RNC Supports 20 Week Ban on Abortions

by Jerry Bader

This plank is a personal passion of mine . At the state and federal level abortion legislation has been passed that will do very little stop abortions. Post-Kermit Gosnell the 20 week gestation limit on abortions is popular with Americans and will have a real impact on ending the most gruesome of abortion procedures (not that they aren't all gruesome).

This item should be in the Party's final platform and if Republicans get control of both houses they should pass this and force President Obama to veto it. Most of Europe bans abortions after the first trimester. This isn't an extreme measure. Opposing it is an extreme position.
