In CH? Or elsewhere? Which law?
Exactly this one.
Quote:
In the UK it's perfectly legal up until 23 weeks 6 days and afterwards for certain medical conditions.
Quote:
I understand the week/foetus age restrictions however by the time that point is passed, the decision to keep the baby has likely been made. Sovereignty over your own body is maintained.
It might not have been. Some of the more extreme pro-choice people do argue for abortion up to term, for any reason. So they obviously think that sovereignty isn't maintained.

Quote:
No woman in the UK would be forced to carry a baby to term if to do so would be detrimental to her mental or physical health.
After 23 weeks and 6 days it's possible they would, if continuation did not meet anyone of these requirements as determined by two doctors:

1. Prevention of grave permanent injury to the physical or mental health of the pregnant woman;
2. Risk to the life of the pregnant woman, greater than if the pregnancy were terminated;
3. Substantial risk that if the child were born it would suffer from such physical or mental abnormalities as to be seriously handicapped.

TL;DR There are circumstances where the law does not allow a woman to do what she likes with her own body. That's just a fact.
