Senate vote on 20-week abortion ban coming this month

(Worthy News) - The Senate is likely to vote this month on a bill that would ban abortion after 20 weeks of gestation, sources familiar with the matter told the Washington Examiner.

Anti-abortion groups are pressing for the vote to happen the same day as the March for Life rally on Jan. 19, which happens every year close to the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court decision that made abortion legal nationwide.

The House passed the 20-week abortion ban in October. The bill, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, would penalize medical providers who perform abortions after 20 weeks of gestation with fines or with up to five years in prison, or both. The bill contains limited exceptions, including when a woman's pregnancy puts her life at risk and in cases of rape or incest. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]

  1. It makes no sense to kill the most innocent of people (an unborn child) because it's father raped it's mother.

    It makes no sense to kill the most innocent of humans (an as yet unborn child) because it's parents were "too related" to each other (the definition of incest).

    The variations on the above, the mother being a child, yet sometimes able to get pregnant (girls as young as 9 can and do occasionally conceive, it's happened) is a situation wherein the mother carrying the child to term more often is life-threatening to her. Her pelvis rarely is able to carry a child full term at that early stage of development. The massive amounts of hormone changes too often cause major problems for both mother and child.

    This brings us back to Only in the case of it being life-threatening to child or (esp) the mother.

    Abortion in the USA MOST OF ALL covers up the sins of fornicators, first.

    But secondly, and most importantly, it covers up the crimes (and yes, sins) of RAPISTS!

    Killing the infant does nothing to alleviate that, it covers it up.

    If the mothers had to give birth, if the cause is known as rape, it clears the mother. Adoptions in the USA are still wanted and needed so badly that many US adoptive parents turn to other countries. It would help if we found a decent system to evaluate prospective parents instead of forcing all to comply (convert) to Psychology which is based on the belief that all children, infants included, have sexual feelings.

    It's a corrupt system which can be evidenced by the way too often rouge police officer who shoots unarmed kids walking home from their friends how a little after dark some night. Or playing target practice on black kids with impunity.

    Again, lack of US oversight is being covered up with the deaths of these unborn.

    If mothers had to carry to term, you can bet there would be much greater outcry for the crime of impregnating them against the mothers will!

    We might even see a #metoo Movement that protects mother AND child instead of Rapists.
