancies are at its lowest level in 70 years The case is not solid, your link talks about live births among teenagers, not pregnancy. For a true picture we would need to factor in abortion (another thing sex education was supposed to redu...

Sex education in schools is an interesting topic. On paper it sounds like a good idea, we're told we have a problem in say teenage pregnancies and STDs and some bright spark says "lets have sex education in schools to deal with this problem". Ok. But then 10 years later these problems have...

Actually, multiple studies have shown that children in high-conflict marriages are *worse off* if their parents stay together rather than divorcing. I'll read the study properly later, from that though it all depends what high-conflict means, if it implies physical violence, that doesn't hurt my po...

Short post, I am busy with Christmas duties. JSM, Jesus Christ of the secular left. People abuse his words horribly. In practice today, his "harm" means two different things. For the person wishing to take liberties with it harm means what you imagine plus any kind of discomfort, unhappine...

Also Blair was elected three times, before Iraq he was one of the most popular leaders in British history. This is probably the finest argument against democracy one can make. Never underestimate the power of propaganda, lies and shady deals made with the media behind any major party today, not to ...

The death of the high street is very topical in the UK. That is something you can't blame on immigration. I don't recall blaming that on immigration. Economically there is a benefit to mass immigration. If you continue to stuff 300000 people a year into your economy, with nothing else going on to n...

Sure lots of the older folks don't speak english, but ALL the kids do. Good for the kids, but if any citizen seriously cannot speak English that signals to me the melting pot has failed dismally. How can someone integrate with their neighbours without a shared tongue? Sure the culture isn't static ...

^^^ Okay, the first half of your post is just nativist BS. The US has been extremely successful in assimilating immigrants and we'll continue to do so. The biggest immigrant group we have right now is hispanics. I live in a city comprised of about 30% 1st/2nd generation hispanics. I bolded the impo...

It makes me wonder about Trump's recent successes in the US. While I don't think he has a chance in hell of winning a general election, I do think this reveals some pretty disturbing aspects about American culture. Trump is definitely a flattering knave as far as I can tell... A knave he may be, bu...

I'm not nearly as sympathetic towards the child as I am the mother Sounds like you aren't falling in with the old "it isn't a child" brigade, refreshing to see, and if correct, it's the first time I have seen it in these threads. Edit: from the "pro abortion crowd" I should say....

Then whose call is it? If in all probability a child will be born with a condition that will lead to a short, painful life, who do we leave the decision up to? God? I don't believe there's a God or a divine being or beings, and neither do many others. Fate? No one? Both those answers are abdicating...

Would you willingly pay more in taxes to cover the influx of unwanted children? Absolutely. do you think all those babies are going to turn out well without work on someone else's part? Same as the disabled children, it's not our call to make. We can't run around killing children of lazy, disorgani...

So this is what it's really about, control over other people? This is really machiavellian, I doubt you'd care about the lives once they're born, as long as you get to be right and make others feel wrong. You're just another armchair ethicist and a vindictive one at that. Try to understand my viewp...

Please explain how you came to that conclusion.

That would result in an additional 185000 children born per year in the UK, that are not wanted and many who could not be given the required amount of care. Women would then be forced to travel, as they currently do from Northern Ireland, where it's illegal, to England for the procedure. I can't re...
