Subject:  Poll: When should abortion be legal/banned Date:  7/10/2013  11:15 AM

Texas is looking to ban all abortions after 20 weeks with a few exception circumstances. My feeling is that people as a whole fall somewhere in the middle.

They don't want a woman who's 36 weeks pregnant to be allowed an abortion because she "no longer wants the baby" because at 36 weeks, that baby could live outside the womb.

At the same time I don't think most people have a problem with morning after pills or any procedure in the first 4 or 5 weeks.

So where do you fall?
