So using their logic that its not a ban on guns or an infringement on the 2nd amendment then states can ban elective abortions and abortions after 15 weeks and therefore should not be considered an infringement on abortion.

While I am pro-choice, I am not pro-abortion.

Dawkins has a solid point - many pro-life people don't think beyond the carrying of the fetus, and the monetary and emotional weight that giving birth to the child will cause.

15 weeks is almost 4 months. Most women would know long before that if they are pregnant, so I don't actually see it as being that restrictive.
