Belatedly, I am responding to Herbert Murray's well-considered observations about abortion clinics. I do understand there are multiple views around the issue of abortion. To write about this topic with intelligence would take many pages to give a respectful due to even a few of the multiple opinions, just as there are multiple reasons for women needing or choosing abortions, that often influence one's opinion about it. But I do wonder why this is not considered a women's issue?
I would be interested to know people's thoughts on Johannes' statement below– as it seems to me professionally to be a thought we all can support?
"We work within codes as a profession, and I want to believe that regulations have been arrived at by rational, honest people of integrity, and that they are evidenced-based. When those same tools are used for political purposes, it calls into question the whole system. That should concern every architect, when you start using codes as a political cudgel, who is next?" - George Johannes, AIA
