I don't think the issue is whether the individual has the right to choose to suit her moral disposition, but rather the moral disposition of a society as a whole that allows the killing of fetuses as a completely unfettered right. It is the same as the death penalty, or killing in a war. Each of us carries the moral weight of the killing that is done in our name, or with our implicit blessing.
I think the government policy should be along the lines of 'safe, legal, & never.' While the option should be there, in the case of serious health issues, etc, our government should be spending money on education and the availability of birth control to reduce the number of abortions to as low as possible.
