In Georgia Senate, a test of true conscience

The critical moment had come.

For almost four hours Monday afternoon and evening, members of the Georgia Senate had debated whether a proposed ban on abortions past the 20th week of pregnancy should apply even to “medically futile” pregnancies in which the fetus has little or no chance of life. Already approved in the House, the horrific provision would force expectant mothers in Georgia to carry those doomed pregnancies to full term, even though they knew that their pregnancies would end in excruciating death for their malformed babies.

At times, the debate had become bitterly personal. Many in the Senate chamber, particularly Republicans, also knew that the vote would determine whether they remained in good standing with Georgia Right to Life, which insists that medically futile pregnancies be included in the ban, no exemptions.

Now it was time to vote. Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle called for a show of hands: Who supported an exemption for medically futile pregancies, and who did not?

The voting method was crucial. A vote by show of hands would not produce a roll call record of how individual legislators had voted. That in turn would mean that GRTL and other activists would have a harder time targeting senators who had dared to defy them.

Looking around the room, I saw a surprising number of hands raised — a clear majority in favor of exempting medically futile pregnancies. A knot of Republican senators in the back of the chamber, hidden from sight of most of those in the public gallery above, were among those with their hands raised.

Seeing what was about to happen, a senator opposed to the exemption quickly demanded an end to the hand count and asked for a recorded vote. A few of his fellow senators joined him in that demand. Cagle announced the vote would be recorded.

Suddenly the dynamics changed. Would support for the exemption now fade away?

The knot of senators in the back of the chamber broke up. I saw one Republican senator take a deep breath and mutter a grim “OK then” to himself, as if he was summoning his courage, before he marched back to his chair to cast his recorded vote.

The exemption passed with 13 pro-life Republican senators deciding to face down the extremists and vote their conscience, regardless of the political consequences. In alphabetical order, those 13 backing the exemption were John Bulloch of Ochlocknee, Ronnie Chance of Tyrone, Bill Cowsert of Athens, John Crosby of Tifton, Frank Ginn of Danielsville, Greg Goggans of Douglas, Tim Golden of Valdosta, Johnny Grant of Milledgeville, Bill Jackson of Appling, Fran Millar of Dunwoody, Jack Murphy of Cumming, Cecil Staton of Macon and Ross Tolleson of Perry.

Millar, who had spoken in favor of the exemption from the Senate floor, later grinned about what had happened. “You got your surprise of the day right there,” he said, noting that only a few of his fellow Republicans had switched positions once a recorded vote was required.

The bill itself, which reduces the legal time frame for abortion in Georgia to 20 weeks from the constitutionally required 26 weeks, went on to pass the Senate easily. Like similar bills in other states, it is intended to provoke a legal challenge that would end up in the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade.

However, because it was changed in the Senate, HB 954 must be voted on again in its amended form in the House. A lot depends on state Rep. Doug McKillip, the Athens Republican who has been the bill’s prime sponsor. He has argued fanatically against an exemption for medically futile pregnancies, claiming it would gut the bill. In fact, his extremism on the issue may help draw Republican primary opposition against him this summer.

If McKillip insists that the exemption be removed in the House to restore the bill’s ideological purity, the bill will die. With only two legislative working days left in the 2012 session, the bill may die anyway, a victim of its champions’ extremism.

(In a tweet to its followers this morning, for example, GRTL denounced the Senate action by claiming that “Eugenics has come to GA.”)

However, I’m not sure that those backing the bill really care. They could have crafted this legislation in ways that would have allowed it to pass easily, but they seem less interested in making law than in identifying those who would dare to defy them, even on such a deeply personal and profound issue.

Monday night, 13 Georgia Republicans were willing to stand up and take that risk.

A roll call record enshrines the names of those with integrity. There were a few cowards in the face of a threat to self interest, but not enough to turn the tide.

Thanks for the report Jay. Seems the right wing would rather their ideology be hidden. Stealth ideas, not intelligent ones. GRTL shouldn’t dominate anyone’s vote. I’m surprised and pleased there are a few Republicans that can discriminate between hysteria and honest understanding of the world outside the mega church or back alleys. A small revolution, but let’s hope a real one.

Jay, I wish it were true that those Republicans voting against this showed courage and conscience. It’s far more likely they had already done the voting math and knew more of their electorate were against this than for it. I’m afraid courage and conscience are two things Georgia Republicans have long since shown they completely lack.

Now, to the article: I praise those 13 Republican Senators for their principled stand in making sure abortion should be on the table for circumstances such as the one in question. I wish they would see that women have the right to that choice no matter what, but at least they went this far in rebuffing their extremist donors.

However, I would be willing to bet they get lambasted in their next elections for it.

First, Georgia law specifically addresses the killing of a unborn child. O.C.G.A. § 16-5-80. Feticide – “(a) A person commits the offense of feticide if he willfully kills an unborn child so far developed as to be ordinarily called “quick” by any injury to the mother of such child, which would be murder if it resulted in the death of such mother.”

Since the “futile pregnancy” is so uncommon, hard to fathom why that would be a deal-killer for one generally horrified by elective abortion. Smarter to move one step at a time in any event, so that opposition to the moves comes to realize that the incremental change does not cause the end of the world.

It will make the Pro Life crowd “feel better” if abortion was outlawed. Give them some sort of sense of accomplishment

With that said, they ALL know that abortion isn’t going anywhere and people will go out of the country, find a doctor or worse someone who doesn’t have the training to do it…….

THEY KNOW THIS is true and KNOW that history says that it is

More abortion debate?

It ought to be about what extremes the GRTL have reached, and what constitutes a tipping point in their support among elected officials, and what that might mean in the near future for legislative efforts regarding reproductive freedom here.

But alas… you know the drill.

“WE THE PEOPLE”

People: “human beings, as distinguished from animals or other beings.”

It’s what makes us different from plants and animals. If you don’t realize
that you have my compassion.
