I believe it's federal law - have to provide free or subsidized lunch for those who qualify. Where I live, having served or not served lunch yet determines whether a surprise early dismissal day counts as having taken place at all (ie if the school loses power before lunch is served, that day won't count towards the required 180 days of school.)

That really is old. In 1988 the did not have the same prenatal diagnostic opportunities they do now.

Here is another one from a pro-choice group. http://rhrealitycheck.org/article/2010/07/30/what-everyone-needs-know-about-later-abortions/ Women have second trimester abortions because they need to, not because they want to. Why? Because their insurance doesn’t cover abortion, because they needed time to raise money for the cost of an abortion, because they needed to arrange travel/childcare/time off of work in order to spend a full day at the clinic, because they needed time to make the decision with confidence, because they needed to make time to travel out of state to access an abortion provider.
