Internet destroys Fox News host alleging women must let ill fetuses die or they’re having ‘recreational abortions’

During a report on Fox News, host Katie Pavlich attacked women who don’t let their fetuses die in utero when they’re ill. For women who choose to have an abortion instead of risking their own health to wait for a non-viable fetus to die, Pavlich called it a “recreational abortion.”
“So this New York abortion law which allows abortion up til the day before birth is, essentially, a recreational abortion bill,” Pavlich opined.
Dr. Omar Hamada agreed, saying women should wait for their fetus to die instead of having third-trimester abortions. 
The internet unleashed on both the host and the doctor, who tried to clarify that he was an actual OB/GYN.
I want to clear something up so that there is absolutely no doubt.

I’m a Board Certified OB/GYN who has delivered over 2,500 babies.

There’s not a single fetal or maternal condition that requires third trimester abortion. Not one. Delivery, yes. Abortion, no.
I could care less if you delivered over 8,000 babies. You use the term "recreational abortion"? Are you going to go on to start calling "recreational rape"??

Typically even anti-choice activists agree forcing women to have dead fetuses isn’t generally part of the abortion debate.

@KatiePavlich are you the dumbest person on Fox? It’s a HUGE field of contenders, but you, you absolute moron, calling late term abortion “recreational abortion”, you take the cake. So dumb, so ignorant. Golly gee, I hope you’re never faced with this decision. Shame on you.
When GOP politicians force their mistresses to get an abortion, it's not considered *recreational*, but a *work expense*
But gleeful abortion until birth is fine, because morals or something.
This law is meant to prevent women from having to deliver a dying or dead baby. It’s not ‘recreational!’
The word “recreational” has been chosen carefully to debase the people and procedures they are talking about. That’s what makes it a lie. Who in Gods name has a recreational abortion? I would be appalled and lobbying against them! THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH PRO CHOICE.
