The Vermont House voted to pass a staggering bill that would allow abortion at any stage of pregnancy and for any reason whatsoever.

Critics say the legislation is more expansive of abortion rights than the extremist bills passed in New York and Virginia.

“Every individual who becomes pregnant has the fundamental right to choose to carry a pregnancy to term, give birth to a child, or to have an abortion,” the bill reads.

It passed by a vote of 106 to 36.

The bill would also strip unborn children of any rights or recognition of their personhood by the state.

“A fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus shall not have independent rights under Vermont law,” it reads.

Republicans introduced several amendments to the bill, including one that would require women to receive an ultrasound before aborting their baby, but the objections were voted down by Democrats.

Another amendment would require minors to have parental consent before aborting a child — that was voted down as well.

Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review excoriated Democrats who support the law, saying it “makes a frightening statement about the Democratic Party’s increasingly extreme view of abortion rights.”

The bill goes to the Vermont Senate next, where Democrats hold a supermajority. Vermont Gov. Phil Scott (D) has already indicated that he will sign the bill if it passes.

    These people have gone full Lucifarian and they’re going to pay the price.

    On the other hand why not make abortion valid up to 21? It would save many parents from a lot of misery.

      Why can’t we abort Democrats? Apparently they are just failed fetuses that aren’t viable.

        Democrats, liberals and Progressives are the ones murdering their children. Hopefully this attrition will result eventually in their elimination from the face of the earth, and those of us who truly love our children and love and respect life from conception to natural death will be left in peace.

          If you really loved children, Mr. Patriot, you would support measures to ensure affordable health care, government agencies that protect them from abuse and neglect, well funded public schools, and affordable colleges. But for many of you so-called patriots, your obsession with abortion has less to do with loving children than with wanting to hobble women.

          And, by the way, there’s zero evidence that abortions are performed only on liberals. Certainly the sleazy behavior of some of your favorite Republican officials makes it obvious that they’re not THAT concerned about unwanted children. Better stop listening to Sean Hannity and learn the facts instead.

            How many children have you murdered Olivia? A child should not be a slave to its mother, able to keep or eliminate the baby at a moments notice.
            Baby’s should have the same rights as all children who grew in the womb and were nurtured after birth.
            As far as the rest of your arrogant comment, when people find proper employment they usually can get decent healthcare from their employers. If you had a job, you might understand.
            As far as education, we spend MORE per child than any other industrialized nation on the planet. The reason our schools are failing is due to waste. Public schools are just like the govt, everyone thinks they know what they’re doing when they obviously haven’t a clue.

            Olivia, I don’t watch Hannity, but I to learn the facts.

            “But, and here is the second finding that stands out from the Guttmacher Institute’s statistics, the abortion rate varies widely among the states, and there is a high correlation between the abortion rate and voting behavior. Only 11 states and Washington, D.C. have abortion rates above the national average of 19.4. They include Hawaii, California, and Nevada in the West, Florida in the South, and seven of the eight states through which the Acela trains run in the Northeast—Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and Maryland plus D.C. All of these voted for Barack Obama in 2008; all but Nevada and Florida voted for John Kerry in 2004 and Al Gore in 2000. AEI.org

            Thing is, I don’t know why it matters to you. Isn’t murder-murder no matter on whom it is performed? And the sleazy sex life of a R or D, while disgusting, is also irrelevant. You’re quite adept at your distraction tactics though. The unborn baby has as much right to life and liberty as the Mother who is carrying him/her. Who wouldn’t fight for his/her voice to be heard whether they be liberals or conservatives? These mothers with rights that you speak of have every right to their own bodies as long as another’s isn’t involved.

            Your kidding right? A bad joke and comment! If you want free everything, go to a socialist country like Venezuela. No one has the right to abort a human just because you can’t pay for the healthcare, education and etc etc, etc! How about abstinence? Or taking a birth control pill, or better yet get a vasectomy! Killing is not an option, and you can explain that to God when you see Him, and believe me…you will one day!Its down right evil what the democrats are doing and for that fact anyone who thinks this is normal! You might as well let all the murderous criminals out of jail, because they were prosecuted unfairly! That s what’s coming next in this country! A Dispicable act and evil to boot!!

    Vermont, et al, and Nazism: peas in a pod!!

