RE: This Shouldn't Be Ambiguous ... Should It?
There should be no ambiguity in a law on this topic, no matter what your overall stand on abortion is.
There should be a clearly understood cut off point. The unborn child’s status should be clearly stated and they should also have a certain level of protection, even if that is only regarding who has a determining factor in the decision making of a termination taking place. I know in Great Britain it is two registered medical practitioners who have to agree.
Ireland had a referendum last year on abortion and now allow termination to take place in the first trimester (12 weeks) and only later if their is a risk to the pregnant woman’s health, or the foetus faces fatal abnormalities.
