Ban on Abortion After 20 Weeks Passes House


"Ending the unsafe and violent practice of late-term abortions should not be controversial", Johnson said in a statement.

"Being late in discovering pregnancy is the leading cause of seeking a later abortion".

"Let's ensure all 50 states have protections for vulnerable pain-capable children".

"The bottom line is this: 20 weeks is halfway through a pregnancy". The baby's sex, which has been determined since fertilization, is identifiable.

When do fetuses feel pain?

And then, they will try to kill abortion with death by a thousand cuts...incremental reductions in the 20-week time limit which they hope to pass with future legislation. Indeed, ultrasound imagery shows children in the womb flinching from pain during fetal medical procedures.

"The unborn children of America deserve a chance at life", Brownback said.

"The embryological evidence of development of nervous system is pretty well-defined", Dr. Kathi Aultman, a board certified OB/GYN and former abortionist, told LifeSiteNews. However, more than a dozen states now ban them after 20 weeks.

Eighteen weeks gestation is 16 weeks post-fertilization.

Democrats rejected that. The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has said fetuses can not experience pain before at least 24 weeks of development.

Both medical experts and pro-life advocates have debated the fetal pain argument at the center of the policy. "The horrific pain for these unborn children being ripped apart limb by limb must be stopped". "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".

Tesla Falls Behind on Model 3 Production in Q3
On Monday, Tesla also mentioned that quite a few systems in its vehicle plants took longer to activate than it was expected. The remaining 220 were Tesla's recently launched Model 3 . "We expect Model 3 to have a breakout year in 2019".

A ban on abortions after 20 weeks of gestation was passed by the U.S. House of Representatives.

The bill, named the "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act", was introduced by Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ), and will be voted on by the House on October 3.

The measure, sponsored by Republican Representative Trent Franks, was approved by 237 votes to 189, according to Vox. "I am a strong supporter of pro-life priorities and will always vote to protect the unborn".

"Later term abortion is a political term, not a medical one". But it has gotten to the point when the particulars of this or that abortion legislation hardly matter except on the margins. Minors who have become pregnant after rape or incest are likewise required to report the crime to law enforcement or child protective services before receiving an abortion.

The Senate still must schedule consideration of the bill, but that seemed unlikely. When an abortion on a viable "excepted" baby takes place, a second doctor who is trained in neonatal resuscitation must be present.

For voters who consider abortion rights non-negotiable, the 2018 Senate elections, and the polarization of the two parties on this issue, should be kept in mind constantly for the immediate future.

"Basic compassion for human life demands that this legislation be enacted all over the country", stated National Right to Life Director of State Legislation Mary Spaulding Balch, J.D., in 2016, when SC signed a similar bill into law.

But critics say the bill's claim that fetuses feel pain is based on bad science, and call the measure an unconstitutional attempt, repeatedly stricken down by courts, to restrict abortion rights. In Senate, Republicans need to get 60 votes, but y only have 52 seats.

"The bill, if enacted into law, would help to facilitate the culture of life to which our Nation aspires", the White House also said in a statement.

Authorizes: (1) a woman upon whom an abortion has been performed or attempted in violation of this Act to obtain appropriate relief in a civil action against any person who committed the violation, and (2) a parent of a minor upon whom an abortion has been performed or attempted under an exception and that was performed in violation of this Act to obtain such relief unless the pregnancy resulted from the plaintiff's criminal conduct.
