I agree.

There should be no ambiguity in a law on this topic, no matter what your overall stand on abortion is.

There should be a clearly understood cut off point. The unborn child’s status should be clearly stated and they should also have a certain level of protection, even if that is only regarding who has a determining factor in the decision making of a termination taking place. I know in Great Britain it is two registered medical practitioners who have to agree.

Ireland had a referendum last year on abortion and now allow termination to take place in the first trimester (12 weeks) and only later if their is a risk to the pregnant woman’s health, or the foetus faces fatal abnormalities.

The law is already written that states after 24 weeks and abortion is illegal unless its a risk to the mother's life. I thought that was already pretty cut and dry.

I guess New York just wasn't happy with that.

12 weeks sounds much better to me.

I was nervous writing about this. I just don't understand how some people think this is okay.

I can understand your reservation. There are many topics that have been taken and used as battlegrounds. This is, unfortunately, one of them. But it needs to be talked about maturely, where both sides are listened to and a sensible resolution is found.

This post is a good start to this. Hopefully any comments that follow will keep to a line of discourse that shares opinion but does not attack. I find it very worrying that our society at large appears to be so poor at this.

Great post with valid concerns and I agree with your opinion as discussed this does feel like a spiteful move which will either bring out the best or worst in society and then it might be re-evaluated.

I think this brings out the worst first... when you have a slap of reality that the country you live in will pass laws like this, its starts a chain effect... next was virginia and there are other states wanting to hop on that bandwagon.

Whoa! I am so proud of you for taking on this controversial and difficult topic and also for taking the time to do all this research with unbiased facts in order to share it and bring it out into the open.

It truly is a strange time and there are some very difficult points to this that very few talk about and that is organ harvesting. There I said it. Not pretty but it is happening. Okay that is about all I can say as it really upsets me to think about.

I was happy to see in polls that the majority of Americans from every political affiliation, feel this is way over the line. However, it is a very heated topic generally and so not enough people speaking up.

Truly a great post, @monchhichi23 Should have been a curie!

Thank you doll!! I really appreciate that... and yes I didn't even get into the big business of organ harvesting that's happening under everyone's noses. This all just makes me sick... I understand completely.

I feel like we are living on another planet where savages rule the world. It seems like the problems that used to be found in small towns are spreading everywhere now.

It's funny that the majority of Americans are against this and yet there's not enough people speaking up... Americans are usually loud and in your face.

Love you Wings. 🖤

Thank you for sharing this post @monchhichi23,

Your article is clear, but I wish I could say the same for the law. It used to be that laws in Korea were totally ambiguous compared to American laws, but now grey seems the international political color.

Mr. Bean has more fluency in expressing an honest logical statement than agenda tied compromised politicians. It is not for a lack of words but a lack of guts.

Thank you my friend. I have to admit that I was very nervous to write about this and wasn't sure I was going to post it when I was finished. I'm glad I did... I'm finding more people feel like me than I thought.

Thank you @mineopoly 🖤🖤🖤

Great post . I like how you took a stand and expressed how this affected you. I will never understand how a women could go through an abortion without tons of regret down the road.
So glad this bill to allow abortions up to birth did not pass. it makes me sick to think it would even be an option. U&R

Thank you Red. I normally don't get into issues of a political nature but this is something I've always felt strongly about. I'm thankful that it didn't pass in Virginia too but New York had no problem passing that bill.

Thanks Red. 🖤🖤🖤

I heard about this. And i can't believe it. Most countries in the world prohibit abortions so late into a pregnancy. 24 weeks .... That's really far along. Some babies are born and live a full life at 25 - no doubt not an easy start.

It's really sad @kchitrah. When I saw so many women cheer when this passed I got sick to my stomach.
