Lawmakers in Delaware are considering a bill that would roll back many of the state’s pro-life laws. SB5 maintains the U.S. Constitution provides for abortion of preborn babies prior to viability and the life laws in question are in violation.
“The bill is headed to the House for final vote,” said Nicole Theis, executive director of Delaware Family Policy Council, one of Family Policy Alliance’s 40 state-based allies. “If it passes, Delaware will potentially become a magnet for late-term abortions and profiteering abortionists. There is no accountability or enforcement in the bill.”
The law is being debated even as an abortion seller is coming under scrutiny for a botched abortion.
A woman was taken from Planned Parenthood Delaware in a private car to the hospital even though she was in extreme pain. No ambulance was called.
Larry Roy Glazerman, the abortionist at the facility, recently testified before the Legislature. He said that abortionists, such as himself, should have the final say about whether a preborn baby is “viable.”
“SB 5 gives abortionists the authority to decide if a baby is viable or not. Even those who say they are pro-choice have a problem with abortion without restrictions, specifically, late term abortions,” Theis said. “This takes Delaware back to the dark ages of Roe v. Wade, ignoring over 40 years of legal rulings to better protect women. Polls consistently show that Americans believe abortion should come with restrictions. We’ve never seen this much bipartisan opposition to an issue. Ever.”
The Delaware Family Policy Council, along with Family Policy Alliance and other allies, successfully ended an attempt to enshrine special rights for gender identity in the state Constitution.
Executive Director Nicole Theis says the key to success was working together.
