Florida House Committee Passes Bill to Ban Abortions on Babies With Down Syndrome

A bill in the Florida legislature would protect unborn babies with Down syndrome and other disabilities from eugenic, discriminatory abortions. Pro-life state House Bill 1221 passed a House subcommittee on Thursday in an 11-7 vote. If enacted, the legislation would prohibit abortionists from doing abortions if the reason is because an unborn baby has been diagnosed with a disability, such as Down syndrome.
