Get ready to see women going to prison for miscarriages or other problems resulting in a failed birth as well.
No only the doctor would be charged with a felony and lose the license to practice.
I'm pro choice but you do make a good point. Some federal laws can be broken and the Fed's look the other way and then others get broken and all hell breaks loose.

Maybe the state can violate another federal law and legalize pot to pay for it.
Praveen Halappanavar repeated his claim that a doctor, named at the inquest in Galway as Dr Katherine Astbury, told him that a termination could not be performed because "this is a Catholic country".
His 31-year-old wife, Savita, died at University College hospital in Galway on 28 October last year, eight days after being admitted. She had been 17 weeks pregnant. Her case has become the focus of international debate and protests over Ireland's strict laws on abortion.
Halappanavar told the inquest that he and his wife had been sent home from the hospital on Sunday 21 October, but returned a couple of hours later because she was in severe pain. He was later told that his wife was miscarrying.

The moment that you engage in an action that results in a new life being in your womb, that child is a individual with their own rights.
To murder that unborn child is one of the most evil things that a woman can do.
The six-man, five-woman jury agreed that Ms. Halappanavar, 31, died from “medical misadventure” involving the failure of the hospital’s staff to identify, document or address her development of blood poisoning. Ms. Halappanavar’s husband, Praveen, said the hospital staff refused to give his wife an abortion even though her fetus had no chance of survival, citing the country’s Roman Catholic social policies against abortions.
The staff waited three days until the 17-week-old fetus had died. By then Ms. Halappanavar was in an advanced state of septicemia, and she died four days later.
The six-man, five-woman jury ruled that Ms. Halappanavar, who was a dentist, died from “medical misadventure,” meaning incompetence in her care.
At the conclusion of his fact-finding inquiry, the Galway coroner, Dr. Ciaran MacLoughlin, praised Mr. Halappanavar for his courage in protesting publicly against his wife’s medical care at the hospital, where doctors had refused to perform a termination while the fetus had a heartbeat.
Outside the courtroom, Mr. Halappanavar said legal action would continue to try to hold particular staff members responsible for his wife’s death. He said the hospital’s inaction for several days while his wife’s health deteriorated during a drawn-out, painful miscarriage meant she might as well have stayed at home.

why is it republicans are always yammering on about smaller government, then they pass laws like this ?
I wonder this myself. They go on and on about small government, freedom and states rights. But then almost all their policies/laws they try to pass are bans, restrictions and government getting very personally involved into ones life.

Wow, and with a Democrat for President. Who would have thought???
Don't make any attempt to see any laws passed during a Republican Presidency or anything.
Besides that, since 2014 the Republicans have had the majority in both the house and senate. So wouldn't that mean it was actually them who were passing these laws technically.
