Thank you, but …

Yesterday I shared an opinion piece from the Guardian attacking President Trump for signing an order denying US funds to any organisations that support abortion. Note that word: opinion. This morning in my mailbox I found a tirade from someone called Ed . . . that’s all, just Ed . . . instructing me to stop reading the Guardian and start thinking for myself. Mystery man, having thought about it, I can’t decide whether that was more insulting than stupid, or vice versa. Close run thing.

Ed suggests that the time to think about wanting a baby is before you think about having a relationship. While it might inspire a debate about carts before horses, he’s entitled to that view, as is the Guardian columnist to hers. But he also believes that contraception is the only way to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Well, Ed, it’s not; that would be abstinence. It would also be rather difficult for practising Catholics. Where he really consigned himself  to the trash can, though, was in offering in support of his belief . . . a belief to which he is entitled and which I respect . . . a story line from Coronation Street.

They make it up, Ed. Best avoid Holby City, for the good of your health.

    Some people just don’t get it your are entitled to your opinion as is Ed, but please Ed get a grip.

    To reply to Gail, some people only can accept your opinion if it agrees with theirs. It is rather like people who cannot accept that the UK voted for Brexit or the USA for Trump. You may or may not like it, but those were the democratic choices of the voters

    While not knowing what “Ed” actually said, the baby before relationship thing is quite frankly dangerous. Brings to mind Germany under Hitler…Bosnia….etc., etc. and it’s appalling to have to write etc. because the list is never-ending. This is called ethnic cleansing and needs to be condemned always and forever.
