    Its not the babies fault, so if not care for then adoption

    Life's not fair or just, but that fact shouldn't cost the most innocent their lives.

    If it saves one baby its worth it.

    No. Just that it may not be easy to gather 400 bucks if you're poor to begin with. Living from a comfortable high perch everything seems cheaper I guess.

    So - we should not limit the time to get an abortion because some people might be poor?

    You know what - it doesn't look like THAT has stopped anyone seeing as how most are done before that time *and* a majority are done for the poor.

    Surely you're not suggesting we base such views on the COST and how people might come up with the money.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    On the contrary, I think it should be limited, I'm just answering your question as to why it may take longer than 12 weeks to afford an abortion.

    I am sure this law will be struck down and the SCOTUS will have a 5-4 decision basically removing all Roe time limits on abortion, not that I agree with that.

    Actually, what it depends on is when it becomes a person, and under the constitution, that happens at birth

    Until then, the govt can't ban abortion; it can only regulate beginning at viability (and at 12 weeks, it's not viable)

    The word has several meanings. As used in the constitution, by the authors, it means a human that has been born.

    So you can stop picking cherries.
