Women do change their minds maybe once a week, late-term abortionist concedes

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.
