United States Supreme Court decision Doe v. Bolton, 1973:
The medical judgment [for a late-term abortion] may be exercised in the light of all factors—physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age—relevant to the well-being of the patient. All these factors may relate to health. This allows the attending physician the room he needs to make his best medical judgment. And it is room that operates for the benefit, not the disadvantage, of the pregnant woman.
On this criteria, virtually any reason a woman gives to have a third-trimester abortion is sufficient. "After viability, the state may ‘proscribe’ abortion only when the woman considering abortion can find no physician willing to say that her mental health would, for example, be ‘taxed by child care’ or suffer ‘distress … associated with the unwanted child,’“ write Dennis J. Horan and Thomas J. Balch. In effect, if a woman could find an abortionist willing to perform a third-trimester abortion, she could have one.
This is a current ad for the Orlando Women’s Center located in Florida. Do you still think that I am an ‘uneducated ignorant moron’ spreading lies? Or could it be that you simply don’t want to face the reality of human abortion.
