Your question said nothing about "necessary". You simply asked why. I did answer.
To answer your NEW question, because SCOTUS determined it was the most constitutional solution.
So why was that seen as the "most constitutional solution"?

Of course they do.
Pregnant girls want to know their options and are sold an abortion.
They are told they blob can be removed.
The blob is a human.
When others have seen what the baby does during an abortion and walks away no longer believing it is a blob, that should tell you.
These are doctors who have a valid opinion.
They have seen the baby "not a blob " -kicking and trying to get away from the death tool.
They see the babies heart rate increase greatly as the babies is fighting for its life.
Perhaps it truly is as bad as some say. I say it is.
That means bad news for folks if God is real. I say He is.
The "good news " is how He made a way to escape what is to come.
Gtown, when women miscarry, they (the pregnant woman) often refer to it as a blood clot, tissue, a ball of tissue. "Went to the ER around 9 after passing a ball of tissue". What is your point? So what IF in fact doctors call it a blob, hell the mothers don't always refer to it as having lost a baby.

Why would I mind? Do you mean to tell me you've never gotten clue one my concerns aren't where less than 2% percent of all annual abortions lie but in the first trimester, for the 98% of annual abortions, where Constitutionally women do not have to give any reason for terminating to anyone? Not the gov't. Not the clergy. And not the nosy parkers like you. You know, the section where you think women are playing god and should just remain pregnant because they willingly had sex and possibly an orgasm?

So what. The fact remains that there are women who DO have deep regrets about becoming mothers and wish they had their old life back. The one they had BEFORE they got pregnant. Here is one such story, and I've read many others like it.

I hate motherhood

Jan. 11, 2008 at 1:10am

by Beba2m

"Why is it that we are conned into thinking that motherhood is a blissful, satisfying, and rewarding blessing? I attend a mothers group for young mothers and the other day one of the social workers asked..."Who hates being a mom?" Everyone looked at each other as if they were afraid of the question and that admitting to it is a mortal sin. My hand shot up. After a year of being a mother I can't hate it more. It just prevents me being truly happy. I know some women out there have invested time and money into having a child and think its the most glorious and officious thing in the world. But I think that from little girls we are brain washed into thinking that being a mother is what our duty is. Its evident by the toys marketed towards girls: baby dolls that poop and pee with their carriages, little tiny kitchens, even vacuum and broom sets. JESUS!

Needless to say my pregnancy was unplanned and unwanted. I was 21, unmarried, and still in college with hopes of attending medical school. I dreaded being pregnant and the permanent scars it would leave on my already flawed body. I thought that once I had the baby I would love being a mother and a wife. The truth is I hate it. I couldn't love my child anymore, his smile touches a part of my heart that no one else can, but I don't like being his mother.

It is just a burden I don't want to deal with at this point of my life. The feeding, the changing, the constant neediness, which I know will perpetuate until the day I die. I decided to breastfeed him and still do and regret every day I decided to do this. It has been 14mo since he was born and I still have no ownership of my body. I have tried to ween him, but he become unbearable.

Before having him I was a straight A student, active in school, and I held up to two jobs. Now its seems I can't get my shit straight. My grades would be more that satisfactory for other students, but they just don't cut it for me. I feel like I have to choose between my dreams, and being a good mother, which isn't fair.

I have all the love and support from my husband, but its not enough because I feel like a failure, like I've failed myself. All these emotions have just turned into anger, and its just boiling inside of me because its turned into hate. I can't control my anger anymore. I can't stand being alone all day with my son. He wants to be all over me and all I want is my space. I try to play with him, but I'd rather be elsewhere. I feel like I have to give and give and give, but in return nothing.

To make things worse, I'm totally isolated. My mother lives in an other state. All my friends graduated 2 years ago and moved on with their lives. I have no friends I can relate to, even when I'm at school. I just feel thrusted into a position where I had no say, and I was pushed into it "because it was the right thing to do".

Now I'm filled with regrets, mourn the loss of the life and the person that I was (which I really liked) and feel all alone in life. I hate being a mother. I hate my life. Most of all I hate what I've become. "

Yes women sometimes miscarry ,and yes they tell the doctor I think I passed "it " or I passed a wade of???.

My point is, it is still a baby no matter what it is called.

Left alone chances are the human baby will grow and grow.

My main point is planned parenthood -don't plan ANYTHING but the death of the wade, fetus, baby,????.

