In response to a confession. (contd) She didn't want a baby. That's fine. But a late term abortion of a healthy baby is hard not to judge.

My sister had a late term abortion when we were both in our 20's. Apparently she didn't know she was pregnant because her periods are irregular. She told me much later, and I told her that I didn't judge her, but it wasn't exactly true.

In response to a confession. If you're a nurse, then you understand that human beings aren't robots, and what's good for one person could be horrible for another, and that your opinion doesn't factor in at all when it comes to doing what's best for the patient.

Well, y'all can take heart in the FACT that this type of abortion is extremely rare. Yes, I said EXTREMELY. Women don't abort healthy babies at a rate that warrants this level of "concern" and condemnation. Instead of perpetuating the lie that this is commonplace, do some damn research. Your emotional response to the false narrative that women are committing infanticide is NOT reality. Ffs.

I have no problem with women who choose to abort. But I do think it's wrong to choose to abort a 30 week old healthy fetus. Like another poster said, we have to admit there is a point where you have to say it's not OK.

In response to a confession. What matters is that you both were able to CHOOSE what was best for you, without anyone throwing in their two cents. That's literally the whole point of this debate. It isn't up to you to judge anyone who aborts, whether the fetus is healthy or not. If someone terminates a healthy pregnancy it doesn't make them the devil, anymore than delivering a healthy baby makes someone a saint. This is about demonizing women for making a choice and it's bullshit.

In response to a confession. The whole reason I made this post is because I think New York's new law means that it ISN'T illegal. I was asking for clarification about it here. And I'm not talking about putting a woman's life or health at stake .I'm talking about instances like the example the doctor interviewed used, were the mother's life would be saved or no longer at risk in either case. The only difference is that in one, the child would most likely live - 90% chance, and in one the child would not. That's the only difference from my understanding.

In response to a confession. Read my post again!!! I chose to deliver because we thought our baby was perfectly healthy. I even put it in all caps for you. I don't fault anyone for aborting when a child has health concerns. I was talking about people who choose to abort a healthy fetus.

In response to a confession. I aborted at 23 weeks due to my baby having anencephaly. She wasn't diagnosed until that point. My husband and I chose to end the pregnancy. She might have lived a few hours or a few days. I'll never know. Her prognosis after being born was suffering and death. You chose to deliver. I didn't. Neither of us are morally superior. Have a good night.

In response to a confession. It's not a lot. It's not even a little. It's extremely rare, and like you said, ILLEGAL. Research shows that women who terminate that far along in their pregnancies love their babies. They WANT their babies. They have to choose between their lives and safety and a pregnancy that has become nonviable. There are several dozen empirical studies that have proven this, over and over. Do your research and stop spreading hateful rhetoric about women. And if all these women that you and yours know about are seeking illegal and at-home abortions, don't you think having access to a facility that could help them would be, well, helpful? It's still their body. They still should be able to maintain full, 100% bodily autonomy, just like men and corpses, regardless of whether or not they're pregnant. Quit pretending this is about saving cute, snuggly babies from the horrible women. Its about controlling women and seeing them as lesser human beings. Your anecdotal evidence is worth absolutely nothing.
