I highly recommend this. This very visual documentary focuses on Putins recent years starting from his return to presidency in 2012. In depth coverage of adoptions and LGBT in particular.
we respect womans right to privacy with her doctor. Those people are not pro-life, they are pro-birth; there is a huge difference. We are the party who seeks reduction in pregnancy terminations by expanding sex education, access to contraceptives, universal healthcare, etc.
To any pro-birth members on DU (if they exist), I would say this: those people wont stop at banning abortion, they will seek to restrict access to contraception and continue on a path making women unequal. This fight was never about life, it is about womens role in society. If men could get pregnant, this would never become an issue or even a discussion.
Also, the moment those people are able to swing RW justices to their side, would mean that a woman who is unable to get safe abortion in the US must travel to Canada to do that; she would be a subject to manslaughter charges upon return.
USSR at one point expermented with banning abortion after WWII when they needed to boost births. The result was - huge countrywide infertility problems due to massive number of unsafe abortions. Even in todays authoritarian russia, abortion remains legal and I think it is for that reason (history).