But you can only 'choose' to a point. Why do you think that you can't 'choose' to do what you want with your own body after 24 weeks?
In some states there are no restrictions, so a woman can get an LTA if she wants one.

Again, that is NONSENSE. I went to Planned Parenthood quite often when I was 18+ and had just moved to a big city. I knew that if I chose to have sex at some point, I DIDN'T want to get pregnant, so I needed reliable contraception to PREVENT that unwanted outcome. They charged very LITTLE money for that contraception, and I was very grateful to get it. I would have had to pay MORE anywhere else.

The Planned Parenthood facility I went to was terrific. The medical staff were very knowledgable and helpful, they answered all my questions on preventing unwanted pregnancy and STD's, and finally set me up with the contraception that I felt would work best for me. Thanks to Planned Parenthood and its wonderful staff, I never got pregnant before the time when I WANTED to become a mother, which wasn't until my 30's. I never got a sexually transmitted disease either. I went OFF birth control when I decided I was ready for the responsibility.

I strongly suggest that teens avoid all types of sexual activity with partners while in middle or high school because even WITH the use of birth control and condoms, unwanted pregnancy is still a possibility. Must protection always be used if for any reason a teen girl or guy decides to have sex? ABSOLUTELY, and EVERY time too. Is that protection a GUARANTEE a girl will never get pregnant? Absolutely NOT. All birth control methods can and do fail occasionally. When BC fails and a pregnancy results, it is still the girl's/woman's decision whether to continue it or not.

You DO realize that not all states do, right? And that in those that do, the choice is STILL the woman's under various conditions, right?
And WHAT has that to do with the point anyway, Witless? RvW can hardly be considered "Sharia Law".

The convenience. The lack of risk to the mother's health.
The lack of lost wages. The lack of morning sickness. The lack of emotional attachment if you do decide to pull the plug. No having getting rid of the 'baby fat'. No discomfort to the woman at all not even labor pains.

Pp cares only for the position they hold, and the money to keep flowing in.
Even if women feel they should have abortions, then they should atleast be held accountable to pay for "their " own abortion.
There are illegal abortions happening now, and are just as safe as the legal ones.
When laws validate our behaviors, it makes us feel better about what we do.
The more people that say it is ok, the better we feel.

Why are you so afraid of that ?
I'm more curious that you don't already know the answer to this question based on the answers to other questions I've recently given.
The answers to other questions you've given have been all over the place. I don't think you know what you believe.
Again, it doesn't matter. It's not my pregnancy, not my decision.

As far as little girls being brainwashed into playing with baby dolls? I don't think so. They desire a baby doll. I never pushed baby dolls on my little girl, she wanted one. Like any normal little girl, she also has mentioned wanting a baby brother or sister, and yet we never taught her that either.
Granted her dolls would die if it was left up to her. Lol
Babies are alot of work.
I don't doubt, not one word of that ladies story, but again what life does she so greatly miss??
We all want to go back to the carefree days, but they are gone!
Her friends would've moved on baby or no baby.
Now please tell me this, since you would be the first to say how a girl should not be punished her whole life for getting pregnant.
Why should this lady be punished her whole life for having a baby and later regreting it.
Even her grades suffered? Yes I agree -my wife is not as "sharp " as she used to be.
She just finish teaching a pharmacy tech class, that should have been pretty easy for her, but s
It was much tougher on her.
Babies take -and a mother gives.
If this woman wants her life back, then she can still have it.
Sign away her rights, leave her man, and go back to how it was.
She would find it is just a dream.
She's upset that she sealed her fate at a young age to be a mother.
These are things "had she known " she would've never gotten pregnant.
No matter what she can't go back.
One day, when all the do my own thing, coffee shops and malls by day, and party like a rockstar by night, wears old. She will be glad she has a child.

I'm a Pro-Lifer for sure, but that doesn't mean I have any right to decide what an expecting mother is to do with her, or her unborn child. I do think it is a shame! That woman who willfully procreate, then decide they do not want the child anymore, so they just end his/her life is a shame.
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness" -John Locke

What do you think "I believe it's a baby at viability" means, Doc? In the abortion debate, it means squat. Not my pregnancy, not my business. In my personal life, it was where I gauged my high-risk pregnancies.

I've spelled this out before, possibly before your time, but my writing has rarely reflected otherwise.

Seriously, these long-drawn out "implications" of yours are uninteresting.
