Mostly agree with you, but subject in the OP was about abortion.Jessica Rain;n1469068 said:He is off base because there are plenty of kids who made it away from neglectful abusive parents and turned themselves into productive citizens. Those people deserve to live their life just like anyone else. Hardships and all.
Who the fuck is he to assume they will end "dead" as adults and determine that their lives are not worth anything so it's better to terminate them now? What an ass!
Why the extra 3 months delay. I covered it. You have sex...you get checked for pregnancy....you get it taken care of. The difference between 3 and 6 months is that the fetus is developing and may be more aware of what is happening to it. There's no good reason why women or couples can't get a pregnancy test soon after the potential of a pregnancy occurs.ROBERTSON;n1469065 said:If a single women who lives in the slums becomes pregnant, knowing full well that the possible child will be brought up in the same conditions without a father, and little hope for anything other than living in a slum with a single mother.
Who will suffer?
Not the "father", he is NOT going to found.
Even if he is, what is the result of forcing him to stand up going to be, maybe a drug dealing "father", who beats the mother, just because.
That, is what the OP is stating, facing reality, which some times, is NOT pleasant, but thats the thing with reality.
What difference does it make if the single welfare women is 3 months or 6 months pregnant, the end result is the same.
Who has the right to decide when its to late, just because the scan looks more like a child at 6 months than at 1 month.
Keep emotion out of the decision making process.
