Representative Weaver Sponsors Bill to Ban Most Abortions After 20 Weeks

A bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy will be considered by Tennessee lawmakers.
State Representative Terri Lynn Weaver has filed the bill which would outlaw abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy unless the life of the mother is in danger.
“I had the bill on file last year. I put in on hold because of the litigation going on across the nation. But currently 19 states now have passed this same legislation. It would prevent aborting a child that can survive at 20 weeks from the womb unless it’s a case of incest or there is harm to the mother,” Representative Weaver told WJLE
“The pendulum is switching. More and more people believe that this is not just a blob of muscle tissue inside the womb but that this is actually a human. It has a separate DNA. And its just downright murder to rip a child from the womb at this stage. In fact, the United States is only one of seven countries in the whole world that allows this. Europe will not allow abortions after 12 weeks so we need to address this. More and more people are being educated on it and seeing that science has proven that you can see this child moving around in the womb. I believe life begins at conception and we have science to prove that,” she said.
Representative Weaver was in Smithville Friday for her public forum “Coffee and Conversations”.
