House Backs Ban on Abortions After 20 Weeks

House Backs Ban on Abortions After 20 Weeks

WASHINGTON-Today the House passed H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) co-sponsored.

Rep. Mia B. Love, Utah Republican, said "each human life should be protected under the rule of law". A bill that would ban abortion at 20 weeks passed the House of Representatives in 2013, but failed to gain the support needed to pass the Senate.

"We hold that every child, from conception onward, deserves love and the protection of the law".

The bill will require only a simple majority in the House to pass.

But it will likely stumble in the Senate, where it needs at least 60 votes. James Lankford (R-OK), who was also present, for his continued support of the measure. For unborn children, says Dr. Paul Ranalli, a neurologist at the University of Toronto, 20 weeks is a "uniquely vulnerable time, since the pain system is fully established, yet the higher level pain-modifying system has barely begun to develop".

House passes bill to ban abortions after...

Similar legislation is already enacted in several states. "And there isn't much argument about how well developed the nervous system is at 20 weeks". He also pledged to help defund Planned Parenthood, prioritize nominating pro-life justices to the Supreme Court, and ensuring that taxpayer money would never fund abortion services.

Instead, these "pro-life" lawmakers are voting to ban abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy nationwide. Defines "appropriate relief" in a civil action to include: (1) objectively verifiable money damages for all injuries, psychological and physical, occasioned by the violation; (2) statutory damages equal to three times the cost of the abortion; and (3) punitive damages.




When Ohio governor John Kasich approved a 20-week ban but vetoed a 6-week ban a year ago, critics like James Dobson, president of Family Talk and founder of Focus on the Family, criticized the move as cowardly. The bill threatens doctors with fines and a harsh penalty of up to five years in prison and imposes additional hurdles that interfere with the patient-provider relationship and further delay care. But health care professionals are rebutting the claim with science. If an abortion is performed after that date, it's usually due to "very complex circumstances", such as fetal anomalies and risks to the pregnant woman's health.

Permits a physician to terminate a pregnancy under such an exception only in the manner that provides the best opportunity for the unborn child to survive.

The results showed that more than half of the women affected were black while one-fourth were white. The second-highest rate is less than half of that - 9.2 per every 100,000 women in the United Kingdom.

Coerced into an abortion by my dad, I was brought to a hospital, ironically on the maternity floor, for a saline abortion. Well now the Republican-House with President Trump's support has approved a bill that would ban all abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

"Being late in discovering pregnancy is the leading cause of seeking a later abortion". "I'm happy to co-sponsor his bill, which will protect babies who can feel pain in the womb".

The ban comes in the context of a decline in the number of abortions in America. Yet it was, right there on the maternity ward where the woman next door to me was celebrating the birth of her child. "It drives women to unsafe back alleys and to risky self-induced abortion".

The House is expected to vote on HR 36 at 5 p.m. Tuesday.
