Senate Bill 1457, Sen. Barto’s pro-life bill, likely will be voted on within the next few days. This bill will protect preborn babies from discrimination by prohibiting abortion based on a genetic condition, like Down syndrome.
The constitutionality of this bill was affirmed this week when the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that it is in the legitimate interest of the state to ban Down syndrome abortions because it protects members of that community from selective abortions, it protects pregnant women and their families from doctors who encourage abortion of Down syndrome babies, and it protects the conscience of medical professionals who refuse to perform Down syndrome-selective abortions.
And, SB 1457 does more – it also protects women from the abortion industry’s dangerous efforts to sell chemical abortions to women through the mail, leaving them alone and at risk of grave illness or death.
