Makes sense. The issue with Abortion in the US is that the envelope for Abortion keeps getting pushed further and further out. It has been pushed to the point that politicians have said that it is even OK for a baby to be born and then denied care after birth so it dies. IE "post birth abortion"Sertorio wrote: ↑Tue May 10, 2022 9:41 amYou may find the Portuguese experience with abortion interesting.
In Portugal abortion is free, and has no costs to the woman, up to 10 weeks pregnancy.
About 16,000 abortions per year are carried out in Portugal.
Every year about 600 women go to Spain for an abortion (4%).
The main reason is that abortion may be carried out in Spain up to 14 weeks into the pregnancy.
We may conclude that about 96% of women wishing to abort can solve their problem within the (rather strict) limits of the Portuguese law, which seems to be very satisfactory.
Why hasn't the problem found a satisfactory solution in the US, beats me...
My biggest issue with abortion is that it is a form of negative Eugenics by definition, and in practice is any pressure, including social pressure, is placed on the woman. I have known woman that had 5 abortions before they were 25 years old. How many abortions is enough? The same movement that supports abortion on demand is the same movement that supported forces sterilizations of "Sexually insatiable Female Morons". Lest they "threaten the nation by out breading the "well bred"
By the same people that are demanding "Diversity"
The best argument for Abortion is that without it women are being forced to carry another life inside them that they don't want. Outside the obvious that their own actions in the overwhelming majority of cases is what caused them to be in that predicament babies are now born regularly after 21 weeks and survive outside of their mother's bodies. So why instead of having an abortion not having a premature birth. Then adoption? There is large excess of couples that are unable to have children in the US than available children to adopt.
