Although I think that the new abortion restrictions in Texas are unscientific and completely lacking in compassion, I have to admit that I am also extremely uncomfortable with Paxton Smith's basic argument against them that abortion should be allowed because getting pregnant could mess up her career plans. It stinks of entitlement and a complete refusal to accept responsibility for one's own life choices.
Perhaps, she should be campaigning for the right of a woman to realise her career potential at the same time as being a parent of young children. Certainly, the world needs to make things a lot easier for women to do both (and men as well for that matter). She could also consider only having sex if she is prepared to live with the possible consequences, both the physical and emotional ones.
