RESPONSE TO FREEMAN - PART 1

Recently, a bill limiting abortions to 20 weeks gestation was introduced in the Legislature. As expected, Guam's top abortion provider is opposing it and we appreciate the opposition as it gives us an opportunity to once again push the issue into view. 


Freeman apparently feels he can simply bully the people of Guam. Per the Guttmacher Institute:
"24 states impose prohibitions after a certain number of weeks; 17 of these states ban abortion at about 20 weeks post-fertilization or its equivalent of 22 weeks after the woman’s last menstrual period on the grounds that the fetus can feel pain at that point in gestation."
If 24 states can impose prohibitions after a certain number of weeks, and 17 have already passed bans at 20 weeks, then why not the people of Guam?

Freeman and his pro-aborts will argue that some of those bans have been challenged. So what. The Supreme Court once ruled that white men could own black men (Dred Scott, 1857).

And abortions overall have gone down:
