White House hopeful Beto O’Rourke seemingly endorsed the practice of third-trimester abortions at a campaign event in Ohio on Monday, less than a month after Senate Democrats blocked a bill that would have required doctors to provide medical care to newborns amid a swirling infanticide controversy in Virginia.
The third trimester extends from the 28th week of pregnancy up until birth, and polls consistently show that nearly 80 percent of Americans oppose such late abortions.
“Are you for third-trimester abortions?” an attendee of the campaign event in Cleveland asked O’Rourke, before describing the medical alternatives to such a procedure and disputing the medical necessity of late-term abortions. “Are you going to protect the lives of third-trimester babies? … Are you for or against third-trimester abortions?”
