Pro-choice leaders misrepresent abortion limits
I don’t know if they’re ignorant or lying, but pro-abort leaders who should know better are spreading flatly false information about how long in a pregnancy a mother can abort….
"Abortions are legal up until a child is born" -- a flat out lie. Roe v Wade established 24 weeks. #stopthebanSC— PP South Atlantic SC (@PPSATSC) March 18, 2015
The first tweet comes from Planned Parenthood South Atlantic in South Carolina.
The second was written by Jodi Jacobson, editor-in-chief of the pro-abortion website RH Reality Check.
Both are, of course, wrong.
The correct answer is: Abortion is legal in the United States throughout all 40 weeks/nine months of pregnancy, up to the moment of birth.

On that same day the Supreme Court handed down its decision on Roe’s companion case, Doe v Bolton, in which it defined maternal “health” as “all factors – physical, emotional, psychological, familial, and the woman’s age – relevant to the well being of the patient. All these factors may relate to health,” holding further that the abortionist alone could make that decision. This gaping loophole made abortion available on demand in the U.S. throughout all nine months of pregnancy.
The United States is one of only seven countries that allows elective abortions past 20 weeks.
The United States joins only with Canada, China, North Korea, and Vietnam as the most permissive countries in the world on abortion.
I find it hard to believe Planned Parenthood and RH Reality Check don’t know these basic abortion facts.
There would be reason to hide these facts, of course, because the reality of what Planned Parenthood and RH Reality Check actually support is so heinous.
