I also don't really understand the distinction between a 2 week old and a minus 6 week old. Either of them dies pretty quick without a major support system.

There is a point at which the fetus is viable on its own. Most healthy babies born 6 weeks premature survive. If medical issues may force early delivery, but it really is too late to be discussing abortion for a healthy fetus.

The other issue is when the fetus isn't normal and can't be deliveried normally. Again, it is who makes the medical decisions for the woman. Should a woman be forced into major surgery (and future major surgeries) to deliver a fetus that isn't going to survive?
