@pbtip,
Ah, but you didn't state your own question. Do you expect an answer to something you meant to ask?

@roger,
Yes, sorry. I was looking for others to identify the problem and propose a better question for each poor question.

Was/is your mother employed outside of the home?

Do you feel it should be a womans right to obtain a safe, legal abortion?

What do you feel should be the legal age for drinking alcohol and/or smoking marijuana?

@pbtip,
Poor Question - Should it be possible for a woman to obtain a legal abortion?

If there is a legal option for abortion, it should very obviously be possible get.
