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.
Wow, I didn't know it was a crime in NSW/QLD... Will watch the vid tomorrow.
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.
