Quoting Aiden's Mommy :) 10/13/11:" Is the poll asking if we're for/against the ban? Or for/against partial birth abortion?"

I'm not really well educated on politics but I'm glad he doesn't hold that power if that's true

What is Partial Birth Abortion? I know what Abortion in general is, but Partial birth, meaning when the baby is almost developed?

I think it's a horrible horrible thing. But honestly, if the woman was heartless enough to do it, the kid is probably better off. Since she obviously wasn't considering adoption...

That's true...



Clicking For it means you want the ban on partial abortion

There are numerous things online that show letters and speeches from Both Obama's fighting to reinstate partial birth abortion. It's disgusting.

When I wrote my paper on Abortion I said that I didn't think abortions were feasible after the point of viability, which was a couple years ago when it was thought to be 22-23 weeks, now it is considered 20 weeks (WOW).

I think the link says only a few hours of life at 20 weeks
..and viability at 23 weeks

I don't understand why anyone would want to reinstate PB abortions. They aren't the same as late term abortions, which are still legal and still happen. So what is the point? Or benefit?

He fought to reinstate it in the past. He and Michelle both. There is actually an old fundraising letter that you can read from the Obama's. Search for "Michelle Obama letter February 17, 2004"
