The thread question was about legal exceptions to abortion laws. If you make late stage abortions illegal, then that counts as an exception (actually that makes early stage abortions the exception, but it is the same thing).
The argument Bill et al are making is that abortion should be viewed a a simple issues with no exceptions.
I am trying to make the point that once you start making exceptions, then you can't complain about people who make different exceptions which is why the nice simple black and white, cut-and -dry view on this issue runs into problems.
Of course, if people here really believe that terminating a pregnancy should be legal until the moment of birth (meaning that ending a late term pregnancy where there is a fully developed baby is perfectly legal)
then the point I am trying to make doesn't work.
