KSFY: Advance copy of abortion measure in hand
The new bill says if a woman's life is in danger, or she is a victim of rape or incest, an abortion can be performed upon certain conditions.You can read that all here, but that last line is complete BS. SOMEONE is going to have to put their name on the line as the prime sponsor of the measure.
Specifically, the bill says if a doctor determines the pregnancy has put a woman's life in danger and another doctor agrees with the assessment, an abortion can be performed.
In a case of rape or incest, the crime must be reported within 50 days of the event. An abortion could then be performed no later than 17 weeks into the pregnancy in both cases.and...
A source tells KSFY there are 25 sponsors of the bill, but there is no prime sponsor, it's a group effort.
Despite Gordon Howie being the likely person whose name is going to be on the line, I'm told that the measure has significant ties to (if not being written by) Harold Cassidy, the new Jersey attorney who has been haunting the halls of the State Capitol lately.
I'll have more on this later.
