Anonymous asked: How can you support abortion after the fetus/baby is capable of living outside the womb? I'm all about choice, but I could never support abortion post-viability because at that it is murder. It's not a black and white issue, and while I generally agree with your views, you seem to be oversimplifying something that's actually quite complex.
I’m not trying to oversimplify a complex issue. Less than 2% of abortions occur after 20 weeks while viability is generally considered to be at 24 weeks.
Abortions post-viability are not only very rare, but they are also not just a matter of choice and bodily autonomy at that point. Any abortion performed so late is going to be done on a wanted pregnancy that has gone wrong. They are done to preserve the health (and sometimes life) of the pregnant person, or to remove a fetus that has severe abnormalities or has already died in the womb.
I wish they didn’t have to happen, but I am not supportive of taking away life-saving medical procedures from the people who need them the most.
