Reproductive Health Act

Yesterday we went to a talk that was put on by the Archdiocese of New York. The talk was on a bill that is trying to be passed in the Woman's Equality Act, a bill that, in truth, degrades women. This bill is called the Reproductive Health Act. In it, abortion would be made to be on demand without parental consent, with schools required to help girls get abortions, and letting anyone who is a licensed healthcare practitioner (including chiropractors, nurses assistants, dentists, whomever) to be allowed to perform an abortion. How is this safe or healthy? Among other things, the bill would also allow for those who abuse pregnant women with the intent of hurting the baby, as long as they hurt only the baby and not the mother, to get away without charges under any circumstance. That's liberating to women? As a woman myself, I find it very offensive!
