Late term abortionist: sometimes patients change their minds

By Sarah Terzo

Late term abortionist Dr. Warren Hern says that some women who are about to undergo abortions change their minds at the last minute. In an interview:

Q. Do your patients ever reconsider?

Hern: Between our two centers, that happens maybe once a week. There’s a patient who changes her mind or becomes truly ambivalent and goes home to reconsider, then might come back a week or two later.
