Partial birth abortion is a political term.

Check again. Its a colloquialism for the medical term "intact dilatation and extraction". Do you understand that term? Didn't think so, neither would 99% of the population, thus the colloquialism.

Why do you have the right to force a woman to have major surgery to deliver a fetus that isn't going to survive?

Again, you're showing you're medical ignorance and lack of history. Partial birth abortion is used for pregnancies over 24 weeks gestation. Fetal/baby survival is now at 23 weeks gestation. So, banning partial birth abortions, which the reasoning of SCOTUS would now ban, is having a surgery for a fetus/baby that can survive.
