The American Board of Obsetrics and Gynecology wants a sub-specialty certification known as "Complex Family Planning" and it's asking the American Board of Medical Specialties to approve it.
A late-term abortion would occur in the second and even third trimesters but Dr. Donna Harrison of the American Association of Pro-life Obstetricians and Gynecologists says by that age a baby can survive outside the womb.
"But, see, the point of an abortion at that gestational age," says Harrison, "is to make sure that the baby is dead. So it's to produce a dead baby. It's not to save a mother's life."
If that were the case, Harrison says the doctor would perform a C-section so the mother and child would have a chance at life.
