RFK Jr. walks back full-term abortion position

In an interview with Sage Steele last week, independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. backed full-term abortion.  In a more recent X post, he conceded to some restrictions on abortion once a fetus reaches viability, which occurs around 23 to 24 weeks of pregnancy. He had told Steele that late-term abortions were always medically necessary, but now says, “I’ve learned that my assumption was wrong.”
