Partial birth abortion is illegal

but that is not the same as "late term" abortion, which Gary Johnson does approve of. His exact stance is that he supports abortion up until the time of fetus viabiliity (i.e. the fetus can live outside of the womb without medical intervention). A fetus may not reach that point until six or sometimes even seven months. By 12 weeks; however, the baby has fully formed arms, legs, fingers, toes, eyelids and a beating heart. http://www.babycenter.com/fetal-development-images-12-weeks.

Gary Johnson sees no issue with sucking these fully formed babies out of their mothers wombs because they are not quite ready yet to breathe on their own.
