    Once again women get the shaft in Japan. Why aren’t there riots in the streets?

    Maybe one of these centuries even the japanese people will have a government that rules in their interest.

    Of course none of us will live to see that day……

    The main reason abortion remains fairly routine in Japan is because it is highly lucrative for physicians, which is why their lobby in the Diet has fought so hard for decades now to prevent the contraceptive pill from gaining full “legalization.”

    What the H(E)LL are you women complaining about?!? None of you must’ve been to the States within the past decade. There, a woman who wants to get an abortion is forced to look at the ultrasound & listen to the “heartbeat”(regardless if she was raped or has health issues); gets called “murderer” & spat on by religious protesters at the door; and in some states, a woman isn’t even allowed to CONSULT about getting an abortion without permission from the sperm donor. A grown, competent woman still has to get PERMISSION from the husband/boyfriend to make a health decision.

    Compared to the mess going on over here – politicians have been seriously gunning to take down women’s rights lately – Japan is looking like Shangri La.

    210,000 abortions in 2010? Wow. That’s a lot of babies.

    Why is it, when it comes to reproductive rights, everyone focuses on women?

    No one ever mentions that by some strange magic men are financially obligated to pay for a woman’s choice to keep a pregnancy, even if there is no legal contract between them.

    She is having an abortion due to financial struggles? What struggles? She can just have the state come after the man who consented only to have sex with her, not to be a dad. In so many cases it is HIS struggle, not hers.

    A woman has reproductive choices, a man only has reproductive obligations.

    And people wonder why there are so many soshoku danshi…?
