|A full-term infant. Third-trimester elective abortion is currently|
disallowed in Delaware. Passage of SB5 will change that.
That brings us to SB5, the late-term abortion bill up for vote in Delaware. The bill's supporters say there is no late-term abortion bill, that this is just a wee attempt to bring old fashioned language into compliance with federal law.
I don't buy it. I think the abortion industry in Delaware intends to permit elective late-term abortion in the state. Late-term abortion is already permitted in this state if certified as necessary by either two physicians (medical necessity) or a physician and a psychiatrist (psychological necessity).
I've got no patience for trying to mount an argument. So I'll just let anybody who is interested read the following exchange between a pro-SB5 person (Rep. John Kowalko) and an anti-SB5 person (me, Rae Stabosz). Make your own judgment if you're even patient enough to look for truth. IMO there's very little search for truth in these legislative battles. But in case you want to delve a little.
