I spent some time last night pondering your question.
Should a survivor of an abortion not only be allowed to live, but extraordinary means taken to help it live. Right?
Okay, so let's think about this. You stated "even if the mother doesn't want the infant to live." So...who will take care of this child? Chances are of it is a survivor of an abortion, it's around 20 weeks which the last time I read about it, gives it a less than 10% chance of surviving, and if it does, it's highly likely to have some profound health problems. Who's responsibility will it be? The chances aren't good it will be adopted. This little survivor has some major battles ahead of it and may need constant care. It's not only a major investment of money, but of time, energy, devotion, and possibly a full time job for two or more caregivers.
Again, it's much more than just "keep it alive." It's afterwards. It's not just the moment of conception or the moment it's born. It's a lifetime.
There are many variables here so there IS no cut and dried answer. I honestly cannot just say "yes" or "no" to this.
I agree with the poster who said "no abortions past the point of probably viability." My personal limit for an abortion FOR ME would be 12 weeks. I cannot speak for anyone else.
What you may not realize is that PRO-CHOICE means CHOICES:
The choice to have a child and raise it.
The choice to have a child and give it up for adoption.
The choice to terminate a pregnancy.
It covers ALL choices. Complete reproductive freedom. The ability to delay parenthood until one is completely ready to be a parent.
Imagine a society where every single child born is loved and wanted.
Isn't that far more appealing than a society where every child is born and many just exist...without love, nurturing, shelter, warmth, and the other things that make life worth living?
they never answer this question. they always deflect.

only one person answered the question when asked how much more they are willing to pay in taxes (but then again she doesn't pay taxes!) and it was LIP.

she did say she would adopt/foster as many children as she could if the state would allow it.

Now i understand why the great state of INDIANA won't allow her too!

but to give her credit, she did actually answer the question with no deflecting (but a bit of prevaricating).

Next time, try reading for comprehension before you post.
Exodus 21:22 If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine.
21:23 And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life,
21:24 Eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
21:25 Burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe.
"If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her..." So, the men cause the pregnant woman to abort the fetus.
"...and yet no mischief follow..." So, the fetus is a slowly drying wad of goo in the dust, but the woman herself was not harmed.
"...he shall be surely punished, according as the woman's husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine." The woman just lost her fetus, aborted,(against her will even) so the husband gets to take them before the judge and he can be paid a few shekels for the loss of a potential child.
But if the WOMAN is hurt, THEN it becomes a serious matter!
"And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot, burning for burning, wound for wound, stripe for stripe."
Lost fetus = a few shekels, just as if a ox broke loose and damaged as field.
Injured woman = eye for an eye retribution for the injured person.
You are not interpreting scripture correctly. The woman lost the child NOT as an act of her will. When one aborts their child it is an act of choice. It is premeditated...read the scriptures regarding that.

And then there's the other end of the spectrum. So many of my friends with kids, want to worship the ground they walk on, put them in a plastic bubble, and let them run the show. These are the ones who still put their third 1-month-olds' bowel movements on facebook, to see if anyone recognizes that color, and OMG!!! is there something wrong with that consistency??? The ones who let their 6-month-old dictate the adults' sleep schedules. The ones who bristle with righteous indignation when someone else does anything whatsoever to criticize their kid. The ones who can't come up with any other topic for conversation than what 'little Pookums' did, or said, or puked today.
They are ALWAYS surprised and 'appalled' when the kid screws up, has a differing opinion, refuses to rectify a personal problem, or acts in ways contrary to expectations.
They're also the ones who end up beating the kid for an infraction, financially supporting the kid for a lifetime, losing the kid to suicide, or committing suicide themselves.
That's sad too.
I have a cousin whom I am almost positive has some form of Munchhausen. Her kids are always "sick" and she posts quite frequently on FB about what's going on the entire time they're at the doctor's office. Once her son had a fractured skull because she said her daughter picked the baby up and dropped him on his head. While at the hospital, she was using her phone to get onto FB. I thought, "If my kid had a serious injury, the last thing I would be thinking about was FB." Anyway, she's always posting the gross stuff that could easily be google'd, but she wants the attention. She ended up quoting the bible about spare the rod, spoil the child. I argued with her that while I don't think there's anything wrong with smacking your kid on the butt (my parents did to me and I turned out just fine) that corporal punishment is actually largely ineffective and often times just makes the child fearful of the parent rather than understand what he or she did was wrong. I posted studies that showed that children who are beaten as children often go on to have a propensity toward violence and become depressed.

