It seems USA has not issues enough of consequence, to dig out from grave and make a celebration of the settled question on 'abortion' and for such flimsy excuses as 'morality', that too from a 16 year old!!!
I disagree that the opinion of a 16 year old is not to be valued- it may be necessary for social workers and psychologists and other related people to look into what kind of a supercilious and superficial knowledge of life and the world in general can lead a 16 year old to state his opinion so casually, in any forum, on the necessity or not to terminate a life; and whether or not such an attitude is reflective of lack of awareness and consciousness of the average American youth and their inadequacy to be 'knowledgeable' of themselves or world in general.
Further frightening to me is the way he is being turned into a celebrity with 'new hair-style' etc. and of people talking of him as “‘Out of the mouths of babes’ goes the verse'!
