in cases where mother's life is at risk, but the 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 of pregnancy or so, 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 am confused on when you say "remove"... during a mothers pregnancy, you can not just "remove" a fetus from a womb..it would end up killing the baby as well.
and for your argument " the mother shouldn't have the option to abort a healthy baby" i completely disagree. the mother should have every right to do what she wants with her own body. if she wants to get an abortion, let her. i don't see how her decision on what to do with her body and her baby effects you.
" healthy babies are too often aborted in the name of saving the mother, when labor could be induced or the baby somehow otherwise simply removed, instead of abortion" many women, get abortions because they don't want to go through labor, and yes, you could give it up for adoption, but that costs hundreds of dollars.

go through my debates list. in the Tiller debate, i showed tons of examples. late term abortions of healthy babies for trivila reasons, like wanting to go to a rock concert, or having too many kids. etc you could simply remove the baby instead of aborting.

the mother was at least partially responsible for the babies dependance on her so not her absolute right to be free from it, especially if it means the baby should die. even the law doesn't recognize an absolute right to abortion, but doesn't do enough to require removing healthy babies etc, hence this debate. also, the mother's responsiblity for the dependence of the baby is much higher given she didn't abort when it was morally grayer the personhood, responsiblity etc.

con is confused... but such cases do exist. you can simply remove healthy babies sometimes.

"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"

You really need to prove this before simply asserting it. For all you or we know, that's never happened.
