Do abortion laws in the USA compare to Communist China?

Partial-Birth Abortions in the USA
Dear Editor:
Are the abortion laws/policies of the USA regarding late-term abortions also known as partial-birth abortions, comparative to Communist China?
The 2008 Democratic Party platform on abortion reads this way:
The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade, and a woman’s right to choose a safe and legal abortion, regardless of ability to pay and oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.
In 2003, President Obama, then an Illinois State Senator, defended late-term abortions and opposed the Born-Alive Infants Protection Act.
The practice of partial-birth abortions is known as “infanticide” or murder of an infant. Many of these abortions are performed from 20 to 24 weeks into the pregnancy because the parents want to choose the sex of the child.
The President of Planned Parenthood is schedules to speak at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC. Planned Parenthood assists women on how to plan their families and other preventative health care as well as abortions on demand. This organization receives millions of dollars in tax-payer money every year. Last year Planned Parenthood performed 325,000 abortions which make up 51 percent of their clinic income. (Dallas Morning News- Cecil Richards, 8-23-12)
The partial-birth abortion procedure is horrifying and over two-thirds of Americans believe it should be illegal.
I ask you again, are the abortion laws/policies of the USA comparative to Communist China?
