NYT Editorial Page Editor Asks, "What's Wrong With a 20-Week Abortion Ban?"

The New Times - Taking Note blog: What’s Wrong With a 20-Week Abortion Ban?, by Andrew Rosenthal:

The Texas House today passed the abortion restriction bill that State Senator Wendy Davis derailed last month.

One provision would move the point at which abortions are no longer legal to 20 weeks from 24 weeks. Another would require doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital and allow abortions to take place only in surgical centers.

The Catholic Association’s press release celebrating progress on the bill said it merely “seeks to raise standards for women’s health and limits the inhumane and heart-breaking practice of late-term abortion.”

So what’s the big deal? . . .
