In an interview on Fox News Sunday, Obama said, "On an issue like partial-birth abortion, I strongly believe that the state can properly restrict late-term abortions. I have said so repeatedly. All I’ve said is we should have a provision to protect the health of the mother, and many of the bills that came before me didn’t have that."

How many late term abortions are actually provided?

Not many late term abortions are actually provided because they are strictly limited by the Roe vs Wade Supreme Court decision via state law. Firstly about 89% of abortions occur before 12 weeks so even according to the most conservative estimates only 11% of abortions would be considered late term. However if we use the viability standard of 22- 27 weeks, less than 1.1% of abortions would occur after this point.

1.1%? Sounds like the health of the mother was threatened or the fetus had severe defects.

The GOP platform provides NO EXCEPTIONS.

There are many health related reasons cited by this JAMA article as to why a woman would need a late term abortion:

http://www.amplifyyourvoice.org/u/vanessaaish...

Late abortions are fundamentally important to women's reproductive health.1 Antenatal fetal diagnosis, such as maternal {alpha}-fetoprotein screening and amniocentesis, is predicated on the availability of induced abortion. Although techniques such as chorionic villus sampling and early amniocentesis have allowed earlier diagnosis, by the time results of midtrimester amniocentesis or ultrasound are available, a woman may be beyond 20 weeks' gestation.

Illnesses of women and fetal anomalies lead to requests for late abortions. Late abortion can be lifesaving for women with medical disorders aggravated by pregnancy. Conditions such as Eisenmenger syndrome carry a high risk of maternal morbidity and mortality in pregnancy, the latter ranging from 20% to 30%.18 In recent years, I have performed late abortions for a Kampuchean refugee with craniopagus conjoined twins and a 25-year-old woman with a 9 x 15-cm thoracic aortic aneurysm from newly diagnosed Marfan syndrome. Cancer sometimes makes late abortion necessary. For example, either radical hysterectomy or radiation therapy for cervical cancer before fetal viability involves abortion.

Incest and rape are other compelling indications. Pregnancies resulting from incest among young teenagers or among women with mental handicaps may escape detection until the pregnancy is advanced. Approximately 32000 pregnancies result from rape each year in the United States; about half of rape victims receive no medical attention, and about one third do not discover the pregnancy until the second trimester.

Pros & Cons of Partial Birth Abortion
http://usliberals.about.com/od/healthcare/i/P...
Partial-birth abortion is a non-medical term used to describe a type of an abortion procedure which is performed in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy, with the goal of delivering a fetus that is not alive.
Hotly Contested Right-to-Life Issue
Partial-birth abortion is also one of the most hotly contested right-to-life political issues in America.
Most legal battles over banning this late-term pregnancy-termination procedure relate to the inclusion of exemptions for certain circumstances, most notably to save the life or health of the woman.
Repeat: most notably to save the life or health of the woman.
I agree!
Obama/Biden 2012!
oDumbo does not care anything about women's health. He just wants to murder as many children as possible. If he really cared about women, planned murderhood would be shut down.

I am tired of the democRATic war on women. It is time for oDumbo and clan to be removed from office.

How is killing a women important for her health? Abortion killes a child. I am sure she would not make a choice to be murdered.

Makes more sense to have the right to murder your babies after they're old enough to prove what disgusting sociopaths they are. That would include the majority of the brats inn Jtown. Maybe that's what their parents are doing when they let them play in traffic and race ATVs in the streets and play in storm ditches, kill them off that is. It's working but just not as fast as abortions.

Obama voted against three bills stating that anyone “born alive at any stage of development” is considered a “person” under Illinois state law including those born as a result of “abortion.” He did this in the face of sworn testimony from Illinois nurses who witnessed aborted newborns living and being neglected for up to eight hours after birth. These are the straightforward and unadorned facts of the matter.

I find it interesting that Obama wants to make a it a womans right to choose whether or not to abort an unborn baby, however, he doesn't think we can choose whether or not to have sugary drinks? Seriously? Don't you think Obama should worry about things the government should be controlling instead of micromanaging peoples day to day life. Get him out of there!
