The General Assembly is considering a bill, already passed in the House (HB 954), that would ban abortion in the state after 20 weeks.
Pro-choice advocates say the legislation panders to personal passions rather than scientific evidence, and that it ignores women’s health and especially harms low-income women. Pro-life supporters counter that it is well-documented that fetuses can feel pain at 20 weeks, and the bill includes an exception for the life of the mother.
