Late-Term Abortion Ban Would Trump Coloradans' Access

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

Republicans have pushed a bill through the house outlawing most late-term abortions.

The bill, which was introduced on Tuesday by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, would make it a crime to perform or attempt to perform an abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

"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", she added.

Congressman Jim Banks (IN-03) spoke on the House floor about his support for H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

"Congress has authority to extend protection to pain-capable unborn children under the Supreme Court's Commerce Clause precedents and under the Constitution's grants of powers to Congress under the Equal Protection, Due Process, and Enforcement Clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment".

Pro-Life groups like the Family Research Council celebrated the decision, saying that the bill "conforms law to modern science".


The United States is now one out of only 7 countries that allow elective abortions after 20 weeks according to the statement. Congressman Randy Hutlgren (R-Illinois), however, told members it is scientists who say babies can - and they aren't false scientists. "America's children deserve the stronger protections that H.R. 36 would advance". That was shown again today when the U.S. House voted for the third time on a 20-week national abortion ban with few exceptions and penalties for providers. It will establish a principle that a woman's access to abortion can be limited by federal law. The bill would not bring the United States into line with Sweden (18 weeks) or Germany (12 weeks and mandatory Schwangerschaftskonfliktberatung, or abortion counseling) but it would represent a welcome step in the right direction.

Similar legislation is already enacted in several states. "Being denied abortion sets women back financially while abortion allows them to continue on a path toward economic stability". "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". "We've had these conversations, we've had these elections and we actually know where we stand". Amy Friedrich-Karnik, senior federal policy adviser at the Center for Reproductive Rights, called the bill a "direct attack on women's autonomy". This is why it's so important that we elect Ralph Northam, Justin Fairfax, Mark Herring, and all our Democrats running for the House of Delegates on November 7th.

The big problem here, doctors say, is that the bill is based entirely on bad science.

Mr. Speaker, this child is a gift from God, a gift that we have far too often abandoned in this country. The bill will face some tough odds in the Senate as it needs 60 votes for passage and Republicans hold only 52 seats. Rodney Frelinghuysen of N.J.; Rep. Charlie Dent of Pa.) and three Democrats voting yes (Reps.

In reasonable medical judgment, the abortion is necessary to save the life of a pregnant woman whose life is endangered by a physical disorder, physical illness, or physical injury, including a life-endangering physical condition caused by or arising from the pregnancy itself, but not including psychological or emotional conditions.
