He’s supporting a bill that would allow doctors to withhold information from their patients in order to stop them from having an abortion.
The latest bill — which is scheduled to be discussed by a legislative committee for a second time on Wednesday — contains a number of provisions which would give the state one of the most sweeping anti-abortion laws in the nation. Among the provisions is one which would exempt doctors from malpractice suits if they withhold information — in order to prevent an abortion — that could have prevented a health problem for the mother or child. A wrongful death suit could be filed in the event of the death of the mother.
Well that’s good at least. If the mother dies, then then you can file a suit. Jim dandy. Fuck.
