Democrats try to legalize third trimester abortion in all 50 states

Laurel Duggan, DCNF

Democrats are trying to ram through a bill which would legalize abortion nationwide, including during the last three months of pregnancy when a child can survive outside the womb.

The “Women’s Health Protection Act” (WHPA), introduced by Democratic Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal and cosponsored by 47 other Senate Democrats, would create a right to abortions before viability, which is generally defined at around six months. It would also effectively bar states from outlawing abortion even in the third trimester if a health care worker says the pregnancy is bad for the mother’s mental or physical health.

Democratic New York Sen. Chuck Schumer said the Senate would vote on the bill next week, Politico reported. A leaked Supreme Court draft opinion published by Politico Monday revealed that justices would likely overturn Roe v. Wade, intensifying Democrats’ push to codify abortion rights into federal law.

The bill would ban “prohibition[s] on abortion after fetal viability when, in the good-faith medical judgment of the treating health care provider, continuation of the pregnancy would pose a risk to the pregnant patient’s life or health.”

The legislation does not distinguish between physical and psychological health, according to Blumenthal, and the bill urges courts to interpret its provisions “liberally.”

If the bill passes, it will strike down every state law and regulation limiting abortions in the first six months of pregnancy, including specific testing requirements and telehealth restrictions that apply to abortion but not comparable medical procedures.

The bill also grants health care providers, including non-physicians, the right to perform abortions, including midwives, nurse practitioners and physician’s assistants.

“The strategy behind the WHPA seeks to hide, censor, and avoid the fact that abortion is designed to kill a human being,” Thomas Jipping, senior legal fellow at the Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies wrote.

Blumenthal and Schumer did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

Just so we are perfectly clear about this.

Not ONE civilized nation allows abortion past 24 weeks. Not ONE.
The only ones with no gestational time limit are North Korea and China.
Is that REALLY who we want to be?

The DemonRats just keep getting more and more disgusting, thinking that will save them.

It’s repugnant.

Raised on a farm when the mother cow would loose a calif they would walk the field calling and pacing for days it’s a very sad thing to watch. I think the cows are smarter than some women .

So the fight is for the ability of women to choose to kill babies that are viable human beings? 37 years and I am abandoning my chosen party.

Abortion, per se, does ‘not’ fall under the powers enumerated by the Constitution to the federal government. As such, it should fall to the individual states to decide the legality of abortion withing their borders. The states must start taking back their rights…rights that have been usurped by the federal government.

There are a few ‘post birth’ abortions I wouldn’t mind seeing even though it would be considered extremely ‘post birth’.
