So to sort of answer your question I would be OK with copping something I didn't want to do if it was for the greater good of humanity. I would not abort a child because I didn't want it, couldn't afford it, it wasn't the right time etc. If I truely couldn't look after the child I would give it up for adoption. I wouldnt want to give up the chikd and it would be Absolutely heartbreaking....but something I would do as it was for the greater good, and my suffering although undesireable, would be an affordable outcome.
Sorry I should of quoted Vic Park when I posted that I was simply saying that what she said is actually the law at the moment in Victoria (well she said 20w the law is 24w).
I'm pro-choice, but I just can't agree that late term abortion (unless medically necessary) is ever ok. And even then I think it much kinder on Mum and Baby to be induced and have a baby to hold and grieve for, though I know some people can't deal with that, which is why there is the option.
To do it for other reasons? Not OK. It's not OK for someone to stab/punch or otherwise hurt an 8month old baby in utero, so why is it OK for the Mum to kill it?
To me, a late term abortion for non-medical needs (either Mum or Bubs) is the same as someone who uses abortions as birth control. Both are pretty disgusting.
I just don't understand in this argument why a fully developed baby that could survive outside the womb is just cast aside like it's worth nothing and has no right to life. THAT is the part i don't understand.
