IVF and Abortion

Does IVF Change a Woman's Right to Choose?

It's a woman's right to choose to end a pregnancy, but should any consideration be given to how she became a mama-to-be? A British Report examines women who use IVF and then abort the fetuses. It said:

Many are in their teens, twenties and early thirties, implying that numerous abortions were carried out for social reasons, rather than on health grounds. Relationship breakdowns, fears about motherhood and simple changes of heart are all likely to have played a part in the terminations.

Do you think there is a difference between terminating an intentional pregnancy versus a surprise one?
