Abortion is “technically problematic” after 24 weeks

From one medical textbook:

24 weeks – still legal to aborted many US states and throughout Canada

24 weeks – still legal to abort in many US states and throughout Canada

“The size of the conceptus at this stage in pregnancy [Post 24 weeks gestation] makes D&E technically problematic… Delivery of a fetus after 24 weeks gestation will frequently result in an infant capable of survival…”

Joe Leigh Simpson, M.D. and Sherman Elias, M.D. Essentials of Prenatal Diagnosis (Churchill Livingstone, 1993) 327

In fact, children have survived being born at as early as 21 weeks.
