US House passes bill to ban abortion after 20 weeks of gestation

While it is the first time the House, controlled by the GOP since 2011, has passed the bill under a president willing to sign it, the legislation is not expected to gain traction in the Senate.

"We have hope", Ms. Mancini said.

Pro-Life groups like the Family Research Council celebrated the decision, saying that the bill "conforms law to modern science". "We have to ban these late-term abortions".

"Multiple scientific studies indicate that by 20 weeks after fertilization, an unborn child's brain and nervous system have developed sufficiently for that child to feel pain", Hultgren stated.

"As recently as 2014, it was estimated that 430 abortion facilities in the United States were willing to perform abortions on unborn children 20 weeks and older".

If the bill passes in current form, "his advisers would recommend that he sign the bill into law", the Office of Management and Budget wrote.

"The United States is now out of the mainstream in the family of nations, in which only 7 out of 198 nations allow elective abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy", the statement continued.

He added that "every child, from conception onward, deserves love and the protection of the law". Although Attorney General Mark Herring has said such a ban is likely unconstitutional, we can not trust a Trump court to respect Roe v. Wade. Several states ban abortions in the second trimester, forcing women to travel long distances to get the procedure done.

"This bill strips women of their autonomy while showing extreme disregard for their lived experiences and the unique circumstances they may face during a pregnancy", stated CRR Senior Policy Director Maya Rupert. Unfortunately, they do not feel they have an obligation to listen to the millions of women and providers who can speak for themselves, and say that a ban is both medically and morally unsound. "It drives women to unsafe back alleys and to risky self-induced abortions".

Other than political posturing, why would Republicans try to pass such a law if its effect on the abortion rate is insignificant?

"Yesterday, we had a man in Las Vegas with guns that could shoot... and kill 59 people and wound 500", said Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tennessee. "Do they talk about protecting Americans from that type of violence? No".

"While Donald Trump and Republicans steadfastly pursue their cruel and unconstitutional attack on women, Democrats will fight this disgraceful bill and continue to stand up for the rights of women across the country". Defines "appropriate relief" in a civil action to include: (1) objectively verifiable money damages for all injuries, psychological and physical, occasioned by the violation; (2) statutory damages equal to three times the cost of the abortion; and (3) punitive damages.

In general, women receiving abortions in the second trimester are a small minority who are likely facing unique or hard circumstances, Ely said. "We should care for the defenseless-for those who will only be saved if we act to protect them", McCarthy said. In 2013, six Republicans voted against it and six Democrats voted for it.

The bill's biggest obstacle will be in the U.S. Senate, where it is unlikely to garner the required 60 votes. "But this bill did receive ... support in 2015 from Democratic senators".
