I think I might have misplaced a word there. Clearly, on the
"Tritium Enriched Sewage" song, there is a comment that condones
abortion. In other words, the consequences of anti-abortion laws are
indicated in that song, and therefore, FZ was pro-abortion to a
lesser or stronger degree (I have no information on this).

The problem, (although I have no real stake in this matter), is that
it was stated that the YS video does not have applause after the
comment "accumulating after the total ban on abortion a few years
back", while the CD indeed has applause. Where did this applause
come from? MK says it was inserted right after that phrase. And, as
I've stated, if it was the case that that happened, then personally
I think that it is a very unfortunate aspect from an ETHICAL point
of view, in FZ's material. Perhaps, one of the strongest problems,
even worse than the material on the "Have I offended anybody?" CD,
which to me is not be taken seriously and is not offensive.
