Republican Gov. Signs Extreme Abortion-Till-Birth Bill Into Law

Vermont Gov. Phil Scott, a Republican, signed an extreme pro-abortion bill into law on Monday, permitting abortions to be performed up until the moment of birth in the state for any reason whatsoever.

The legislation, H.57, includes zero abortion restrictions. The unborn, who have detectable beating hearts at around six-weeks gestation and can feel pain as early as 20 weeks, can be legally killed at any time during a woman’s pregnancy for any reason at all. Notably, young girls of any age will not be required to seek parental consent before having an abortion.

“Like many Vermonters, I have consistently supported a woman’s right to choose,” Scott said in a statement, reported by The Hill. “This legislation affirms what is already allowable in Vermont – protecting reproductive rights and ensuring those decisions remain between a woman and her health care provider.”

Gov. Scott added that he “appreciate[s] the respectful tone and civility from all sides throughout this discussion.”

“This bill proposes to recognize as a fundamental right the freedom of reproductive choice and to prohibit public entities from interfering with or restricting the right of an individual to terminate the individual’s pregnancy,” H.57 reads.

“A public entity … shall not, in the regulation or provision of benefits, facilities, services, or information, deny or interfere with an individual’s fundamental rights to choose or refuse contraception or sterilization or to choose to carry a pregnancy to term, to give birth to a child, or to obtain an abortion,” the bill continues. “No State or local law enforcement shall prosecute any individual for inducing, performing, or attempting to induce or perform the individual’s own abortion.”

The new law is similar to that of New York’s euphemistically-named Reproductive Health Act, which allows abortion until the moment of birth for essentially any reason, loosens restrictions on those who can perform abortions, and strips the unborn of any protections under the state’s penal code. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, celebrated the bill signing, as did New York Democrat lawmakers.

The move from Scott, who is notably serving in a liberal state, is out of step with other Republican governors. In May, Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, a Republican, signed the nation’s strictest abortion bill into law, outlawing all abortion, save an exception for the life of the mother. In a handful of other states with Republican governors, such as Ohio and Georgia, “heartbeat” bills have been signed into law, protecting the unborn with detectable heartbeats (around six-weeks gestation) from the fatal procedure.

The sweeping pro-life legislation made its way to Louisiana, when Gov. John Bel Edwards, a Democrat, signed a heartbeat bill into law.

According to Fox News, Edwards said his faith directs him in supporting life, but the position also holds “personal significance”: “Nearly three decades ago, he and his wife decided to have his daughter, diagnosed as a baby with spina bifida, against the doctor’s advice to abort,” the outlet reported.

    These governors are going to pay price when they meet their makers. Anything for a vote will not help them when it comes to God. I truly believe that anyone who aids and abets abortions on any level are going to have a “come to Jesus day” and it will not bode well for them. If I knew these people personally, I wouldn’t even let them shake my hand – their hands are full of blood.

    A woman does not have the right to kill her unborn innocent child! Abortion has nothing to do with her health Care! Abortion eliminates the rights of the innocent human being she is carrying! Abortion is cruel, violent murder! Anyone pushing and backing it will answer to our creator and they will suffer for making these babies suffer!

    I agree with all 3 above commentaries. ABORTION IS MURDER AND ANYONE WHO APPROVES IT IS GUILTY OF THE SAME..MURDER IN THE FIRST DEGREE. THIS GOVERNOR IS DESPICABLE……!!!!
    I am sick and tired of this Pro Choice political rhetoric. Man or woman have always had the right to choose. It is a God given right called FREE WILL….BUT WHAT YOU DO WITH THAT FREE WILL YOU HAVE TO BEAR THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR CHOICE. BE PREPARED TO EXPLAIN TO GOD WHEN YOU COME BEFORE HIM AT THE END OF YOUR LIFE. !!!!!

    I do not understand why they are so determined to make murder legal when it comes to an innocent baby.
    I am all for a women’s choice. There are tons of preventive methods she can choose to prevent becoming pregnant. That is the women’s choice from the point of her ability to become pregnant. She then has double option as she is joined by the male to both have the ability to prevent pregnancy.
    This murdering of infants is pure EVIL.
    Were they to witness their own grandchildren being murdered right before birth, would they still agree and feel the same?? If they can say it is still ok to crush these babies, they are truly sick and deserve all of HELL’s heat when they arrive there.

      If this “abortion until the moment of birth” is NOT struck down by the Courts, expect to see euthanasia of senior citizens, when the 20 somethings decide our quality of life is not worth living or we are in the way and too expensive to keep fed and housed, to follow. Liberals are on a very slippery slope and it will come back to haunt everyone of them; not only in the next life, but in this one also.

    This inhuman and inhumane man should be compelled to have to watch the murder of one of these innocents, and then see how his conscience reacts. Murder is murder. This is not a right. But it is making genocide legitimate in our society. The next population to attack will be the senior citizens – mark my words.

    Gov. Phil Scott of Vermont NEEDS to be VOTED out of office as soon as possible. He does NOT even NEED to join the Dem. Party. Because so many of the Democrats are coming out now and calling ABORTION exactly what it is. MURDER. So the people of Vermont have Gov. Phil Scott saying that murdering babies ALL throughout a pregnancy is just fine. DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!

    Why can’t the writers of these bills say something like “if a woman cares a baby for 20 (?) weeks, and then decides she doesn’t want the child, she will carry the baby to term and place it for adoption at birth giving up all parental rights immediately. If necessary, the woman will receive reasonable subsidy funds (between declaration and birth) until she is released from the hospital and the cost of the birth will be paid by the government.

    I know this isn’t written in “legal” language, but you get the drift. I can see special conditions for drug, deformed or retarded babies, but that is far beyond my current thinking.

    This Gov. nothing but a low life murderer. what the hell is wrong with people. There are enough a ways of birth control that if you don’t want a child be responsible both the woman and man. If it is rape there is a morning after pill and an immediate D&C. There is no reason in this world to be murdering innocent babies. These liberal all shouting about their rights. What about the rights of the baby. That child needs a voice. Anyone who aborts and innocent child is evil and the only maker you will see is the devil. Shame on all of you.

    The right of women to choose, is to wait for marriage and then plan a family. Young firls in colleges are behaving in a promiscuous way, sleeping around then aborting the end result, a baby! Disgusting and PP are encouraging them. They would never be interested if it wasn’t that they wanted the dead baby for their own evil money making schemes. If a family decide their daughters pregnancy is a shock to them and want the baby removed, then consider adoption, Otherwise, take birth control pills, Planned Murder make billions off dead babies. they will all rot in Hell unless they repent.

    Can we stop saying abortions are women’s health rights or even worse “reproductive” rights do they understand the definition of the word reproduce? When you murder the reproduction of you and another combined and created within your body you’re actively preventing reproductive actions taken by the female body triggered by her actions and that of a male. Let’s label it with the proper term shall we the cancellation of reproductive rights and the absolute nullification of the growing human beings basic right to exist. This is what pisses me off they refuse to call it what it really is and want to place friendly blanket terms for in reality is violations of a females womb with her consent yet how do we get consent from an unborn fetus who can’t even speak yet, but they certainly can feel that blade going into their little necks then severing their spines they feel fear from the fact death is embracing then before their own mother would.

    I am against abortion but the one thing that you are all overlooking… these are future Democrats and liberals that are being aborted.
