Dr. Grossman Explains Abortion Later in Pregnancy
Dr. Daniel Grossman of University of California, San Francisco took to twitter to lay down some cold hard facts about abortion later in pregnancy, or “third trimester abortions”. His tweet thread came in response to the 20 week abortion ban which failed to pass the Senate in January. Dr. Grossman dispelled some of the misinformation around the “fetal pain” rhetoric that surrounded the proposed 20 week ban. In one of the tweets, he explained that “research has shown a fetus does not yet have the capacity to experience pain until at least the third trimester, and unlikely until birth.” He also sourced evidence-based medical information to back up his claims, in stark contrast to the proponents of the ban.
