I would add pro-choice, pro-life, and perhaps Roe v. Wade (too US centric?) to the list of main articles. Having just one makes it look lonely. ThunderkatzHo! 14:20, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
Can we use my file for pro-abortion? Occasionaluse (talk) 14:23, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
Please bear in mind that this is a sensitive issue. Therefore self-confused fucknuggets should really stay well clear. ADK...I'll receive your mongoose! 14:25, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

The coat hanger icon doesn't really match the box.--User:Brxbrx/sig 14:33, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
It's a color issue. I tried to change teh color and ended up messing with the dimensions. I'm quite new to all this fancy smasnsy photoshoppy type work. But I want to learn, so it's just taking time to do it. Same with making the template itself. I could have asked someone, but the single best way to learn is just to dig in and try --- so long as you can't break anything.Pink mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 15:45, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
If it's alright with you, I'll have a look at it--User:Brxbrx/sig 18:01, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

One of many articles on Abortion[edit]

Can't we do better than that? It is not pithy and sounds sophomoric. - π Moderator 01:53, 13 August 2011 (UTC)

Hern's link, essays[edit]

I removed the link to all essays and readded Hern's link, since both are appropriate here. Essays space contains everything from quality essays to drivel, and should not be directly linked from our template, as many of the essays are not something we want to draw attention to. Hern's link is one of the best written articles about why women should have access to abortion world wide. Highly appropriate, and very much not "random". — Unsigned, by: WaitingforGodot / talk / contribs

I added the essays link as I think essays should be highlighted more than they are, though kept separate from articles. The link ran to the category itself, so I think that all that would be required is a disclaimer at the top of that page to state that the essays in the category are personal opinions & not necessarily the opinions of the RW community at large. I haven't read the Hern article but I'm sure it's more appropriate as an external link in the abortion article (which it already is) than in what is supposed to be a template for navigation of appropriate content within our own website. I don't know of any other navigation templates including prominent external links, & I don't think it's a good precedent to set.

I see your point on hern, so yeah that should go. But i'm totally against essay inclusion until/unless we really look at what essays we are linking to. I don't think linking essays should be precedent, as you said. If/when we get a way to differentiate between quality essays and pieces of shit, then i'm all for it.

Actually, the whole resources section should be removed, since it was intended to be external resources, and you suggest that's a no-go. but i"m not sure how to move the whole section without breaking the template. --Pink mowse.pngGodotGrow a vagina 22:15, 21 February 2012 (UTC)
OK, I've taken the resources bit out, as the category is already linked at the top. Don't really agree with you on essays; I think our essay space itself & the areas it covers should be highlighted rather than just a selection of top-rated essays. But this is a discussion now ongoing at Saloon Bar rather than here. WéáśéĺóíďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 22:28, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

why coat hanger?[edit]

What does the coat hanger have to do with abortion? Does it somewhat relate to the procedure or something? [[User:K61824|]][[User_talk:K61824|]] 04:08, 25 August 2012 (UTC)

"Coat hook Abortion" is slang for an illegal, incredibly dangerous back alley abortion that in the 50s and 60s, used the hook of the coat hanger to kill and pull the fetus out of the woman's body. --Revolverman (talk) 04:28, 25 August 2012 (UTC)
