Vermont Lawmakers Pass Disturbing Abortion Bill
Vermont lawmakers have passed a disturbing abortion bill which claims every person has a right to an abortion for any reason and strips unborn children of any rights.
The Blaze is reporting that critics claim the legislation is “more expansive of abortion rights than extremist bills passed in New York…”
The bill passed in the House 106 to 36 and states “Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry a pregnancy to term, give birth to a child, or to have an abortion.”
It also does not recognize the personhood of an unborn child.
“A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus shall not have independent rights under Vermont law,” states the law.
The Blaze writes, “Republicans introduced several amendments to the bill, including one that would require women to receive an ultrasound before aborting their baby, but the objections were voted down by Democrats. Another amendment would require minors to have parental consent before aborting a child — that was voted down as well.”
The bill now goes to the Democratically controlled senate and Vermont Governor Phil Scott has already indicated he would sign it if it passes.
