What is the reason to defend killing viable children in utero in non-life-threatening situations?

We can't have an intellectually honest discussion if you're going to willfully pretend abortions never happen in non-life-threatening situations (legally, no less).
Women whose fetuses have terrible abnormalities, Robinson said, "are a lot easier for people to understand. The husband and wife want to spare their baby whatever suffering that baby would have."

During the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s the United stated had very strong patriotic citizens.
No exception. Learn English and pledge your allegiance to the country.
