Is Late-Term Abortion Ever Necessary
Mary L. Davenport, M.D., FACOG (Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists) reiterates what I've been saying:
1. The Supreme Court invented post-viability abortions in Roe and Doe.
2. Most late abortions are done for the same reasons as earlier abortions; they're just done later.
3. A lot of doctors are referring women for abortions without telling the women that there are other, less drastic treatment options.
4. If you do need to end a pregnancy after viability, the standard of care is to do it by delivering a live baby, either by inducing labor or via c-sections.
5. A lot of parents are given incomplete information when being urged to abort after a prenatal diagnosis.
6. Even a lethal condition in an unborn baby can leave the possibility of live birth and a meaningful, if short, time with the child.
