I was born in 1973. We were taught that abortion was
wrong from an early age.

The deaf community here (my wife is an interpreter) is
in general more sensual and less morally inhibited
than the general population. Why? We can only assume
from our conversations that the "social pressure" that
comes from overhearing others (i.e. the prevailing
cultural view) is missing. Things like, "I never heard
that" and "Nope, I don't know what that means" are
common. So you are actually ahead of the game.

We have no television (i.e. the Coma box).

Indeed, television news shows are designed to be
entertainment (i.e. just like psychics) and dramatic.
All my news comes from the internet. I can watch the
AP news clips and read differing opinions and foreign
accounts and make my own judgements. Why not think for myself.
