Pregnancy is not a Disease

Those who fight for late-term abortion say it’s needed to save the lives of women. But thousands of medical professionals say late-term abortion is never needed to save a mother. The American College of Pediatricians and the American Association of Pro-Life OB/GYNs say these  situations are medical emergencies and require immediate delivery. Late-term abortion typically takes days to complete, and proper medical care requires labor induction or emergency C-section in a hospital where both mother and child receive the best care possible. They say there’s no medical reason to kill the baby and further stated, “Pregnancy is not a disease, and deliberately killing the unborn child by abortion is not healthcare.” I agree with the experts.
