Late-Term Abortions Generally Not Done for Health Reasons

Contrary to a suggestion by Hillary Clinton during the final debate with Donald Trump, women who get late-term abortions generally do not do so for health reasons, according to the Washington Examiner.

In one study cited by the Examiner, women who had late-term abortions generally did so for the same reasons most women get an abortion.

“Data suggest that most women seeking later terminations are not doing so for reasons of fetal anomaly or life endangerment,” wrote Diana Greene and Katrina Kimport, professors at the University of California, San Francisco’s Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health.

“Despite this common narrative, women in our study who obtained first-trimester abortions and women who obtained abortions at or after 20 weeks’ gestation were remarkably similar.”

According to the study, women seeking later abortions were raising children alone, were depressed or using banned substances, were experiencing domestic violence or other conflict, were young, or had trouble deciding what to do.

“The kinds of cases that fall at the end of pregnancy are often the most heartbreaking, painful decisions for families to make,” Clinton said during the debate. “I have met with women who have, toward the end of their pregnancy, get the worst news one could get.”

  1. IMO, murder is the term that should be used for late term abortions. Babies weighing as little as 1lb. have been known to survive and thrive outside the womb.
    The question is why do the Dems promote Planned Parenthood and see they are located at inner city locations where the majority of abortions are done to Black babies. For all their platitudes about racial matters, and their concern for the Black family, the Dems should be leading the argument to repeal DoevsWade.
    IMO, the Dems are so disappointed with the Black community that hasn’t lived up to it’s potential despite 60 years of Civil Rights legislation and trillions of dollars invested that they don’t care the Black community will be the most minority of all groups in the USA.
    Estimates are that Hispanics now surpass the number of Blacks here. The only Africans the Dems seem to care about now are those from North Africa, not the sub-Saharan areas.
    The Dems might try to convince everyone that Muslims from N. African countries are a “race”, but reality says they are White people, the same way that Hispanics from Mexico or S.American countries are White, too.

    Hypocrites, all. Closet racists who protest too much. Liars. Evil, ugly, and shameful.
    If they cared about children, as MrsClinton claims in her political ads, and if they cared about the Black community, then abortion would be only used in certain, clearly defined and reasonable situations.

    • Like it or not…Its the law of the land and its not going to change. Short of a major major push to change.
      Every election the Dems drag this out to beat up Republicans. Its just an election ploy for the dems. We fall for it every time!!
      Its just bait…..bait….false !!

      • Law of the land. That is a funny name for murder.
        We worry about, and treat dogs better than the unborn in this country.
        It is shameful is what it is.

  2. Shoot, I knew Huckstery was lying about this. Women who get late term abortions are nothing more than murderers. How on earth can anyone condone this? What defense is there? None. That is why Clinton lies about it. She has a heart of frozen stone.
