    Personally, I don’t think abortion is as black and white as that. Obviously, there’s something worse about a third trimester abortion, than a first. Once it’s all fingers and toes, it’s way too late. But scientifically, if it’s a zygote it’s not a baby. If it’s a blastocyst, it’s not a baby. I don’t see how scraping a fertilized egg out is murder. Perhaps, unethical to some, but it’s not murder. Instead, of saying abortion is wrong all together, can’t we calmly talk about at which stage and under what circumstances it’s okay? Does everything have to be exactly what you say, or wrong? Be kind to others, this is merely a discussion.

    For those of you who argue that what she did was wrong, that this video she created was disgusting, I urge you to think a few things through.
    1) That baby is no more than a few cells that may or may not make it any way.
    2) A child is not truly sentient until well after birth.
    3) The life of that child may have been worse had she kept it
    I would also urge those of you arguing on a religious stance to refer back to the bible. Specifically Mathew 7:5 “You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.”
    You all have your own sins and faults. Go look at your self and acknowledge your own before condemning this woman for thinking about what was best for her and the child.

    Easy and safe for her; but not the baby! It’s nothing more than a woman’s right not to love her own…
