If viability is not until 24 to 28 weeks, then sufficient human attributes are not present until then to say you have an independent human being. Those are God's rules, not mine.
I don't want to be the one to decide for others, and I don't you to be the one to decide for others either. I want the mother and the father, the people with the greatest interest in the situation, with the advice of medical professionals, to decide.
As far as old people and whatever issues you see, I don't see how this has any thing to do with abortion.
I don't think government should be paying for anything to do with abortion; it should be a private matter with the people involved making the decision and paying the cost. If they need financial assistance, then they need to look to family or to private charity.
It should be clear that this is a divisive issue among freedom loving people, and I think makes it difficult, if not impossible to move forward with the freedom movement. I supported Ron Paul in spite of his abortion position, but there are others who agreed with him fully except for his abortion stance, and would not vote for him on account of this, specifically both my daughters. And then there are they such as you who would not vote for a freedom loving person unless he agreed with you on abortion. What chance does freedom have when there are such divisive, and in the case of abortion, emotional issues?
"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.
