    I understand if a woman was raped why she would feel the need to which is why they can easily prevent pregnancy with the pill. But, for any one to wait so long is just horrible. To have that life within torn to pieces all while alive. It is horrible and needs to end. I know abortion will never be illegal but there needs to be a limit such as two months

    What are the chances! A Texas woman talking all night long! You have to wonder about any woman that delays having an abortion after 5 months. I guess if she's in a coma then that would be an excuse? Rape or something of that nature wouldn't you want an abortion early on? For the most part it's irresponsible to wait until a child is that far along to do this. Character and moral fiber has to be in question. This should just make the Liberals in Austin "MOIST" at the thought of continuing their lifestyle.
