Timing of abortion: Theoretically at any time, but it is easiest to obtain and to do before 12 weeks gestation. After 24 weeks (the point of fetal viability) it may be regulated or prohibitted.

Varied : Some women have an abortion because they are pregnant at the wrong time in their lives. Other very desired pregnancies are terminated when the fetus is diagnosed with a severe malformation. I have also had mothers terminate because their health was in jeopardy. Life is not always straight forward.
