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.
I think the term abortion as a medical procedure is the wrong term. No one performs “an abortion” for an abruptio placenta or placenta previa”.....A C-section is done.
In fact, there really shouldn’t be many reasons for a late term abortion. My understanding is that Tiller was performing almost all of his abortions on the pretense that the birth would cause psychological harm.
I suspect CARHART is using the same rational.
