    Default Interesting true story on Abortion in VIC on ABC

    it's rather sad that someone else (ie a doctor) needs to decide for YOU whether you are allowed to have a termination or not.
    pretty far from "pro-choice"... I bet if men could fell pregnant that these laws would be changed real quick...

    i'm pro choice the only thing i have trouble with is where the line is drawn at how many weeks you can get to have an abortion. And where the rights of the child come into it. 24 weeks seems way too late, a week or two more and the baby could survive on its own outside the womb. I don't know where the line should be drawn, but being able to legally abort a baby that you can feel kicking doesn't sit well with me personally.

    That's why it's pro choice though clementine grace. It may not sit well with you but then you just don't do it. For someone else, it might be just as ethically sound in their mind as terminating at 7 weeks.

    I understand your point though as I'm not sure I could terminate at a late stage either.

    It's so pathetic that it's apparently a crime. I'd travel interstate to get one if I needed one. Australia needs nation-wide laws for things such as this. I might be able to afford to travel interstate for one if I absolutely needed to, but not everyone could. If a mother of 8, who's financially struggling, falls pregnant ith number 9, it's not going to be simple for her to jet off interstate for a safe termination... and how is forcing her to keep a baby she doesn't want and can't afford a good idea? What a freaking joke.
    I believe it gets written up as a d & c.

    yup but i suppose i mean how far along do you get the choice. Where do you draw the line to have a choice to terminate vs the life of the baby. It's very hard to know where to draw the line, i just always struggle with how far along you should be allowed to have an abortion for non medical reasons.

    You mean at what gestation should we remove the choice from the women? Because that's what your asking- at what gestation does a woman's body no longer become her own? The idea makes me want to vomit.

    I don't see you as pro-choice. What else would you like to control for other women? How they birth or feed their babies perhaps? Did you watch the video?

    At what point does the baby have a choice? So should we be able to have abortion at 7 or 8 months then?

    Abortions are only legal till 24 weeks and those guidelines are set for a reason.
