Is there anyone on this site that believes abortions should be legal up to 9 months of pregnancy?

Another question got me wondering if there is even anyone out there that thinks abortions should be legal during the entire pregnancy?

I completely disagree with abortions period...let alone when the baby is full term.

    ME TOO!!
    I used to say if you were raped you should be able to have an abortion, but I no longer feel that way.

  • A medical abortion where the baby has absolutely no chance of surviving outside the womb would be one reason. When I worked in OB, there was a warrant officer who ran out of amniotic fluid and was literally crushing her baby to death so she opted for a medical abortion. There are case when women are presented with the devastating news that their baby will die no matter what that they will get the abortion instead of carry that baby to term and delivering a stillborn baby or a baby that will die within minutes. That is a very personal choice between the parties involved. Should someone decide 8 months along they don't want to be pregnant anymore and get an abortion? Absolutely not.

  • NO...that is horrible! I carry a lot of guilt, because I have had an abortion, I'm not proud..it was around 11 or 12 weeks and it stays with you forever.

  • I think each woman should have the right to make her own decision. That said, I knew I could never have one. I think that once the fetus gets to the point of viability, that is, it could live outside the mother, then abortions should be illegal. But that is also pretty late in the pregnancy.

  • Uh no. Not the entire pregnancy. If you have to saw off the limbs of a child to abort them, it's just totally wrong. But very early on, well, that's a choice women have to make and live with.

  • I'm very prochoice to a point. If the baby is at a stage where it can survive outside the womb, then no...abortion should not be legal at that stage.
