Why did you leave this part out?
"When we talk about third trimester abortions, these are done with the consent of obviously the mother, with the consent of the physicians, more than one physician by the way. And it is done in cases where there may be severe deformities, there may be a fetus that is non-viable."

Heard about that today...
Seems the left are jockeying for position on who is more immoral.
If you did that to laboratory testing animals you would go to jail...
And the governor was still calling it abortion... I had thought the term at that point would be infanticide?
So I guess if you're 15-16, have a kid and throw it in the dumpster then it's OK now?
Sad part is that not a SINGLE Democrat that I have seen has stood up and said "Wait, What?"
They're just all supporting it.
I was a preemie by 2 months.
This is just crazy.
Where is the data that even points to this being necessary? How often is the mother's life in danger when a child is capable of being born that justifies an abortion?
The bill reduces the number of doctors required to certify the alleged medical need for an abortion from three to one, and — critically — eliminates any required showing of severity before the doctor and mother can determine that the birth would impair her physical or mental health. Under the bill’s actual text, virtually any claim of impairment would suffice to meet the act’s requirements. Anxiety? Depression? The conventional physical challenges of post-partum recovery? Any of those things could justify taking the life of a fully formed, completely viable, living infant.

Crazy how 2 words can change the meaning of the outcome. Additionally, getting up in arms about it isn't necessary. The bill is not going to pass.
