The decision is between doctor and patient. This fantasy anti-choicers have that pregnant women are aborting late-term pregnancies for fun or convenience is just that: A fantasy, and a sick one at that. The cost for later term abortion can be upwards of $10-$15 thousand so only a rich woman could afford that, and why would she wait that long? Also, no doctor in this country is going to abort a perfectly healthy viable pregnancy. None. Zip. Zero. Nada.

So no, there should be NO restrictions on abortion. Like every other medical procedure, it should be confidential between doctor and patient. Period. End of story.
