As mentioned a lot of "late term" ( a misnomer ) abortions are because of fetal viability, funny how this part always gets ignored.Even if the mother’s life is in danger, at 38 weeks the baby is full term.
A C-section can be performed saving the lives of BOTH mother & child.
As far as when it is the case of a mothers life, I would have to see data on which would be safer, an abortion or a C-Section. If there is even a 1% difference in an abortion being a safer procedure over C-Section than I would want my theoretical wife to have it. I think on the rare occasions that this actually happens a person should follow medical advice.
Yet they light building up in Pink, in celebration. Crazy stuff.
Anyone callous enough for late, late term abortion for reasons of convenience would certainly know it's far more profitable to put the child up for adoption.
Strange days, indeed.
I believe lighting the building up was more because it codified abortion in law clearing up some legal verbiage and what not, more so than the aspect of "late term" abortions.
Here is the thing Elsbet, people aren't having "late term abortions" just because they changed their minds. JustJess is right that the vast majority of women who do this out of medical necessity are devastated by it. Try reading accounts of women who have been through this instead of judging them as irresponsible or baby killers.
I also think it is very cruel indeed to force a woman to carry a still-born to term.I couldn't imagine how tragic it would be to have to carry around a dead fetus inside of you.
We can all be honest here, you and everyone else on your side is against abortion in all circumstances, "late term abortion" is scare tactic used to illicit emotional responses out of believers and attempt to use ghoulish imagery in an attempt to sway public opinion. That's all this issue is, an appeal to people's emotions. Abortions performed in this time frame are a tiny percentage of them and that is a fact.
