horribly sad, that even a baby at 24 weeks that could survive without it's mother has no right to life and can be killed off (for non medical reasons) if the mother desire's it. If you don't know you are pregnant by 6 months, you missed your chance long ago. Horrendous that it's even allowed.

There's something wrong with someone who doesn't know they are pregnant by 24 weeks. The baby shouldn't be punished for that.

I am all for choice and it definately needs to be informed choice, but I would be wary about articles dealing in absolutes like this one seems to be. It's poorly written and contradicts itself. Abortion is right up there with the hardest decisions a woman will ever have to make in her life and I know it is not one made lightly but if this is the informantion they are relying on then I worry for thier abilities to make truely informed decisions.

The problem with the pro-choice versus pro-life debate is that whichever side you take you are accused of being a heartless jerk.
Personally, I am pro-choice, as I believe that if somebody is going to have a termination, it is better for it to be done in a clinic than, um, to put it bluntly, with a coathanger. I also do not believe in passing judgement on people who have terminations because you don't know what the circumstances are in each individual case. But I do believe 24 weeks is too late. It's a viable baby by then.
