Legislation that restricts access to later abortion takes decision-making away from a woman and her doctor and puts it in the hands of politicians. These later abortion bans are based on bad science and flawed research, and do not reflect evidence-based medicine. Such laws also jeopardize the lives and health of women in complicated situations and deprive them of the safe, legal medical care that they deserve. Every pregnant woman faces her own unique circumstances, challenges, and potential complications, and must be able to make her own decisions based on her doctor’s advice, her personal values, and what’s right for her and her family.
