Michigan Legislature votes to ban abortion procedure

Michigan Senate votes to ban abortion procedure

Republican Gov. Kay Ivey has not confirmed whether she will sign the measure into law, but during the 2018 midterms, 59 percent of voters expressed their support for a bill banning abortions in the state.

Republican-backed legislation advancing in MI would ban a common second-trimester abortion procedure except to safe a women's life.

Democrats, who hold eight seats in the 35-member Senate, alternately criticizing the proposed abortion ban as an attempt to control women and a waste of taxpayer dollars. Republican Sen. Clyde Chambliss said as debate began on the proposed ban.

"Second", said French, "the Georgia code section that criminalizes "feticide" (such as when a man attacks a woman for the goal of killing her unborn baby) specifically states that 'nothing in this Code section shall be construed to permit the prosecution of ... any woman with respect to her unborn child'".

The bill passed the House of Representatives 74-3 and the Senate 25-6, LifeNews reported.

The only exceptions are for a serious health risk to the pregnant woman or a lethal anomaly of the fetus.

The Duke of Sussex proved this to be true when he visited the Oxford Children's Hospital on Tuesday. But they said they were thrilled for Meghan and Harry , and couldn't wait to meet Archie .

After a Democratic amendment to the bill that would have provided exceptions for victims of rape and incest failed 21-11, Democrats railed against the prospects of young crime victims having to carry the resultant fetuses to term and having to then live with their assailants' children for the rest of their lives.

Sixteen states have passed or are working to pass bans on abortion after a doctor can detect what they call "a fetal heartbeat in the womb", usually at about six weeks, before many women know they are pregnant.

"To take that choice away from that person who had such a traumatic act committed against them, to be left with the residue of that person if you will, to have to bring that child into this world and be reminded of it every single day", Figures said. If she signs it, the bill will become law. It criminalizes the procedure, reclassifying abortion as a Class A felony, punishable by up to 99 years in prison for doctors. "We want abortions to be safe, and we want them to be few, but it should be legal, because there will be abortions", Democratic Senator Linda Coleman-Madison told The New York Times. Ivey has not publicly taken a stance on the bill but has previously aligned herself as anti-abortion, lamenting the courts striking down another Alabama abortion law previous year.

The group Physicians for Reproductive Health said the near total ban on abortions would have a disastrous effect on healthcare.

"The governor intends to withhold comment until it makes its way to her desk for signature, " deputy press secretary Lori Jhons wrote in an email prior to Tuesday night's vote. The American Civil Liberties Union of Alabama said a complaint is being drafted to challenge the ban.
