Much has been made in Texas about the 20 week abortion limit proposed by legislation that finally passed despite Texas State Senator's Wendy Davis' efforts to hijack the bill.
The offending terrible bill offered the following points of law:
1) An abortion cannot be performed after 20 weeks unless the baby is to be born dead or the woman’s life is endangered. At 20 weeks the baby can move, suck a thumb, yawn, stretch and make faces.
2) All abortions should be performed in ambulatory medical surgical centers.
3) That physicians performing abortions must have hospital access and provided hospital information to the woman receiving the abortion in case something goes wrong after the procedure and that they must have access to her medical records.
Even the "clump of cells" crowd should agree that an abortion post 20 weeks is barbaric and wrong. Babies at 21 weeks are kept alive and grow into healthy children these days.
41 States in the U.S. prohibit abortions after some point already!
This weekend, Carly Fiorina (appearing on ABC’s This Week Sunday) the former Hewlett Packard CEO, pointed out that only four countries in the world allow abortions that la (after 20 weeks) – Canada, China, North Korea, and the United StatesGreat. We are all Chinese and North Korean now.
