By this line of thinking, if someone was "pro-choice" (using your lecturer's definition) then if there were a situation where a 9 month pregnant woman was assaulted and lost the baby then it's no biggie, her being pregnant with a full term baby would not make the crime any more heinous.
I am of the opinion that if a fetus may be viable outside the womb then there has to be a good reason to abort that fetus. The "wrong gender" is not a good reason.

I was thinking about that... The essay may have been specifically worded to address the question of murder. It was quite a few years ago and my memory grows dim.
And I agree totally with your last. Viability outside the womb is an important factor of my own opinion on this.

Which is it? Does anyone know?

I think it depends on the gestation Sonja, but don't quote me on that. Under 25 weeks they allow the baby to pass without any medical assistance, beyond that they have to. But again, I'm happy for someone to tell me I'm wrong...

So to answer the question with as scarce as detail as possible, a late term abortion, the foetus will either have its life terminated in utero to make sure it is not born living (for eg, a lethal injection). Or it will be born alive & be left to no longer be alive any more. Or a D & E will be performed on the foetus in utero & it will not survive the process.
I think this is why many people are anti-abortion. Not because try don't want the woman to have choice over her body, but it is devastating to know what happens to these tiny little babies. When I am pregnant, I feel like my uterus should be the safest place that my baby will ever be. I find it devastating that so many babies are denied the comfort an safety of their mothers uterus.

At 25 weeks we weren't asked if we wanted to resuscitate DD, it was just done. I believe at 23 weeks or earlier its up to the parents.
