Phoenix: I’m not saying all are fubared for life, but some may be. All depending on how pre-mature the baby was born. The earlier the larger the risks. Once the baby is out, and can be saved, the time-frame for termination has long passed.
Yes, some may be, and anything before 28 weeks or so is pretty much fubared for life. But I don’t find it okay to say that the baby must be able to be self-sustained directly at birth in order to qualify as a human life.
Phoenix: With that said, the man also chooses to have sex, and should have a say if the pregnancy is terminated or not. If it’s about choices having consequnces and responsibility beeing shared by those participating.
Now that’s a very interesting point that I mentioned at some point and I don’t think was fully examined. I don’t feel that a man should ever have the right to force (legally) the woman to have an abortion. However, it strikes me as absolutely horrible if the woman were to decide to have the abortion even if the man wanted to keep the child. Should a man have the legal right to force the woman to go to term (assuming no health risks to the woman)? Or should a woman have the right to kill a man’s child against his wishes?
