Utah Governor ponders fairness of stricter anti-abortion law as women protest

Utah Governor Gary Herbert (R) expressed reservations as women protested new, even tighter restriction on abortion, ’Are we listening? Are we getting all the information we need to?’ Utah already has a law banning abortions after 18 weeks which is in litigation now. A separate bill to require women to look at an ultrasound before receiving an abortion failed when 6 women in the Senate walked out.

Women denying a law that would require other women to be fully informed prior to an abortion...

18 weeks is a fully formed fetus with heartbeat, brain activity, clearly defined features and will likely require dismemberment to remove from the womb. There's no such thing as pro choice, the choice has always been there, it's pro not taking responsibility for your actions. Then abortion advocates come back with, "What about rape, what about a threat to the mother's life?" Well way to bring up the most obscure cases to try to justify it but there are already common practices in place for those.

Sounds like another weak Republican looking for an opportunity to submit and appease.

Alright - So abortion is very widely divided, and that's fine. If it's the babies body, and the baby's choice, then if the baby turned into an adult that didn't want to be born, he'd get arrested for ATTEMPTING suicide? Just a thought experiment more than an actual talking point.

TRY PLANNED PARENTHOOD. It's called BIRTH CONTROL.

How terrible that governments should be involved in deciding about women and their bodies. First, of course, a woman's body is hers and nobody else's. "Pro Life" should be about a woman's life first. Instead. pro lifers concentrate on a human embryo's life. But consider this: Soon there will be eight billion humans--eight billions slowly committing suicide. The torture and killing of nonehuman life necessary or thought to be necessary to keep eight billion people alive is beyond imagination. In fact, the animal and plant life that is so magnificent, so glorious by itself, has been disappearing, first slowly, now fast and faster, until there will be little life left to.keep us humans alive either. Real "pro lifers" are not the ones that concentrate on the life of human embryos, but people who want to save LIFE ON EARTH.
