Over board? Your the one talking about removing a persons bodily autonomy.
Where would I draw the line at abortion based on gestation? I think that should be assessed as it is in Victoria.
It is not an unreasonable view point to suggest that a line should be drawn at what gestation you are allowed to have an abortion. I never said I was against abortion.
I'm not suggesting where that line should be, as I said in previous post I struggle to think what it should be.
If you think that it's a crazy and extremist view point that abortions shouldn't be allowed past say 28 -30 weeks then that's your view. I think many would disagree.
As for the baby, it does have rights. The moment it is born, before that point the mother must always come first. Some may say this is selfish, to me it is just common sense, my body, my choice.
I'm with Clementine on this issue, surely aborting a 24 week baby would still require some sort of delivery (no I haven't watched the movie though and have no personal experience with abortion) but as stated, babies can survive at this gestation, if its simply for mothers choice, not medical, couldn't they do it and allow the baby to live and be adopted by someone who would love a child?
Once again, i did not say i disagreed with safe, legal abortion. I do think women should be able to have an abortion. For me, there is a human rights issue at play with late term abortions. I also said i wasn't sure where the line should be drawn. If i baby can be born breathing and survive, i don't believe it should be legally able to abort it for non medical reasons. But that's just me. If it sit's ok with with you and you want that choice, that's your view. You can think whatever you like of mine.
Yes i watched it.
What I don't want is women being forced into anything, there must always be choices. Without choices when it comes to unwanted pregnancy, I shudder to think what would happen. Imo it's a very slippery slope.
