Ripped from the womb? Late-term abortion explained

Women protested the nominee outside Trump Tower in New York City last week

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton speaks to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump during the third presidential debate at UNLV in Las Vegas, Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016.

"If you go with what Hillary is saying, in the ninth month, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother, just prior to the birth of the baby", he said. "It was so bad that his brain had developed outside his head, and his spine was open clear to the lumbar level", she wrote and went on say how "no medical miracle that could save" the second child.

It will be interesting to see how much the pro-life movement influences the election and if an antiabortion stance is enough to provoke true conservatives to vote Trump. "It's becoming more standard politically and I think that's a good thing", he said.

According to Buzzfeed, "Trump stressed that he is "pro-life" and would nominate like-minded justices for the Supreme Court to make sure the issue of abortion is decided at the state level".

Clinton called Trump's argument against partial-birth abortion in particular "scare rhetoric", adding, "This is one of the worst possible choices that any woman and her family has to make".

Responding to the same question, Clinton reaffirmed that she supports Roe v. Wade, "which guarantees a constitutional right to a woman to make the most intimate, most hard in many cases decisions about her health care that one can imagine".

Under Roe v. Wade, women have the right to terminate a pregnancy up until the point when a fetus becomes viable outside the womb, which generally occurs between 24 and 28 weeks of pregnancy. In fact, it is these harmful and needless restrictions that actually force women to get abortions later in pregnancy. Of all the reasons it benefits the nation to have more women in politics, this may be the biggest - the shift of women's lives from the realm of hypotheses into the real world."Vogue.com's Michelle Ruiz echoed her sentiments: "Male politicians regularly debate, and legislate, on the topic of what women should and should not be able to do with their own bodies; but for the first time in history, a woman was the one doing the talking - and it made all the difference."Trump's response to Clinton's defence of late-term abortion elicited a passionate reaction on social media".

"No woman should have to have the state have a say in the most painful decision she will ever make".

Until recently, Trump was "pro-choice in every respect", including partial-birth abortion.

In fact, the vast majority of US abortions occur early in pregnancy.

"Pro-lifers believe there are two victims in an abortion: the unborn child and the woman who felt that that was her best option".

If elected, Trump said, he will improve trade relations with Mexico, but he didn't explain why he didn't discuss the wall during his visit with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto. Wallace asked why this was the case.

"Being nonpartisan doesn't mean that what you're saying doesn't lead to a conclusion", he said.
