iirc it takes 9 months to birth a human on average. So someone could say abortion should be allowed at 8.9 month and someone can also say just 1 week.
I’m waiting for someone to say abortion should be allowed at 8.9 months cause i want to hear the reasoning.
Here’s my hot take: (ib4 ban) we should develop tech like artificial uteruses and just move unwanted baby/fetus/idk-the-terminology into these instead BUT we should also have a comprehensive social welfare program to raise ALL children/humans, and not conservative welfare where it’s like 1 mother figure taking care of 6 children with food stamps.
Given what i know about 2022 technology: if conservatives gave a hoot about child/fetus welfare, they’re have comprehensive social welfare programs, which would reduce the number of abortions bc at least the mother figure won’t be #rekt financially by have 6 kids.

If you’re taking this stance then you must also take the stance that a baby with Down Syndrome would not survive on it’s own in a pre-modern, natural selectionist era. Keeping it alive, nurturing and caring for it until you die, and then having them cared for through an institution until they die is extremely unnatural. Why would you bring someone into this life if they’re doomed to suffer? That seems awful to me. I’m sure we’ll just have to agree to disagree, but I can’t see the logic in it.
i’d be interested in this debate, if @whom replies!
Yeah I’m down to debate a little. I’m obviously getting some flak, but I just don’t understand how they can be for abortion to be allowed any time and then say that if the baby is in bad physical or mental condition, you shouldn’t because you’re doing something awful? It’s a contradictory claim.
what motivates that claim is a specific kind of cases where the abortion because of the disability and no other factor.
that claim is referring to cases where someone wants a child, and gets pregnant, and when they’re told that the child is autistic or has down syndrome they back down and no longer want them. That’s ableist.
that situation is different from an unplanned pregnancy.
a step in the right direction would be to have infrastructure that accommodates for mobility disabilities, education about parenting would be good as well
If the baby isn’t born, it’s the sole discretion of the mother. Ableist or not, the mother reserves that right.
