When faced with a question about third-trimester abortion at a campaign event in Cleveland, Ohio Monday, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) said he would fight for a woman’s right to choose.

An attendee asked O’Rourke whether he supported third-trimester abortions, pointing out that “there’s really not a medical necessity for abortions” at that point because “typically, third-trimester abortions take up to three days to have.”

“That should be a decision that the woman makes. I trust her,” O’Rourke said, to which the audience cheered.
