Bill Introduced To Ban Abortion after 20 Weeks

A Republican lawmaker is proposing a ban on abortions after 20 weeks.  State Senator Bryant Richardson introduced a bill yesterday that could charge doctors with a felony for providing abortions to women more than five months pregnant.  According to the bill, the 20 week mark is when a fetus can begin feeling pain.  Scientific research puts that point somewhere between 20 and 27 weeks. The state currently allows abortion up to the point in a pregnancy when there is a reasonable likelihood of the fetus' survival outside the uterus.
