Late termination of pregnancy,also known as postviability abortion
Letâ€™s read a bit more, shall we ?
Late termination of pregnancy is more controversial than abortion in general because it results in the death of a fetus that is more developed and sometimes able to survive independently.
Late-term abortions are rare with about 1.3% of abortions taking place after the 21st week of pregnancy, and less than 1% occuring after 24 weeks. Late-term abortions usually take place when the mother's health is at serious risk or when fatal abnormalities have been detected.

Tell that to a rape victim.
And, of course, this is why contraception is one of the best ways to fight abortion. Perhaps you should ask yourself why so many â€œpro-lifeâ€ people are against that. (Maybe it will even help if I point out that the Catholic Church has a lot to do with that).
