GOP touts slate of contentious abortion legislation. (Madison.com, 5/8/2019)
The bills, some of which are slated for a vote in the Assembly next week, range from one that could impose a life sentence on a doctor who intentionally allows the death of a baby born alive after an attempted abortion, to another that would attempt to thwart abortions based on fetal attributes such as race, gender or health condition. During an Assembly public hearing,
Democrats and health care professionals slammed the several pieces of legislation for spreading what they called false and dangerous information about abortions and creating unnecessary and redundant protections. Republicans said they were seeking more protections for the unborn and providing more information to mothers about alternatives to abortion.
