This is propaganda masquerading as legislation.
Late abortions are due to terminal malformations and other severe problems. Keeping a newborn alive for a few extra excruciating hours of pain is against the Hippocratic oath. NICU doctors, and the unfortunate parents who are with them, know the depth and breadth of the emotional trauma of having to watch a newborn die. They are the only ones who should be making the heartbreaking decisions about withdrawing life support from terminal newborns.
Who among us think they know better than those doctors and parents? If you do, you are wrong. Woefully so. Whether in the womb or out, withdrawing support - deciding to let the infant pass with as much comfort as possible, not prolonging the pain - is one of the most agonizing decisions any parent can make. Placing some government bureaucratic “one size fits all” law in between those most qualified to make this decision - parents with doctors advice and consent - is lunacy.
