Why I perform abortions: A Christian obstetrician explains his choice

Ironically, it’s the lack of access to abortion care that often pushes women to have abortions later in pregnancy. [...]

Abortion should be considered a part of reproductive health care and a basic human right, but it’s not. It’s hard to access. About 85 percent of women live in a county where there’s no abortion provider. The distribution is even more dire in rural areas, where 90 percent of women have no provider. Many women have to travel long distances just to get to a provider.
That could easily help you understand why laws that impose waiting limits and notifications further distort the reality of women’s access to abortion care.
