  • West Virginia Overrides Governor's Veto On Abortion Law

    03/07/2015 4:31:27 AM PST · by Kaslin · 8 replies ^ | March 6, 2015 | Matt Vespa
    The newly elected Republican legislature in West Virginia flexed its muscles today by overriding Democratic Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin veto of an abortion law that would ban the practice after 20 weeks. In other words, late-term abortion is banned in West Virginia (via AP): The ban provides some exemptions for women in medical emergencies, but not for rape and incest. The bill is based on the assertion that fetuses can feel pain at 20 weeks, which is disputed in medical research. Opponents say it's unconstitutional and intrusive into doctor-patient relationships. Ten other states ban abortions after 20 weeks. The West Virginia...

    In an open letter released on Tuesday, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker said he would sign legislation banning most abortions after the fifth month of pregnancy, the point after which infants can feel pain and survive if born prematurely. "As the Wisconsin legislature moves forward in the coming session, further protections for mother and child are likely to come to my desk in the form of a bill to prohibit abortions after 20 weeks. I will sign that bill when it gets to my desk and support similar legislation on the federal level," Walker wrote. "I was raised to believe in...

    From former clinic worker Jewels Green: “ For anyone familiar with what goes on with human remains after an abortion, foot length is quite important. Measuring the foot of the deceased is the most accurate way to determine fetal age post-mortem. Tiny feet were measured beside me more times than I can count. Measuring tiny feet was how abortion facilities matched pre-abortion estimates of fetal age with the reality after death. The age determined by the measurement of the tiny feet was the age put on the forms that I completed for the state Department of Health abortion statistics.” JEWELS...

    After a monumental battle that saw national pro-life groups and abortion supporters engage in a furious fight in the state of New Mexico, voters in Albuquerque today defeated the nation’s first city-wide ban on late-term abortions. Initial results from 50,000 early and absentee ballots showed 56 percent of voters against the proposal, while 44 percent supported the ban on most abortions after 20 weeks. The totals from voters casting ballots on election day didn’t change those percentages much and, with 28 of 50 precincts tallied, the vote remained 55-45 against the ban. Some pro-life advocates are asserting the results are...

    “Just sit on the toilet. You don’t have to look at anything.” These are the words our undercover investigator – 27 weeks pregnant, with a big belly – heard on January 14, 2013. The setting was Southwestern Women’s Options, in the heart of the late-term abortion capital of the United States — Albuquerque, New Mexico. The investigator was seeking a late-term abortion – the sort only a few facilities, including Southwestern Women’s Options, will do. The counselor told her how the procedure is done: how the abortionist would stab her abdomen with a needle containing digoxin, a heart-stopping poison. How...

The “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” (H.R. 1797), introduced by Arizona Republica Trent Franks, would end abortion after a point that scientists agree unborn children can feel pain. In a nearly party-line vote, the measure passed 228-196. Six Democrats voted yes. Six Republicans voted against the bill. Ten Congressmen did not vote.

    An abortion battle could be brewing in Albany, as Gov. Andrew Cuomo plans to propose a major change to abortion laws in New York State. CBS 2 has learned that Cuomo will introduce a bill on Tuesday that would allow abortions after 24 weeks of pregnancy to protect a woman’s health. The bill would fall in line with federal law. Currently, New York State only allows late-term abortions if a woman’s life is at risk. Planned Parenthood outlined a 2009 bill with reportedly similar goals. The 2009 Reproductive Health Act would “guarantee a woman can make her own personal, private...

    The grand jury report is full of horrific and gruesome details about the clinic that Gosnell ran for more than three decades. Patients were neglected; providers were not certified; and cats were allowed to roam and defecate in the clinic. “The walls appeared to be urine-splattered,” the Philadelphia district attorney’s office found when it inspected the clinic in August 2010, months after it had closed that February. “The procedure tables were old and one had a ripped plastic cover. Suction tubing, which was used for abortion procedures – and doubled as the only available suction source for resuscitation – was...

    Asked specifically if he supports "late term" -- second and third trimester -- abortions, Obama affirms that he is "pro-choice." In other words, yes, if a woman decides to end the life of her child in the ninth month of pregnancy, that should be her "choice." He has also voted against bans on a horrifyingly grisly procedure known as "partial birth abortion." These positions put Obama significantly out of step with prevailing opinion. When he was running for president in 2008, Obama told a Planned Parenthood audience that one of his first acts in office would be to sign the...

House members passed the bill by a 37-22 vote and abortions after that time period would not be allowed except in very rare cases of medical emergency. The bill also requires abortion facilities to allow women to have an ultrasound of their unborn baby at least 24 hours prior to having the abortion. In many cases women change their minds about a planned abortion after seeing the images of their developing child. Americans United for Life president Charmaine Yoest commended Brewer...

Carhart isn't saying whether his plans include opening a new facility or offering the abortions at an existing practice.

