Meet in the Middle

So many people treat this as an all or nothing subject. This is the first place I've heard anyone modulate from what are usually diametrically opposed viewpoints. Hospitals have guidelines in determining whether or not a preterm infant receives heroic lifesaving measures. This is usually determined by how far along the pregnancy is, or by the weight of the infant. Why can we not use the same standard in abortion legislation? I personally can't see the tragedy of a few multiplying cells (that you can only see with a microscope) being terminated. But partial-birth abortions are gruesome and barbaric - a practice that I am sure gives most supporters of abortion reason to pause. Does a baby have to be delivered beyond it's shoulders to be considered a baby?
