my God that guy was the worst. totally missing the point. having people protest about completing your work is totally different. entering an abortion clinic gives private information to the people standing out the front that you are currently pregnant, and that you are at the very least considering termination. this is information that often even your closest friends and family are not privy to due to the distress it would cause you to discuss. stranger do not have the right to this information, even less the right to comment on your choices

16:00 listen to him, that's not the way to treat people within society, simply locking them up? imprisonment and execution are both bearing the same meaning; sorry mate, we are clueless what to do with people like you, so we be locking you up, maybe these walls teach you how to behave..

Give me strength! Live & let live in my opinion. What makes anyone else special enough for their individually held views to effect the rest of the life of another? This is more than people feeling annoyed and hurt feelings. But some genuine empathy would go astray from these people. Great episode, thanks.
