Kansas' GOP delegation in House backs 'pain-capable' abortion bill

05 October, 2017, 00:08 | Author: Garry Little
  • The bill to ban abortion at 20 weeks is based on fake science

"Also, a term pregnancy is 40 weeks so a 20 week abortion isn't late term", said Dr. Sometimes, the abortionist injects the drug digoxin into them, which causes fatal cardiac arrest. "I'm happy to co-sponsor his bill, which will protect babies who can feel pain in the womb". The baby's sex, which has been determined since fertilization, is identifiable.

"These unborn babies are feeling pain".

Under the bill, women who receive an abortion would not be sanctioned, but the person who performed the procedure would be subject to a fine and up to five years in prison.

Even so, National Right to Life Committee legislative director Jennifer Popik said her group wants the Senate to vote on the measure because "it highlights for people across the country how extreme people on the other side are on this issue".

Representatives for Louisiana lawmaker Rep. Charles Boustany sent FactCheck.org several documents on his views, including a 2007 paper by Swedish neuroscientist Bjorn Merker that "demonstrated evidence that children born missing virtually all of the cerebral cortex nonetheless experience pain". "The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is a big step in the right direction toward respecting the dignity of all life, especially those babies who can not even defend themselves". Directs the Center to annually issue a public report providing statistics by state for the previous year compiled from all of the summaries submitted to the Center.

According to the leading textbook on clinical anesthesia, Essential Clinical Anesthesia, published by Cambridge University Press: "It is clear that the fetus is capable of mounting a physiochemical stress response to noxious stimuli as early as 18 weeks gestation". "It violates what Americans want, it violates science, and it violates our country's most enduring values".

A 2005 synthesis of available evidence published in the Journal of the American Medical Association concluded that "Evidence regarding the capacity for fetal pain is limited but indicates that fetal perception of pain is unlikely before the third trimester". In the name of humanity and all that America stands for, Mr. McConnell must now also ensure a prompt fair up or down majority vote on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Mifeprix is sold in the United States for abortions up to 10 weeks of pregnancy.

Titled the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the House bill relies on the premise that a fetus can feel pain after 20 weeks of gestation.

Georginio Wijnaldum: Philippe Coutinho really wanted to leave Liverpool last summer
Barca could reignite their interest in Coutinho in the future, but Wijnaldum is happy he stayed at Anfield. It was normal that the club tried so hard to keep him. "We're so happy that he stayed".

House debate came a week after the collapse of a GOP effort to repeal much of President Barack Obama's healthcare law.

The bill criminalizes abortion once a fetus has reached 20 weeks, except in cases where the procedure is necessary to save a mother's life or when the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest.

"Later term abortion is a political term, not a medical one".

But opponents say that even if the law is passed, it will run afoul of the Supreme Court's Roe v. Wade decision in 1973 that recognized a woman's right to an abortion.

And for those who recognize that abortion is murder at any stage, bills such as these are at least a small step toward the end goal of ending all abortions by forcing advocates to look at the process with a more compassionate eye.

Thus, "any health care practitioner present at the time shall humanely exercise the same degree of professional skill, care, and diligence to preserve the life and health of the child as a reasonably diligent and conscientious health care practitioner would render to a child born alive at the same gestational age in the course of a natural birth".

In an open letter to anti-abortion leaders a few months prior to the November election, Trump said he was "committed to ..."

A Republican president is waiting in the White House to sign the bill.
