Mississippi, Kentucky, Georgia, Ohio, Alabama passing 6 week abortion ban bills

    What would these laws do?
    These so-called “heartbeat” laws ban abortion after the point when a fetal heartbeat can be detected. This often occurs as early as six weeks into a pregnancy, when an ultrasound may be able to detect the pulsing of what will become the fetus’s heart.

    These laws therefore move the ban on abortion in those states more than four months earlier than the current constitutional standard.

    Doctors measure the start of pregnancy from the date of a woman’s last menstrual period, which is usually about two weeks before a fetus is conceived. (That timing is used because it’s generally impossible to know the exact moment of conception.) So these new laws would essentially prohibit abortion when an embryo is four weeks into development.

    That — usually just two weeks after a missed period — is before many women realize they are pregnant.

    The Georgia law makes exceptions, allowing later terminations of pregnancies resulting from rape or incest, something not included in every version of these laws. Most of the laws allow abortion if the woman’s life or health is seriously threatened.

    How else could they force rape and incest babies to be born, without them, their culture would come to an end.

    Republicans need to take care of the demographic challenge and this is their chosen way.

    All this is going to do without any supplemental education program is going to make it so many more babies are born to parents who cannot or will not support them.

    Forcing women to have babies they do not want is a great start for parenthood.


    Police: Ohio man raped 11-year-old who is now pregnant

    Ohio’s new “heartbeat bill” means that the 11-year-old girl will likely be forced to carry the child to birth, regardless of the fact that she was raped.

    According to NPR, the “Human Rights Protection Act,” as the heartbeat bill was renamed, bans abortions as early as five or six weeks, before many women even know they’re pregnant. It adds criminal penalties for doctors who violate the law, and does not include exceptions for cases of rape or incest.

    “Ohio is the sixth state in the country to enact such a law, but none have yet to take effect due to lawsuits.”


    I hope Georgia enjoys their soon to be sausage party state

    Even women who seek lawful abortions out of state may not escape punishment. If a Georgia resident plans to travel elsewhere to obtain an abortion, she may be charged with conspiracy to commit murder, punishable by 10 years’ imprisonment. An individual who helps a woman plan her trip to get an out-of-state abortion, or transports her to the clinic, may also be charged with conspiracy. These individuals, after all, are “conspiring” to end of the life of a “person” with “full legal recognition” under Georgia law.

  8. Easily. Society has to protect women ( especially young and vulnerable women ) from people like you and your outdated ideas.
