Abortion is now illegal in the 2nd trimester. WTF?

I can't believe the conservative government passed this right under our nose last month. 2nd trimester = 13 weeks. What are the consequences - jail time? How could this happen? In our lifetime, Roe v Wade will be overturned. WE HAVE to do something.

I think it is legal, but only with special circumstances. I am from PA, and it has been illegal here forvever. 12 weeks was always the cut-off. Anyway, I believe that if you need more than 12 weeks to decide if you are keeping it, you have problems. I think its a great cut-off, and a good compromise. I am totally pro-choice, but the first tri-mester is really enough time.

Your comment was rude. She wasn't suggesting we kill all babies.

I am with you and totally pissed off. I guess for them Conservative means 'no government intervention' unless it has to do with the most intimate details of a one's personal life. AAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!

Or an even better idea, if you don't want to make babies take some personal responsibility and use one of the many forms of birth control out there. Then you won't have to take a life to make up for your mistake (And don't throw the rape situation at me, I agree that's a different situation, but that's a small percentage of cases).

Actually, I learned that it is illegal. It is now a federal law. You can no longer have an abortion after 12 weeks. Sometimes you don't even know you're pregnant until after the 1st trimester. Sometimes harm can come to the mother. This is a choice. It should not be against federal law. Roe V Wade is in total jeapordy.

I am the OP. This is not for a fight. This is to inform. I was in absolute shock yesterday when I learned it.

If you don't want kids either be more careful with protection or get "fixed". If you can't (or won't) take responsibilities for your actions you shouldn't do it. There should be no need for abortion unless the baby has severe deformaties or it will kill the mother or in cases of rape/insest. Hmmm ... too bad you mom didn't have the option to choose like you want.
