Where do you stop?

Is a baby owned by the mother?

It is part of the mother's body, but at WHAT POINT does it become an INDIVIDUAL BEING?

6 months into pregnancy should there be an excuse for some one to carry forward an abortion? Is 6 months not too long to decide the fit of a child?

Does the baby have rights before it is born? Yes.

It is very difficult to discuss, as each case is unique. Different circumstances change a lot.

But it is always the same question:

When do you draw the line where the baby's rights become as present as those of the mother?

Life is not fair, and rights given to one party are often rights removed from the other.

The issue of ethics though looks beyond the body of the mother-to-be and the unborn child.

The issue is at what point is abortion an end to an individual's life, when he/she has already got a presence in our world?
