  1. So there is a level above SCOTUS then, assuming the USA has signed this Convention?

    Did they really mean “psychic development” ? Who ya gonna call – Ghostbusters!

      The United States signed the convention but the US Senate did not ratify it. So, until the Senate decides otherwise, the USA is NOT part of this Convention.

  2. “Won’t somebody think of the children” lunatics destroying the lives of children again.

    Homophobia is an irrational fear and needs to be classified as a mental illness

    1. the actual illness is that religion is often just like an obsessive compulsive disorder.

      People are ‘trained” by churches to fear some things, but the people dont feel the fear – they simply act out the fear in irrational ways.

      Thats a big part of how you get religious people to do horrible things. Usually the fear is going to hell if they dont do what they are told, and death is not death if they do as they are told.

      But the fear, again, its not felt as fear – its simply a behavior pattern that is almosst impossible to change.

    Well done, Chile! No longer we wish to think of Chile as the land of General Pinochet, that country is one of South America’s rising stars and like it’s neighbours making great progress in LGBT issues (Guyana take note). It was not long ago that the eyes of the world were on Chile when they pulled off that amazing mine rescue, showing themselves to have rehabilitated themselves since the days of the General.
    However Chile still does not allow abortion under any circumstances – even if the woman’s life is endangered by her pregnancy. Uruguary takes a similar stance and abortion is only allowed under extreme circumstances in Argentina. While I may not share some of the pro-choice views of some of the correspondents on these pages I do feel that termination of pregnancy should be available for many reasons during the first three months with tighter restrictions thereafter.
