Abortion-supporters Planned Parenthood, Kansas N.O.W. and TrustWomen (a Washington D.C. Political Action Group founded by George Tiller’s long-time lobbyist Julie Burkhart) oppose HB 2218, the Pain-capable Unborn Child Protection Act.  HB 2218 will ban abortions after 22 weeks gestation because of the excruciating pain felt by the unborn at this age.

Abortion supporters cannot seriously challenge the data so they falsely claim this bill interferes with medical treatment of high risk pregnancies, even with specialists denying it.

Legislators are being warned not to intrude on the “rights” of parents of unborn children with disabilities to abort them past the midterm of pregnancy–a “prenatal euthanasia.

Abortion supporters opposing HB 2218 brought no intellectual firepower to counter the medical experts that had testified definitively on Wednesday for the pro-life side.

Instead, bill opponents tried an emotional appeal by bringing Tiffany Campbell from South Dakota to the podium.  She recounted her personal situation in 2006, with a twin-to twin transfusion syndrome pregnancy.  Campbell says she followed the maternal expert recommendation to abort the ailing twin and that her only other option was a life- threatening operation.

Yet she claimed to oppose HB 2218, which clearly allows abortion when the mother’s life is threatened!

Campbell’s situation in 2006 might have qualified as a true exception permitted under HB 2218 (section 3 of the bill).  Such abortions would be permitted if, “in reasonable medical judgment”, (more…)
