Well lets say the laws are changing. Whats your vote? You truly think women should be allowed to abort a 39 week baby?

Whenever a woman decides. I don't think it's anyone's business but her own. Yes that means if she decides at 40 weeks to abort then even though I would never do it, doesn't mean I would ever judge, ostracize or belittle her for that decision. I would hope no one would make that choice, because I cannot imagine the pain you would feel in doing so, but if she did, who am I to say she can't?
Also, pro-choice isn't pro abortion. It's a woman's right to choose.. whether that be to parent, put baby up for adoption or abort. In a perfect world women wouldn't be put into a situation where they would even have to consider it, but unfortunately we don't and never will live in a perfect world.

I would probably not after the 1st trimester (for non-medical reasons), but I don't care when it comes to other women. Like I seriously would not care if someone aborted any time before birth, even if it would be like the day before or their due date or something. If it's not my body it's not my choice.



I mean I'm pregnant now, and I plan to keep it unless something fatal is going on with it or something that'd risk my life and it's before a deliverable time (before 24 weeks) . After this pregnancy though I plan to get an essure, if it fails any other pregnancies will be aborted unless they're farther along than 24 weeks and I somehow went past that without knowing it.

Before the second trimester

Personally I would abort as soon as I found out as I was pregnant. I would like to say before 12 weeks, however if for some bizarre reason I didn't find out I was pregnant until I was 15 weeks along then I would still abort, I would say that would be quite unlikely though as I am a very obvious pregnant. In terms of medical reasons I would abort at anytime in the pregnancy, if my life was in danger for example.

im not offended i just dont like it to me you chose to abort why should you take credit for that life to me an angel baby is a way to represent a misscariage (sp) if i were someone who was trying to conceive and just kept misscarring i would be offended that someone who chose to end a life would consider it an angel baby

You don't know why they choose to terminate. What if they would die if they stayed pregnant? What if the child had extreme abnormalities and would be born and die immediately? They shouldn't get the same credit in your opinion?

Oh well that's your opinion and it's not really up to you to decide who is entitled to take "credit" for an angel baby..... and what an absolutely ridiculous way to word it anyway, "credit" I mean come on :roll:

Im certainly not taking "credit". It actually has nothing to do with me, its about remembering a baby. I dont think any baby should be considered as less because of the choices of the mother.

I'd go to 12 weeks ONLY because I feel movement after that. If I knew I wouldn't feel movement until closer to 20 weeks, I'd go as high as that.



Basically, whether or not I can feel movement determines my course of action.



Tricky wording there, by the way. If you want clear and honest answers, don't muddy the question.



I don't care when a woman gets an abortion. As long as she doesn't give birth to a live baby and then kill it, IDGAF because after that it's legally considered murder.

Quoting Secret Service:" When do you feel is a time where you shouldnt have an abortion? Like at what month in the pregnancy. Even if youre for abortion I'm sure you have an opinion."


Well - personally I would try and avoid an abortion after 24 weeks if my life didn't depend on it or the baby was determined to have a terrible quality of life. I don't really care what other people do.

Pro choice but absolutely HATE abortion and that an insane number of women use it for birth control. I would never get an abortion unless MY life was at risk.



After saying that, I think 8 weeks should be the cutoff point.

Abortion is birth control though is it not?

I am talking about women who do nothing to prevent a pregnancy and just abort when it happens.
