Republicans In Georgia Ban Abortions After 20 Weeks Of Pregnancy, Even In Cases Of Rape

Republicans just can't stop waging war against women.

It was a one sided battle that resulted in Democratic women walking out of the legislature while their male Republican colleagues voted to take away their right to choose. Now the bill that prompted the walkout has been signed into law by Georgia Republican Governor Nathan Deal, according to the Chicago Tribune.

With its passage, Georgia is now the seventh state to ban abortion after 20 weeks. The legislation made no exceptions for women who are raped or impregnated by incest. The bill does, however, allow an exception if the mother’s life is in danger or if the fetus has extreme defects that make survival doubtful.

    Sounds like Republicans are waging war on infanticide. 20 weeks is 5 months. The kid is closer to birth than conception.

    If a woman is raped, does it really take her 20 weeks to realize she is pregnant? The liberals' WAR ON CHILDREN continues.

    You are 20 weeks pregnant. (fetal age 18 weeks)
    Baby now weighes about 11 ounces and is roughly 7 inches long.
    Baby is 17cm long crown to rump, and weighs about 310 grams.
    The baby can hear and recognize the mother's voice.
    The mother will probably start feeling the first fetal movements.
    The toenails and fingernails are growing.
    The growth of hair on the rest of the body has started.
    The skin is getting thicker.
    The heart can now be heard with a stethoscope.

    If a woman is raped, the hospital will give her the plan B pill.

    You must be the female conservative anti-woman.

    I simply want women to be informed. Go watch an abortion and see if you feel the same.

    You already posted that and I answered. I won't stoop to the level of insulting you. I do think women need to be educated. Shame on me.

    The last thing you want is informed women; it's why you support these extremely anti-women's rights laws.
  • jimih67 Samantha 2012/05/03 18:01:30
    Typical. Attack someone who differs with your opinion. A real woman wouldn't murder her child. That makes YOU the anti-woman.
  • Samantha jimih67 2012/05/03 22:44:47
    Thanks for exhibiting the simplicity of the conservative mind. Why do you believe the state should control a woman's body?
  • Samantha jimih67 2012/05/03 22:46:36
    It's so funny continues love to embrace fetuses but once a child is born conservatives want to eliminate WIC and other programs that benefit children in the United States.
  • Superman Samantha 2012/05/03 19:36:15
    So a womans point of view isn't as important if it doesn't conincide with yours? Women are only allowed to think one thing?

    The GOP war against women continues. Of course, most conservatives lie or deny it.

  • Superman Samantha 2012/05/04 00:00:08
    Thats an evasion not a counter argument. Try that sometime.

    At the end of the day Obama supporters realize he can't win on achievements so they have to create classwarfare and faux "war on women" that doesn't exist.
