Comment #745533 by Peter Richardson

Michael O’Toole, a pro-life advocate , abuses pro-choice advocates as “bigots”. The irony amuses me. It would be an ad hominem argument, and therefore I will refrain from characterising extreme pro-life advocates as extremists.

The question I ask myself in this. If I were a woman and anticipating a medically problematical pregnancy would I prefer the clinicians to be bigoted in favour of the life of the mother in preference to the interests of the foetus?

    @ Peter Richardson
    you say – “Michael O’Toole, a pro-life advocate , abuses pro-choice advocates as “bigots”. ”
    untrue.
    O’Toole commented that those who advocated that ms Steen should not be allowed to express her views,were intolerant & bigots, & that’s his opinion of those who attempt to impose censorship on free debate on any subject.
    BTW O’Toole is not a member of any Pro Life group, or an “advocate” – not even an 2extreme advocate”
    he’s just an individual expressing his opinion on this forum.

    & BTW – O’Toole is very much Pro Choice.
    it’s just that his choice is to try & defend the life of unborn babies, against those who want abortion on demand in this state.
    the majority on this forum, including your goodself appear not to like his choice,
    or so, it appears to the “extremist” O’Toole.

    Well he’s merely firing back, to be honest. We all love ‘equality’ don’t we.
