Just wanted to discuss this topic. You will be hearing a lot about how the POTUS over-dramatized the NY law just passed on late Term abortion of a pregnancy. The actual wording is “Within the first 24 weeks or after 24 weeks if necessary to preserve the mother’s health or if the fetus isn’t viable.”
What changed was the addition of “or of the fetus isn’t viable” Also the new law not only allows NON_physicians or Non-Physician assistants to perform the procedure, but it also reinforces the immunity protections “healthcare workers” receive that protects them from any liability as long as they are judged to be “acting in good faith”
Who are these healthcare workers? Are they like Dental Hygienists? Jesus!
Anyway, the other thing I think needs defining (if it hasn’t already been defined in the fine print, something I haven’t read yet admittedly) is the phrase “if necessary to preserve the mother’s health.” I always assumed it was more like " if necessary to preserve the mother’s life" so I think we need to explore the minimum requirement of “mother’s health”. In my mind that could include a professional vegas Showgirl whose livelihood depends on her figure and since childbirth can cause a deformity in the size and shape of the Cervical opening in the female hips, it is a threat to her “health” ??
