    Tim, if you are saying maybe It would be ok for the mother to carry the baby to 5 months then induce labor and spend tons of money in an ICU and hope It survives, why not just have the mother wait a few more months and give birth on time and then adopt the baby to a welcoming family?! I am libertarian and also Pro life. Come on Ian! The most basic and fundamental right we have is life. This is the only way life can be created and carried out. If you are pro choice there is still absolutely no way around the fact that you are advocating for the death of a person. Especially today when we have various ways of preventing pregnancy.
    For me as a libertarian leaning individual, the only exception I can get behind is if the mother will die if she goes through with the pregnancy. Because that can be considered self defense which is a basic human right that we have. I went through a period of time in my life where I made excuses for why abortion could be ok in certain circumstances, but ultimately I could never get away from the fact that this is a human life being killed. And people need to wrap their minds around that and then decide if they are ok with that. I firmly believe this is a topic people will look back on in the future and It think wow, I can’t believe people actually fought for the right to kill babies, much like we look. Ack and think wow, I can’t believe people owned slaves. Between abortion and the trans agenda pushing for children to have the ability to chop off their body parts and go through hormone therapy, I can’t even imagine what future generations will think of this time period.

    Tim & crew, regarding Roe V Wade context is important. Please look up SCOTUS decision in Doe V Bolton, handed down the same day as Roe V Wade, more specifically how SCOTUS agreed with the physicians definition of a women’s health. To quote in part, “that the medical judgment may be exercised in the light of all factors – physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age – relevant to the well-being of the patient. All these factors may relate to health”.

    Someone correct me if I am wrong, but the conception of a fertilized egg does not mean pregnancy. It is when the egg implants into the uterine wall that hCG is produced and the body makes changes due to the hormone. Google says up to fifty percent of fertilized eggs do not implant for varying reasons and one of the effects of birth control is prevention of implantation.

    According to Planned Parenthood, you can take abortion pills up to nine weeks well after the heart beat can be detected. That might not be for available for everyone (disease, allergies, other special circumstances) but it is an option to eliminate invasive surgeries and serious risk to the woman.

    I have always thought the Prolife Movement should push for a heartbeat bill so that we can save some children. Then, if possible, push for full ban. But, if the birth control pill basically does what the abortion pill does then what is the point?

    Abortion is evil don’t get me wrong, but I can come to terms with it before a separate heartbeat can be determined because it is the same as birth control. Birth control just skews to the side of the natural process of preventing implantation and therefore before the heart beat starts. To determine death a hundred years ago the heart was checked by searching for a pulse. Today its determined by brain activity, but if the heart cannot be replaced or revived within time, the brain is dead. If life ends at the heart beat stopping then why can’t life begin when the heart beat begins?
