Louisiana state Representative Danny McCormick, a Republican who introduced the "Abolition of Abortion Act" legislation in March, said the impending ruling from the nation's high court should not delay the state's efforts to ban abortion access.

The bill amends the state's existing homicide law and states its purpose is to "ensure the right to life and equal protection of the laws to all unborn children from the moment of fertilization by protecting them by the


"Satan's crown jewel":
After the bill was passed in the state's House Committee for the Administration of Criminal Justice, McCormick issued a statement on Facebook saying that it was a "HUGE VICTORY."

"The next step is a House Floor vote. This is the FIRST time a bill to END ABORTION, without compromise, has made it this far in the legislative process. Thank you to everyone who has stood in favor of the truth and for what is right," the statement said. "Please continue covering this mission in prayer! We are going after satan's crown jewel, to protect the lives of the innocent, and that is no light duty."

Pre-Roe, I was 8 yrs old. I came home from school to find my Mom lying in a puddle of blood. She was weak & asked me to call a neighbor. She was miscarrying, but the embryo would not abort. For 48 hours, she bled while doctors transfused blood, waiting. Abortions were illegal.

There is going to be a demarcation between states that hasn't been seen in this country since the Civil War:

TN Gov Lee signs law criminalizing mail-order abortion pills

Gov. Bill Lee signed legislation Thursday that would criminalize a person for obtaining abortion pills via a mail delivery service.

The law would mean a Class E felony charge with the potential for a fine. Amended out, the original bill had up to a 20-year prison sentence.

. . . Tennessee has a trigger law if Roe v. Wade is overturned, meaning 30 days after a reversal, no one can get an abortion in Tennessee unless the pregnant person is in danger of a loss of life. There are no exceptions in the law for rape or ------.

It's a felony in Wisconsin too, from the moment of conception onward. with no exceptions for rape. Been on the books a long time, unenforceable due to Roe, but never overturned. And our bad faith gerrymandered legislature will ensure it remains the law in this state when SCOTUS repeals Roe.

Republicans are sick -----, there really is no other way to describe them at this point.

If Louisiana really cared for the mental and physical well being of women it would revoke their right to vote in elections. Voting can be very stressful and the female constitution is not designed to deal with that much heavy thinking.

"Abortion is Homicide."

Deliberately aborting a human fetus has always been homicide, whether it was legally recognized as such or not. The only legitimate question is if/when it can be considered justifiable homicide.

Wrong. It was considered homicide for many centuries to kill a fetus after it "quickened".

...after it "quickened" is not always.

And there is plenty of historical, legal, and religious (not just Christian) precedent for abortion.

Official abortion laws did not appear on the books in the United States until 1821, and abortion before quickening did not become illegal until the 1860s. If a woman living in New England in the 17th or 18th centuries wanted an abortion, no legal, social, or religious force would have stopped her. www.americanprogress.org

Carla Spivack, a scholar of the law and English literature at the Oklahoma City University School of Law, argues that dating back to the 14th century in England, many sources suggest abortion was not considered illegal before the point of "quickening," or when the woman was able to feel the child move in her womb. www.theatlantic.com

Ben Franklin wasn't even the first issuer of a math textbook on either side of the Atlantic to include among its materials a recipe for abortion, though his book certainly had the most reliable and explicit one. William Mather's 1699 Young Man's Companion also has one. slate.com

Abortion before ensoulment was tolerated by the Catholic Church. Abortion was only declared illegal and condemned by the Roman Catholic Church in the 1800's. The Catholic Church condoned abortion until the fetus "quickened," meaning the time when a pregnant woman first feels the unborn child moving. www.ewtn.com

Fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) scholars have given a range of time during which they said it is appropriate for a Muslim to have an abortion " from a few weeks to a few months. But the key reason they said the procedure is allowed at all is that verses in the Quran " the Islamic holy book " indicate that a fetus is not a "life" until the soul is breathed into it; that does not happen at conception, but at some later time.More conservative scholars of Islamic law said that after 120 days, abortion is prohibited, except in a case where the mother's life is in danger. www.aljazeera.com

The Talmud, a two-part Jewish text comprised of centuries worth of thought, debate and discussion, is also helpful when discussing abortion. The Talmud explains that for the first 40 days of a woman's pregnancy, the fetus is considered "mere fluid" and considered part of the mother until birth. The baby is considered a nefesh " Hebrew for "soul" or "spirit" " once its head has emerged, and not before. Jewish tradition and scholars have also acknowledged a pregnant woman's potential "great need" to terminate a pregnancy. www.usatoday.com
