– If the health care professional determines that there is fetal viability, the health care professional may provide abortion care only if… the abortion is necessary to protect the life or health of the patient.
– “Fetal viability” means that, in the professional judgment of the attending health care professional… there is a significant likelihood of a fetus’ sustained survival outside the uterus without the application of extraordinary medical measures.
– “Health of the patient” means all factors that are relevant… including, but not limited to, physical, emotional, psychological and familial health and age.
So in other words, if the baby can survive outside the womb but the mother’s emotional health needs to be protected – up until delivery – then abortion is perfectly legal!
Yikes… just… yikes.
Illinois: “Hold my beer.”
You can thank these Illinois State legislators who sponsored the bill:
The media’s in a fix. Good ol’ Uncle Joe, the 2020 savior of the Democrat party, has finally had his handiness catch up with him. Way way back before there ever was a #metoo movement, Joe was just a friendly close talking, hair sniffing, Joe-will-be-Joe kind of guy. That day was what, last Tuesday? Now just keep your hands in your pockets and only smell the hair growing uncontrollably out of your own nose.
Joe’s new problems wouldn’t exist if Al Franken hadn’t pretended to get handsy while goofing for the camera. Now the media are confused as to which side their on. Do they criticize Joe and contradict the elevated status Joe’s received from the Democrats up to this point or ignore the behavior ’cause that’s just Joe. If there wasn’t that ghost of Al Franken hovering over DC, the media would be drooling over Uncle Joe and his touching affection he shows for women and little girls. And we do mean touching.
Speaking of Franken. See this post from the era of Franken’s demise, as a reminder.
In an era of name calling elevated to heights not seen since the New York Times called Robert E. Lee a flapdoodle foozler, one name we didn’t expect to hear in 2019 was “baby killer” yet there you are Democrats.
You’ve got to imagine they woke up the day after blocking a bill to protect a born person – otherwise known as, well, a person – thinking “#$%@, I just had the weirdest dream that I threw away my moral compass, stomped on the constitution and pandered to the fartherest of the farthest left we could go.” Otherwise known as a Tuesday.
