6. Since there's no such thing as a legal, frivolous, late-term abortion
I support the rights of women and their doctors to determine what's appropriate medical treatment and what isn't.

Saying that I oppose the late-term abortion of a healthy fetus is like saying that I oppose driving on the left side of a two-lane road. Having an opinion on it isn't necessary, because it's already both illegal and HIGHLY unlikely to happen except for emergencies.
