    This Gynecologist's Twitter Thread Explaining The Need For Late-Term Abortions Is Going Viral

    "I've done abortions after 24 weeks. I was never approached by any woman to do a non medically indicated abortion."

    New York state recently passed a law protecting women’s reproductive rights.

    Today I signed the #ReproductiveHealthAct — codifying Roe v. Wade into state law and protecting women's reproductive rights no matter what the federal government does. This is a victory for all New Yorkers.

    New York’s Reproductive Health Act was signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo last Tuesday and it allows abortions to be performed after 24 weeks gestation if the fetus isn’t viable or if the woman’s health is in danger.

    Gynecologist Jennifer Gunter — who is board-certified in both Canada and the United States – took to Twitter to explain her professional experience with late-term abortions.

    She shared the realities she's seen firsthand as a gynecologist.

    And continued with examples of specific situations in which abortions were necessary in her practice.

    Dr. Gunter ended the thread by noting that these are just some of the examples she has witnessed in her career.

    BuzzFeed reached out to Dr. Gunter who declined to comment.
