The Legislature goes into session today, Tuesday, October 29. On the session are two abortion-related bills.

Bill 193 would permit the implementation of the informed consent law to move forward without the printed materials having to be submitted to the "rule-making process." The following senators have committed in writing to supporting this amendment:

  1. Tony Ada (R)
  2. Chris Duenas (R)
  3. Michael Limtiaco (R)
  4. Brant McCreadie (R)
  5. Tommy Morrison (R)
  6. Rory Respicio (D)
  7. Dennis Rodriguez, Jr. (D)
One more is needed for passage. We assume that will be Senator Aguon since he introduced a similar measure.

Bill 195 would require "medically appropriate" treatment for children who survive an abortion procedure and would deem them human beings under Guam law.

In addition to praying for the passage of these bills we encourage you to keep an eye on the proceedings as per the TV channels noted on the press release which you can view here

The bills are listed as nos. 32 and 34 on the agenda. It is not possible at this point to speculate when the legislature will get to them, but keep on eye on this blog for updates.
