Mass. Lawmakers Consider Bill Allowing Abortions Up to Birth

Massachusetts law currently bans abortions after the point of fetal viability, usually considered to be the 24th week of pregnancy. A recently introduced bill would allow doctors to perform abortions up until the baby is born. The Roe Act (S.1209), a previously introduced bill that stalled in the state legislature, is being brought up again by pro-abortion Democrats. The bill would allow abortions past the point of viability if a doctor determines “the abortion is necessary to protect the patient’s life or physical or mental health.” This bill uses the same broad mental health language that was used by the

Ohio State Senate Passes Two More Pro-Life Bills

Even while judicial setbacks in Ohio have discouraged pro-lifers in the state and across the country, the Ohio State Senate has been busy working on even more pro-life legislation. One such bill was passed in October, and the chamber passed an additional pro-life bill on Wednesday. Senate Bill 155, the most recent of the two, requires doctors to inform mothers that it is within the realm of possibility to reverse a chemical abortion if they change their mind and no longer want to abort their child. The bill was passed 22-10. While most voted along party lines, one Republican voted

Wisconsin Governor Vetoes Anti-Infanticide Bill

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers vetoed a bill on Friday that would have mandated proper medical care for infants who are born alive after an abortion attempt. Governor Evers, a Democrat, previously referred to the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Act as “redundant” and not a “productive use of time.” After vetoing the bill, he stated: Everyone should have access to quality, affordable health care, and that includes reproductive health care…Politicians shouldn’t be in the business of interfering with decisions made between patients and their healthcare providers. The anti-infanticide bill was not Evers only veto on Friday. Three other bills that would

More Democrat Governors Refuse to Stand Against Infanticide

Two swing state Democrat governors have chosen to stand for late-term abortion and infanticide in Easter week. If Republicans are smart, they will hammer them on it. First was North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat who was elected in 2016 by a fraction of a point in a race rife with allegations of voter fraud on his behalf. He vetoed a bill to require life-preserving medical treatment for babies born alive after a failed abortion. The issue has become particularly prevalent after Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s comments that a baby born alive in that situation should be simply “kept

Born-Alive Legislation Advances in Texas and North Carolina

In the midst of the debate over legal rights for babies who survive abortion attempts, two states have stepped forward in an effort to secure rights for these children: Texas and North Carolina. In Texas, the State House of Representatives passed House Bill 16, which relates to the enforcement of rights for a “living unborn child after an abortion,” by a vote of 93-1. If enacted, this legislation would mandate medical treatment for the surviving child. Doctors who fail to provide “the appropriate medical treatment” will face a third-degree felony charge coupled with a fine of at least $100,000. While

Democrats Keep Talking About Abortion — And That’s Great for Pro-Lifers

For the first time in a long time, Democrat candidates for president are being seriously challenged — by both sides — about their positions on abortion. Abortion has long been a sacred cow of the Left. There has not been a serious pro-life Democrat to run for president in decades, so support for abortion has been a given for the party’s presidential contenders. The extent of the debate has mostly been relegated to clichés like “safe, legal, and rare” and “between a woman and her doctor,” and Democrats have generally not gone into detail on their positions, unwilling to call

Kamala Harris Is a One-Issue Candidate

This article was originally posted at The Daily Caller. California Sen. Kamala Harris made a number of dubious claims and unrealistic promises in her presidential campaign announcement, but one line in particular stood out. “I’m running to fight for an America … Where reproductive rights are not just protected by the Constitution of the United States but guaranteed in every state,” Harris said. As a dog whistle to the extreme fringes of the pro-abortion lobby, the timing was significant. Just a few days prior to her announcement, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) signed his state’s controversial “40-week bill” legalizing abortion up to the

President Trump Calls for Late-Term Abortion Ban in State of the Union

President Donald Trump, during his State of the Union address on Tuesday evening, criticized New York’s expansive new abortion law and Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s (D) recent comments defending infanticide: There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our Nation saw in recent days.  Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth.  These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love
