    Well for one, you tend to be a rational person. Two, no court needs to be involved in New York for late-term abortions and the new law clearly leaves the "reason" open-ended. Anxiety..... mental stress ...? That can certainly pass the cranioclast and mustard until they put more teeth into their law. Maybe they will play it by wait-and-see how many viable babies doctors and/or medical practitioners have to kill because the mother wants to abort due to mental or emotional stress.

    I try.

    No court is involved in most illegal acts. They get involved when someone sees something they think is illegal after the fact. The reason is not open-ended, it is specified in the law and by the supreme court. It is for the health of the mother of the child and the health of the child.

    Anxiety..... mental stress ...? That can certainly pass the cranioclast and mustard until they put more teeth into their law. Maybe they will play it by wait-and-see how many viable babies doctors and/or medical practitioners have to kill because the mother wants to abort due to mental or emotional stress.
    And how many people will die because we want to get to work on time? Lots more I wager. But aside from that bit of rhetoric, in life, you have to make balanced decisions. And we trust doctors and individuals to make these decisions because they are closest to the reality of them. Such decisions are usually not clear cut, and almost never easy. You are proposing lawmakers make these decisions for people, I am proposing they make these decisions for themselves. If we find their decisions are wildly inappropriate then the law can step in and judge them.
    Feed me some debate pellets!
