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.”

Harvard Law School Planning Conference to Smear and Silence Homeschoolers
It seems doubtful the conference will feature parents’ rights advocates.
Harvard Law School is planning a conference on the topic of homeschooling, with speakers and content of the tenative June summit suggesting the event will be very negative towards the practice.
The Homeschooling Summit: Problems, Politics, and Prospects for Reform is planned for June 18-19th. The conference listing states that a focus of the conference will be to “discuss child rights in connection with homeschooling in the United States.”
Further investigation of the conference’s premise suggests it’s outright hostile to the notion of homeschooling entirely. One event scheduled for the second day of the conference is entitled “Concerns with Homeschooling.”
The Home School Legal Defense Association questioned what seemed to be the outright hostility to homeschooling that will be part of the event, pointing out the concerning public statements of some of the educators participating in the summit.
The pro-homeschooling rights group highlighted the anti-homeschooling track records of the event’s speakers.
Some, such as College of William and Mary law professor James Dwyer, have fundamentally questioned the rights of parents to homeschool their children. Dwyer has argued in law review article that “the claim that parents should have child-rearing rights—rather than simply being permitted to perform parental duties and to make certain decisions on a child’s behalf in accordance with the child’s rights—is inconsistent with principles deeply embedded in our law and morality.”
It almost seems anachronistic that the fixings of elite cultural liberalism are maintaining themselves in the midst of the national Chinese coronavirus epidemic, an event that has actually forced the American public and policy makers to focus on things that matter. This anti-homeschooling summit might end up being cancelled because of the coronavirus epidemic. But it any case, Harvard Law’s academic elites seem intent to question the rights of homeschoolers either way.
