Since most scientists agree that babies in the womb feel pain between 20-28 weeks IMO anything after 20 weeks is murder except in the case of major health risks for the mother or major health problems for the baby. I don't think anyone's rights to their body makes it okay to put an unborn baby through the pain of having a needle passed through their chest and into their heart (usually takes the doctor more than one try) and then be injected with a poison to stop their heart in some cases or better yet just go in and start pulling limbs off of a fetus that can feel everything happening. Before 20 weeks I have no problem with it but wouldn't personally do it.

It's a bit harsh to call it murder.



I agree with what you are saying vi just don't agree with the term murder.

I got my NT results back today and everything seems to be ok, but you can't check for my kids disorder this way so I'm still having doubts...

For me, ANY time is the wrong time to abort. I couldn't bring myself to abort at any point in the pregnancy. To each is own though I suppose.

None though I'm not too big of a fan of elective abortion after viability.

I have no problem with it. It's a woman's right to chose whether she wants to keep her baby or not. I don't judge.

As long as it's still in the womb, it's fair game as far as I'm concerned.

What I mean is, if a woman chooses to terminate anytime over the course of her pregnancy, it makes little difference to me whether it's 6 weeks or 40.

So for those of you who believe in abortion after viability. If the baby is born with some kind of defect would the mother have the right to decide to end it's life after birth?

That's not the same thing as terminating a pregnancy.
Plus, there's all kinds of genetic testing now, so as far as I know, it is fairly uncommon to go all the way to birth in America without knowing about major defects. Birth injuries are certainly tragic, and Idk what I'd do in a situation like that. I especially don't know what my heart would do. So, sorry, can't say.



In some parts of the world, it's pretty common for parents to abandon or kill babies right after birth if they have defects. The Inuits used to toss baby girls out into the snow because they had no value. Who am I to say what should be acceptable for anyone's life or culture based on my own opinions? I've never even had an abortion and I'm one of the most pro-choice people I know, only because it's just not my place to judge. People do the best they can figure out how to do for themselves, and sometimes I don't understand it, but it's not mine to understand.

There's no way to test for my kids disorder. I love them and couldn't imagine life without them but I wish I could end their suffering. If only I had known before they were born things would be different.

But the baby is able to live on its own and is therefore its own life. I'm not judging or trying to press my views on others...it's a discussion. I am aware that some people are not able to keep their baby for whatever reason, but I do not agree with abortion as a method of birth control or late term abortions & that's my opinion.
