Abortion became a topic in the debates between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump for the first time Wednesday night when moderator Chris Wallace focused on access to “late-term” procedures.
“Well, I think it’s terrible,” Trump said. “If you go with what Hillary is saying, in the ninth month, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby.
“And, honestly, nobody has business doing what I just said, doing that, as late as one or two or three or four days prior to birth,” he said. “Nobody has that."
Abortion is one of the most polarizing social issues in America. A May 2016 Gallop poll showed that 29 percent of respondents believed it should be legal under any circumstances, 50 percent only under certain circumstances, and 19 percent illegal in all circumstances. Only 2 percent of those surveyed had no opinion.
