White House “Strongly Supports” Bill Banning Abortion After 20 Weeks

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

But Franks said this is an important bill. The measure, which has 170 co-sponsors, is also known as H.R. 36.

"Neurologically, the science is pretty incontrovertible", Sara Imershein, an OB-GYN in Washington, D.C., said by phone. "Instead of pain-instead of pain-we should fill them with love". There are nerves, but the connections are incomplete and can't register pain.

".I really don't have any data to suggest that that could be true, or the other way", he testified to Congress in 2005 when asked if the pain possibilities translate to unborn fetuses. Scientists have known this since a robust 2005 study, and follow-up research backs it up.

Requires the form to be: (1) signed in person by the woman seeking the abortion, the physician performing the abortion, and a witness; and (2) retained in the patient's medical file for six years from the later of the date of its creation or the date when it last was in effect. Representative Tim Murphy of Pennsylvania, despite today's allegations (which he has yet to deny) that he encouraged an extramarital lover to have an abortion, voted for the ban. On its face, it doesn't make any sense.

"These unborn babies are feeling pain". The Senate has no plans to consider it, and it would probably be subject to a Democratic filibuster if Republicans could manage to get a majority to vote for it, also doubtful.

The measure, if enacted into law, would allow the procedure after 20 weeks in cases of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother and would not penalize women.

Currently, 20-week abortion bans exist in a number of states across the country, including in Texas, Kansas, North Carolina, and Oklahoma. Other women have found themselves forced to cross state lines when they're already dealing with the heartbreak of losing a wanted pregnancy. The second-highest rate is less than half of that - 9.2 per every 100,000 women in the United Kingdom. We have gone from making abortion "rare and legal" to enshrining it for all nine months at the expense of everything, including the long-term impact on the mothers we profess to care about.

"We will never know these Micahs", he said.

Several medical experts said the bill isn't about fetal pain at all. It will establish a principle that a woman's access to abortion can be limited by federal law. In a letter dated September 2016 that was sent to anti-abortion leaders inviting individuals to join the campaign's "Pro-Life Coalition", Trump said he was committed to "signing into law the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would end painful late-term abortions nationwide", as one of four points.

NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue called the legislation "an attack on women's freedom".

If so, the strategy certainly isn't new. This legislation conforms federal abortion law to modern science.

Planned Parenthood Action Fund said on its website "20-week bans are unconstitutional" and "a clear attempt to erode Roe v. Wade".

"Time and again, the Supreme Court has affirmed a woman's constitutional right to abortion prior to viability".

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.
