I can't believe this thread got to 23 pages without it being closed...Well done peoples!!!!
Abortion has to be legal. A woman must always have the right to make her own choices in regards to her own body.
As for when is it "too late" though, I agree with some of the previous posters. If a pregnancy has gotten to the stage where an abortion would entail inducing labour, and that unwanted baby will be born breathing and viable, the idea of then "terminating" that baby, or withholding medical care, is absolutely abhorrent.
I think no matter how pro-choice you are - the idea of terminating a living breathing baby just because it's unwanted is a little off.
FYI, intellectually I agree with the argument that it's the woman's decision and right to terminate a pregnancy at any point up until that baby is born breathing. But ethically the idea of an abortion past the first trimester makes me want to throw up.
*eta, I should have read the next page, clearly other people had thought of this already. As you were
