Someone needs to educate Trump. That’s not how abortion works, that’s not how any of this works. The missing information that Trump needed is the definition of late-term abortion, which describes a termination of pregnancy in the second trimester.
This is usually done between 14 to 20 weeks — rarely around 24 weeks. Later-term abortions only make up 8 percent of abortions worldwide. In fact, most abortions are done at less than 8 weeks’ gestation and each state has specific laws as to how late an abortion can occur, most citing 18-20 weeks.
For Trump to not know the basics of something he is so strongly against and to confidently speak with such error is frightening. The most important thing learned in medical school about being a great doctor is to know what you don’t know and be free to ask questions. Someone should teach Trump this strategy.
