House passes late-term abortion ban

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

"The fact is that more than 18,000 late-term, pain capable unborn babies were torturously killed without anesthesia in America in just the past year", Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), who introduced the bill, said on the House Floor Monday evening. A pregnant woman who had an abortion after 20 weeks wouldn't be subject to prosecution under the federal statute. We urge Mitch McConnell to undertake every exertion to get it through the Senate and put it on President Donald Trump's desk for signing as quickly as possible.

In a statement made Monday before the bill passed, the White House applauded the house of representatives. "This law is a continuation of the Republican Party's assault on women's reproductive health ... with 3.4 million of our fellow Americans in need in Puerto Rico, families in pain following the horrific shooting in Las Vegas, and hardworking families all over the country looking for an economic boost, I can not comprehend why Republicans at either end of Pennsylvania Avenue remain fixated on attacking women's reproductive rights".

The United States House of Representatives [official site] on Tuesday voted 237-189 [official vote] to approve an abortion bill [official summary] that would criminalize the medical procedure if performed after the 20 week viability mark.

"We have given these little babies less legal protection from unnecessary cruelty than the protection we have given farm animals", Franks said on the floor of the House. But they'd rather spend our tax dollars time pushing a bill with no future, reminding people seeking abortions that they will be stripped of their constitutional rights and are not valued in the United States of America.

Middleton says the measure would supersede laws on the books in Colorado guaranteeing a woman's right to abortion services. Yet they undermine their already dubious argument when they seem unable to decide when 20 weeks is, exactly.

The possibility that a fetus can experience pain from an abortion after 20 weeks should encourage support for this bill, even among those who would otherwise support abortion. "It drives women to unsafe back alleys and to risky self-induced abortions". This bill strips women of their autonomy while showing extreme disregard for their lived experiences and the unique circumstances they may face during a pregnancy. "We've had these conversations, we've had these elections and we actually know where we stand".

Democrats blasted the bill as a "another shameful attack" on women's rights.

Long agreed that the bill is "not something the Republican Party should be wasting its time on".

But Franks said this is an important bill. Rodney Frelinghuysen of N.J.; Rep. Charlie Dent of Pa.) and three Democrats voting yes (Reps. If the new proposal wins a majority in the GOP-controlled House, the bill would need 60 votes in the Senate.

"On the heels of their failure to pass an ACA repeal bill that would have left millions of women without coverage, H.R. 36 takes another wrong turn", said Dr. Anne Davis, Consulting Medical Director for Physicians for Reproductive Health, in a statement emailed to reporters. "But this bill did receive ... support in 2015 from Democratic senators". "We have an obligation to speak and defend for those who can't speak for themselves".
