US House passes 20-week abortion ban

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

There are nerves, but the connections are incomplete and can't register pain. But it fails to cite any research supporting that claim. According to a 2005 study from the University of California, San Francisco, fetuses were found to not be able to perceive pain until the third trimester, at 26 weeks.

The American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has said fetuses can not experience pain before at least 24 weeks of development. On its face, it doesn't make any sense.

The bill had will now head to the Senate, where it must get 60 votes to become law.

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. "The United States is now out of the mainstream in the family of nations, in which only 7 out of 198 nations allow elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy".

Planned Parenthood says it is a woman's choice to end the life of her baby at any time during pregnancy.

Almost half the women had higher education past high school and had previous live births.

Besides listing the numerous diseases tied to smoking, companies will also be required to say that they had "intentionally designed cigarettes with enough nicotine to create and sustain addiction". That rate is lower than it is for pregnancy-related deaths among women, the wire service said.

"Again, these children are there being assisted, and if you touch them, if you try to dismember them once they're born, they will feel the pain", Mr. Smith said.

"The vast majority of abortions are done early", Ekbladh said.

"The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act-I like to call it Micah's Law-is called what it is because children like Micah feel pain", McCarthy said.

Yet Hughton is the last manager of a newly-promoted side to beat Arsenal on their own turf, when his Newcastle team won 1-0 in 2010.

The issue of fetal pain, scientifically, is relatively unsettled.

If so, the strategy certainly isn't new.

The rape must be reported in the victim's file with "a hospital licensed by the State or operated under authority of a Federal agency, a medical clinic licensed by the State or operated under authority of a Federal agency, from a personal physician licensed by the State, a counselor licensed by the State, or a victim's rights advocate provided by a law enforcement agency". This bill prohibits federal funding for abortions and for any insurance plan that includes abortion on demand. The paper concluded that the neural circuitry allowing pain to be felt wouldn't even be fully developed at 22 weeks, making the cutoff moot.

The bill also stipulates that any abortion committed on an "excepted" baby must be done in a way that makes it most likely the baby will survive.

Donald Trump's administration has backed proposed legislation that would see abortions banned after 20 weeks in the US.

"That's a lot of angst, heartache, stress and trauma multiplied by this ban."

Madame Speaker, even U.S. Supreme Court Justice Kennedy gets it.

In reasonable medical judgment, the abortion is necessary to save the life of a pregnant woman whose life is endangered by a physical disorder, physical illness, or physical injury, including a life-endangering physical condition caused by or arising from the pregnancy itself, but not including psychological or emotional conditions.

"Ending the unsafe and violent practice of late-term abortions should not be controversial", Johnson said in a statement.

"This [bill] is not going to help anybody", Davis said.
