House Passes Ban On Abortion After 20 Weeks Of Pregnancy

The bill to ban abortion at 20 weeks is based on fake science

The bill to ban abortion at 20 weeks is based on fake science

The House passed the ban on late-term abortions shortly after 6 p.m.by a vote of 237-189, mostly along party lines. Somehow, on both these issues, Republicans manage to be on the wrong side of both evidence and public opinion, and they still haven't paid a price for it - but too many innocent Americans have. "The bill, if enacted into law, would help to facilitate the culture of life to which our Nation aspires". I may not have known at the time that it was him thrashing around inside of me that I felt, but I will never forget the day I found out exactly what took place in a saline abortion and the cruelty I subjected my son to because of pressure from others.

It faces an uphill battle in the Senate, where Republicans don't have the votes to override a filibuster from Democrats, who blocked similar versions of the legislation in 2013 and 2015.

That same fate awaits it this year. "We now ask the Senate to also vote on this legislation so that President Trump can fulfill his promise of signing this bill into law". No scientific consensus on the topic has yet been reached, and some researchers have suggested that 20-week-old fetuses have not yet developed the neurological wiring that is necessary to feel pain. Mothers can feel their babies kicking at this age.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) called on his colleagues not to turn their backs on unborn children.

Sulphuric acid is also used to manufacture some types of homemade explosives, she added. We will do our best to understand it.

Democrats called such assertions junk science.

"Part of the reason why they die is because they don't get the right care at the right time", Davis said. "If you can't interpret it, it can't hurt". Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) and Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.), along with Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), said in a statement the ban "endangers women, interferes with their private health care decisions, and marginalizes sexual assault victims while also being blatantly unconstitutional".

Reverberations from Sunday's mass shooting in Las Vegas spilled into the debate, with some Democrats saying that barring automatic weapons was a better way to save lives. In a pregnancy resulting from a rape, a woman would be allowed to have an abortion if she has received counseling or medical treatment and has waited 48 hours. In an interview, the group's chief executive officer, Hal Lawrence, said "the overwhelming amount of evidence" shows fetuses younger than that have reflex activity but lack the neurological development to sense pain. Hopefully, our humanity will come through as this act is brought to a vote and the innate good that abides in each of us will win out, making late-term abortions a thing of the past.

The act would make it a crime to perform an abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Abortion is an ugly business, and it gets uglier the later in the pregnancy it occurs.

The Supreme Court legalized abortion in 1973 but opened the door to some state restrictions.

The group also noted that almost all abortions are performed before 21 weeks.

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".
