If that were the case, a c-section would have been called for, not an abortion. From a medical stand point, not too much difference in risk when considering the big picture.

Plus, read Roe v. Wade, late term abortions were effectively banned. The government has an interest (i.e. the life of the baby) at the point of viability was the ruling. Viability by current medical technology is 23 weeks.



The continued legal fights over Roe vs Wade has prevented implementation of the limits.
