Reminder as Pete’s thoughtful quote goes around that later abortion care is indeed done for medical indications, but minors are also disproportionately likely to need it, often because they are children who don’t realize they’re pregnant sooner, or are being controlled by adults.
Later abortion care becomes necessary for many pregnant children because adults failed to protect and care for them.
Fear of parental abandonment, abuse, homelessness often prevents kids from finding safe access to abortion earlier in their pregnancy.
Term limits on abortion are unjust for many reasons, but maybe most of all how they sow distrust in other people.
I hope more of us can have the humility to just understand that we are not entitled to know why someone has a later abortion, just asked to not abuse or interfere.
