No, it violates women's rights.
Yes, that's a good idea.
I'm not sure.

No. Forced religion is unconstitutional. Years ago women were given the true facts of the progress of their pregnancy and counselled and had to wait more days before they could have one. In this day and age a scan would work better. I am opposed to the lies and then when women find out later they regret their decision. I know more women who have regretted their decision than those that have had one and not regretted it. I am pro choice, BUT, they need to know the facts and not the info a 'few' scientists claim. ie, they feel no pain at 20 weeks. There is most definitely pain. Ask any preemie nurse or doctor. There are a few other outdated info given that has been debunked. I do not judge anyone for their abortion, but I do get tired of hearing, I wouldn't have done it if I had known.......

There should be some kind of counselling involved. It is an incredibly major step.

No. They do need to know all the facts about the fetus as most women are not aware of just how viable they are at certain weeks.
