Only 2 Legislative Days left in 2016 Regular Session.

The 2016 Legislative Session has had many prolife bills put forward including Dismemberment Ban, Ultrasound Right to View, Heartbeat Bill banning Abortions after the human heartbeat can be detected , ban om licensing abortuaries within 2,000 feet of public K-12 schools and a constitutional amendment to define human life beginning at fertilization. Ban on Assisted Suicide got out of committee but no vote on House Floor.
The BEST chance for pro-life legislation becoming law this year is SB363 Banning Dismemberment Abortions which has already passed the Senate and House committees but needs one more vote on the Floor by the full House. Sponsored by Rep. Mac Butler and Sen. Phil Willaims.

_______________________________________

The Supreme Court decision in Roe v Wade basically said that they could not determine when an preborn became a human being or a person - ignoring evidence of biological and sociological sciences and even our English language. And so they stripped the preborn's right to life.

The Supreme Court decision in Doe v Bolton basically legalized abortion through all stages of pregnancy, including grueling partial birth abortion - all on the basis of "mother's health" - interpreted freely to include the inconvenience of the mother!
