  • No, for one the baby has a heart beat and your killing a human being. I don't agree with it unless its a serious medical issue that will harm the mother or its a bad circumstance such as rape and the mother not handling carrying a child from a rape. Why wait until that late in your pregnancy to kill your child????? If its a medical reason and you have no choice its one thing but if your doing it because you changed your mind then I feel you should be forced to get an IUD or your tubes tied.

  • It is illegal, banned by the supreme court in 2003.

    And no I do not agree with it.

  • NO!

    There is no reason why you can give birth to MOST of the child, but have to 'abort' it. If it's a life or death matter for the mother by that point, she can have a c-section. If she just doesn't want the baby, she could FINISH giving birth to it and put it up for adoption, or she should have had an abortion in the early first trimester, instead of waiting to go through to pain of labor and then deciding to kill it.

  • No. Here in MO the law says 24 weeks is the latest a person can get an abortion...but I think that's too far in too. I'm okay with abortion if that is what a woman wants to do, but not over half way through the pregnancy. The town I'm from will only do them up to 16 weeks and I think that is about as far in as should be allowed.

  • okay. let me rephrase that. only if the baby is in trouble. such as a family member had to do it because her baby had no arms, no legs and stuff like that. it was better that way. but no just because you don't want a baby, it's wrong.

  • I am pro choice....Absolutely NO abortion for me..... I'm against all types of abortion for ME!
    But I stay out of business that has NOTHING to do with me.....
    A partical birth abortion is the concern of the person having it done. I will not nor could not judge them, I will leave that to God, for only he knows all.

    That's because 24 weeks is still the age of viability.

    I would go as far to say that they should be limited to 12 weeks.

    But every state has exceptions for medical reasons.
