You wouldn't let her decline a life-saving surgery just because she was frightened. And in fact, if she had some kind of chronic medical condition, and there were two possible treatment options (let's say, chemotherapy v. surgery to remove a tumor), you would probably make the call for her as to which treatment she should receive. Why is abortion the one and only medical procedure where she should be able to make the call?

I'm trying to see where people will draw the line here.

Thank you to the SSMC makers for my beautiful siggies!
