House Bill 954 threatens to put an obstetrician in jail for caring for any pregnancy with complications after 20 weeks. If this legislation becomes law, a woman whose water breaks at 21 weeks gestation would be legally forced to have a Cesarean delivery in order to protect the “life” of a non-viable baby since the process of labor usually results in death of the baby at this gestational age.
This is not acceptable medical care, yet it is the care that is being dictated by your elected representatives. The legislators sponsoring this bill do not have medical degrees, but they are practicing medicine.
In the video below, a very angry Rep. Sharon Cooper, (R-Marietta) blows the whistle on Georgia Right to Life for threatening to end her political career if she didn’t support the bill. Never stand between a Rabid Right-to-Lifer and a potential challenge to Roe v. Wade. More from AJC here.
