Vermont to Follow NY on 40 Week Abortion Legalization

Published

on

A new bill has been introduced to the Vermont legislator that would allow for legalized abortions up until 40 weeks.

“The bill, introduced Wednesday in the state House, would recognize abortion as a “fundamental human right” and ensure that the government does not deny, restrict or infringe upon a woman’s “right” to abort her unborn baby”, according to LifeNews.

This introduction follows suit after New York passed the legalization of late-term abortions on Tuesday, where the World Trade Center was lit pink to “celebrate” the new law.

The legislation in New York states that abortions may be performed past 24 weeks in situations where the pregnancy is determined to be unviable or the mother’s health is at risk. Also included in the new legislation is the right non-MDs to perform abortions, as Big League Politics reported,

“The Reproductive Health Act allows medical personnel other than doctors to perform abortion procedures, as long as they possess the necessary state licensing to do so. It also removes language proscribing certain abortion from the New York Criminal Code entirely, instead regulating the practice under public health code.”

The almost identical Vermont bill, that has 90 House co-sponsors, would allow for abortions to be performed up to 40 weeks with no restrictions and does not require a medical doctor to perform the abortion. Surprisingly, the “Republican” Governor, Phil Scott reportedly supports the abortion bill.

LifeNews reports that Planned Parenthood is a big proponent of this bill – being that the later in the pregnancy, the higher the prices for the abortion.

“Lawmakers are also seeking an amendment to the Vermont Constitution to protect the right to an abortion”, according to WCAX. The report includes a statement from Meagan Gallagher of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England, “We must pass the House abortion rights bill and the Senate equal rights constitutional amendment to ensure that reproductive rights are protected in Vermont.”

SICK: American Icon Plymouth Rock Vandalized, Spray-Painted in Massachusetts

It’s likely the vandalism is an anti-American hate crime.

Published

on

An icon of American heritage and civilization, Plymouth Rock, was found vandalized and spray-painted upon Monday morning by criminals at its namesake in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

Plymouth Rock symbolizes the first arrival of the pilgrims from England in North America in 1620 A.D. The vandalism was found just weeks before a ceremony intended to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the pilgrim’s arrival in Massachusetts.

The large boulder is marked with the characters ‘1620’ to symbolize the pilgrims’ arrival. The rock was the first sight of those who disembarked from the Mayflower in the New World.

It’s unclear what the red spray-paint on the rock is intended to convey, but there’s a strong possibility the vandalism is motivated by hatred towards the icon of American culture.

In addition to the rock, the spray-paint vandals also targeted a nearby statue intended to commemorate the first pilgrims to arrive in North America.

It’s also noteworthy that the vandalism was found on President’s Day, suggesting a further possibility of anti-American hatred as a motivation.

400th anniversary celebrations of the pilgrims’ arrival are scheduled for April, and to this day are a point of pride for many of their descendants who live in Massachusetts.

The director of a Plymouth cultural and tourism agency, Lea Filson, expressed her disappointment to see the icon of America so disrespected.

“Seeing this type of disrespect for the historic reminders of the Mayflower story is both sad and unsettling. The outpouring of concern and anger over the incident has been a positive ending to a thoughtless gesture.”

The town of Plymouth has already removed the vandalism from the rock, and local police are investigating to locate the culprits.
