24. btw, I got involved in an argument about abortion on twitter

 

and these two anti-abortion types were saying there's "no medical reason for abortion" or "no medical necessity for abortion", which sounds totally wrong to me. I asked them what that meant but they didn't respond, but they were making a big deal about it, and ranting about abortion in general.

I'm guessing this argument is something the anti-abortion people like to throw out and revolves on some weird definition of abortion and medical reason/necessity.

Personally I had an experience with abortion where my girlfriend had an ectopic pregnancy and it was necessary to terminate the pregnancy, we were not going to terminate otherwise. So that seems like a medical reason for an abortion to me.

But I'm wondering if these abortion foes have some odd way of defining abortion. Do you know this argument at all?
