Vermont Democrats have proposed an abortion law that allows abortion at any time for any reason and strips away all of the infant’s rights. It is more extreme than the New York and Virginia laws.
The lawmakers didn’t even bother to pretend the late-term abortion is to protect a woman’s health. The law doesn’t mention health.
The baby will be born one way or the other and killing the child a moment from birth or immediately after was murder until recently. Most doctors will say it’s more dangerous to kill the baby as s/he is being born than to just give birth.
The General Assembly intends this act to safeguard the right to abortion in Vermont by ensuring that right is not denied, restricted, or infringed by a governmental entity.
Sec. 2. 18 V.S.A. Chapter 223 is added to read:
CHAPTER 223: REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS Subchapter 1. Freedom of Choice Act 11
§ 9493. INDIVIDUAL REPRODUCTIVE RIGHTS 12
(a) Every individual has the fundamental right to choose or refuse contraception or sterilization.
(b) Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry a pregnancy to term, give birth to a child, or to have an abortion.
(c) A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus shall not have independent rights under Vermont law.
