Re: It's become an INVASION (long) - Carol
Making the third trimester abortion a legality is pushing too far. Saving the mother's life over the child was never in question. An improperly developed child would be picked up in a Sonogram long before it got to the third trimester. In the third trimester, if carrying the child was detrimental, a caesarian could be performed and the odds are the child could survive and probably wouldn't be any riskier than aborting. Incest and rape would also be known long before the third trimester. The NYS law allows if for the health and life of the mother. those following jurisprudence know ‘health’ means just about anything. Doctors are no longer a requirement. As I read it, as said, it opens the door to abuse. A lost job, divorce, or other such mental stress can fall into the "health" bucket but its not a reason to abort a viable child.
Abortion is complicated. It's neither black nor white. In a recent study, the majority of people fall into the same kind of mindset as myself, neither that its always wrong or that it's always right.
