I am pro choice except for late term abortions and I'll explain why.

At that point, the baby can feel pain, kick, has a beating heart, and can live outside the mother's womb. I mean, if a woman has an abortion at eight months, and another mother delivers a baby prematurely at seven months, and one month later decides to kill it, she would go to jail for murder, while the mother who had the abortion would face no legal consequences.

I don't know, I just find it odd that someone would wait so long to choose abortion (barring medical issues)

In this case, should we allow mothers to kill their children that have been born up to a certain age? At what point to we consider a baby or fetus worth protecting?

Luckily, late term abortions are very rare.

I'm a pro-choice. BUT I do not believe in abortion without some serious medical issue warranting it and even then, I hesitate to take a life. If someone else wishes to do that, them and ONLY them have to live with their choice for the rest of their lives.

I think many people make SICK CHOICES in their life. But it's THEIR choice. Someone who does a 3rd trimester abortion is SICK IMO because that's a terrible thing to do to a baby who can feel, hear, sense things. It's as bad as murder. But, your CHOICE as the person who does it. Just as I believe in CHOICE I also believe in consequence. If you choose to make a decision, I won't stand in your way, but I am not about to support it if I don't agree with it.

So, my choice to not support someone in a 3rd trimester abortion is my choice too. Therefore, everything is a choice and that I cannot take away from anyone.

It should be Pro-abortion or Anti-abortion. Not pro-life or pro-choice. Those are not very good words for something so literally life-changing.
