If you research instead of believing rhetoric you will find that late term abortions make up 1%-3% of abortions and are done for medical purposes. Only around 23% of abortion providers do late term abortions. Any abortion is horrifying, especially late term abortions, but they are necessary. Reproduction is an imperfect process and sometimes its necessary to take a life to preserve a life already walking on the planet. Maybe you need a few more facts and less emotional rhetoric. Please research it.

Abortion should be somewhat shameful, it really should be. I say this as a person that has always supported pro-choice but up to a limit. These pinhead cheering it one like it's something to be proud of, killing a baby 9 months in? Jeezus what happened to our moral compass.
I saw something very disturbing, a group of women online mocking a picture of an aborted fetus. They said vile things about it and joked about abusing it. W.T.F.! Savages indeed.

I haven't seen anything like that, but if that happened, it's terrible. I can't imagine why people would do something like that.

And you guys are lambasting them for cheering for something that would never happen.

Kinda pointless, the whole thing.

So O'Rourke said this:

"No matter how you ask the question, my answer will be the same: The decision of whether or not to get an abortion is one neither I nor the United States government should be making. That's a decision for the woman to make."
I couldn't agree more.

Beto's biggest error was to say he wasn't going to answer stupid BS questions about something that doesn't exist

In the third trimester? That is what we are discussion. If you have stats on that - I would be happy to take a look at them.

Thanks for the rep point.

I'm sure you must know this is not true. They are not cheering the abortion of a child 1 day before it is due to be born. They are cheering that he believes the government should stay out of it and that a woman should be trusted to make the best decision. The law cannot take every medical eventuality into consideration, but it can allow for a women to make the decision.

It appears you didn't read all my posts:

It's like some politician giving a hypothetical about bravely sending somebody to the moon without a space suit. And people in the crowd cheer on the thought of a brave and fearless astronaut walking around the moon without a space suit.

Well yeah, it's pretty morbid cheering on something like that.

But since it's never going to happen, the whole thing is pretty dumb.

Yep, that's why late term abortions is a slipperly slope. That dude was doing it before it was even legal, imagine if it became legal? Unless there is something dire going on with the mother and or the fetus I just couldn't imagine late term third trimester abortions. It's ghoulish and grisly as hell.
