“Abortion can never legitimately be considered a form of family planning, because thriving families are characterized by their living members and the life they share in common. Abortion can never legitimately be considered a form of family planning, because what defines a ”successful” abortion is a dead member of the human family. Full stop. There is no way around this reality.”
“I have thoroughly reviewed both H. 3320 and S. 1209, and it is my legal opinion that they have severe consequences for the health of women and the unborn. The Act expands abortion allowances beyond Roe v. Wade and its progeny, rejects the state’s legitimate interest in protecting life, and prohibits commonsense protections for women’s health from being enacted in the future.”
“I have thoroughly reviewed these bills, and it is my legal opinion that they would enact common-sense protections for women and girls in Massachusetts and would withstand constitutional scrutiny.”
Rhode Island’s H.B. 5125, the Reproductive Privacy Act, would effectively expand abortion up until birth.
“I urge this Committee to further Rhode Island’s important state interests in preserving human life and protecting women’s health and reject S.B. 152.”
“H.B. 140 places already-vulnerable persons at even greater risk, fails to protect the integrity and ethics of the medical profession, and goes against the prevailing consensus that states have a duty to protect life.”
“A.B. 180 is a constitutional, valid exercise of the State’s right to ensure that accurate, reliable data and statistics on abortion procedures are available to women, the medical community, and the general public.”
“A.B. 182 would protect baby girls and children diagnosed with Down syndrome from discrimination based on the fact that they are female or have a disability by prohibiting abortion on the sole basis of the unborn child’s sex or diagnosis or potential diagnosis of Down syndrome or another congenital disability.”
“A. 179 would require an abortion practitioner to take all medically appropriate steps to preserve the life of a born-alive infant.”
“This Committee has an opportunity to take an important step toward ensuring the women of Delaware are not denied vital information like I was, but instead empowered to make a fully informed decision.”
“I write to strongly support Delaware’s H.B. 52, the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would protect maternal health, as well as the lives of unborn children who can feel pain, by limiting the availability of abortion after 20 weeks except when necessary to protect the life or physical health of the mother.”
