In a remarkable vote, an anti-choice dominated House of Representatives failed to pass HR 3803, a bill that would have imposed a 20-week abortion ban on the District of Columbia.
A federal judge today upheld Arizona’s unconstitutional pre-viability ban on abortion, allowing the law to go into effect later this week. The law bans all abortions at 20 weeks from a woman’s last menstrual period (LMP) with no exceptions for a pregnant woman’s life or health unless she is experiencing a dire and possibly life-threatening emergency.
I hope she at least got a good photo op out of the deal.
Danielle Deaver from Nebraska knows the true impact that 20-week abortion bans can have on women and their families, because her state already has a 20-week ban. When Danielle experienced complications in her pregnancy at 22 weeks, her family’s personal loss became a “nightmare.” You can help prevent the next ban from being put in place.
