    I have been looking at the BBC lately for more balanced news. It also gives much more world news than CNN or Fox, for example.

    Just out of curiousity I did a search on abortion on the BBC site and found:
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/ethics/abortion/
    I thought this covered many important aspects of the topic in a way that presented a variety of viewpoints well. It also introduced me to some arguments against abortion that I had not thought of.
