The American Congress of Obstetricians/Gynecologists refutes the claim that a fetus is "pain capable" before 24 weeks. Also, to put this in perspective, only about 1.3% of abortions are performed after 20 weeks (92% are performed in the first trimester). Many of the cases in which abortion is performed after 20 weeks involve serious fetal abnormalities. Such abnormalities are often not detected until around week 20--and that now includes Zika virus-related microcephaly, which isn't detectable until around weeks 18-20. In such tragic cases, women face difficult and very personal decisions that are best left in their own hands, to be decided in consultation with their physicians and family based on the unique circumstances of their situation. These are not decisions we should leave up to politicians. There will always be a need for safe, legal abortion, but if you really want to see abortion rates come down, then please focus on ensuring that more women have access to birth control so they better prevent unplanned pregnancies rather than restricting access to abortion services. You could start by making sure all of us have affordable health insurance that includes coverage of contraception, maintaining Title X funding, and continuing Medicaid reimbursement for family planning services at providers like Planned Parenthood.
