Florida senator files bill that would outlaw abortions 20 weeks into pregnancy

On Monday, in an attempted rebuff of the New York legislation allowing abortions beyond 24 weeks if a mother's health is at risk, state Sen. Joe Gruters filed a bill that would ban the procedure after 20 weeks in Florida.

The bill the "Florida Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act" would scale back current Florida law, which allows for abortions to be performed until roughly 24 weeks into term. The legislation mimics Gruters' first bill filed to the state House two years ago, which ultimately failed.

"The science is now very clear that unborn children over 20 weeks in the womb can feel pain as any other human can," Gruters, R-Sarasota, told the website Florida Politics, without citing any scientific study.

Gruters added: "That's why fetal anesthesia is routinely administered when surgery is performed on unborn children, and why stopping such cruel, ruthless procedures as poisoning and dismemberment on a human that feels pain and recoils from it is morally necessary."

1. Abortion

And of course its a man introducing the bill.

Until men develop the ability to get pregnant, be pregnant for nine months, and go through delivery, they need to shut the hell up. Its between a woman and her doctor. Period.
