Montana bill seeks abortion ban on 'pain-capable' fetuses [View all]

HELENA, Mont. Mar 24, 2017, 10:51 PM ET

The Montana Senate on Friday advanced a proposal seeking to extend protections to so-called "pain-capable" fetuses.

If approved, Montana would join more than a dozen states adopting laws protecting pain-capable fetuses.

The measure is one of a pair of anti-abortion bills that continued moving through the Montana Legislature. Earlier in the week, a House committee further advanced a bill that would effectively ban all abortions after 24 weeks of pregnancy by requiring doctors to save a fetus.

Opponents decried both measures as attacks on a woman's right to choose an abortion.

I make it a point to check news in other states, especially those that don't get a lot of national coverage unless there's a weather disaster there. But you know the phrase, "Laboratories of Democracy," right? What's going on in Utah, Alaska or Montana today might be coming to your state or mine before long.

PS: in case you're still wondering, I'm against this shitty bill and all those like it.
