in cases where mother's life is at risk, but a later term healthy baby can be safely removed instead of aborted... and thus both mother and child saaved, this should be required. abortion should not be an option.

after six months or so of pregnancy, abortion in the US is restricted to only cases involving health of the mother. (to be sure, this includes much abuse for 'mental health' etc) if even a healthy baby MUST be aborted to save the mother, msot including me would agree it's the right thing to do. to be sure, however.... healthy babies are too often aborted in the name of saving the mother, when labor could be induced or teh baby somehow otherwise simply removed, instead of abortion.
the mother shouldn't have the option to abort a healthy baby when it can jsut be removed.

i want to stress again that we are talking about later term babies, so i'd argue the talk about rape is much less of an issue, given the woman had plenty of time to abort when it was more legally and morally debatable to abort. stress the morally part

Before starting off the debate I would like to ask for reliable evidence to support that this is in fact happening as you say it commonly is. I believe it would tremendously help further the debate.To my knowledge, abortions are a last resort option. If this is all speculative without plausible reasoning to believe it is happening, I see no point in debating it.
