Texas Abortion Law

Melinda Penner:
The filibuster in the Texas legislature over the abortion legislation has overshadowed what the law is actually meant to do.  One of the primary things the proposed law would do is ban late-term abortions (i.e. D&X abortions) that occur after the 20th week of gestation.  Not only are these children usually viable outside the womb, they feel pain, and the procedure is more like infanticide than abortion.  Greg describes the procedure in question here.  And by the way, a large majority of Americans think late-term abortions should be illegal.
