45. It's not.

I have worked with babies who have had massive birth defects - things most people don't see, things that may cause you to avert your eyes. Blind, deaf, malformed, without the ability to suck to get any comfort because there is no real face. Uncontrollable seizures, pumped full of medicine and formula to keep them alive with horrible side effects. Constantly needing to be suctioned to live.

Suctioned all day and all night.

Screaming in pain, alive with virtually no pleasure, only pain.

Yes, some parents of these children chose to continue their pregnancy, and because medical intervention can keep many babies alive, but not living, the baby pays every day until they die. It's the pregnant woman's choice. Just like some choose not to abort and it works out and everyone is grateful, some choose not to abort and the effects of their decisions, with massive medical bills to match that bankrupt and exhaust families, are horrific.

Some others choose, with the help and advice of medical professionals, to abort. People have the right to make the choice that you may not agree with, but that may be the most compassionate and humane choice to be made in their particular case. Trust me, no one celebrates that choice late in a pregnancy. No one.
