Why women have late abortions


Have abortion opponents ever considered why a woman might wait to terminate her pregnancy until after 20 weeks?


By The Week Staff | July 17, 2013


Have abortion opponents ever considered why a woman might wait to terminate her pregnancy until after 20 weeks? asked Darshak Sanghavi. Only 1 percent of all abortions occur later, yet Texas last week joined a growing number of other Republican-controlled states in setting 20 weeks as the legal limit. As a pediatric cardiologist specializing in high-risk births, I have worked with many women who’ve chosen to abort after 20 weeks. They wait that long not because of carelessness or heartlessness, but because comprehensive fetal testing such as anatomical sonograms and heart ultrasounds can’t be reliably performed until around the 20th week. Only then do some women discover that their fetus has a severe brain malformation, missing organs, or devastating chromosomal problems. Though severe birth defects are rare, they affect thousands of pregnancies every year in Texas alone. The decision to terminate pregnancies in such cases is always “heartrending.” Now lawmakers have taken that decision away from parents, with an exception only for defects that would result in immediate death at birth. Do we really want to leave such judgments to politicians?

I'd have to think twice before bringing a child such as the above into the world.
