Just look at band aid and that con job. In 1985 there was 40M people living in Ethiopia and today you have 100M living there in the exact same condition.

For more than a decade before 2016, GDP grew at a rate between 8% and 11% annually – one of the fastest growing states among the 188 IMF member countries. This growth was driven by government investment in infrastructure, as well as sustained progress in the agricultural and service sectors. More than 70% of Ethiopia’s population is still employed in the agricultural sector, but services have surpassed agriculture as the principal source of GDP.

Ethiopia has the lowest level of income-inequality in Africa and one of the lowest in the world, with a Gini coefficient comparable to that of the Scandinavian countries. Yet despite progress toward eliminating extreme poverty, Ethiopia remains one of the poorest countries in the world, due both to rapid population growth and a low starting base. Changes in rainfall associated with world-wide weather patterns resulted in the worst drought in 30 years in 2015-16, creating food insecurity for millions of Ethiopians.

Completely silent from 12th June 2011 until May 22nd 2018. And you returned then to discuss - abortion! And about half of your posts since have been on - abortion!

But nothing to see here
Thanks the above got me laughing. Its called having a life my friend. You might consider taking a break youself. Might make you less paranoid.

Mattie was probably most genuine as she just loves at argue, even with herself!

You said "the abortion lobby" would raise it as an issue. I'm not part of any abortion lobby. If is perfectly possible to be anti abortion and also recognise that graphic images can be upsetting to people who have suffered miscarriage.

A seven-year break, and then back with an abortion-bashing bang

What happened? Did your life suddenly evaporate?

The point is the number of people living there have increased and the situation is still more or less the same.

The situation is not at all more or less the same. There are considerable differences.