    “This was not the first such statement. On 25 November 1939, shortly
    after the occupation of Poland, a Nazi SS organization called the
    Reich Commission for Strengthening of Germandom (RKFDV)[6] issued
    this decree:

    All measures which have the tendency to limit the births
    are to be tolerated or to be supported. Abortion in the
    remaining area [of Poland] must be declared free from
    punishment. The means for abortion and contraceptive
    means may be offered publicly without police restriction.
    Homosexuality is always to be declared legal. The
    institutions and persons involved professionally in
    abortion practices are not to be interfered with by
    police.[7]

    This policy was confirmed on 27 May 1941 at a Ministry of the
    Interior conference in Berlin. There a group of experts recommended
    population control measures for Poland that included authorization of
    abortion whenever the mother requested it.[8] On 19 October 1941, a
    decree applied the measures to the Polish population. Hitler’s 23
    July 1942 decree extended it to other parts of Eastern Europe. Hitler
    confirmed his order on August 5.[9]”

      As someone who happened to come out of the womb 3 months early 60 years ago, I would argue with you. I wasn’t just an unborn fetus, I managed to suck in air and live a pretty good life so far. With your logic a woman should be able to abort “a fetus” much older than I was when I was born. Sorry, that’s killing a human.

    I understand that these abortion centers also sell dead babies and baby parts after the abortions. Planned Parenthood, are one of the leaders of this practice. Must be these centers need a much bigger income so they can pay off the government to support there “business”. These people murder full term babies. Look at a picture of a new born baby, then commit an abortion on the baby a woman doesnt want and know this tiny baby smiles in the womb, crys in the womb and hears in the womb. Killing a baby born because it will ruin your life is reason to kill? It makes me cry.

    There once was a time when a woman would get pregnant, have the baby, care for and love said baby. In today’s world, all you have to do before or after the baby is born is say, “I don’t want this baby!” and, thanks to the liberal Socialists (in the past they were the Democrats) that baby can NOW be murdered legally! Or is it legal? Hillary Clinton said that a baby is not a human being until that baby is born. So, any deaths of babies outside of the womb should definitely be considered murder. A pregnant woman walking down the street decides she wants a late term abortion. She asks her friend where she can go to get one. Her friend replies, “Oh you silly girl! We are standing in front of the Democratic office NOW!” The Socialist Democrats have even gone one step further for abortions. Pelosi and the rest of the Godless have given to the United Nations 35.5 million dollars of our tax money to “help” the UN provide abortions around the world. The Socialists would not give Trump money to protect this country at our southern border but they, in their lack of wisdom, gave it to the U.N. to assist in abortions around the globe! Soon, if not now, the Socialist Democrats in America will be the leading cause of infant deaths in America and around the globe! Yes, the Socialist Democrats have waged war upon our unborn and just born babies. May God be with our babies.

    The writer of this article clearly assumes s/he’s speaking to a bunch of morons. “The bill would also strip unborn children of any rights or recognition of their personhood by the state.” Well, duh—FETUSES DON’T HAVE RIGHTS under the law. Never have had rights—not in the U.S., or in any other country that I’m aware of.

    The bill merely makes it possible for women who MUST terminate a pregnancy (whether or not they want to) do it without having to jump through all the artificial hoops that the Republican party wishes to subject them to.

    It always amuses me that Republicans boast of being “the party of small government.” Yet here they are, doing their best to micromanage women’s reproductive systems, up to and including passing silly, medically unnecessary laws to punish women for trying to access a legally enshrined RIGHT.

    I can not conceive of the ANGUISH a girl or women goes through when she decides to have an abortion. I don’t believe that God wants a woman who has been RAPED to have the child of a RAPIST? Do you think that God is so petty that aborted souls are not put back into the bodies of loving women.
    Listen up people. God did not write the Bible. Men wrote the Bible and put in or took out words that would keep them in power. What happened to the other apostles. All I hear about are words from Matthew,Mark, Luke and John. Were there not 12 apostles? Is it not possible that some of the words that these 8 wrote contradicted these 4 and were left out? God and Jesus are all about LOVE. How dare someone tell a woman what she can or can’t do with her OWN body ESPECIALLY the Government. It should be left up to the woman and her doctor and nobody else because it is a MEDICAL issue.
    If you want to stop Abortions, have mandatory Sex Education in all schools where they are taught on how NOT to get Pregnant. Like using condoms or the pill. After having sex, take a pregnancy test and if you are pregnant and don’t want a baby take a plan B pill. Must be taken within 3 to 5 days. As with all Medications there are side effects. Check with your doctor for the best information
