I asked about 24 weeks because that's the generally accepted age before a fetus is considered "viable", and also the legal limit of elective abortions pretty much everywhere (is there a place that allows it after)?

But survival is not impossible before then (21 weeks is the current earliest survival AFAIK).

So what are we talking about? Cases of legal late term elective abortion with a technically viable fetus, or something else?
I'm talking about taking a fetus that could otherwise survive with medical support and evacuating its brain prior to terminating pregnancy. What is a medical indication for that?
