Nulono Decides:

Much Ado About Abortion

The Issue

A monstrous debate between pro-life and pro-choice groups has erupted after a high-profile case of a pregnant woman aborting her foetus because she 'didn't feel like it' hit the tabloids.

The Debate
  1. Johann Mombota, lawyer for the woman known only as Miss X, says, "It is Miss X's right to choose! It's her body; she can do whatever she wants with it. In the interest of women's rights, abortion MUST be legal throughout the country!"

  2. "I most vehemently disagree," says Miranda Shiomi, a pro-life activist. "I'm all for women's rights in general, but what about the child? Does it have no rights either? Abortion is totally immoral and I insist that it be outlawed except in cases of rape, or when the mother's life is in danger."

  3. "You're not going far enough! Abortion is murder!" shouts Reverend Zeke Wall, waving a placard with a picture of a foetus on it. "God decides which babies live and which will die, not us! The government must maintain a stern anti-abortion stance to preserve the morality of Nulono!"

    This is the position your government is preparing to adopt.

  4. "Abortion has to be legal if we're going to last as a nation," says Fleur Broadside, President of the Society of Bitter Old People. "Have you ever thought that with Nulono's growing population of 563 million, we soon aren't going to be able to squeeze any more people within our borders? If we use abortion to control the population, we'll make great savings and can spend the money elsewhere. One child per family should just about do it I think. Extraneous ones can be sold to other countries."
The Government Position

The government has indicated its intention to follow the recommendations of Option 3.
