While Roe declares that the state may proscribe late term abortions in the interest of protecting fetal life after viability, it adds the caveat "except when it is necessary to preserve the life or health of the mother," which Doe explains is to include not only physical health but mental health, to be understood to include factors such as age, familial status, emotional state, etc.

38. Schaff, et al, cited in note 33, p. 4. The precise time of abortion is hard to specify; while Schaff measured decrease in ßhCG levels as an indicator of abortion, Hausknecht (cited in note 33) looked for the "expulsion of the products of conception" or the "passage of tissue" (P. 538). Using this criteria, Hausknecht still apparently had some who took at least 18 days to abort (methotrexate on day 1, misoprostol day 7, repeat misoprostol, day 14, abortion 4 days later, pp. 538-539). Those still pregnant at that point underwent a surgical abortion.

According to an October 22,1993 article titled "Existing Drugs Induced Abortions But some warn about toxicity," appearing on p. 7 of Newsday (New York), the medical director of Planned Parenthood of New York, Dr. Hakim Elahi indicated the side effects were so unpredictable he would not use it as an abortion drug in any dose. In a letter to the editors of the New York Times (April 8, 1996, at p. A14), abortionist Don Sloan warned that methotrexate can produce severe anemias, ulcers, and bone marrow depressions that can be fatal,even at the doses used for abortion and said "many of us in the ‘abortion trade,’ as I am, are recoiling at the stark irresponsibility of those who are parading this medication in such cavalier fashion."
