What is the moral difference between aborting an 8 month old foetus and a 1 week old baby?
Both have developed the ability to feel pain. Both rely on mother to survive.
I am not trying to start an abortion debate. I’m firmly pro choice. However I have heard one good argument from the pro life side: why are people outraged at the thought of a one week old with disabilities being killed however fine with a mother aborting an 8 month old after finding out it has a disability? Obviously the 8 month old is still inside and attached to the mother, but it could very well survive outside at this stage. Seems like cognitive dissonance to me.

People are probably more concerned about how long it has lived to believe its ethical morality of a mothers decision
