Because without the woman, it cannot survive.Ask me before I'd really challenged my own beliefs on the issue a few months ago and I'd agree with you. The question is why? Why is it okay to end it's life at 10 weeks but not 20? It's not good enough to just say "well 10 weeks just doesn't feel as bad".
We can't decide whether or not it's acceptable to end a life based on gut feelings and emotions. Decisions like these need to be decided upon based on a rationale and evidence, otherwise we're all just wasting our time.
And a rape victim experiencing ptsd shouldnt have to experience further trauma of carrying a pregnancy. Because if she’s suicidal and having to have a forced pregnancy, well she’ll be forced to deal with it herself.
