Despite Crawford's reporting, the rest of the national press never held Obama's feet to the fire on this issue. The fact is, almost 38 years to the day after the Supreme Court handed down the Roe and Doe decisions, abortion is legal in all 50 states, through all 9 months of pregnancy, for effectively any reason, so long as you can find a doctor willing to do it. Simply put, the only way states will have the right to ban abortions--late-term or earlier--is if a fifth constitutionalist joins Scalia, Thomas, Roberts, and Alito on the Court.
