As for beginning of life v viability, without viability there is no life. It is a specious argument.

As for imposing beliefs, I think the problem is select moral beliefs by a minority christian group that has most folks on the pro choice side's knickers in a knot. Again, if separation of Church and State is protected this becomes a medical and legal issue, which is fine. It is when fuzzy, illogical church issues are pushed that the trouble starts.
I don't think there is a question of viability in these cases.

Late-term abortions also are grueling. In 2007, the Supreme Court upheld a federal ban on one late-term procedure, sometimes called "partial-birth abortion," in which the physician begins to deliver the fetus, feet-first, then punctures its skull. Doctors are still allowed to dismember the fetus in utero. Dr. Tiller's preferred method is also legal. He stopped the fetal heart with an injection of digoxin, a drug used to treat adult heart patients. Then he would induce labor. Patients said they would wait in hotel rooms through two to three days of contractions until they were ready to deliver their stillborns at his clinic.

Such procedures discomfit some abortion doctors. William F. Harrison, who performs abortions in Fayetteville, Ark., said he considered Dr. Tiller a friend and called him "a very brave and great doctor." Yet he has long expressed concern about Dr. Tiller's willingness to abort into the ninth month. "Some of his practices are hard to defend," Dr. Harrison said.
