Wanted . . . or no?

LONDON, England -- A new law, just approved by parliament, requires all prospective parents to sign a Declaration of Parenthood after the birth of their child and before the infant receives any official documents. Until this paper is signed, the newly-born fetus will not be considered a human being, and his life may be terminated at the discretion of a qualified physician, his mother, or other responsible relatives.
Officials say it the law was necessary because of the high number of unwanted children, and a rise in the number of cases of "battered baby syndrome" being reported. Moreover, many people in Britain now feel it should not be the government's decision whether or not a woman becomes a mother.
Fundamentalists are protesting the law, claiming it violates the sanctity of life. Others, however, observe that since no-one knows when life begins, an arbitrary date may as well be later as earlier.
Backers of the law say that it will help to create a more humane society. One lawmaker, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, explained. "We believe that if a woman has a chance to see the fetus before she makes her choice, the cases of child abuse will go drastically down."
One thing at least is certain-- there will be no more children for government welfare to take care of.
