News from the United States – Good and Bad

The abortion issue has been front page news in the US of late.  

The Good News has been from the following states – Ohio, Mississippi Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana – where a variety of laws curtailing abortion under certain circumstances – and at certain stages – have been enacted.  Well done to the pro-lifers in those states!

 

It was interesting to see an Alabama state politician being interviewed on TV recently.   When asked why he voted for a ban on abortion following rape or incest, he replied that, although he was in favour of that – he just voted against it.  Just shows what political pressure will do!

The Bad News!   States like Illinois, New York, Rhode Island, to name a few – have voted to ensure more not less abortion with the usual acclaim from the pro-abortion media – which uses dishonest rhetoric in describing abortion – as do the political proponents in this country.  eg women’s reproductive rights! They never have the courage to use the work kill.

In relation to the Illinois bill, on 12 June 2019 USA Fox News’ Caleb Parke reported the following: 

“The bill, effectively immediately, repeals a 1975 Illinois abortion law. It eliminates spousal consent, waiting periods, criminal penalties for abortion providers and restrictions on abortion facilities, such as licensing requirements and health and safety inspections. It also repealed the state’s Partial-birth Abortion Ban Act and establishes ‘that a fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus does not have independent rights under the law, of this State.’ Former Illinois state representative and Thomas More Society Vice President Peter Breen slammed the measure as ‘the most radical sweeping pro-abortion measure in America and makes Illinois an abortion destination for the country,’ protecting abortion to a greater degree than Free Speech and other First Amendment rights.”
