    up to term?

    "In China, official pressure is exerted on a woman who already has a child to have a subsequent fetus aborted (abortions can occur up to term)."

    What does "up to term" mean?

    It means up to the baby's delivery date.

    So...Is it saying that they'll have the baby aborted even when it is 7 months old (which may be dangerous for the mother)?
