LEGAL RIGHTS OF THE UNBORN
C. The courts ruling makes abortion on demand at any time of the pregnancy possible.
The state may not establish any regulations that restrict the practice of abortion during the first tri-mester. During the second tri-mester the state may establish some guidelines. During the final tri-mester the state may manifest a concern for the potential of human life . . . unless the abortion is necessary to protect the life or health of the mother.
1. If the court ruled that the unborn is not a person until birth, why are any guidelines necessary?
2. Medical evidence indicated these trimester segments, while convenient, are superficial. The only defensible, scientific stance is that life begins at conception.
3. The latter portion of the ruling, ". . . for the health of the mother," quite effectively means that a woman can obtain an abortion AT ANY TIME PRIOR TO BIRTH FOR ANY REASON. ROE V. WADE, DOE V. BOLTON. Decision and arguments.
