I can't believe you don't understand that six weeks is too soon. Five weeks is the earliest a woman may know she is pregnant if she has a regular 21-35 day cycle. If she don't which isn't that uncommon whether based on stress levels, medicine or weight changes; she would be entirely SOL. If the woman cannot get an appointment or see a doctor (in Missouri they have one clinic and a three day hold on abortions) so once they know they would need to get an appointment ASAP. It just isn't practical and realistic. I'd be fine with a 10 week abortion limit barring cases of rape, incest or welfare of the mother.

If six weeks is too soon, why do women have abortions at 6 weeks? It certainly isn't because of appointment availability.

Because some women are already on BC and don't know it failed until long after the morning after pill is no longer effective. It's also expensive if you are planning on taking it every time you have sex.

Why not wear a condom? Why place all the responsibility on the woman?

I've been pregnant twice, and didn't know until after 6 weeks in both cases and both pregnancies were planned. It's not like there is an indicator light that goes off when an ovum implants.

You can't get a test until after a missed period. OBs count pregnancy from the first day of your last period which can be 4 weeks or more before a missed period.

IF YOU HAVE NOT MISSED A PERIOD THERE IS NO INDICATION THAT YOU ARE PREGNANT. Once there is a missed period you are already 4weeks or more pregnant.

It's not like women get some magical tingle when they conceive.

[quote=jetgraphics;55216678]Perhaps you do not understand common sense nor morality.

No one claims it is moral or legal to shoot helpless people, school zone or not.
But proponents of "choice" / "abortion" are arguing that it is legal to destroy helpless life.

Because abortion IS legal.

Early missed period? Rape reported with no condom? What else do you want me to tell you?
