I'm not sure i understand, do you mean, delayed due to processing the abortion?
And if so, exceptions are commonly made, we're talking of second trimester abortions at the most here; Most jurisdictions allow that, especially so in the U.K.
But if you find that's not the case in certain areas, i support that notion.
Detailing when the fetus meets the criteria (However that's defined) is a difficult task, but my views are within the second trimester; Anything later than that is murky bar medical necessity, or the infant being unable to survive.
It would just make the process faster instead of delaying it until someone else has made a decision.
But purely for monitoring and ensuring abuse does not occur, i'd wish for abortions approaching the limit, or at the limit, to be looked over at least.
The vast majority of women do not abort in the late-term, or do so when nearing the end of the legally mandated time-limit; But for those that do, i'd wish for it to be overlooked by someone specialized in the area at least.
Not to approve it, but to understand why it's being carried out so late in comparison to others; And to see if other external influences are playing a factor (Financial, emotional, ect)
Again i am for abortion and i am not displeased in any way by my country choices, but to say that women dont perform abortion if no danger, would be very unrealistic, when its the opposite, most abortion are done for all the other reasons more than danger.

The vast majority of abortions that happens when the woman is in no danger happens before week 9. Of the remaining ones most happens before week 15, if I remember correctly. Very, very few actually happens the last week it's allowed. The abortions that are done past the freely allowed limit are done because of health risks or defects. I think it's safe to assume that there would be no abortions taking place in the 8th month of pregnancy even if it was legal, for any other reason than health reasons or defects. This would just simply easen up the delay due to paperwork.

Hypothetical. You have a car. The engineers say it's not ready for shipment. The CEO goes ahead and ships it anyway. Months later it winds up killing a bunch of people for a defect the engineers hadn't yet worked out.
Certainly the CEO (the one responsible for the shipment) is culpable, but do you hold the engineers responsible too? Of course not.
I'm surprised you think consent to sex means consent to parenthood despite the fact that this very idea is what feminist groups have been fighting against for ages.
Like i said people would logically think what you said, but its not whats happening in practice.
