House passes late-term abortion ban

House passes late-term abortion ban

Requires a physician who performs an abortion under an exception provided by this Act to comply with: (1) such applicable state laws regarding reporting requirements in cases of rape or incest that are in effect as the state's Attorney General may designate, and (2) any applicable state laws requiring parental involvement in a minor's decision to have an abortion.

The White House's Office of Management and Budget stated that it "strongly supports" the bill and "applauds" the House "for continuing its efforts to secure critical pro-life protections".

Dr. Colleen Malloy, assistant professor, Division of Neonatology at the Northwestern University, in her testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, said: "When we speak of infants at 20 weeks post-fertilization we no longer have to rely on inferences or ultrasound imagery, because such premature patients are kicking, moving and reacting and developing right before our eyes in the neonatal intensive care unit".

Lawmakers approved the measure nearly completely along party-lines, 237-189, with all but three Democrats opposing the bill and all but two Republicans supporting it. "That our baby, despite his tiny misshapen heart and nonexistent aorta, should have a chance 'to live, ' even though that life might have lasted mere minutes".

"While there are divergent views on the practice of abortion", he said, "it is widely recognized from public opinion polls that a strong majority of the public is consistently opposed to late-term abortions". Nor can we trust a Republican attorney general such as John Adams - who has called the legal basis of Roe v. Wade 'really questionable' - to fight such a ban.

A Republican president is waiting in the White House to sign the bill.

She further said that, "Everything in the recent past has affected my mental state and I have been branded as traitor". After Dera chief's conviction on that day, she also accompanied him in a chopper when he was flown to Rohtak jail.

Gareth Bale out injured for Wales' crucial World Cup qualifiers
In order to secure a play-off place, Wales would realistically need at least four points from the final two group games. Despite Bale's absence, Bradshaw could well be kept out of the starting line-up by Liverpool teenager Ben Woodburn .

Largely thanks to cheaper products and building materials, modern structures burn at a much faster rate than their predecessors. Those in attendance can enjoy carnival rides, food, Molly the Fire Safety Dog and an antique fire truck.

Only three Democrats supported the bill, while just two Republicans voted against it.

In a vote held yesterday in American House of Representatives, conservative Republican lawmakers adopted draft legislation that envisions prohibition of pregnancy after 20th week.

When Ohio governor John Kasich approved a 20-week ban but vetoed a 6-week ban past year, critics like James Dobson, president of Family Talk and founder of Focus on the Family, criticized the move as cowardly. Fifteen states, including Georgia, have passed laws that parallel this federal bill, while many others now allow providers to perform abortions on older babies. The House has been proposing and voting on a variation of this ban for years, with similar bills passing in 2013 and 2015.

"Multiple scientific studies indicate that by 20 weeks after fertilization, an unborn child's brain and nervous system have developed sufficiently for that child to feel pain", Hultgren stated. "The whole concept of viability is a creation of abortion law, but we can actually save most of these kids now". "Not only does this legislation protect unborn children, but it also protects women who face substantially higher risk of complications from a late-term abortion". "And opponents of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act fear that, though it is unlikely to pass the Senate, it will ultimately spread unsafe misinformation". "The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is a big step in the right direction toward respecting the dignity of all life, especially those babies who can not even defend themselves". Can average people continue to do nothing just because they feel it will never affect them?

Chuck Donovan, president of the Charlotte Lozier Institute, the research arm of the pro-life Susan B. Anthony List, said Democrats will probably block the bill once it reaches the Senate.
