    If the mother's health is in jeopardy,and she's late term in her pregnancy,and the real reason to abort is the mother's health and not because she doesn't want the baby,then why don't they do C sections and do what they have to to keep the child alive? If the baby is late term,it will have a good chance with today's medicine.

    I would just like to know an example of when an actual late term abortion is needed to save mom,as opposed to a C section and a good effort to save baby.

    I hope the Supreme Court will rake this over.

    Considering Roe v Wade never even allowed late term abortions to begin with, I don't think this is going to be a huge deal that everyone thinks. it will be progress though.

    I understand what you are saying from a legal pov, but I think it will be a huge deal with the pro-choice crowd. They will go nuts, chanting "slippery slope", and "keep your laws off my body" until they're blue in the face.

    I was thinking the same thing, Abbey. I don't think for a moment the pro-abortion crowd would just let it slip through without a fight.
