House Passes Bill Banning Abortions After 20 Weeks

The abortion issue is a sensitive subject.

It’s an issue that Americans are split pretty much down the middle on.

It is interesting to note that the media has done an effective job at painting a picture where pro-life Americans are a fringe group.

They aren’t. In fact, half the country is morally opposed to abortion.

And if you are one of those people that thinks men shouldn’t be allowed to have an opinion, more than half of the women in this country believe in some restrictions to abortion.

Many of those women believe that 20 weeks is long enough to make a decision about keeping your child.

Today, the House passed a bill reaffirming that idea.

From Fox News:

The Republican-controlled House on Tuesday approved a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy — a measure backed by the Trump White House but still facing long odds in the Senate.

The measure passed 237 to 189.

“So often we get caught up in the policies of this issue and we forget that these are babies, for goodness sake,” Alabama Republican Rep. Martha Roby said in a speech on the House floor. “They feel pain and we need to protect them.”’

Conventional wisdom says this bill will die in the Senate.

But, never say never.

Stranger things have happened.

And just a side note, the heart starts beating at 3-4 weeks.

So it’s pretty difficult to make the argument the child isn’t worth protecting at 20 weeks.
