    A lot of the late term abortions come because the person seeking it is young/poor and was blocked early on in the process. Make access better and a lot of the reason nutters are so tuned up about it just goes away.

      Most third-trimester abortions are medically necessary to save the life of the pregnant woman.  Yes, it is true that younger and poorer women face greater obstacles to safe and legal abortion.  But that doesn't change the facts that  1) there are relatively few third-trimester abortions, and  2) those that do happen are not elective procedures.
