23. Can you point me to a nation that allows an unfettered right to abortion up to the moment of birth?

The SCOTUS in Roe V Wade established a schedule that weighs the rights of the mother versus the viability of the fetus. The further along in pregnancy the female is the greater the interest of the state.

It's right wingers who try to obfuscate the issue and portray those who support a woman's right to choose as favoring infanticide.

Here's at least one link for this. highprincipleswork Jun 2016 #1

And I've watched her be interviewed for TV lapfog_1 Jun 2016 #12
