For those of you who follow the news, you may be aware of the senate bill Being passed around, which is about changing when abortions can be made. It would ban women from getting abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. Exceptions can and will be made if an abortion is necessary to save the woman’s life or prevent substantial, irreversible harm to any part of body functions. But no exceptions for rape, incest, or mental health issues. Disgusting.
House approved, 79-15.
Planned parenthood and other American civil liberties of Kentucky plan to protest this bill. They also filed a lawsuit & are awaiting the judge’s decision.
Planned parenthood said, “it’s not only shameful, it’s dangerous for women.”
But Kentucky is a little hypocritical, if I do say so myself, because there is another bill that’s about to be passed, that forces women to get ultrasounds of their baby before getting an abortion. The medical doctor would show the lady the images of the unborn baby, as well as allow them listen to the heartbeat. But, allegedly, the women have the right to refuse…. So, why make the damn bill anyways?
“It’s just another way to shame women,” said a private state representative, before adding, “pro choice is American.”
Senate approved, 32-5. Sad.
Let me just throw out there that Matt Bevin signed both bills. This is the man that Kentucky keeps nominating as Governor.
After signing the bills, Bevin gave a statement: ” This is truly a new day in Kentucky.”
This statement also came with the ‘right to work’ bill, which forces workers to join a union, or pay union dues, as a condition of employment. Opponents say it’s a way for employees to gain “benefits.” Yeah right, it’s about working more while getting paid for less. Slavery coming back around?
Senate approved, 25-12.
Good for you Biven, I’m glad you feel good about yourself.
