3. wouldn't the larger problem be the late term abortion ban
passed under Bush? Serious question. If the right-to-lifers have it their way your only choices would be to carry to term or have an illegal abortion - right?

Also - do you know if you can even terminate a pregnancy at 6 months if the life of the mother isn't in jeopardy?

I'm asking b/c I'm honestly not sure. I'm thinking that most docs refuse b/c of legal concerns and that is why Dr. Tiller was so important to women.
