he said:

"all your arguments only take the psychological and physical welfare of the woman into account, not once have you mentioned the welfare of the child ".

And he is correct, I just can't agree that the foetus is a life form deserving of rights. does that make me a bad person.
I somewhat arbitrary assigned welfare status at 3-4 months as the cut off point because of my own judgement of the tipping point of it being "a real boy".

So I'm not really pro choice because I would be upset if abortions are done past 4 months .

I'm pro choice with conditions:
Mandatory (if possible) Psychological counselling before and after.
No post 4 months abortions without 2 x medical professionals agreement
Sixteen years and older have authority on who is notified about the pregnancy/abortion.
Religion and the father of the child have no rights over the woman or the unborn lifeform.

is this in line with most peoples opinions ?

It works...
