Why is that different? Its a inconvenience for the mother? Is is the fault of what is growing inside what happened?
See, this is what happens when you have a moral view of abortion, but not a principled view..you get these strange loopholes and oddness.
What about date rape? What about semi-rape where a person was really really drunk and was arguably out of control, etc..
No...its all the same..stand on a principle based in understanding biology..toss away the weird sliding scale morality..else your eventually going to

And she is, by outside standards, that typical facebook lalala who is the president type.
So..ya..it really is just a old man rant verses any truism..and no..she is not the exception. I could go on about her friends also, and frankly, they
all seem far more motivated and responsible in their young 20s than I was, or any of my friends...
What your complaining about is a meme...a horribly inaccurate stereotype that has been around for thousands of years.
That's all..sorry I interrupted the convo you were having.
