Abortion should be legal without restriction in the first trimester, legal in certain circumstances in the second trimester, and legal only in the third trimester to save the life of the mother.
This was the law of the land until the conservative Supreme Court overturned it. Now, it is current Republican legislators pushing for a national abortion ban: https://apnews.com/article/2022-mid...court-health-7ea4f8fa597c97042503d856a082ef94
And current Republican legislators who do not support third trimester abortion to save the life of the mother or in case of rape and incest:
A growing number oppose abortion even in cases of rape and incest, a departure for the GOP.www.axios.com
So again, Democrats are in the "middle" position, Republicans on the fringe.
Wait, which Democrats have said abortion should have some restrictions after the first trimester, and illegal in the third trimester?
Will absolutely not give you this one.
