#12 Good questions. To be clear, these are my PERSONAL views. I have never advocated that my personal views become law. I would be satisfied if Liberals could just agree that abortion is a really horrible, and Conservatives could agree that it is sometimes necessary, and we all could agree that we need to do everything possible to prevent the need for it.
Define rape victim
why is a 17-year-old not considered a child?
Each state defines these terms and age of consent. In Florida it depends on the age difference between the parties. If a child below the age of consent is impregnated by an older adult, the act is defined as rape, regardless of "consent"
Why is an adult with mental disorders not part of your calculations?
Pretty much every state considers a mentally impaired (or even chemically impaired) person to be incapable of giving consent, therefore it fits the definition of rape.
What about a woman with pre-existing health conditions that could kill her not part of your consideration? How about women who need to take lifesaving medicines that could damage the fetus?
Absolutely, I support abortion in any case where the mothers health is threatened by the pregnancy, and also when the fetus is deformed/impaired in such a way that would severely affect quality of life"
What about those women whose lives are horrifically impacted or even killed as a result of lacking access to abortions? See the woman who was forced to carry an unviable fetus after her water broke at 17 weeks
That should never happen. Every state law, no matter how extreme, has exceptions to protect the life of the mother. Fearmongering media and activist doctors bear some responsibility for bad outcomes in these situations. No judge or jury is going to prosecute a doctor for saving the life of the mother, and if they did, the public would not stand for it. Courageous doctors realize this and protect their patients, not exploit them for political points.
My personal opinion is that it is NOONE's business but the woman who is pregnant, except those people who she invites to participate in the decision making process. My personal opinion, supported by objective FACT is that each and every pregnancy is unique and it is barbaric for the state to intercede in that decision making process.
Yeah, I know, you've made it very clear in the past that partial birth abortion in the 40th week is perfectly acceptable to you and should remain legal, even though killing the same child one day later would be murder. That makes you an extremist in my book. We will have to agree to disagree.
