Do you believe women should be able to have abortions, on demand, at any point during their pregnancies?

Having an abortion on demand means demanding someone perform it. So, not quite. We really don't need to force or demand that of anyone. What we do need to force is allowing a woman the Right to Privacy. If you want to stop abortions make it illegal to father unwanted pregnancies. Teach men to wear a condom.

Yes. I have some personal concerns with non-emergency, late-term abortions, but birth is the least arbitrary cut-off and it's not my call.

No...so many other positive options with less regret!

Not a fan of abortions at 9 months or close...But it's a gray area so I don't want to dictate that.

What's the gray area at 9 months?

I know right? 9 months is ridiculous.

I suppose in cases of the mother dying or whatnot, but I suppose those are rare cases.

I'm saying 'suppose' too much...

I think this is why I give you so much shit about your morally superior attitude vegan. You feel it's morally ok to kill a baby at any time during a pregnancy, yet to hunt and kill an animal for food is morally wrong. I'm not understanding this logic.

Not without restriction up to the moment of full term birth.
I don't assume to know what would be a good cutoff for or all the right exceptions to any limit, but some time in the 3rd trimester would probably be wisest. Once it's to the point of high chance of survival without extreme lasting medical complications basically. At that point it's not like the woman is escaping giving birth anyways.

Any time, doesn't matter when. Could even abort after giving birth, but I think that would piss some people off.

I mean, do you remember anything that happened the first 2 years of your life?

It does kind of start a slippery slope towards how old the child can be when aborted. Like aborting a teenager?

That's repulsive and immoral

I was waiting for somebody like you to notice this thread, what took you so long?

Only during the first trimester.

With all the methods of bc that are available and the ease of buying pregnancy tests, there's no reason a woman needs to wait more than 90 days to decide if she wants the baby or not.

Not in the latter stages unless its an emergency, but i see no problem with doing it in the earlier stages

Even thirty seconds before going into labor?

That's a rather extreme example, but I believe I already gave my answer.
