“Carhart says he has performed somewhere between 40,000 and 75,000 since the early 1990s “
Xs $100 per abortion. Let’s see that’s
$4,000,000 to $75,000,000. I think the first place I’d look at would be this guys tax returns.
Secondly, for a minute let’s not argue whether what he is doing is right or wrong, but assume that he actually is performing late term abortions on women who truly have a bona fide medical reason for this, (I’m not talking about the trumped up psychological reasons which are totally BS)...This should be very very very few women. And usually, these would be something that would be determined acutely...not electively...unless we’re talking about a severely deformed fetus. I think it would be very easy and proper for the state medical society to simply look at the indications given to man by his physical exam before he performs the abortions.
My understanding is that Tiller, basically had no contraindication and performed abortions on anyone, anytime, for the flimsiest of reasons.
$4,500,000 to $7,500,000
Do you have an example of a genuine medical condition that would require a partial-birth abortion rather than allowing the baby to be born the rest of the way?
I doubt there is one.
When it's that late, a c-section is more appropriate. An unscheduled c-section takes twenty minutes, an emergency one takes two. A partial-birth abortion takes two DAYS. That's not an emergency procedure. The only reason for an abortion that late to assure yourself of a dead baby.
