Just a few reasons for those who don’t understand the necessity of having access to safe, legal abortions after 20 weeks. The costs, the sacrifices made, it all takes time. The fact that 70% of women wanted an earlier abortion suggests there was something preventing it. Sometimes it’s financial and transportation, but also for some it is an emotional debate; sometimes it just takes time to come to terms with the fact that you are not ready to be a mother, sometimes the ante-natal depression is too much to where the woman’s life is at risk.
I could go on and on, but these the list is too long, even though it can be summed up in one sentence: A woman should have access to abortions after 20 weeks for any reason she sees fit- no one else has the right to tell her when it is right or wrong to do it, no one has the right to steal her choice.
