Personally, I love Japan, I LOVE IT, I think its a wonderful culture and I just feel "at home" there, South Korea is (for me) similar but not "as" nice. But I think its really important to point out, if you think "Japan" is equal to the rest of Asia you are wrong, Asia is a continent with various nations all with different cultures and the level of oxytocin is completely irrelevant when pointing this out (take Indonesia and see how open they are about Abortion, or Malaysia or..... you get the point).
Actually, they are quite open, in my experience, about birth control in Malaysia (a muslim nation), but I only know about the more modern areas regarding this so we probably have the other side of the scale as well, just as we got Texas "The third world country State" in the U.S.
On the subject of man coming from monkeys. At what point of development did the monkey realize that it was naked? Or was nakedness also an invention of a few tribal leaders who were losing fur?

He was trying to make an comparison; so it was in context! But I guess I'll save it for the other thread!
Religion is poison because it asks us to give up our most precious faculty, which is that of reason, and to believe things without evidence. It then asks us to respect this, which it calls faith. - Christopher Hitchens
In my own threads, I try to define a few words at first so people don't get confused.
To me, it can't be about any of these subjective things. I don't need to justify abortion by the possibility of them being criminals (which I do find to be a stupid argument). A fetus simply has to have permission to be in the woman's body and as soon as a woman may find it not permissible, well that's her choice.
Again, apparently the legality and availability of bearing children in poor circumstances equals more criminals. Still not seeing the difference between this and the legality and availability of drugs equaling more criminals. I understand one choice is made by the individual and the other by the parent, but that doesn't change the outcome does it?
