Do you think the legal cut off of 23 weeks is ok as it is, should be later, or should be earlier?

I am not pro abortion but I am pro choice. There's a difference ;-).
And I didn't know it's 23 weeks in the US. Although I'm very liberal with this stuff, I think that's a little too crazy. In my country Switzerland it's 12 weeks (3 months) and I think that's pretty good. 4 months (16 weeks) would also be acceptable in my opinion but anything beyond that shouldn't be allowed unless it's for very severe reasons (rape, terrible disability in the unborn etc.). To my knowledge, you can do a pregnancy test after about a month. So if the cut-off line is 12 weeks like in my country, that still gives you 2 months to think about it. In my opinion, that's enough time to make up your mind.1

I'm pro-choice, not pro-abortion, so let's get that straight first before I comment.
I think 23 weeks is too far along. I think 12 weeks or within the first trimester is more reasonable. Most women find out within the first month or two they are pregnant so that's plenty of time to decide. If you're one of the rare cases that doesn't find out until like month 6 or 7, that's a bit different. I don't have a clue about that, I would say at the point it's too late.0
