    All aspects of something need to be considered when an individual is deciding whether or not something is ethical/for them.
    Yeah, I agree with you and I was pretty unclear in my post.

    What I actually meant to say was that the implications of bringing a child into the world when they're not wanted can be quite serious for everyone involved. So if there is some unpleasantness in the termination process, it should be weighed up against that.

    I don't want people feeling guilty for making choices that are tough at the time but might be a solid decision in the long run.

    I completely agree with that, Cdro. It is a hard thing for some people to think about the process though, especially when it is painted in far more dramatic terms than it really needs, with a great element of emotional sway due to exaggerated and actually fictional ideas mixed in.

    Had a pm with steph (OP) and I think what she saw was a graphic description of VERY late-term abortion, with a healthy dose of fictional unreality. There were some pretty nasty images associated with it.

    There is a grat book called the abortion myth which details the way pro life groups use imagery to spread propaganda. Often images used are from further advanced miscarriages as they look more baby like. The book also details the laws regarding abortion and womens bodies during pregnancy. Obviously it gives an acurate account of abortion proceedures.
