    Simple question. Is setting the limit at 20 weeks for a voluntary abortion a reasonable limit? That is 5 MONTHS.

    I think 12 weeks is reasonable, unless there is health issues or rape involved.

    Why does a rape victim need more time to decide to abort?

    Is an intentionally botched Cesarean NOT an abortion?

    On the American system? Because if so, that would be the day you found out. ;)


    I will explain it, the American way of measuring pregnancy goes from the day of your last period, other countries go from when you most likely conceived. In America they say you are pregnant 40 weeks on average, but in reality it is about 38 weeks.

    I found out a week after my missed period, I was technically pregnant only for about two and half weeks......By their standard 4 1/2 to 5 weeks. I think you can figure out where and when and if you want an abortion by 12 weeks.
