senate Bill S. 2311

Should the U.S. Ban Abortions After 20 Weeks of Pregnancy (With Exceptions)?

Argument in favor

Unborn babies can feel pain and abortions that occur after 20 weeks of pregnancy are cruel and should be outlawed except in cases of rape, incest, or to save the mother’s life.

There’s no reason why a woman would need an abortion after 20 weeks unless it’s a life-threatening emergency. Even then, it can still be debated that a woman can no longer terminate her child since at that point, the baby would definitely be able to feel pain.

Yes, murder should be illegal. If there is any defensible reason for government, it is first and foremost to protect life.

Argument opposed

This bill would place undue restrictions on womens’ right to make their own reproductive health decisions. There shouldn’t be a time limit on the right to an abortion.

When we deal with pregnant women who need abortions, we must assume that they have done everything possible to prevent having a child already. Abortion is a last resort because it is expensive, difficult, emotionally taxing, and potentially even dangerous. If Congress wants to honor religious freedom, don’t make laws based on Christian ideals. Support a woman’s right to choose what to do with her body. To the Senators, remember that your constituents are watching how you vote on this major issue: make the right choice for them.

Everyone. EVERYONE seeking an abortion after 20 weeks is doing so because they discovered tragic news during their 20 week ultrasound. These families already feel the harsh sting of a lost child, they already feel all the guilt the indignant and soulless evangelicals want them to feel, they have already considered every possible alternative, and they have still come to the right decision for their family. Your blinded righteousness need not be an additional burden in their lives during this already challenging time.

By limiting women’s bodily autonomy you are assisting in discrimination and promoting inequality. Religious freedom is freedom FROM just as much as it is freedom TO. Lawmakers need to stop trying to write religious ideas into legislation. In this case, in particular, it effectively interferes with women’s rights to make their own decisions about their own bodies and futures. It’s her body, it’s her choice. Keep your religion and opinions to yourself and apply them to your own decisions. To force them upon someone else against their will is fascism.
