House passes 20-week abortion ban

October 4, 2017

abotionThe House on Tuesday passed a bill to ban abortion after 20 weeks.

The bill, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, would penalize medical providers who perform abortions after 20 weeks of gestation with up to five years in prison or fines, or both. The bill contains limited exceptions, including when a woman’s pregnancy puts her life at risk and in cases of rape or incest.

The legislation, which passed 237-189, has support from President Trump, who said in a statement of administration policy Monday that if it were to reach his desk his team would recommend he sign it into law.

The bill, however, is likely to be defeated in the Senate, as it needs 60 votes for passage but Republicans hold only 52 seats. A similar piece of legislation met the same fate in 2015.

    If we can’t outlaw abortion this is at least a great step, but now this has to pass in the senate and has to have 60 votes. There is no way they will get democrats to agree to this. That’s a fact.

    Should have done it long ago. sickening, spineless bastards.

    Murdering SOB’s destroying life by the millions and just allowing it in this so called civilized country. Abortion should be a heartbreaking decision, one that is hard to make and only for rape and incest or other pertinent reasons and even then, it should be felt deeply by the one having the abortion, but women have been hardened and they have been made to feel it is getting rid of a problem, the problem is women today.

    The problem is using abortion for birth control, the problem is the new generations and the lack of teaching they are getting on anything, country, history, their bodies and what makes us civilized and human. They are growing up me, me, me, princess, all about me. My mother was a giver, I was a giver to my family, gave the best to my family, my family came before me, now a baby or child is what, a burden? Well use birth control and get your tubes tied. Liberal men get yourself fixed that way no more babies out of you beasts and bitches.

    Too bad they don’t care about babies AFTER they’re born. And babies with skin colors other than white?? Fugettaboudit. They’re all a bunch of f**king hypocrites.

    This week people once again are mourning the loss of innocent lives in a senseless mass shooting. Many are calling for Washington to do something. While it is sad that 58 people lost their lives, more than 2,400 babies die everyday in abortion clinics in the United States based on 2015 statistics.

    Once again a mother’s womb is the most dangerous place in America. The abortion industry is growing extremely wealthy slaughtering babies in America.
