Trump Ready to Sign House-Passed Ban of Abortions After 20 Weeks

  • The bill to ban abortion at 20 weeks is based on fake science

"The fact is that more than 18,000 late-term, pain capable unborn babies were torturously killed without anesthesia in America in just the past year", Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.), who introduced the bill, said on the House Floor Monday evening.

Five of Louisiana's six members of the U.S. House of Representatives have voted in favor of the Pain-Capable Unborn Protection Act, which prohibits any person from performing or attempting an abortion after the 20-week period. President Donald Trump said he would sign the measure if it reached his desk.

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

Mr Trump demonstrated his commitment to anti-abortion policies on his fourth day in office - he signed an executive order barring United States funding for any global aid groups which give women information about abortion, even if they do not perform the procedures. "We expect that because he really needs a win, he may fight harder to pass this, which of course is to the detriment of women and families". "The only one of 7 countries on Earth, including North Korea and China, which allow elective abortions after 20 weeks".

"Subjecting innocent babies, from the beginning of their six month of pregnancy and later, to this kind of insidious torture does not reflect the true character of America", Franks, R-Arizona, said. The bill would not bring the United States into line with Sweden (18 weeks) or Germany (12 weeks and mandatory Schwangerschaftskonfliktberatung, or abortion counseling) but it would represent a welcome step in the right direction.

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

"Now with a pro-life president in the White House, it's heartening to see the country move beyond the outdated Roe v. Wade science of the '70s", said FRC President Tony Perkins.

To qualify for the rape exception, adult women are required to obtain counseling and medical treatment for the rape 48 hours prior to the abortion.

Similar legislation is already enacted in several states. "It drives women to unsafe back alleys and to risky self-induced abortion".

The Senate still must schedule consideration of the bill, but that seemed unlikely.

Dave Strader, ex-Wings broadcaster, dies at 62
Tapper said the team will be wearing a pin-type logo on their uniforms for the early part of the season to honor Strader. Longtime NHL broadcaster Dave Strader passed away at the age of 62 on Sunday, following a battle with cancer.

Democrats blasted the bill as a "another shameful attack" on women's rights.

House Republicans, however, believe that by passing this bill they will be saving lives.

Defines "abortion" to mean the use or prescription of any instrument, medicine, drug, or any other substance or device: (1) to intentionally kill an unborn child of a woman known to be pregnant; or (2) to intentionally terminate a pregnancy, with an intention other than to produce a live birth and preserve the life and health of the child after viability or to remove a dead unborn child.

But Franks said this is an important bill.

But given that the US Supreme Court has refused to defend state "heartbeat laws" (6-week bans) that have been ruled unconstitutional, other pro-lifers supported his strategy. In Senate, Republicans need to get 60 votes, but y only have 52 seats. Rodney Frelinghuysen of N.J.; Rep. Charlie Dent of Pa.) and three Democrats voting yes (Reps.

Alvaro Morata could miss two months with hamstring injury
Diego Costa was overlooked to replace Motata with the new Atletico Madrid striker having not played this season. Chelsea will now monitor Morata's recovery and hope that he is fit to face Crystal Palace on October 14.

"The bill not only restricts women's control over their own bodies and reproductive futures but also takes a pass at their agency, declaring us too morally or intellectually inferior to know what we are doing and be held responsible for our decisions", Brown wrote.
