New Stanek WND column, “Bill protects preborns after 20 weeks”


On Dec. 3, 2009, NE late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart told the New York Times that after the death of colleague George Tiller in May he began committing abortions "'past 24 weeks."...

The NYT added:

Dr. Carhart's fee schedule lists prices for abortions up to 22 weeks and 6 days (at that point, $2,100 in cash or $2,163 on a credit card), but notes that abortions after 23 weeks are available "after consultation with our doctor," and that abortions after the 27th week may take four days.

The problem is NE has a law banning abortions past the age of viability. Although unspecified, currently a baby is considered viable at 23 weeks.

This wasn't the first time Carhart publicly flouted the fact he allows himself a wide swath of wiggle room on whether a baby he is aborting is viable or not.

Hence the introduction of the Abortion Pain Prevention Act by NE Speaker of the Legislature Mike Flood on Jan. 21.

The Abortion Pain Prevention Act takes us into a whole new world of abortion law, banning all abortions after 20 gestational weeks on the basis of a preborn baby's capacity to feel the pain of it all. At this age a baby anatomically "has the physical structures necessary to experience pain," states the bill, based on scientific evidence....

Watch this legislation. It has the potential to be as explosive in the 2000s as the Partial Birth Abortion Ban was in the 1990s, and just as damaging to the abortion movement. Meanwhile, if passed, it would save exponentially more lives.

And once again Carhart, the ultimate loser of the PBA Ban battles before the Supreme Court, is in the middle of it....
