The situation illuminates the problem with gestational time-lines as a basis for abortion law. When did pain become the determining factor for whether or not a person or animal is deserving of life... ? After all, there are adults who don't feel pain. May we kill them?
In the decades to come, our posterity too will look back and join in [John] Adams' words:
"We understand now, we've been made to understand, and to embrace the understanding... that who we are IS who we were."
So, some seriously ill patients might get rationed out of a stay in hospital, or receive less than optimal care due to a nursing shortage, as money will be diverted to older women so they can give birth past their time? I'm sorry, but that is just plain nuts.