    Thousands of Late-Term Abortions Will Continue Following Death of George Tiller Washington, DC -- The killing of late-term abortion practitioner George Tiller has focused the nation's attention on abortion, but it hasn't shown the spotlight on the number of late-term abortions done every year. Even after Tiller's death, which pro-life groups have thoroughly condemned, late-term abortions will continue. According to the Centers for Disease control, 1.3 percent of all abortions -- nearly 9,000 a year -- are done after 21 weeks into the pregnancy. That's 8,482 babies who, in 2005 alone, could have potentially survived outside their mother's womb, according...

Kathleen Sebelius and two other state officials in a bid to block state-funded abortions and establish under Kansas law that life begins at conception. The lawsuit, filed Thursday, claims abortion violates Section 1 of the Kansas Constitution, which guarantees all people "equal and inalienable natural rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." The Kansas House of Representatives ordered the lawsuit three years ago. Abortion opponents hope eventually to challenge the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, which...

    London, England ( -- A new study by British researchers finds that almost half of the unborn children who are born at 23 weeks into the pregnancy survive the premature birth. The results may prompt British lawmakers to move back limits on late-term abortions and could be used to strengthen laws in other countries. The study appears to confirm the thesis that advancements in medical science and technology are making it easier for doctors to treat babies who are born prematurely and to do so at earlier ages. Researchers at University College Hospital London found that 42 percent of the...

    What happens when a court constitutionalizes infanticide? We ask the question because a federal appeals court in Virginia appears to have done just that. In a contentious 2-1 decision last week that places Virginia in the hot seat of the abortion debate, the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond threw out Virginia's partial-birth abortion ban, sanctioning the actions of an abortionist plaintiff who crushes the heads and dismembers the arms and legs of infants as they emerge from the womb. The law the court struck down was similar to the partial-birth abortion ban Congress passed in 2003 and...

    A Virginia law banning a type of late-term abortion is unconstitutional because it lacks an exception to protect a woman's health, a divided federal appeals court ruled Friday. The decision by a three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a ruling by U.S. District Judge Richard L. Williams of Richmond. The Center for Reproductive Rights challenged a law passed by the 2003 Virginia General Assembly that bans a procedure generally performed in the second or third trimester in which a fetus is partially delivered before being killed. Anti-abortion activists call the procedure "partial-birth abortion." The Virginia...

    Wichita, Kansas, is known word-wide as the Abortion Capital of the World. The sole reason for this distinction is Abortionist George Tiller. According to the LA Times article, 88% of Americans oppose the gruesome procedure for which Tiller is known so well. This front page article paints a very real picture of Women's Health Care Services, but only if you strip the euphemistic expressions. The following article details the barbarity, with Mr. Newman's comments inserted in red italics in brackets.

    COLUMN ONE A Late Decision, a Lasting Anguish # A Kansas doctor is under investigation for performing abortions others won't. His clients say outsiders can't grasp their pain or gratitude. By Stephanie Simon, Times Staff Writer WICHITA, Kan. — The moment is burned forever in her mind: The small exam room, her husband's ashen face, her sobs as the doctor guided a needle into her womb to kill her son.

    WICHITA, Kan. — The moment is burned forever in her mind: The small exam room, her husband's ashen face, her sobs as the doctor guided a needle into her womb to kill her son. It's been 4 1/2 years, and still Marie Becker can feel Daniel kicking inside her, kicking and kicking as she choked back hysteria — kicking until the drug stopped his heart and she felt only stillness. She prayed Daniel would forgive her. She prayed for forgiveness from God as well. Becker had been taught that abortion was a sin; she wanted so to believe it might...

    MORE than half of all late-term abortions in South Australia involved mothers carrying healthy babies, figures compiled for The Advertiser show. From 1998 to 2002, there were 377 late-term abortions – classified as more than 20 weeks – of which 16 were performed at 24 weeks or later. The mother's mental state was the most common reason for late-term abortions, with 196 recorded in the five years. Fetal abnormalities led to a further 171 abortions, with the remaining 10 being performed because the mother had developed a medical problem. The head of the Health Department's Pregnancy Outcome Unit, Dr Annabelle...

    MARTIN HASKELL, George Tiller, and Warren Hern have several things in common. All three are abortionists who specialize in late abortions. Haskell's name is closely linked with the partial-birth abortion method. Tiller and Hern may be the only two abortionists in the United States who openly advertise their willingness to perform third-trimester abortions. Finally, all three men have opened their checkbooks to support Senator John Kerry's bid to be president of the United States. Their contributions to Kerry's campaign total $7,000. That is not a vast sum compared with the millions being spent by liberal groups to attack President Bush....

    All the recent hubbub concerning what President Bush said or didn't say about British intelligence, Iraq, uranium, and Africa prompted me to reread his State of the Union address. By now everyone surely knows that the President's speech was factually correct. But in case there is anyone out there who has not read it, here's the quote: "The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa." Democrats and the media are attempting to make political hay out of those 16 words: Did Bush lie? What did he know, and when did he know...
