Late-Term Abortion Ban Would Trump Coloradans' Access

Republicans cited scientific research by pro-life organizations saying fetuses are able to feel pain from 20 weeks

"Yesterday, we had a man in Las Vegas with guns that could shoot... and kill 59 people and wound 500", said Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee. "We love it until it's born, then it's somebody else's problem". "So I see it a little bit like that". The only exceptions are if the abortion is "necessary to save the life of the pregnant woman" or "when the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest", the bill's summary states. President Donald Trump has already voiced his support of the bill.

"The administration strongly supports H.R. 36, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, and applauds the House of Representatives for continuing its efforts to secure critical pro-life protections", the executive office of the president said in a statement.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., announced the bill last Tuesday, contending H.R. 36 "will respect the sanctity of life and stop needless suffering".

Proponents of the bill say it will protect women and claim fetuses can feel pain after 20 weeks. He said the law shouldn't treat children differently based on if they're in the womb or not. "That is painful", Moore said. So, as our nation's understanding of fetal pain has become more advanced, protections for pain-capable unborn children have been signed into law in 20 states, including my home state of Indiana. We urge Republicans not to let up until this bill is law. Lawmakers have different explanations for why babies can feel pain at that week.

Dr. Colleen Malloy, assistant professor, Division of Neonatology at the Northwestern University, in her testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, said: "When we speak of infants at 20 weeks post-fertilization we no longer have to rely on inferences or ultrasound imagery, because such premature patients are kicking, moving and reacting and developing right before our eyes in the neonatal intensive care unit".

The United States is one of only seven countries that allow elective, late-term abortions without restrictions. However, Merker later told the New York Times that his research "did not deal with pain specifically".

Putin Boxed in By Iran, Turkey on Iraqi Kurdish Referendum
From September 29, worldwide air service with airports in Iraqi Kurdistan has been stopped. It is clear that the referendum in Northern Iraq is also part of the same project.

The landmark 1973 Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade protects women's right to have an abortion.

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

Opponents of the legislation contend the 20-week abortion ban would be unconstitutional. "According to Carrie, 'We both calmly made the decision to have an abortion".

In the article and abstract "Who Seeks Abortions at or After 20 Weeks?", authored by Diana Greene Foster and Katrina Kimport, researchers found women aged 20-24 were more likely than those aged 25-34 to have a later abortion and women who discovered their pregnancy before eight weeks' gestation were less likely than others to do so.

An earlier version of H.R. 36 passed the House in 2015, and was blocked in the Senate that same year.

The National Network of Abortion Funds is sickened that Congressional legislators have chosen the anniversary of Rosie Jimenez's death, from an illegal abortion due to the Hyde Amendment, to put politics ahead of the healthcare needs of their constituents and try to once again unconstitutionally ban abortion at 20 weeks. "The education lets people know not only that it's legal, but that babies are surviving premature birth".
