A pregnant mother will die due to pregnancy complications. You must choose between saving the life of the mother or the infant. Who lives?

You’re choosing to save one life or another. This is totally different from aborting a child as a form of contraceptive. What an idiot.

I’d save the mother. She may have other kids and a husband to care for.

There are exactly ZERO situations where a mother’s life would be at risk during pregnancy past the 26-27 week where the baby would have to be aborted to save the mother’s life or health. They would simply induce and deliver the baby.

Vegancrusader? Is this your new account?

Or is there another LGBT communist pro-choice vegan who, based on your username, is also Polish?

It’s up to the mother. If I were in her place I’d get rid of the kid, especially if I have other children to take care of. Plus, I’m not letting a fetus be the cause of my demise. I’ve got my whole life ahead of me!

There is no medical indication for a late term abortion.

John ... don’t be too hard on my loony leftist brother from another mother.

At this point, Phaly’s been exposed to the harmful fumes of leftism for so long, we can’t really blame him directly for the silly stretches he attempts with logic. I would like to help him remove his lips from the tailpipe of leftism, even for a minute so as to clear his head and see the truth.

I would save the mother unless she specifically requested that I save her baby and let her die.

The threshold is 24 weeks and there are MORE THAN ZERO instances of maternal death. In the US, roughly 800 women die per year during childbirth.

Yes, and not a single one would’ve been saved by having an abortion instead of delivering the baby.

Jewish law/thought is to preserve the life of the mother.

So now you’re admitting it is a living infant and not just a clump of cells?! 😂

In this scenario the child is developed enough that it can live outside of the womb

So you’re against the new NY abortion law?

Oho, I smell an end run around the whole 'sanctity of fetal life' position :D. If the Rs admit that the mother's life is more important, then it invalidates that whole stance...or at least exposes their hypocrisy yet again. Well done, Magyar!

I’m actually somewhat undecided on abortion. I can see both arguments. I’ve vacillated between supporting and opposing legal abortion.

But in the interest of making the poll question simple I used that terminology. I was a little concerned it would affect the results by making more people vote for the infant, but so far “mother” is clearly winning. It’s definitely a real Sophie’s choice!

My understanding is this is what the new NY law is about… It’s only for cases where the mother’s life or permanent health is at risk. Or if the fetus isn’t viable (in which case it’s kind of a moot point).

What if the mother is anemic and the blood loss from a cesarean would have a high potential for death?

Who is this “vegancrusader” you speak of hon? Because I don’t know such a person.

“You’re choosing to save one life or another. This is totally different from aborting a child as a form of contraceptive.”

Isn’t this what the new NY law is about? The late term abortion allowance is only for cases where the mother’s life or ongoing health is at risk (or for when the fetus isn’t viable, AKA a moot point.)

So isn’t framing the law as if it’s late term abortions for contraceptive purposes deceptive at best and outright lying at worst when a majority of people want to save the mother? (At least by SOH standards, which may not apply nationwide 😀)
