32. I agree, but I'm going to nitpick about one small detail.

IT IS UP TO THE WOMAN AND HER HUSBAND OR PATNER.


Sorry if I sound nitpicky, but "partner" implies a committed relationship, which is not always the case. A lot of sex takes place between people who are not in a committed relationship with each other, and sometimes pregnancies result. That's just a fact. A woman who gets pregnant from a one night stand (for example) isn't necessarily going to ask her fuck buddy for his opinion about what she should do, nor should she have to.

There are also women who are trying to get out of an abusive relationship and find themselves unexpectedly pregnant. I've read stories about women getting an abortion in those situations because it would be too flat out dangerous to have a child tying them to their abuser.

Then there are all those rape and incest situations.

These are just a few examples of cases where there is no "partner" or where the "partner" is someone who the woman would rather not involve in her decision. I think the way I would state it is this: "It is up to the woman and whoever SHE chooses to involve in the decsion."

I hope I'm making myself clear. I'm half asleep at the moment, so it's hard to be sure.