She deleted me. Some people don't like to hear the truth. And to hit your child in the name of "god"? Yeah, no.

God condones abortions. He sees nothing wrong with regretting the life you may create and aborting it.

That is what happened to James Robison's mother. She chose to keep her child and he is a renowned minister of the Word of God and an international missionary to the poor, homeless and abused. You never know how God will use someone.

You did not create it, God is the creator of life. God blesses you with that gift of life for which you are a steward of. If you were capable of creating life you would choose when you would conceive and when you would not. Abortion would not even be a consideration.

That is your opinion, and you are quite entitled to live by it.

However, you cannot tell someone else they must live by your beliefs/opinion.

Even god regretted making human beings, and if the ultimate being in his infinite infallible-ness can regret life he created (Genesis 6:6 The LORD regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled.), I can't imagine humans would be judged for their own regret.

And if god indeed create life that would be aborted, then it seems he shouldn't have created it in the first place. That also begs the question of whether you believe pregnancy that occurs from rape is a "gift" sent by god?

REALLY. Then why do you and others go ballistic when some women decide to abort a pregnancy because they just don't want pregnancy or children?

You'll understand (or not, it doesn't matter to me) why I'm not buying this claim.

That pretty much sums it up! These same women who "wanted" children spend all day on FB complaining about their children and husband. Out of all my friends who has marriages and children, only ONE ever says anything nice about them. It's sad.
Yes, I agree, it is sad. And I'll bet these women who are complaining now are secretly (or not so secretly) unhappy because they were told by family, friends, or religious community that having children was something they were "supposed to do," as opposed to parenthood being something they really WANTED to do.

There's an anti-choice MYTH circulating around that says "mothers never regret having their children." After doing some research on that, and finding some sites with names like "I Wish I'd Never Had Children," I know for a fact that their claim is so NOT TRUE.

When DS was younger, and had just started to attend school full time, I started getting pressure to have another child, from in-laws to acquaintances. I told them that having another child was NOT going to happen and refused to discuss it further. Some were cool with my decision, others got really angry with me. I didn't think it was a coincidence that the ones pressuring me -- and getting pissed when I said NO -- ALL had two or more children. Some said I'd regret my decision one day, when DS asked for siblings. Neither of those things happened.:-)

Wow...the audacity! I know lots of people who regret having their children. My brother being one of them. Now, given his reason is because his son didn't turn out the way he expected he would, but nonetheless, he still regrets it. I know of another person who had a child at a very young age. She basically deserted her child and allows the grandmother to care for the child. The only unfortunate thing is that she's pregnant again. Two children by the age of 18 and this one will more than likely end up at grandma's too.

I actually had someone ask me if I felt like I was missing out on life by not having children. I said, "I'm living my life every day - how am I missing it?" I get to do a lot of great things because I did not have children. I've traveled, been able to move wherever I want, had as many pets as I want and enjoy a lot more time with my friends and doing the things I love to do like workout, freelance, etc. Some people know all along they aren't meant for motherhood. I never saw a baby and felt comfortable. The two people who really had an impact on me when I was little was my cousin's aunt and uncle. They had no children, traveled to France and all over the world, ended up opening this http://www.afinetasteofparis.com/Bienvenue.ht... .

I always found them so interesting and exotic. I wanted to grow up and be just like them. And while I haven't opened my own bed and breakfast in France, I've still gotten to do some pretty cool stuff!

What evidence? Do you simply not understand the phrase "ectopic pregnancy" or the problems connected with that condition?

You're basically saying that The Lord messed up when he made man.
Then occurs The Great Flood, or "The LORD's Great Abortion" the extinction of that human race.
This is why abortion is inevitable and will happen.
God created us to kill.
Whether you religionists want to accept it or not, that is the reality of man and his god.
God is a merciless murderer. God can play the role of satan quite well, after all, The LORD created The Devil from itself!
A messed up god made a messed up thing: the human. Even The LORD knew he messed up!
Arguing about abortion is moot because we humans are so messed up that we will eventually self-extinct, committing "The Second Great Abortion" with nukes this time.
You need to see the irony in you guys fighting each other to death over abortion.

Neither did Dahmer's parents.

Or, you know, maybe they did.

Either way, no fertilized egg was ever guaranteed to live to birth. "God" kills many before they attach to the uterus, and most before they complete gestation.

Abortion is all part of God's plan.
