There are absolutely no obstetrical situations encountered in this country which would require partial- birth abortion to preserve the life or health of the mother.
There is absolutely no medical reason to kill the baby except that the mother wants him dead.
Why do you support it?

I know someone personally who had one for a medical reason. At 7 months she discovered her baby had no brain stem. It had no chance of survival at all. A partial birth abortion was performed to spare her the agony of having a c-section or going through labor. Cases like these are the only times partial birth abortions are performed. That is why they are exceptionally rare.
I would never tell a woman who had spent a pregnancy waiting for a baby that was wanted and loved how she should cope with the situation. I would no force anyone to continue a pregnancy or undergo a major medical procedure because pro-lifers have presented partial birth abortion as something women do because they don't want a baby. Woman having this procedure are devastated that they aren't having a baby.
Unless you have personal experience with this, please don't pretend to be an expert.
