Thanks for your response, Bamb. I‘m glad to have an international perspective. What country are you from? I see abortion as a basic right for women. I would be fine with outlawing abortion in the last three months of pregnancy, but at six weeks — before many even know they are pregnant — is oppressive. I’m amazed and upset that the US is now more backwards and oppressive towards women than Ireland, which used to be so conservative you couldn’t even get a divorce. :(
