Why do women have partial birth abortions?

I was wondering for anyone out there who may know...Why do women wait until they are so far along to have an abortion? I hear women having them at 20-24 weeks??? That's crazy being that babies are born premature that early and survive!

  • Because they are uninformed.

  • IDK. Unfortunately, there are lots of "elective" late-term abortions. Check out info on George Tiller and Martin Haskell if you want more info. It's really sad b/c there are too many PBAs in the US. I actually know a girl who had an abortion at George Tiller's clinic, simply b/c she was upset with the father. She told the clinic that she was depressed and they killed her baby. Sad, but true.
