The start of the Abortion Committee debates
The committe stage, where we debate amendments to the proposed abortion legislation, is frustrating to say the least. Anti abortionists want to rehash the argument (that they spectacularly lost 2:1 in May). But its also frustrating when some amendments are ruled ‘in’, and others ‘out’ of order. Like one today, from Carol Nolan who wants to bill a woman for an abortion unless she’s dying. The other issue addressed in this video is criminality. 14 years for vasectomy? Of course not, so why would they even consider it for abortion. Criminality has no place in health legislation. We debated this at the Committee today.
