No he wasn't. I wish this thread was more specific.

Sounds like a pro-life argument to me.

According to some here in FYM and in the US, I should have to get permission to terminate a pregnancy.

Permission from who? Only, those who are under eighteen would have to have a parent/legal guardian with them. To fill out insurance forms and other needed medical information.

Like I said, some people here in FYM think I should have to get permission.

Italy government, president clash on right-to-die case | Science & Health | Reuters

It's repulsive intrusions like this that come to mind when I think of 'the nanny state', but for some reason in situations like this, the state seems surprisingly popular amongst self-professed libertarians.

I think. I am now finally understanding the term "Nanny State." Sorry, for my earlier confusion. A senior moment. At fifty two years old, I'm allowed.....

Anyway, I don't believe that government should have too much control. Especially, in our private lives.
