    LifeNews has profiled the new bill Senate Democrats have put forward that would invalidate pro-life laws nationwide that either limit abortions or provide protection for women’s health.

    But a new report suggests the legislation would go even further — by invalidating the very Pennsylvania state law used to prosecute notorious late-term abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell.

    Weekly Standard reporter John McCormack writes that that bill “would wipe hundreds of state abortion laws off the books–striking down everything from late-term abortion limits to health and safety regulations in many states.”

    The Women’s Health Protection Act, introduced by Democratic Connecticut senator Richard Blumenthal, would even invalidate a law used to convict Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell earlier this year, and it could potentially force taxpayers across the country to directly fund elective abortions for Medicaid recipients.

    “The basic principle is that there can be no restriction that is not also imposed on a medically comparable procedure. If they single out abortion or reproductive rights, it’s going to fall foul,” Blumenthal said at a November 13 press conference. Blumenthal told THE WEEKLY STANDARD following his remarks that it’s “for doctors to decide” what counts as a “medically comparable” procedure.

    It is absurd to be against requiring doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges. Kind of like being against having ID to vote.
