Sorry Trump, abortions do not happen at 9 months pregnant

By  | 

Donald Trump painted a picture of abortion in America in which doctors are “rip(ping) the baby out of the womb” the day before a baby is due to be born. However, medical experts have refuted that claim.

Trump said the following at the debate:

I think it’s terrible if you go with what Hillary is saying in the ninth month you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby.

Now, you can say that that’s okay, and Hillary can say that that’s okay, but it’s not okay with me. Because based on what she’s saying and based on where she’s going and where she’s been, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb in the ninth month, on the final day. And that’s not acceptable.

An estimate by the federal government reveals that 91.4% of abortions in the United States occur within the first 13 weeks of presidency. Only 1.3% of abortions occur later than 21 weeks into presidency. Zero occur on “the final day,” which by definition would not be an abortion, it would be classified as an infanticide.

Some of the latest examples of terminated pregnancies involve obstetricians inducing pregnancy at 36 weeks if parts of the baby’s brain are missing and it is confirmed that the baby will not be able to survive.
