Abortion should be safe, accessible and legal in this country—but it should be rare. That said, I’m going to bet that most women seeking late term abortions are doing so because of severe issues with the fetus. While a woman might choose to carry such a child to term, it is cruel to mandate that she do so. It may also be cruel for the fetus. Why allow so much suffering? Abortion should always be safe and legal for women facing a devastating choice.
