You know, I have to agree that I worded that statement poorly. But what I was really getting at was that abortion should either be a 'no questions asked' situation regardless of length of gestation, or it shouldn't be allowed at all. Most (I would think nearly all) women who obtain a late term abortion, do so because to continue gestation threatens their lives, or because their fetus is profoundly compromised. However, it would seem to me that if a woman was THAT insistent that she no longer wanted to be pregnant, she would get a caesarian section - not an abortion. And trust me - I personally would find it abhorrant to end the life of my fetus that close to term - but I don't think it should be my call if it's not my fetus.<quoted text>
"I also believe if a woman wants an abortion at 35 weeks and 6 days, she should be able to get one legally - if she's that determined not to be a mother, she'd make a terrible one"
I would hope that she would come to the determination that she didn't want to be a parent long before 35 weeks and 6 days....
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to clarify my position on this.
