As for late abortions. I never met a person that I discussed abortions with that felt they were OK. They are not OK. The brain is formed and functioning at least to the extent that being removed in pieces is unthinkable. A horror. Even to save the mothers life it's awful. Better to try and save the healthy fetus by doing a C-section. That's what I would choose if I were in that situation. At least that gives a healthy fetus a chance.
By 20 weeks just about every women knows she's pregnant. Probably before that. She has time to abort.
Pro-choice people believe it is not their place to dictate to women whether to keep a pregnancy or abort it. Only that woman is walking in her shoes. Only she knows her situation be she a 15 yr old teen or a 35 yr old married woman who doesn't want the pregnancy for any number of reasons.
They're including rape and incest because they are obsessed with the fetus, and have no interest in the woman or girl who has to live with the nightmare for 9 months. Many of these women and young girls were brutally raped, beaten, threatened, raped repeatedly by a relative ... lived a nightmare like my mother's friend who jumped off the roof in Brooklyn. Can you imagine how cold blooded and cruel these conservatives are to want these women and girls to suffer for 9 months just to place the unwanted infant in our horrible foster care system where it may stay until it ages out. So they can pat themselves on the back for causing her to suffer just to bring more unwanted kids on the already overcrowded earth.
The Reps/Cons want abortion banned everywhere. They made it clear on TV and online. And what's so galling is they never mention the men who impregnate these women and girls. Never mention forcing these men to financially support the women and kids they father. Why is that? It takes two to tango. Why is he free to walk and she left to deal with the pregnancy physically and financially alone? Where are these old white conservative men to get some laws changed making these men responsible? Why don't you Cons demand the laws change and the men pay? That may help cut abortions also if the woman knew she would be supported by the sperm donor? How about we execute rapists or at least castrate them. Why are the Cons only attacking women who are most vulnerable to their attacks?
