After a dramatic increase in the number of late-term abortions for "psychological" reasons, Australia's government has planned to implement a law requiring a "cooling off period" before the abortion.
In an article in The Age that discusses the debate over late-term abortions, Australian abortionist David Grundmann describes why he performs late-term abortions,
"It's not because we want to do abortions late. We do them late because patients find themselves in that situation."
Not very much of a defense is it? Imagine a doctor who killed toddlers saying, "It's not because we want to do post-birth abortions. We do them post-birth because patients find themselves in that situation."
