OB-GYN Sets Trump Straight on 9th Month Abortions

Hint: Trump is wrong.

In the final presidential debate, Trump said that doctors routinely perform 9th month abortions, that they “rip the baby out of the womb in the ninth month, on the final day.”

Jennifer Gunter disputes Donald Trump’s assertion with actual facts:

“People seem to forget when they talk about these theoretical post-24 week abortions for personal reasons that a pregnant person would need $15,000 or more in cash. So, considering the cost of abortions, the fact that fewer than 0.3 percent occur at or after 21 weeks for non-genetic reasons, that most abortions will be before 24 weeks, and the expense of the procedure, it is simply ludicrous to insinuate that this happens regularly — never mind at all. And a “nine-month abortion” of an otherwise healthy fetus? That is just untrue.”
