    Arizona gets “fetal-pain” 20-weeks abortion ban

    Bill: HB2036 (PDF)

    Sponsored by Rep. Kimberly Yee and signed into law by Gov. Jan Brewer, HB2036 adds and modifies certain statutes related to the regulation of abortion and abortion clinics. Most notably, HB2036 requires a medical determination of the gestational age of the unborn child and prohibits anyone from knowingly performing an abortion on a pregnant woman if the probable gestational age of the unborn child is at least 20 weeks. Violators will be guilty of a class 1 misdemeanor and are subject to license revocation, a $5,000 fine, and court damages for all psychological, emotional and physical injuries resulting from a violation.

    Nebraska fetal pain bill ‘axes Roe v. Wade’:

    Bill: LB 1103

    Abortion Pain Prevention Act. Under LB 1103, abortions after 20 weeks will not be allowed in Nebraska based on studies indicating an unborn child is capable of feeling pain by that stage in a pregnancy. The current standard is based on fetal viability, which is generally considered to occur around 22 to 24 weeks. It also will require physicians to report to state officials the point in the pregnancy at which abortions are performed.
