A law that would've banned abortions sought because of a fetus' genetic abnormalities has been blocked by a federal judge in Indiana. Should there be laws to protect life while still in the uterus?

  • To an extent

    Killing an embryo or fetus should not be allowed unless the physical or mental health of the mom is at risk. If the baby Is severely deformed and won't live long and will only harm the mother physically ,the mom should be able to abort it. Its sad but it would need to happen.

  • Yes, there should be laws to protect life while still in the uterus, to an extent.

    Yes, there should be laws to protect life while still in the uterus, to an extent. If a mother has just learned that she is pregnant, she should have a choice in the matter. However, if the mother is noticeably pregnant - eight or nine months in the pregnancy, and the baby is healthy, then there should be laws to protect the baby.

  • There should not be laws to protect life while in the uterus.

    I am a firm believer in the legality of abortion, especially in circumstances of rape and circumstances where the life of the child or the mother will be negatively impacted if the child is born. It is proven that a fetus is not yet of mental capacity to be a human being yet, and this judge in Indiana should not be able to push his personal beliefs on women.

  • It's a woman's choice

    The woman carrying the fetus and ultimately responsible for the care of the child to be born should have absolute authority to choose what she would like to do with said fetus. If she feels that genetic abnormalities are enough for her to not want a child born with difficulties, that is up to her. Of course, depending on the severity of the abnormalities, this should only be allowed up until a certain gestational age.

  • No, there should not be laws like this.

    Many believe that a woman has a right to terminate a pregnancy if she wants to. They believe that this decision is a private one between a woman and her doctor. Furthermore, when a fetus is found to have genetic abnormalities then a woman should be able to terminate the pregnancy. Therefore, no, there should not be laws that treat a fetus as a living person; giving it the same rights as someone living.
