GUEST,282RA BS: New Supreme court decision on abortion (77* d) RE: BS: New Supreme court decision on abortion 20 Apr 07

I don't care what a partial birth abortion is or what it entails. Meaningless chatter really. The question is, if the mother's life is in danger by delivering a baby such that the baby can be delivered but the mother will die or the mother can be saved but the baby will die, who gets to make that choice?

I say the parents first off. It should be something they've already discussed so the decision should be settled already. If neither is capable of making the choice for some reason, it should be up to the doctor and he should base his decision on which has a better chance to survive--mother or infant.

It should not be up to a court at all. It should never reach a court. It should never have to go that far. It's a personal matter between the couple and their doctor. The baby doesn't get a vote--sorry--and neither should anyone else.
