Unborn Child to 'Testify' on Ohio Abortion Bill

Postby Nulono » Mon Mar 07, 2011 5:41 pm

Unborn Child to 'Testify' on Ohio Abortion Bill
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- A fetus has been scheduled as a legislative witness in Ohio on a unique bill that proposes outlawing abortions after the first heartbeat can be medically detected.

Faith2Action, the anti-abortion group that has targeted Ohio to pilot the measure, called the in-utero witness the youngest to ever come before the House Health Committee at 9 weeks old.

Faith2Action president Janet Folger Porter said the intent is to show lawmakers who will be affected by the bill, which abortion rights groups oppose. Ohio Right to Life has not endorsed the measure.

An aide to committee Chairman Lynn Wachtmann said a pregnant woman will be brought before the committee and an ultrasound image of her uterus will be projected onto a screen. The heartbeat of the fetus will be visible in color.

This is a stupid stunt, but if it helps, more power to 'em.

1 perunum = 100 percent = 84' percent

Ok, there's a Bill that will make abortions illegal after the heartbeat of the fetus is detected, and anti-abortionist groups are against this?

Ummm....does that make sense to anyone else?

Just an appeal to emotion. Seriously, I can do an ultrasound of a monkey and it'll look similar. Just a cheap ploy.

What does a heartbeat prove anyways? I mean a person in a Persistent Vegetative State has a heartbeat, but their brain may be long gone. Just because the body has bodily function doesn't mean it's sentient or even sapient.

You'd think the anti-abortionist would be FOR this bill. Alas, I gave up trying to understand Humanity a long time ago.

But you aren't allowed to kill a person in a vegatative state. Which is silly because not only is there little to no chance of recovery, there taking up both money and space.
