Let's brainstorm the reasons why most physicians won't perform late-term abortions . . .
Reading The Washington Post's profile of late-term abortion provider LeRoy Carhart, I was struck by this line:
Most doctors will not perform abortions beyond 22 or 24 weeks for various reasons, including legal concerns, social stigma, inadequate training or inexperience.
Lots of reasons, but one glaring omission. I guess personal moral convictions play no role here?
How big a role it plays I don't know, but I suspect that fear of being murdered isn't completely minor, either.

Agreed that the lack of training or inexperience is trumped by moral and legal concerns.
