Native speaker’s answer

Rebecca

She says that calling this type of abortion "eugenic abortion" is manipulation here, because according to the speaker, it was never eugenic abortions that women had, where they aborted babies if they didn't have desirable traits or had a genetic disability, but instead they aborted babies who would only have a few days to live or would be born stillborn or dead.
