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?

What if your daughter was this girl, who became pregnant at the age of 5? Lina Medina - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I'm trying to see where people will draw the line here.
I see that differently. I cannot see how a 5 year old can carry to term and then deliver a baby safely. So I would view it as a medically necessary abortion.
