Abortion should be legal in — first trimester: 61 percent second trimester: 27 percent third trimester: 14 percent (Gallup, 2013) Contrast this with abortion practices in the United States: Thirty-three percent of women will have an abortion in their lifetimes. 2 million abortions are performed every year. Twenty percent of pregnancies end in abortion (40 percent in New York City). Ninety percent of fetuses diagnosed with Down syndrome are aborted. 120,000 abortions are performed in the second and third trimesters.

That we can admit that the fetus is a human being but not a person means that a new Copernican revolution is already in progress. We have already rejected the theological idea that the earth is the center of the physical universe, but Singer argues that our culture is in the process of rejecting the theological idea that the human being is the center of the moral universe. Is Singer right to say that what many value in the fetus is not her humanity but rather her having certain traits? I think he’s on to something.

In some ways, the abortion policy in the United States rests on his evolving views. Even more important than this, perhaps, is what the trends indicate for the future of American abortion politics. 45 But those who view Europe as more progressive than the United States is on social issues like abortion might be surprised to learn that the Texas law is rather tame by comparison to European restrictions. 47 How does the government justify this new legislation? Commitment to international treaties and laws.
